The Da Vinci Economy (a rant)

The Da Vinci Code is now an economy! Here are your many choices! You can choose the original novel by Dan Brown, the special illustrated version, or the illustrated screenplay.

I, like many, don't get all the hype about this movie. It must be some
"Harry Potter" for adults thing. We listened to the abridged version on a trip to the San Juan Islands two summers ago, but I didn't think it was SPECTACULAR.

However, have you noticed all the OTHER books in the Da Vinci world lately? Let me fill you in!

For the most part you have about a dozen of books questioning Brown's novel!
(***novel: a work of fiction) There is Breaking the Da Vinci Code by Darrell L. Bock, The Truth Behind the Da Vinci Code: A Challenge Response to the Bestselling Novel by Richard Abanes, The Da Vinci Hoax by Carl Olson and Sandra Miesel, Secrets of the Code: The Unauthorized Guide to the Mysteries Behind the Da Vinci Code by Dan Burstein, or The Da Vinci Code: Fact or Fiction? by Hank Hanegraff and Paul Maier. Fwew!

If you want to start a discussion group about it you can use Discussing the Da Vinci Code: Examining the Issues Raised by the Book and Movie by Lee Strobel and Garry Poole.

Ok, if that was not enough please read on!

There is the diet! YES, A DIET!
The Diet Code: Revolutionary Weight Loss Secrets from Da Vinci and the Golden Ratio by Stephen Lanzalotta.

Da Vinci was a smart, smart man!

My favorite has to be Da Vinci style travel!

Fodor's Guide to the Da Vinci Code includes "A travel section featuring unique suggestions on where to go, stay, and eat for Da Vinci Code disciples who want to take the ultimate self-guided tour."

CRAZY!! For more on traveling to unlock already unlocked mysteries go here!

I think I'll just watch the movie...just to see if
Tom Hanks can make a comeback after his flop The Ladykillers.
