The penman of the novel, The DaVinci Code, which sold multi-million copies over 3 years, has given his defence against charges of using other authors’ material.
The book employs mythology, semiotics and medieval history and has been a favourite read for many. The novel is set to be made into a film featuring the likes of Tom Hanks. Brown, the Author, is said to be surprised by the sucess.
Brown stated on his website “I never imagined so many people would be enjoying it this much. I wrote this book essentially as a group of fictional characters exploring ideas that I found personally intriguing.”
