Read This Hilarious Homage While Waiting For Dan Brown's Next Thriller

Literary Fiction
“E.R. Escober’s The Givenchy Code should be a best seller, because Escober does for Dan Brown what Frederick Crews did for WINNIE THE POOH, i.e., totally tears him apart in a loving manner and providing the grateful reader with hours of thankful chuckles.”


 


 

Kevin Killian, San Francisco-based prolific poet, novelist, critic and playwright, recently reviewed E.R. Escober’s The Givenchy Code. Here’s the full text of the review from someone who really “got” what the author intended out of this hilarious homage to Dan Brown’s Da Vinci Code.


 “I picked up E.R. Escober's book THE GIVENCHY CODE AN HOMAGE AND A PARODY on the recommendation of a friend, who saw a copy of Dan Brown's THE DA VINCI CODE in a store window, and who told me that he had recently laughed himself silly with this cheeky little parody.
All of Dan Brown's affectations are affectionately skewered here. In The DA VINCI CODE, we learned a lot of history that was sometimes not so subtly disguised as fiction. Same thing occurs in GIVENCHY. Chapter 55 alone, the history of sparkling wine, is worth the price of this cunning book.

It should be a best seller, because Escober does for Dan Brown what Frederick Crews did for WINNIE THE POOH, i.e., totally tears him apart in a loving manner and providing the grateful reader with hours of thankful chuckles. The riddles that Fr. Theo and Puca must solve are mind-numbingly funny, as well as being sort of difficult. For example, What do Superman, Moses, and the Cabbage Patch Kids all have in common?

Instead of THE LAST SUPPER, Escober lowers the boom this time on the famous MONA LISA. She is smiling and you will be too. Enjoy this excellent send up and remember: "The Holy Grail is not a cup!"

 

The Givenchy Code: An Homage and a Parody is available at Xlibris.Com, Amazon.com and other outlets. ISBN # 1-4134-8031-4
