Now that the advanced class focus groups have started, this kind of criticism – the sharp, nasty kind – is not required thank you very much. Fun to read, though perhaps not so nice if you’re on the receiving end . . .

and Michael Deacon has a bash at producing some himself – 
Dan Brown fans need not be offended. As Mr James points out, ‘the less his talent, the more amazing his achievement’!
