Dan Brown without a doubt. You know an author is controversial when the Catholic church wants to boycott their novel and other authors take turns to insult it. Brown is not a spectacular writer, but he knows how to tells an interesting story that keeps reader turning the pages. I know a lot of critics felt that The Da Vinci Code was a terrible novel, but nobody can dispute what a cultural phenomena it became. As an aspiring writer myself it gives me hope that I could one day write something that will entertain people that much. Personally, I find the stuff written by Brown to be much more entertaining than say the massive books written by so called "masters" that are barely readable.
Which authors do you love, but critics do not?
