But what about the DiCaprio code

I don't read much fiction; I'd generously estimate that novels make up 10% of my leisure reading. But on my dad's recommendation I recently picked up Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code (Random House, $24.95), the ubiquitous bestselling gnostic suspense potboiler. And I enjoyed it. I find the history of early Christianity fascinating, and the book has a lot of that. It's the sort of novel you wish had a bibliography. There also is double-crossing and international intrigue and a crazed albino monk.
