I downloaded a documentary about it not long ago. The authors of The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail
talked about their book and The Da Vinci Code
, and other authors as well. They didn't seem very happy with Brown's novel. I remember one of them talking about the postures of Christ and Mary Magdalene in Da Vinci's "The Last Supper" and saying something like "...which we first pointed out, not Mr. Brown".
I don't see what the fuss is all about anyway. I'm going to get The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail
so I can figure out. I never thought both books could be compared. The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail
is the result of an exhaustive research, whereas Brown's just a fictional novel based on that info.
I guess they also want their share of the cake
