No other book has scared me quite so much and I am not talking in a "horror-close-close-my-eyes-at-each-scene" kind of a scared.
I am talking about a - Brown writes exceptionally well and he's bound to convince a good number of people that this story and the beliefs behind it are all true - kind of afraid.
I loved and hated this book more than any other book I've read so far in my life (well, we aren't counting the Bible...)
He weaves a tale of conspiracy and cult and murder and lies and subtle truth that scares me silly. I know it's a novel. I am intelligent enough to figure that out even without his disclaimer at the beginning of the book.
But there is just enough truth amidst all the "mythology" that could make for a very believable true story.
Of course, watching the movie, I completely realized just how absurd the whole thing was... ;-)
