The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown

The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown: Well, now I know why so many people hated the movie. The book’s ending is much more satisfying (and sensical). In case you missed all the hubbub, this is about a search for the Holy Grail, which is not a cup, but rather a dark secret of the Christian church. The evidence supporting this claim was largely suspect: the history was mostly inaccurate, and the symbology and mathematics was usually either misinterpreted or arbitrarily designated. Still, it was a fun ride and inspired me to look up several of the paintings and buildings described in the story. (Anything that makes me think or learn wins bonus points.) While I don’t think it lived up to the hype – I was prepared for it to be far more blasphemous and insulting – it made for a good bit of light fiction.
