This book is another example of how our society delights in being bigoted in a veiled sort of way. Mr. Brown's lack of information about the Church is apalling and his research is superficial. His main character asserts that the Church has "alway" tried to denigrate the female in its history. Perhaps he would care to explain why the Catholic Church honors Mary to the extent that they do, and honor the acts of Mary Magdelene after she devotes herself to following Jesus in his ministry. There is enough creative fiction to be mildly interesting, but Brown's obvious hatred of the Roman Catholic Church is nauseating at times and laughable at others. I wish I had used my book credit elsewhere.
I am looking forward to next in the series. I hope that having the first book in the series will lead to the other two in the line being made available as well. Great reader!
