Tammy I still need to read this one!


message 2: by Beth F. (new)

Beth F. 100% agreed, Angels & Demons was the superior story...it's too bad it wound up playing second fiddle to The DaVinci Code.


message 3: by Kandice (new)

Kandice I agree! It was much better, and I never understood why they chose to make Davinci Code a movie first. They certainly weren't worrying about offending people! Let's see the Pope vs. Jesus Christ. I know that sounds harsh, but I never understood the brouhaha! It's a novel! (fiction)

Jennifer I heard that alot at the book store when I worked there too. I would hear customers all the time saying "Oh if you liked The DaVinci Code you have to read Angels & Demons! You will love it!" So finally I had to see for myself. Yup. Angels & Demons was a notch up on the good book scale from DaVinci Code.

I know what you mean Kandice. Sometimes I feel like people need to let a book just be - I mean it's FICTION for pete's sake. It's not like the guy was saying "Oh no - This really happened." I know their was an uproar about the killer albino priest guy too. Of course I don't get banning books either. If you don't want to read a book - then don't read it. But don't tell me that I shouldn't read it because it was offensive to you. Ya know? I just get kinda pissed off when people I have never met try and tell me what I can and can't do.

OK. Stepping off my podium now. ;)

Kathy I'll jump on the bandwagon, too. Angels and Demons was much better.

Jennifer It's going to be in theaters later this year! I read it at work today. I forget which month it comes out - I will have to IMDB it to see who is starring this time. Yay!


message 7: by Tammy (new)

Tammy Isn't IMDB one of the best sites? When I'm goofing off instead of being responsible, I like to look up movie quotes and useless little facts.

J, always feel free to step up on your podium. I couldn't agree more. Being a former preacher's kid, I wasn't surprised when a big deal was made over the DaVinci Code. It was a popular sermon topic in a majority of churches - just like the Harry Potter series. (I think the original rumors of witchcraft and evilness in Harry Potter started on The Onion as a joke.) I swear most people will look for reasons to be negative, even if it defies logic! Fiction people - it is only fiction. Lighten up!

Jennifer Thanks for the words of encouragement Tammy. :) I kind of rant sometimes fo it's nice to know I am not loosing my friends like crazy when I go on a rant.

IMDB rocks. It's just awesome - I don't know what we did before we had it!


Julie (jjmachshev) Oh hell no, Jennifer. Rants are great!! and much more entertaining...
;P

Julie (jjmachshev) Oh...and put me on the list of those who liked A&D better than the 'Code'.


message 14: by Pat (new)

Pat A&D was so much better than TDC. In fact that was why I read TDC. I enjoyed the story about the Illuminati. The gore was a bit much but the action was intense. TDC was such a letdown although it had its potential. The TDC wrap up was too neat and the last chapter crawled.
