Davinci Code Fans


By HopeForOurFuture - Posted on 21 April 2009

For anyone who loved the Davinci Code, the next book is finally coming out in September.

It's been 6 years(I can't wait to read this one)

The Lost Symbol

Also on his webstie there is a link called secrets, it has true but bizarre facts from all of his books. Pretty interesting. 

Love Brown, Howard, and Hanks.

Looking forward to watching this.

Although, to be honest, the quirky accent Howard has Hanks using in this series is a bit unsettling at times.

Or freaky, depending on your point of view.

Hope did you know that Angels and Demons the movie...is coming out soon?

Looks Good!!

Yes, I saw the previews. I read Davinci and Angels. I have his other 2 books, but have not read them yet. I can't wait to read this one, though. I read Davinci in 4 days.

 

The other 2 books are good reads too.  Pick em up at the local library.  Don't know if they would be 'keepers' or not.

Actually, I read this one before I ever read the DaVinci code.

I can't remember why now, though? Hmm...

In fact, for some weird reason, in my mind I thought this one came first, timeline wise.

Mabye it's just because I read them out of sequence though.

Oh well! Still can't wait to see it!

By the way, Lizbethie, movies are my and my husband's secret vice. We used to buy cinema tickets in bulk at the beginning of the year. It was not unusual for us to see 2 new movies a week years ago.

Timewise, we just can't do that anymore ::sigh::

 

Here's an neat link to stick into your favorites if you like movies and want to stay up-to-date on what's coming out, trailers, etc:

Already ordered it......

 

 I will not throw the first punch but I wil certainly throw the last.....President Barack Obama.

I just ordered it to. Other good books to check out, Check out the author Thomas Greanias. I've read his fisrt two books, two more are due out this summer. They were good and I can't wait for the others. 

OK, This needs saying...  Dan Brown's books are certainly page-turners and make for a great read.  But let's keep in mind that he mixes history with fiction in ways that the uninformed cannot easily distinguish, and that's disingenous at best.  The DaVinci Code series is fiction.   Fiction only!  The historical basis is not anywhere near as solid as some would want to believe.

I was in college in the 60's and remember finding the works of Ayn Rand to be great reading (you know... Atlas Shrugged, The Fountainhead, The Anthem, etc.)  But even then I was able to see the fallacies in her assumptions and was able to enjoy without being converted.  Much like my enjoyment of Tom Clancy's works while not seeing them as representative of reality.

As to Dan Brown... I would sincerely hope that people read the books and see the movies with the same jaundiced eye that they do when reading romance fiction or murder mysteries.

I'm confused, did someone say they were not fiction? I know they are fiction, but there are some real cool facts in it-Symbolism, fibonacci numbers, phi, etc.  With that said, the book says it is fiction, so I don't know why any one would think otherwise and why you are making that point. Can you enlighten me? 

I had the same thought as well.  Maybe has to do with the umpteen Da Vinci code specials that came on History channel, or Discovery that made it seem like a real possibility. 

What has always amazed me is that we seem to know so much more about almost any period in history except the timeframe of Jesus' life.  Wonder what is or isn't buried out there.

I wonder that too. Sometimes I wish I had become an archeologist, that would be a fun career. I have no problem if Jesus was married. I mean would that make him any less a master/son of god?(whoever you perceive him to be, don't want to leave anyone out). But that is me, always curious, I don't just take what they as they it was or is. I am always searching for it all to make sense.
