The Da Vinci Code

The Da Vinci Code  - Dan Brown Sometimes, you just want to have FUN! This book served this purpose for me. I had a blast with this book! Yes, it's complete tripe. Yes, it's formulaic. Yes, it's stupid beyond belief. But, it is a really fun book! It was so much fun that I really can't remember one thing about this book, other than it was about Jesus and Mary Magdelene and somehow or other, Leonardo and Mona Lisa are involved, but I do recall the breathless pleasure I had reading it. It's like religious porn. I kept turning the pages because it made me feel like a bad girl, heh heh heh. *This* is why I give it the rating of "amazing." If I had to vote, purely on the worth of the book, I'd have to give it one star, as it really is complete tripe.
