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 ...
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.
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.
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.
