The Da Vinci Code

Harvard Professor Robert Langton, visiting Paris, is called in when the curator of the Louvre is murdered. Alongside the body is a series of baffling ciphers. Langton and a gifted French cryptologist, Sophie Neveu, are amazed to find a trail that leads to the works of Da Vinci - and beyond.

Robert Langdon, Harvard Professor of symbology, receives an urgent late-night call while in Paris: the curator of the Louvre has been murdered. Alongside the body is a series of baffling ciphers. Langdon and a gifted French cryptologist, Sophie Neveu, are stunned to find a trail that leads to the works of Da Vinci - and further. The curator, part of a secret society named the Priory of Sion, may have sacrificed his life to keep secret the location of a vastly important religious relic hidden for centuries. It appears that the clandestine Vatican-sanctioned Catholic sect Opus Dei has now made its move. Unless Landon and Neveu can decipher the labyrinthine code and quickly assemble the pieces of the puzzle, the Priory's secret - and a stunning historical truth - will be lost forever.

Da Vinci Code

I've seen the movie but the book might be the better choice. So I'll read it and decide. Good buy since my daughter also has a copy and she's thrilled ...

Just read it, you know you want to

Ref to previous reviewer, okay so this might not be historically accurate in every sense but as a mystery novel its damn gripping! It's also pretty interesting to us laymen when it comes to ancient history. It's a novel not a textbook and I couldn't put it down. The rest of his books (Angels and Demon's etc) not nearly as good.

Long and boring

The Big Secret: Jesus may have had a child. Even if it were true, I doubt anyone would care. The protagonists: Langdon is pompous and windy. Can't stop lecturing history. And the Female has no role except to be gobsmacked by Langdon's big brain. The may as well have left in the beginning of the story. None of the characters are developed during this rather long book, and one ends up not caring whether they get to the end of the story or not. The Historical context: Woefully inaccurate, Brown may as well have set his story on Mars for all the fictitious 'historical facts'. The whole book is written with a vocabulary of about 100 words. Gets a bit tedious when you have to read the same words over and over again.

Magnificent

This is Dan Browns best selling novel. It follows the story of Robert Langdon who is Professor specialising in Symbols. Langdon is called into the Louvre to investigate the murder of the curator,Jacques Saunier. Langdon,together with the grand dauhgter of saunier, are led on a path that could see them unveiling centuries worth of secrets and mysteries. A must read.
