[note: I appologize for making another post about this, but it seems it would kinda beat off topic from the previous posts i've seen on Da Vinchi
and would be lost among all the other posts]
I just finished reading the book and I didnt get the ending. Was the grave bellow the Chalices? Or was that a medaphorical meaning?
Also Dan Brown was at a public speaking, theres more here:
It seems to me that alot of the stuff in his book he wrote knowing he had some background and credit to it's truth. The underlying meaning of the
books is nice. It seems he already knew the church would discredit it before he worte it. So it's obvious why he made it apart of the books story.
There is no doubt in my mind this book is a novel. But who says you can't write a fictional story with a non-fictional base. That obvious to why
people have devouted time to write books to discredit him.
It's funny to see some of the things in this book seem fictional but could be a metaphore to our everyday life.
Back to Brown, he said that there is also a code hidden in the cover of the book to the sequel he is curretnly working on.
If you look on the front of the cover I beleive the text is backwords, just like one of the codes in the book. Did Brown make that up or is that
actually a Da Vinchi thing?
It will be interesting to see the movie when it comes out. Hopefully it doesn't beat off track and sticks to the book.
I read in another post, there working on the cast. Either Russel Crowe or Tom Hanks could be Mr. Langdon. Honestly I dont think Crowe would be good
for the part, he has that heroic stigma to him that seems to bold for langdons description.
Tom hanks seems more like a person that can fit the description of all his carachters though. What do you think?
