Books: The Da Vinci Code
Sunday, 2004 September 26 - 11:44 am
By now, just about everyone has read, or at least heard about, this book, but I'll review it anyway.

First of all, everyone seems to agree that it's fun to read. It's full of fast-paced action, with interesting characters and twisting (but easy-to-follow) plot lines.

The controversy with this book is its underlying theory about modern Christianity. The story is based on previously-published theories that Christianity is largely based on an interpretation and filter made hundreds of years after Christ's death to benefit those who were in power at the time. For someone like me, who delights in anything that challenges conventional wisdom, this was just an added bonus. For faithful Christians, I can see how this seems like a bunch of nonsense.

But controversy aside, it's still a good book. Not a literary masterpiece, perhaps, but still thoroughly enjoyable.

Rating: 3.5 / 5
