meh. i have no real feelings on the da vinci code. maybe jesus had a child, maybe he was gay. we'll never know the real truth anyway.

True Arty, we may never know. Gay? I hear the copying machines of millions of angry Christians making your wanted poster LOL!

In many respects, the actual subject of the book/film/t-shirt is/are irrelevant.

It is an exciting, will they/wont they, cops 'n' robbers, code-breaking chase.

A page-turning thriller as a book and breathtaking as a film.

(Incidentally if Dan Brown HAPPENS to read this, my bank account number is....) ;-)

I know you are joking of course arty butI have been to, and drunk from, St Paul's Well in Tarsus. (I think it was him who had the vision on the road to Damascus???). It is supposed to stand where his home did. Who knows?

It is in south-central Turkey.

Arty, Ian McKellen was quoted the other day saying that this story was clearly indicating that Jesus was anything but gay.
If they are sharpening their axes then doesnt that raise moral dilemmas about their interpretation of the commandments?
Anyway as for someting completely different, on the subject of the previous masters of the Priory of Sion, I noticed on wikipedia that Nicolas Flamel was mentioned. Bizarre how this book should be connected with Harry Potter as well! I dont even want to speculate on what crazy theories one might make of that fact...... ;)

I read another of Dan brown's novels after reading The Da Vinci Code - the one where the plot is mostly under the ice shelf off Northern Canada - and both books are extremely well written and enjoyable. I'll probably see the movie when it appears on TV in a few years time.

Arty, if you head to Damascus, (unless it is Damascus, Maryland) you will be heading out of the frying pan and into the fire.

Ken, I read another Dan Brown novel that took place in Maryland and Portugal. I actually enjoyed that more than Da Vinci Code.

Arty, I know you were joking, as I said, and I took no offence - it just reminded me of a very pleasant drive we did all around Turkey (except the east which was very dangerous at the time!).

Ken - you read Deception Point, and Mike, you read Digital Fortress (except I think its Spain, not Portugal? I may have that wrong).

May I recommend Angels and Demons, which is his other book, and which also has Robert Langdon (from The Da Vinci Code) as its hero?

I understand he is now writing a fifth book.

Can't wait!!

Anne
