I really enjoyed it. Taking it for what it is, leaving any feelings about religion or whatever else out of it, it was a wholly enjoyable, fast paced caper novel. Just enough history + conspiracy to keep it interesting (and spawn a whole cottage industry of freakin da vinci code analysts - it's a book people, Dan Brown is sitting at the bank laughing his a$$ off at all the hype). His writing style paces it well and I always said it reads like a movie. Not like it's a script, but just the movement and transitions just seem fit for the screen.
So remember, it's not meant to be a religious text, a history text, or anything like that. It's a fiction novel by a guy who writes things that are just believable enough, like Clancy and all the rest. Fiction is supposed to be read for fun.
The more computer-centric Digital Fortress is also quite enjoyable...even a programmer can read it without tripping on the tech being too inaccurate.
And now that this has gone on for several minutes, I prepare to be told I am invalid proof of humanity
people should read the bible(s) that objectively
I read it, and it was horrible. The author wants to be Ludlum so bad, though he fails miserably. The plot is very linear and boring.
People should read Richard North Patterson instead. Oh and Ludlum of course :)
I liked it. It provided a number of interesting insights into the early church. Even if 10% of the facts were true it makes for a fun read.
I liked it as well - not as deep as Ludlum but still a nice easy read.
