My sister gave me The Da Vinci Code a while back. I’d say it was before the hype really got hold and as such I simply enjoyed the book, immensely. The book is not ground-breaking by any means, but it’s a great action-adventure and there are some good plot twists to rattle your brain.
Now the trailer for the upcoming movie-version by Ron Howard is here. The film stars the likes of Tom Hanks, Audrey Tatou, and Paul Bettany. While I’ve never been a fan of neither Tom Hanks or Ron Howard, the film looks pretty true to the book (which already seemed like a film script anyway).
Yet, the book discusses some fairly sensitive aspects of the christian church and the foundation of Christianity; if the film will truly be true to the book, it’s a fair bet it’ll generate some outrage in much the opposite way the Passion of the Christ did.
What are your thoughts? Have you read the book?
