In the country of the blind

I've been reading a book borrowed from a friend, In the country of the blind by Michael Flynn.

It's a conspiracy novel, in the same genre as The da Vinci code, but doesn't seem to have enjoyed anything like the same sales success. I haven't finished it yet, but I've enjoyed what I've read so far, and one thing that strikes me about it is that it is so much better than The da Vinci code, but there hasn't been nearly as much hype about it. I've never seen it on sale in any bookshop. I haven't read any similar hype about it, but it seems far more deserving of the hype.

Perhaps I'll change my opinion when I've finished reading it.
