The Duh Vinci Code

So yeah, I finished The Da Vinci Code. I’m no longer excited about the movie. The book was pretty blah.

It wasn’t bad, exactly. But it kind of reminded me of a good B- movie; good for what it is, but nothing more. Now imagine said B- movie being the biggest blockbuster of the summer. Yet, it’s still a B- movie. A good one even, but still a B- movie.

In a way it reminded me of National Treasure, a movie that was all the rage a while back but which I also thought was kinda lame. It had an interesting basic story, but it got far too implausible. How much can happen in one night? A lot, apparently.

I can vaguely understand the claim that this book is offensive to Christians, particularly Catholics, but it’s so ridiculously over the top that I doubt anyone can take it seriously. Sure it makes you wonder about what the church might be hiding, but only in a goofy sort of way, like Marvin Martian makes you wonder about life on other planets.

Anyway, if you have any interest in the book, I recommend reading it. You may love it (obviously, lots of people do). But color me unimpressed.
