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. ;~)

Ha ha, I never read the Da Vinci Code. But the Harrison Ford comparisons remind me of when I was reading Bridget Jones 2 and the character they meet in Thailand (who plants drugs in their bag) was described as looking 'like Harrison Ford.' Ha ha, but when I eventually saw the movie (it sucked) I was like "Shit! That fucker doesn't looke a THING like Harrison!" Ha ha...oh, well.
