    DA VINCI CODE

    Discussion started by EiZ - Oct 5, 2004

    anyone read the book THE DA VINCI CODE? its a crazy good book, very interesting, and i couldn't put it down... some very weird stuff to think about. Dan Brown the author wrote the book well and made u keep thinking what will happen and it has a very weird twist at the end. im starting to read another book by the same author called Angels and Demons. if u didnt read it...... read it!

    Yes...It was very good...Hard to put down as well. I've read Angels & Demons also, pretty much on the same story line. I didnt really like the ending of The Da Vinci Code but nonetheless it was Grade A...Has anyone done the online thingy?

    I liked Angels & Demons more, mainly cause the whole thing was so much more preposterous (don't worry, you'll notice when you get there). Both are great 2-afternoon reads, since they're so well-paced.

    They're already doing movie deals supposedly, which scares me cause this book doesn't translate well to film and can get shat on (as has happened to a lot of Michael Crichton novels).

    I know Ron Howard's doing Da Vinci code. I'd bet on Rachel Weisz being the female lead. And Maybe Russel Crowe as Rob Langdon...or someone similar.

    I think it will translate very well. I actually think these types of books are the easiest to put onto film.

    Haha, yeah Iquit. But I tend to enjoy books with ridiculous plots (which is why Clive Cussler is my favorite paperback author). Haven't yet read Deception Point or Digital Fortress.

    Cipher, I do believe Russell Crowe is being courted to play Langdon. I don't think it's a bad choice at all, but I imagined someone less "hunky". My choice would be Liam Neeson. Rachel Weisz is dead-on though, that would be my choice as well.

    I feel the book has too much intricate attention to detail and startling suggestions, which the reader can sit back and ponder on before continuing to read, that a movie simply can't allow in 2 hours. The whole impact will be diminished by the rhythm (which is probably gonna be pumped-up with required "action" scenes... the book offers few and not all that great), not to mention that everyone and their mothers have heard what the surprises in the book are about. Without those surprises and the carefully outlined research, the book would be just another trail-of-clues novel. Likewise, the movie will be another trail-of-clues flick.
