    Dave quoted Thriller Writers' rules:

    > By definition, if a thriller does not thrill, it is not doing its job.

    Does this mean that a bad thriller is not a thriller? I've read and tried to read lots of books that just didn't thrill me. For example, Dan Brown's THE DA VINCI CODE. It was a fast read, but exactly thrilling. Yet, it *is* very clearly a thriller.
