Yeah...I just think that the connections he makes are incredible. Like with the Last Supper and stuff. It's just really cool. The connections he makes about Christianity are interesting though. I think that a lot of people who are like, "THIS BOOK IS COMPLETE, TOTAL CRAP" (without giving any reason why the book is bad in a literature sense) have a difficult time questioning their beliefs.

The book does not offend me as a person of faith, it offends me as a historian and a person of reason.

The author, Dan Brown, lives two towns over from me. Let's just say he's quite popular around here now. Yet I haven't gotten myself to read this yet.

The DaVinci Code is a really great book. If you liked this book, read his others. All of them are fantastic.

I thought it was written very well, the research alone is quite impressive and its all how you as a person translate it.
It is a novel and people have to remember that.

I think Umberto Eco's "Foucault's Pendulum" is a better novel on this subject.

both the Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons are great reads - not exactly high literary content but fun to read and bring up religious questions.

I preferred Angles and Demons but I think the Da Vinci Code will make a great movie

I've reade all four of Dan Brown's books. He's a great author in my opinion. All his books have factual background information that's so interesting, to me, anyways.

All the facts put into the DaVinci Code (my favorite book of all time) makes you wonder about different things. I've always been rased a Catholic and I still believe in God and the Church and all that...but it still makes you question it all.

...I loved that book!

I read the book. It didn't change any of my Catholic beliefs......I'd come to the stuff about Jesus and Mary Magdeline and stuff and think "hey, I'd rather believe my catechism than a popular writer". It was a good read, I did enjoy reading the book, and I don't think it's anything to be upset about. Some Christians really burned up alot of emotional steam over it, but I didn't.

Angels and Demons is a much better book. I was really dissapointed that Da Vinci isn't really the milestone in the book that the title paints it to be.

To those that say it has crappy sense of history, which parts are inaccurate? Brown just says everything in such a matter of fact way that you really can't help but take for granted what he's saying.

He's a very amateurish author, too, I don't know why I get that sense. The whole Mickey Mouse watch thing is just .

If you read The Da Vinci Code you at least need to do yourself a favor and read The Da Vinci Hoax as well. 'Nuff said.
