Ice cream - I like that. And agree with you completely.

Steve Clackson

I haven't read it yet but I am impressed that you stated that you like it for what it is. I think far to many reviewers took it upon themselves to trash it for its writing or subject matter rather than just reading a good page turner.


I saw the DA VINCI CODE movie a week ago and loved it. I haven't read the book yet but intend to.

It's fiction. Just good fiction. I heard on a TV morning show that some of the worry comes from what kids make of the story plot. They're impressionable. And I also know the object of fiction is to make it appear as real in the minds of the reader. What is that term? Suspend disbelief?

The talk of the book and the movie certainly has made things interesting.
