Haha, definitely. I myself like to trawl banned lists to find books to read sometimes.
On the topic though; I didn't find Da Vinci code to be a very, I don't really know what word to use so let's go with, convincing story. A lot of the logic jumps that solved the "ancient riddles" were either absurdly simple or just nonsensical, and a lot of the information is patently false, so that grated on me the whole book!

At the time I was surprised at the number of people that were viewing it as historical fact or feeling that Dan Brown was offering it as historical fact. It was even discussed in my Pastor's message at the church I was attending at the time. I wanted to shout "Doesn't anyone know what fiction means?" They weren't looking at it as fiction, so others wouldn't be able to. Maybe that inability, in itself, is why so many found it controversial and rocketed it to a bestseller list.
