i work in a bookstore, and i have so many people asking me about that book, i hate it simply because the storyline is so similar to Angels & Demons, i think da vinci code is only selling so well because people keep talking about it, and im sick of it!!
I've read it, and have even read Angels & Demons. Both are good and interesting, and Dan Brown claims that all the stuff in Angels & Demons is true, apart from the ambigrams which are cleverly designed by John Langdon. But Da Vinci Code has a clever plot, and has some surprises as well. Both are easy-reading, and are quite funny as well.
I read it, enjoyed it... it is so hard for me to bite my tounge with all these people nay-saying it becuase it is anti-jesus... well i should say anti-catholicism... at least in that it goes against the beliefs of the Church, i would suggest people to read it, but at the same time take the time to do some honest research or the subject, and not just what the bible says...
A movie?! I positively love that book. The movie won't be as good by nature, but considering how good the book was, the movie will be well worth it. It's hard to tell sometimes whther or not the information the author supplies is accurate or fictional. Since he does say that some of the information is true.
