Setting aside the Religion vs. Science theme, how can I believe Brown's other "facts" when he doesn't know the difference between the Prayer of St. Francis ("Make me a channel of Your peace..." and the Serenity Prayer ("God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change...") or that the Devil's Advocate has nothing to do with electing a pope and everything to do with canonizing a saint? I really liked the camerlengo, up to the point where he was revealed to be a stark raving loony. Speaking of which, that was one weird-ass climax. Love Robert, but why does Brown keep referring to him by his last name? Is Brown so impressed with his own creation that he doesn't feel they're on a first-name basis yet? Vittoria was great, but everyone at the Vatican going on and on about her shorts got old fast. Yes, I know they're inappropriate, but either give her a pair of pants or get over it. Nitpicks aside, it was a good thriller. Can't wait to see the movie.

Speaking of movies, The DaVinci Code wasn't as bad as the critics thought. Blasphemy aside, it was a good story. Though, how could DaVinci and Newton be in both the Priory of Sion and the Illuminati? I think Brown just picked a few famous names and keeps reusing them. $5 says they'll turn up in The Lost Symbol too. Love Tom Hanks, I could listen to him talk all day. Audrey Tatou was good too. I really want the soundtrack.

Could've bought The Lost Symbol at Baker's but $17 is a bit much for a book, even a hardcover. Maybe I'll try Half-Price Books in a few months.

I want an icon that says "Dan Brown is my hero -- if he can get published, anyone can."
