The Da Vinci code Discussed

DISCLAIMER: This post includes some spoilers regarding the book "The Da Vinci code." If you're planning to read it, don't read this. . . if you've already read it, this will make perfect sense. . . if you haven't read it, and don't plan to read, this post may just as well be written in Pig Latin Chinese.

Caroline says: Did you know the Holy Grail was at the Louvre?

Ryan says: Totally had no idea.

Ryan says: Hidden in plain view, from what I understand.

Caroline says: I so knew.

Ryan says: The Teabing = Guilty thing still leaves me scratching my head.

Caroline says: heh

Ryan says: If his freakin' servant was in on it, why the hell have his servant climb to the top of a freakin' barn to do his covert surveillance?

Caroline says: because a guy with polio can't, thus clearing him as a suspect

Caroline says: if he didn't get caught, anyway

Ryan says: Uh huh. So, you know, just curious here. . . why the hell didn't the servant say "Hey, boss, this whole climbing in the barn rafter thing. . . you aren't possibly getting ready to rat me out if things go badly, are you?"

Caroline says: lol

Caroline says: I had a feeling the "Remy's allergic to peanuts" info was going to come into play later in the book...unlike PHI.

Ryan says: Trust me, Brown's going to come out with another book that centers entirely around the concept of PHI.

Caroline says: I hope so.

i hope so too. i was very intrigued by that, and meant to look up more on PHI but didn't. i think i will right now.

there were a lot of holes in the plot. several gaping ones, really, as well as factual holes re: art history. but still - a good read, don't you think?

Oh, I really enjoyed the book, don't get me wrong. I actually think I liked Angels and Demons better, but it was still a great read. I just really got the feeling that Dan Brown had somebody else in mind as "The Teacher" but then he went and fingered Teabing. Oh well. If I knew all the answers about writing, I'd be a famous writer, I guess. Which I'm not. Yet.
