Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Did Dan Brown do any of his own research? Any at all?:

Comments

Jackson

Carl, it looks like the second edition of The Da Vinci Hoax is going to have a goldmine of new material.

Ed Peters

I'm waiting for the judge, white wig in hand, to leap from the bench, point at Brown, and exclaim "Liar, liar, pants on fire!" Maybe Brown could follow that without his wife having to explain it to him.

El Perro Patron

There you go, keep milking it.

Keep tying to cash in on the success of others.

Cristina A. Montes

EPP: At least Carl and Sandra take care to attribute their sources properly, and at least Carl does not blame MRs. Olson for the stuff in "The Da Vinci Hoax" for which he is criticized.

Sandra Miesel

For the record, my husband contributed mostly snarls of disbelief as I read selected passages of TDVC to him: "A sensitive Parisian policeman??!"

Carl Olson

There you go, keep milking it. Keep tying to cash in on the success of others.

I'm at complete peace knowing that EPP is also busy criticizing those dozens of authors who have written pro-Code books and have made far, far money than I'll ever see. Right, EPP? You've been in touch with Dan Burnsten, editor of Secrets of the Code, which has sold some 500,000 copies, haven't you? Oh, and all those editors and magazine writers and journalists who have made money selling stories and articles about the Coded Craziness -- you've been in touch them as well? Naw, of course not. Just us Catholics. Not that I think you're biased or anything. People as openminded and all-knowing as yourself are never biased. Only Catholics are biased. Right? Yeah, that's what I thought. Not that I, as a Catholic, should even be allowed to think. Or write. Or express my opinion. What the heck was I thinking? Oops, there I go again...

Steve Meikle

I am no catholic, but it is a great pity Brown libelled the Roman church. My own christian faith was not shaken by his book as I have a fairly good knowlege of history and theology and I knew from the outset that as scholarship it was self indulgent slop.

It is a great shame that many people are having their faith shaken by such nonsense. It is an indictment on the poverty of teaching from the pulpit in all the churches

AS an entertainment DVC was a great read, as long as you do not take *anything* he says seriously, as I have learned not to do. I enjoyed the book enough to read his other stuff, but *only* for entertainment

Jackson

EPP, if Carl and Sandra were trying to cash in on the success of TDC, they would have written something in accord with that book's vacuity, for we know that unremitting vacuity is what brings in the big bucks today. Exhibit 1: Oprahism, today's de facto religion.

Cristina A. Montes

Jackson is right. They would have written things like "The TDVC Theme Party Book" or...I'd better stop, I'm giving people ideas.

Paul H

I'm at complete peace knowing that EPP is also busy criticizing those dozens of authors who have written pro-Code books and have made far, far money than I'll ever see.

And don't forget about those companies in Europe that are making money by offering "Da Vinci Code" tours.
