Just finished Dan Brown's Angels and Demons. The Washington Post, in a rare lapse of decorum, not to mention English, calls it "Unputdownable." Please. The book, much like it's follow-up, The Davinci Code, dishes out improbabilities with shameless haste. "Unputdownable?" Maybe, but the book is a traffic accident. If you can't put it down, it's only because you are a rubbernecker.
Question for future posts: Did Pope Pius IX, in 1857, really casterate every statue of a nude male within Vatican City, as Brown claims? Pius was a bad man, a bad pope and a bad Catholic, but was he also a prude?
To the books!
