Quite honestly, he's well enough off that he can simply thumb his nose at his erstwhile critics.  Why should he waste a moment's time getting his undies in a twist?  It's not like he was writing for the Harvard Lit Crit crowd in the first place.

At the time I read his FICTION books, I enjoyed them.  I wouldn't know a tautology from a spare tire.

Dan Brown fiction is aimed at consumers that like a good story. Like James Patterson or Michael Connolly.

No intention by author or reader to test for literary style or other technicalities.

Regarding movies, I compare the critics to the viewers on Rotten Tomatoes and frequently, the viewers like movies better than the professional critics.
