I'm about half done with TDC. It's quite good, as a Ludlum/Follett-type thriller. But the best parts, to me, are the various discussions about the history of the Church, the Holy Grail, Leonardo Da Vinci's paintings (take a fresh look at The Last Supper-you'll be surprised), and more. Even if the premise is a little out there, it's still refreshing to read a trashy thriller that actually brings up some good points about religion, art, and history.Erik
I just finished this book yesterday, and I loved it!!! I have reserved 'Angels and Demons' from the library but there seems to be quite a backlog for that book. So I guess I will read 'Harry Potter' instead...
I just finished this book yesterday, and I loved it!!! I have reserved 'Angels and Demons' from the library but there seems to be quite a backlog for that book. Just placed a hold. Kind of a long wait too at my library. (What about this plagiarism charge against Brown? I think it's just sour grapes on the other author's part.)http://www.ajc.com/living/content/living/ap/ap_story.html/Entertainment/AP.V4245.AP-Da-Vinci-Disput.htmlSo I guess I will read 'Harry Potter' instead... Not me. I abhor Harry Potter. (But at least he gets kids reading.)Erik
Well, I put off reading Harry Potter for many months. But once I started, I was hooked. Though I can't say I'm in the mood for it now. But yeah, it's good to get kids reading. (In my day, it was Nancy Drew).I would much rather be reading 'Angels and Demons' now. I think there's alot of other literature out there that claims to have had that story first!!!I really cannot stop thinking about The DaVinci Code, though. I will probably list that as one of the best books I've read this year.Why do you abhor HP?
I really cannot stop thinking about The DaVinci Code, though. I don't usually read this genre but I just ordered a used copy...the description and reviews on amazon made it irresistable. Then I logged on and saw your comments.I'm looking forward to getting it! I like reviewing my religious knowledge while reading a good book!RBSa retired Catholic
