The Da Vinci Code is everywhere. It has spawned numerous documentaries and hopeful imitators. Barry (English and foreign languages, Barry University) and some friends were chatting at a conference about why in the world this book has had such an impact. As a cultural phenomenon, they concluded, it deserved to be studied. The result is this group of essays. They do not address the factual truth of the book or its literary merit. Instead they search for what themes made it resonate with so many people. The quality of the essays is uneven, the most interesting dealing with The Da Vinci Code within the genre of detective novels and as a continuation of the tradition of Grail Quest sagas. A balanced comment on the reaction of Christians to the book is thought-provoking. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
