I listened to this one while driving to and fro (book on tape). I got hooked, I will admit, but I don't think I could have read it. Dan Brown loves to cram as much possible detail into his books as he can...which makes this reader feel as if he thinks I can't figure certain things out for myself. Also, Angels and Demons...his book before this one has the exact same story premise...a few names and places were changed. DaVinci Code was interesting, but as always, overrated and overpublicized by the New York Times, among others.
I am a little confused this book doesn't look very big and you read it last year. Did it take you all year? And you being inpatient, I would have never guessed!!!
I'm with you Barry!! I bought the book about 6 months ago and I am only to the 3rd chapter. I must not have the same literary sense as others. I'll stick with my Ann Rule and John Grisham.
Have the book....hasn't been opened. Have the Book-on-CD set, haven't taken one out.I think there's rebellion within me that refuses to read the "critically acclaimed" book that EVERYbody says I SHOULD read....lol.......p.s. did I mention that two different individuals gave me the book and CD's, determined that I should read the thing??
It doesn't surprise me that the Wise Co audience hasn't found time in their very busy schedules to read this one day book. Most half articulate folks find enough provocative material that this book becomes impossible to put down. But, again, that's only the rest of the world. Wise county (what a misnomer) is different. If your (a Wise county sic) interested, try Holy Blood Holy Grail for a precursor of the Da Vinci book.
Anon @ 7:38--to open, I'm not a Wise Countian, so lay off the stereotyping. Secondly, perhaps you're the one lacking the literary prowess, or discerning abilities, to pass up a dusty-worthy read.
Dallas Morning News reported this AM that there is a new product being marketed in line with the DaVinci "craze." DaVinci Code tarot cards.....geez......
Anon @ 7:38...to call this material provocative is a stretch. It's a decent book with interesting notions regarding DaVinci's life/the Holy Grail, etc. But, it's pretty much a Harrison Ford movie, with some big words thrown in for those who like to feel that they're accomplishing something by reading it. Oh, and lay off Wise Countians.
