Check out the reviews for the Bible on Amazon. Fuck, I was laughing my ass off for hours. Here's a sample: "First of all, this book is way too long. secondly, it is the preachiest thing i have ever read. it's like reading aesop's fables, but not as cool. pass this one by.

I love it! I could read those reviews all day.  
I expect Ross' review will be forthcoming.

Awesome. I think you're right, Creeko - this is going to consume hours of my time...

Those are fucking sweet! My favorite so far is the one mentioning the "Four Horsemen of Calypso." Hahahahahah!

My favorite part? When the cardinal says "The risk is that many people who read it believe that those fairy tales are real,'' Bertone said. ''I think I have the responsibility to clear things up to unmask the cheap lies contained in books like that.''  
How brutally ironic.

That's rich. If anything, I'd think he'd want people to read it and then do their own research as to its veracity. Of course, you start people down the path of reading about the Bible, you might get more skeptics than believers. So I guess the guy has a reason to be so insecure.  
Heather actually just bought a copy of the DaVinci code for us to read. I'm going to do it, but I'm not really looking that forward to it since I really despise the writing style. I just can't believe a book that's that popular can be all that great.

Shit Swerb, before I read the article I thought the Cardinal was refering to the Bible. Ironic indeed. I didn't mind the DaVinci Code although, I prefered Angels and Demons. I got no problems with the factual errors. It's fiction. Brown tries to pawn some of his shit off as fact in interviews and he's an asshole for it but it still makes for an interesting read.
