: : When I first read DaVinci code, the only thing I knew about it was that it was about solving a mystery that had to do with ancient and famous pieces of art and secret societies, sending secret messages to each other over the years using art. I mean, doesn't that sound cool? *l*

: : As I read, turned out the secret messages were religous in nature. *shrug* Just so happens.

: I know I probably totally would have loved it if it hadn't been hyped so much. I hate it when people refuse to read HP because they don't want to follow a hyped up trend so I should just bite the bullet and read it. One of these years I guess. . . . My reading has been pathetic this year. I don't think I'll break 25 books in 2006.

I didn't like the book, although I liked the mystery and clue solving aspects...that was neat. What I didn't like was the poorly written characters who had little or no depth or growth. And the cliches regarding the evil characters. There is no way I would classify Brown as a great or even good author and am still puzzled at the books popularity. But then I rarely seem to like what is popular, so it fits.
