Review - The Da Vinci Code

It's been almost 6 years since I first read The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown.  Since than, I've seen the movie a number of times so reading this book away was very refreshing.  Don't get me wrong, I love the movie, but reading the book is so much better.

I had forgotten several items that are mentioned in the book, such as how the bank manager wants to protect the vault items and not steal them, Robert Langdon talking to his publisher about the manuscript that he just submitted.  I know that when books are adapted for movies, things are often left out simply because there is not enough time, etc.  That is why it's been fun reading this book again.  So many things that didn't make it into the movie, but were so important to the story.

This book also made me think about religion.  Religion is a touchy topic and not one that I'm in the mood to talk about.  Let me just say that I can see the possibilities that Dan Brown discusses in this book. 

Overall, this is a very good book and one that I will probably pick up and read again in the future.
