I read it but that was when it first came out so I have fprgotten much of it. I liked it. I knew it was fiction.
But it's author claims that its factual underpinnings are true! How very confusing. I guess it takes a really smart person to see that when the author says some thing is "true," he really means that it is fiction! Wow!
See, what I was against was the story. I thought by virtue of the fact that Dan Brown said there was some dude named Thomas Langdon and some chick named Sophie <<whippersnapper, insert real name>> that he misled people into believing they really exist so that people would go and try to find them and have a date or something. I really objected to the description of the naked dead guy in the Louvre. I thought for sure that people would try to go find the naked dead guy.
