From the Language Log blog. I honestly didn’t know he was that bad an author!

I’m not usually on the Dan Brown desk here at Language Log Plaza — that’s Geoff Pullum’s domain — but this one came to me (from Bruce Webster). By Tom Chivers on the Telegraph‘s site:

The Lost Symbol, the latest novel by The Da Vinci Code author Dan Brown, has gone on sale. We pick 20 of the clumsiest phrases from it and from his earlier works.

Chivers quotes Geoff P. on Brown’s writing. And there’s space for comments and for nominations of further regrettable quotes from the Brownian oeuvre.
