(I had some friends who loved the story and didn't care about the research stuff. So my opinion may be basd on the fact I'm nerdy. )
But at least the pews never attend yoga!
Thanks for the reply.

Shoot for the moon and even if you miss you'll still be among the stars.
(a) not being particularly well-written (but probably no worse than other "fun reads"). If you don't mind a book that's all plot-driven with poorly developed characters, this won't bother you. I have to say it was a fast read, though bogged down toward the last quarter for me.
(b) the way it plays fast and loose with facts. Just enough factual information to make you think all of the "facts" he relates are real.
There is a TON of misinformation and personal-interpretation- presented-as-fact. The easily verified art history information is even full of misinformation!
(b) making a much bigger deal out of the "big revelation" that I think
it warranted. Maybe it's just me, but I didn't see why this "information" would be quite so earth-shattering that there needed to be a huge conspiracy covering it up. I understood his premise, but I have heard this theory before. Somewhere (I THINK on here) there was a thread about the implications this idea would have for Christianity, esp. Catholicism.
Most of the people I know really liked this book, however.
"Honey Badger don't care!"
This is what prevented me from finishing the book. Great ideas usually carry a lot of weight with me...but very poorly developed characters prevented the book from gaining more depth. I am convinced Brown took writing 101 from John Grisham in college. Needless to say, an interesting plot does not a good book make!
My best friend used to be a Catholic priest and he hated it because it was so flawed. He couldn't get past the stuff that made no sense.
Question: Who do you think is better suited to play the lead male character in the Da Vinci Code movie...?I really am upset that Tom Hanks was chosen. ...I might not see the movie because of him.
Hey Kurlee, did you steal my dog?
I loved it, and i have to agree don't read too much into it. I thought it was one of the best books i've ever read and is one of the few books that i would read again.
I picked up Deception Point the other day after seeing this post.. It's really good so far. I sit and read it when I can and I'm always like ok one more chapter one more chapter lol so by the time I get done saying one more chapter it's pretty late.... Thanks for the suggestion of this book I've been in Kind of a book slump the last month or so. I've gotten like 6 books from the library and hadn't finished any of them until I got this one hopefully I will get out of my slump
What kind is your dog? You have any more pictures?
I ended up reading all three of Dan Browns books. Pretty good over all. The Deception Point one was a bit hard for me to get through for some reason. It's like I just knew what was going to happen.
I thought Angels And Demons was good but the end got out of hand. Kinda ruined the book some.
She is a Bernese Moutain Dog X Black Labrador Retriever mix.
Oh my gosh! She is so cute! Looks a lot like our dog!! How funny!
Sounds like a good mix! I love both Labrador and Bernese Mountain Dog.
Super cute! Love the name too!
Our dog (Daisy) is a Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd mix.
She has wavy hair on her back.
I'd say a 2A.
Daisy is a little over 1½ years old now. She is a defenite straighty. Maybe slightly wavy on the tail. 2C with it being so thick.
(Sorry all for changing the subject on this thread a little.)
