Making Grown Men Cry Since 1992
I think I might be the last person on earth to finally have read The Da Vinci Code . Just finished it up a couple days ago. I didn’t want to see the movie before I read the book, but now that I’ve read the book … I don’t really want to see the movie. Dan Brown’s novel is to literature what a bag of Cheetos is to grilled halibut. I’ll eat Cheetos every once in a while, I’ll even enjoy them, but, man, they sure will make you queasy if you try to tear through the whole bag.The quasi-scholarly premise and expository style are appallingly absurd. The book is riddled with ridiculous errors and overstatements. And to call the characters cardboard would be charitable. The whole shebang comes off like a glorified version of a “Scooby Doo” episode. Still, it’s a quick, fun, (sometimes unintentionally) entertaining read. I’d highly recommend it—if y’all hadn’t already read it … several years ago … in hardcover.
