I read the book and it was an interesting read but not a great one. All the hype as far as I'm concerned is the theory behind him concerning Christ. I think it will make a good movie, the story was decent and somewhat suspenseful.

The greatest conspiracy of the past 2000 years will be unravelled......

The DaVinci Code is all about the other side of Christianity the Roman Catholic Church does not want us to see. What is the Holy Grail? Does it exist? Is the Bible the whole truth? Was Jesus really Devine? What is Opus Dei,who belonged to the secret society founded in 1099 called The Priory of Sion? All descriptions of artwork, architecture, documents, and secret rituals in this novel are real. Alot of the book refers to facts in history and the search for the truth. I absolutely LOVED the book and cannot wait to see the movie.

I have read both Angels and Demons and the Da Vinci Code and I really enjoyed both of them. It has a lot of facts and history in it, very little creativity was needed to string together a story. It's all so possible, I think that is what scares the religious authorities. It's as possible as the stories in the Bible. It makes you question a lot of what you are taught if you were raised Catholic like me, or Christian in general. I found it very clever and full of suspense. I imagine the movie will be good, frankly Tom Hanks is not how I pictured the main character to look or be like, but ok, sure.

The only thing that I didn't expect (not giving anything away) is that both books have a similar formula, even though they still tell very different stories. Those who have read both will know what I mean.

Two of the best books I have ever read.

Some of the documents mentioned in the book are actually fictional, but the author thought they were real when he wrote the book.

Should be a good movie, I too was hoping for a different actor other than Tom Hanks to play the lead. Oh well.

Josy, I'm glad you said that, I hadn't heard whether the other two were any good or not. That sounds like something I would like, I will have to check them out. Thanks!
