The Dan Brown code

The phenomenon that is The Da Vinci Code has spawned a seemingly unstoppable deluge of analysis into the both its story and the merit of the 'facts' it is based on.

It is always refreshing to see someone walking in the opposite direction to the crowd and this article on the Language Log called The Dan Brown code is no exception.

Geoffrey K. Pullum vents his rage that although Dan Brown is now a best seller in almost every country in the world and has even now had a film made of his latest book his prose are, in Pullum's view, bunk.
