But DC did make a bigger hit than AD.

I saw the Da Vinci Code in the cinema today, and finished the book last Sunday. It wasn't that bad, there was something about it that kept me reading, but....there is something about it that isn't...right? I can't put my finger on it, but something didn't feel right. Maybe it's because it's sort of 'dull' [for want of a better word], the riddles, codes and info about history/religion keep it intresting, but the actual characters and plot line isn't dull. It makes a fantastic book if you want to learn about stuff, and if you want to break codes etc but if you want a really good book to read [notice I didn't say well written, because it is well written] then this isn't that kind of book.

I'm not making much sense, am I?

No, you're actually making a lot of sense. I [s]fell asleep[/s] didn't find the book, plot or characters exceptional. It's the information, facts,riddles etc kept me awake. I didn't like it that much....*shrugs*

Actualy, I liked the "psuedo-history, and psuedo-science." I think it's what made the book a bit more intresting. If I didn't know better, I would have believed everything it said [apart from the Sophie being the descendent thing, that was just fictional.] I think it's because it's woven with stuff we're all familar with, or at least have heard of, ie. Mona Lisa, Da Vinci, Mary whatshername. So, to someone who doesn't know much about that area [e.g. me] it is actualy quite convincing.

I'll admit that it's cool, but the problem is that many people "don't know better" and would actually believe it the stuff for being all true.

It's sort of like those unrealistic situations in movies. People pick them up and think that they're true.

So, an article that sorts out the science from the psuedo-science of DC.

You would have thought that once people see the fictiony bit of the story [Sophie being the descendent, him finding the tomb thing] they would have seen that it couldn't all be real.

I just finished reading that page you linked me too, quite intresting. It obviously shows that the novel as a whole is fictional.

I was wondering, do you have know any sites/articles which talk/explain about the actualy historical bits that Brown mentions? And is the theory that the Holy Grail is actualy Mary Magdalen [sp] been said before or did he make that up too? Does anyone know? Because I have next-to-nothing info about that area.

*Nods head in agreement*

I liked both. Reading the DV, like most people, kind of got me into Dan Brown. I read Angles and Demons (believe it or not my teacher who reads us books for five-year-olds, loaned me her personal copy) and loved it. I also liked Deception Point and Digital Fortress. The one thing that annoys me is the fact that in the end of all of them someone you liked and thought was a good guy turned out to be evil.

I think that at the end he thinks that it makes a very cunning plot twist, but it makes me angry! Like in DV, I liked Teabing!

They weren't bad at all.
I don't take the books seriously, of course, as some things,
such as the Priory, were proven to be fabricated.
