I loved them!!!!!!!!

I read The Da Vinci Code first. I read it in two days. It just fascinated me! I found it really interesting. I started with Angels and Demons immediately, and the first thing I thought was: "Both novels start the same way!", you know.

I've read the other two novels by Brown, Digital Fortress (his first novel, I think) and Deception Point, which were OK.

The Da Vinci Code was the best one! Now this type of novels are proliferating in bookstores!

Well, it looked pretty real to me :roll: As I was reading the book, I thought all the explantions given were realistic. Later on I realized it was just a novel. But I think it could be, why not?

It's a fictitious book. It should be under fiction section in the bookstores. And there's a documentary movie about this book that one English... (I forgot what he was) was going after all the clues that are given out in the book to see whether they're true or not. I recommend you to see it if you like to see nice scences of England and the places that are mentioned in the book. It'll make you feel like you've been to those places :wink: .

I agree with Dixie it's just a novel but I believe that it may be true that Jesus was married to Maria Magdalena.Dan Brown wrote the novel so vividly that its impossible not to believe it.I carried away much while reading the book. :)

As a Christian, i don't believe in it... i would always uphold what is stated in the Bible... Though, it may be written so vividly, it's still not the ground of the truth.. i've heard that there is this one book which they say is written with more precision.. i don't know why these people are writing these books(may it be true or not). but i'll never submit to them... it's my faith..

many religious people feel offened by that book. Personally I don't. I like it even though it says stuff like Jesus had a wife and he had a son. I mean it would be a bit ridiculous, wouldn't it? Dan Brown is just a professional writer and took care about all the details so well that some people believed it's all true. I think he based on some facts for sure but it only helped him to develop his own story and his own point of view of that matter. And that's how this great book came to life haha ;p

According to my father-in-law, those who get offended by that book are not educated people :D

Exactly! And maybe I'm not a Christian so I don't understand this, but I don't see the big deal of it if Jesus got married... :?

I've got all his novels (he's got 4). I loved them, but my favorite ones are the most popular ones: The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons. I still don't know how there can be so many people that get mad when they read those novels.

i've only read the da vinci code and, although the story is very interesting, i think it gets worse as it comes to the end. i liked it but sometimes it seems more like a film than a novel...i don't know if someone has understood what i want to say cuz i don't know how to explain it in my language, so less in english! :roll:

The Da Vinci Code, one of the best novels I've ever read, it kept me interested page after page :wink: :wink:

An author who can do that, I mean keep the readers interested has to be Excellent just like Dan Brown

i don't know if what he wrote was true or false...

but it seemed to me more realistic than the Bible version

i mean jesus was a man, wasn't he? he certainly had a wife and they made love and they knew it was something absolutely great!
why the church has to condamn it?

Certainly is a strong word. We have no proof of this or whatsoever, for crying out loud.
