Dan Brown has written a few books and they are very contriversial, but my friends opinion on the Da Vinchi Code's popularity is because it is the book the church hates the most. Maybe, maybe not. But from reading Angels and Demons, I can truely see how some people get mad, but they forget, it is a piece of FICTION with some historical backround and nothing more.

True, MF. After all, who really knows what happened at that time? I mean, I'm catholic, I believe in Jesus, but there are many stories that I just can't buy. The bible was edited so many times, after so many councils, I believe very few people(or maybe none) really know the trueth behind it.
But what the hell! The book is damned good...hehehe

Apparantly he didn't mean it to be fiction- he was writing it as a fact!

Read Angels and Demons first, then DaVC. Have also read Digital Fortress and Deception Point (all these are Dan Brown books). Dig.Fort. is about the NSA which is currently in the news. Really uncanny, when you remember Dig.Fort. was published prior to all this wiretapping stuff about NSA. (Although most cynics knew about this kind of government intrusion stuff for many many many years. Anyway, DaVC was a good read (but I think A&D was better). Won't see the movie because I can't stand the modern movies anyway. Give me the old time stuff. Their special effects were much more ingenious (e.g., the San Francisco earthquake in the old 1930-something movie). Just a luddite, reactionary at heart.

I read Angels and Demons, I finished it just the other day. It was a really really good book.

Went to see the movie today. Thought it was interesting and stuck closely to the book.

I suspect many critics were expecting an Indiana Jones type adventure. It was a bit more dark cabals and more low key than the swashbuckling Harrison Ford with tombs full of all sorts of creepy crawlies.

From what little I know about the Catholic Church, I can see why they had such a fit. I kept expecting the film to stop and cries of "Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!"`

There were some silly lines, for example on the bus in London, "I have to find a library, quickly"! All and all though, good movie.

Oooh, I like that line, mike!!! I think I'll make it into a bumper sticker.

"I have to find a library, quickly!" LOL! Imagine if someone came up to you in real life and said that!
