Dan Brown is a great author, although I must say that some of his books are somewhat repetitive. In The Da-Vinci Code and Angels & Demons, things go so similarily and it ends with a sudden and crucial twist then Robert Langdon either has sex or goes on date.

I guess it's time that I read the book, or maybe I'll be a cheat and watch the movie... For the hell of it.

I don't see why people are taking it so seriously though.

people are taking it so seriously because the second or third page of the book states that ALL of the information in the book was carefully research and are all FACTS. however, thousands of people are proving that half the book is indeed wrong/fake and not facts like brown said it was

It is fiction. The truth is streached very very far. Some of it fact, some of it folklore.

Leonardo Da Vinci was very paranoid about his work so he did weird things, leave messages in things, etc. I remembered in school that he learned how to write backwards, and that was one of his secret languages, so I tried putting the cover to a mirror and this is what I got. Lemme kno if anyone else noticed this..

" Praised, will reveal the truth to thee and helps to keep her seatter's family whole."

I am unsure if I got that last part right, but fill free to give your comments about this.
Actually I was looking at the book and it says ...


" Praised, will reveal the truth to thee and helps us keep her scattered family whole "

nope; they are referring to mary magdalene and how she and jesus had a family; and a child. The 'us' is probably priory of sion but 'her scattered family whole' is referring to jesus' supposed family

Really? Whoa.
