The Da Vinci, sorry, Leonardo Code
Just finished a draft of a 30+ page thesis about Dan Brown, mainly based on 'The Da Vinci Code'. Oh, can the guy write! (no). But you have to give it to him, he can SELL. He found a way with pseudo-intelligent words and puzzles, and 'oh-so-curious-but-not-so-true' facts to attract readers, and found the mass market's area of reading interest. 80+ million sales can't be wrong.
