The book was certainly over-rated.
There was no character development, the dialogues were utter crap and there was no hinting towards other possibilties of an outcome.
And besides all this *SPOILER AHEAD*
The epilogue destroys everything the writer builds up.
The main factor of the story being that it's only interesting because you don't know...
And then in the epilogue...he tells you.
It was pathetic.
As for the grail being the blood line of Jesus. Well, it could be true.
I advice EVERYBODY to read "Foucault's Pendulum" by Umberto Eco.
It has one of the best endings ever written and it's roughly on the same subject.
