    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    Informative and balanced book

    I have read this book with great interest and enjoyment. It certainly does not make any digs at Dan Brown, it simply states the facts. If the facts contradict what Dan Brown has written, that is the fault of Dan Brown. Dan Brown may have written a pretty good thriller but he has the historical and theological knowledge of a turnip. Whereas this book by Michael Haag and Veronica Haag is genuinely knowledgable -- and it is also a damn good read.



    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    Getting it right

    The people who criticise this book miss the point. It does not argue about whether or not Dan Brown is right. Instead it recognises that The Da Vinci Code raises interesting questions which cannot be answered without some background knowledge of history, and so it provides that history, plus lots of other references -- books, online links, etc -- for readers to take their questions and curiosity further. There is nothing biased about that. Rather it is called healthy inquiry. The people who knock the Rough Guide to The Da Vinci Code are themselves biased, also uptight, and worst of all they are fools.



    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    Bibliography? Jeeezus, give us a break.

    Michael Haag and Veronica Haag provide an extensive reading list in their Rough Guide to The Da Vinci Code, not to mention references to numerous websites. It is reasonable to assume that these lists form the significant core of their bibliography. Would it make the recent reviewer from Cambridge a happier little bunny if these lists fell under the headline title 'Bibliography'? That seems rather pedantic. Everything about this book feels right, just the way it is -- the balance between expert knowledge on the one hand and readability on the other makes this an intelligently enjoyable book to read. Bravo Haags, bravo Rough Guides. What we want now is a new edition to take account of the forthcoming film.
