What is Dan Brown’s writing style?
Brown starts off with an intriguing incident and the complete plot revolves about that.Often he goes back and forth in time during the narration to give the reader a complete overview of what actually happened.He gives a lot of attention to detail while describing characters, their emotions, monuments, etc and talks about a lot of facts and trivia that are really interesting and are unknown to the readers more often than not.The story takes place in a very short time and is hence fast-paced.
