    nov·el - A fictional prose narrative of considerable length, typically having a plot that is unfolded by the actions, speech, and thoughts of the characters.

    Idiots. All of them. There's some annoying albino chick that got on the local tv station this morning saying that the evil albino in the story is not a true dipiction of all albinos. Well not shit. Morans. I hope this movie makes a shit load of money just to piss all these people off.

    haha it rules because while reading The da Vinci Code last night I was staring at my recently purchased copy of Foucault's Pendulum thinking "I should be reading that instead."

    The story is okay, but the characters are really lifeless so far. Either way it's a quick read that I'm enjoying on some level, I guess.

    I've read all of Brown's stuff. He doesn't do a very good job developing characters. He tends to concentrate more on the puzzle part of the story. Which is fine. It kept me interested. Angels and Demons is better a story BTW.

    The christian religion, particularily the Roman Catholics did one hell of a job promoting this movie as well as the book.

    Ian McKellan said something like he thought the Bible should have a disclaimer on it saying it's fiction, not the da Vinci code, and that the DVC was a jolly good story, or something.

    that, on top of what Frostgiant said about hoping the movie succeeds to piss people off, makes me wonder if there will be another example of widespread support of shitty art due to fortuitous political alignment (see: Dixie Chicks for another example).

    I bought Foucault's Pendulum for my mother a few years ago after hearing her rave about the DVC, but I don't think she has yet begun the book. unfortunate!

    yeah it's awesome! i like how it has genuine twist-after-twist stuff, not cheap, easily-forseeable "oh well I'm sure that someone is going to step out from behind the crates and change everything at any moment...aaaand...there he is!" like in Heist.

    and toby did you finish stranger in a strange land or even start it?
