Why a glass of water? Well, I have NO problem with the book itself. It's smart, and may be one of my favorites. Dan Brown rocks.
The glass of water would be used to wet the "whistle" of the man who read this book. What I mean is this. Take a Microphone-Place it to your mouth. Turn up the volume. Now, move you mouth. Smack your lips, stick your tounge to the roof, and let it slap around, stick your lips to your teeth, and pull then off over and over. Now try to speak, while performing these oral gymnastics, and you'll see what I had to listen to.
Book was excellent. After an hour, you don't notice the slurping noises, except when you stop the recording,and restart it.
