Da Vinci Code Is Only Fiction ... Calm Down?
Amy Wellborn posts a telling interview with Dan Brown from a couple of years ago ... here's an excerpt:
WERTHEIMER: You're trying not to get too fictional with the facts here?
Mr. BROWN: Absolutely. The only thing fictional in "The Da Vinci Code" is the characters and the action that takes place. All of the locations, the paintings, the ancient history, the secret documents, the rituals, all of this is factual.
WERTHEIMER: So is this going to encourage us all to get out there and re-examine da Vinci?
Mr. BROWN: I hope so...
So if you've been saying that this is only fiction and everybody should just drink decaf, WAKE UP! Dan Brown did not intend this to be entirely fiction, and as we know from anecdotal evidence such as this many people are taking this as an actual source of factual information.
Facts, Truth, Knowledge - it's a refreshing change of pace from the emotional, wishy-washy goo being proffered by the DVC crowd, and it is well worth the effort.
