BOOKS: Note to Dan Brown fans: If you've read The Da Vinci Code and are dying to tell somebody how great it is, please read Foucault's Pendulum first. If you still think Da Vinci Code is a great book, please do tell your friends. But please, experience Foucault's Pendulum first. When I read The Da Vinci Code I had no idea it was some sort of phenomenon and am now flabergasted by the fact that it's on every best seller list. I heard 2 different people talking about it in Borders the other day as if it were the greatest thing ever. If you haven't read it, do as Chuck D commands and Don't believe the hype. Read Foucault's Pendulum instead, you'll be glad you did.
