Poor adaptation
27 January 2009 | by See all my reviews

I read this novel less than a year ago and thought that the writing was on par with the DaVinci code by Dan Brown. I was very disappointed with the TV adaptation of this novel and felt that there was a lack of the menace that was portrayed in the book. I also felt that the kitschy score really was part of the problem. It didn't have the feel of a major conspiracy that the author of the novel had done a very good job of conveying. Raymond Khoury has to be disappointed with this film. Not to mention the waste of the talent in it.

Overall, the writing was stiff, the action was condensed and not well explained. The level of intrigue surrounding the Church's involvement really made it seem that the writers were afraid of offending anyone in the catholic church, or anyone who is catholic. Unfortunately the premise of what the book was about centers on a religious cover up much like the DaVinci code did.
