The Da Vinci Code

I went to see The Da Vinci Code today with my daughter. We both read the book, so we were anxious to see how it translated to the big screen. Ron Howard did an excellent job with the movie. I had seen a program on television where Dan Brown also was happy with the movie and that is no small complement from an author whose book has been made into a movie. Both my daughter and I felt the film followed the book very closely. Of course another reason I wanted to see the movie was that I am obsessed with all things French, especially Paris. Someday I hope to travel there and lose myself inside the Louvre for days. {Isn't that the dream of every artist?} Anyway, if you haven't read The Da Vinci Code, you should read it before going to see the movie. It is a very easy read, with short chapters that you can squeeze into small spaces of time, so reading it goes very quickly.
