I haven't read DC. I heard from different reliable sources that it really wasn't all that good. Truly, I'm not interested in anything with religious overtones even if it is a fictionalized book that's supposed to shake the foundations of Christianity.

It's really too bad about Da Vinci Code. It is actually a good read. I read it before I really knew about the controversy, back when it was just a good story. It's like Indiana Jones for nerds. I'm actually kinda sorry that the hype has ruined it, because now no one can read it just as the good story it is, without analyzing it about religious overtones.

Perhaps you might try Dan Brown's other book with the same main character. It's called 'Angels and Demons". It's the same type of good story, but I haven't heard much drama about the content. If you're looking for something to read, maybe give it a try and that way you would know whether you would have liked Da Vinci code if it didn't have the hype surrounding it.

I understand why you think you won't like Da Vinci code though, I probably would think the same. I can't stand preachy books with deeper meaning, and that's what I would be expecting from it if I read it now for the first time. It's really too bad.

Angels and Demons is a really fast paced read, and again my best description is Indiana Jones for nerds *l*.
