Ok so I was up late one night trying to entertain myself, and I picked up The DaVinci Code. It was really good, took me just a few day to read it. Its not very long, about 350 pages or so, it all takes place over about three days. Its mainly fiction, but has some bits of history about like, pagan symbols. its very interesting, because it puts a whole new look at the infamous Holy Grail. i recommend it highy to you guys.

^^;; I want to read that, but haven't...
Also, along those lines, anyone who liked the DaVinci Code should also read Angels and Demons - it's really cool, with history and artwork and ancient symbols involved, but is again fiction. It's the prequel to the DaVinci Code, is a little longer, and very, very suspenseful. I almost read all 450-odd pages in one sitting o.o;;

I love the DaVinci Code for all the contreversy it caused. It's great when a seemingly normal book becomes so scandalous :)

yeah. I find that kind of reaction great. I mean, if its a fiction novel, why get all worked up over it? I dunno, maybe thats just me. I love over reactions. ^_^

uggh. The Da Vinci Code is a great fiction book in it's own respects but I hate the cultlike following it has. It's still fiction and I wish people would just take it for what it is. Sadly that has repulsed me so much that I just can't read any other Dan Brown book now.

That's a bummer...in my opinion some of his other stuff is better
I have never read his stuff either, but this is what I heard:
1. Dan Brown has good ideas but is a terrible author.
2. It has to do with Jesus or some other christian hero.
3. If you are terribly to the right wing, you will hate it. If you are an anarchist (as some of the conservatives call the liberals), you will love it.
Is any of this true?

I don't know, I'm hella liberal, born and raised. I did like it immediatly after reading it but the first one is right. He is not a very good author at all, the ideas are good, I think he would make it quite well as a business man. He knows how to make money, and he's making such a big ol' lot of it. If you have the time, read it. If not, it's not a loss.

In my opinion, Dan Brown is an average writer. It's a good premise for a book, but frankly the only reason it was unputdownable was because the chapters flicked about that much that nothing got answered. And I like answers! His style is really stilted and annoying. Still, it's been a bestseller for, like, months as far as I know, so it seems to work for him!
