My wife finished both Angels and Demons and The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown during the holy week. And her conclusion: "It's fiction." Why am I not surprised? I was planning to read both novels myself but couldn't bring myself to open either book: the thought of reading Dan Brown was just too unpleasant. Anyway, I think it's just a fad that soon will pass. Besides, there are just too many resources on the net regarding this topic and I don't see the need for adding my two cents worth. Here's a link that contains a number of links for cracking the Da Vinci Code. Those who are interested can click here.
