Indiana Jones and the Da Vinci Code?

Ok, I know I'm WAY behind the times, but I'm finally reading (currently halfway through, so no spoilers please!) the DaVinci Code. (and, no, I haven't seen the film yet) Have any of you read it? I'm reading a lovely illustrated edition borrowed from my Uncle. It has photos of all the relevent art works etc, which is a huge boon cos I don't have to get up every five minutes and google it to know what they're talking about! :~)

Anyway, I had heard via Harrison Ford when he was doing interviews for 'Firewall' that the main character was supposed to look like him, and yes he is mentioned by name. Also, the character's voice was described like Harrison's - 'smooth chocolate' *yes I'm drooling* - and several times there have been references to his 'lopsided grin'!

And the more I get into the story, the more it reads like an Indiana Jones fanfic! Seriously! The character of Langdon is dead-set Dr (Indiana) Jones! (minus the hat ;~P)

Anyone else feel that?


I'm thoroughly enjoying it by the way. ;~)

I read it way back in 2003 and had fun with it, although as a bookseller I am horribly sick of it now. I had forgotten the specific HF references but not the overall Indy vibe. I can imagine you found it very interesting with your art background.

My main complaint was that Langdon is a bit of a Gary Stu and rather boring. I was hoping the casting would give the movie version more depth.
