Ok, curiosity get the better of me once again-

What is the Da Vinci Code?

I have heard plenty of referances to it but I never took the time out to investigate it.

I actually haven't read it but I am trying to get it. I read his other book 'Angels and Demons' it is all about the Illuminati. It is really interesting and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys Lara Croft type things (if you remember the Illuminati appeared in the first film).

Did you have a look on the site I linked in?? http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

no, not yet.

I just looked it up on answers.com. I'll follow the links though, give me a minuit.

Burning Light. Who does that number belong to?

17-08-05, 23:50
that's the number you have to ring in new york for the clue. as i think it would be a waste of peoples money (espc. trying to phone from UK!)
the telephone no was for anyone who wanted it so they could find out the answer. i found out the answer and posted the link to the site the phonecall refers to tlr. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif don't worry i would never give out someone elses phone details ;)

Took me a while to figure the last one out. But I loved every minute of it.

I'm doing my master's thesis on Brown's books, especially The Da Vinci Code. I remember that when I read the cover of the book (not knowing yet what it was about) that it reminded me very much of AOD - I guess this was the same for most of you? Oh and MissNATLA, thanks for mentioning the fact that the Illuminati were in the first film, I forgot that and that's another link from Brown to TR http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif That will give me another reason for an academically justified TR screenshot in my thesis http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

19-08-05, 15:48
what? are you serious about the thesis thing? Thats great!! So you know all about the illuminati?

19-08-05, 16:03
No, I'm sorry http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif My thesis is about the books as literary phenomena - why they are successful, what is new about them or what isn't, what messages does Brown want to get across and things like that. I'm planning on writing a small bit on the reality behind the novels, but as this is hard to track down I don't want to go too deeply into that. But I am going to mention TR as one of the (possible) sources for Brown's novels! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif
