As much as Da Vinci may have been a genius, the Da Vinci Code is a piece of poo. I've been looking for a way to express exactly how I feel about it for some time, but have never been able to fully communicate what I think given the limitations of language. Many thanks to J.L. for making me aware that someone else has already done so.
Peter Millar's review of _The Da Vinci Code_ in The Times:
This is without doubt, the silliest, most inaccurate, ill-informed, stereotype-driven, cloth-eared, cardboard-cutout-populated piece of pulp fiction that I have read. And that's saying something.
