Yesterday, someone asked me about The Da Vinci Code, the book by Dan Brown. I give them my review, and since it was current in my life, I will share it with you.
The book: a couple hundred pages a page turner fiction, followed by 60 pages of boring, preachy, revisionist pseudo-history, ending with another hundred pages of pretty good fiction.
The movie: rent National Treasure instead. Same plot, better movie.
