News concerning "The Da Vinci Code" and its author

Because it has been mentioned in several other posts on this community, I thought some of you would be interested in this article dealing with Dan Brown's "The Da Vinci Code" and the alleged sequel.

Interesting, though not surprising, that there is sequel in the works. The stir it has caused basically ensures its stamina to be milked for many, many years. But a movie? The dustjacket holding some sort of a code to Number Two? How much attention does this really deserve? I know at work (my uni's library, mind) there was always a copy of the book on hold, and we had three. It's insane how popular it is for such a meager work of literature. A good enough read, sure, but the writing is, well. Bad. How much can that account for? Apparently not much to the rest of the world.

I have to admit, however, that I devoured the book in less than twenty-four hours.

Baaah. < /sheep>
