The Da Vinci Code
Best Book I've Read In Years


I kept putting off reading this book, even though I had heard all the hype. Finally, my husband read it and loved it, so I decided I'd give it a try. Wow. I picked it up and didn't put it down until 5 hours later. I didn't want to go to work the next day because I wanted to finish reading!! I won't go over the plot line again - that has already been done. This was just so well written - fresh material, fast moving plot, the various threads all get tied up in the end, but not in a pat, disappointing way, but in a way that still satisfies the reader. I can't wait to read "Deception Point" and "Angels & Demons"!

Sure, it's a page turner....


The book will insult even average intelligence. It is infantile and inaccurate. Dan Brown ?" the Master of the Obvious!

The Da Vinci Code
Terrible style and characterization


The DaVinci Code is a terribly written book. Halfway through, I started turning down the corners of pages with egregious errors of style or usage; I probably turned down a dozen pages, and if I'd been wiser, I would have turned down the entire book in the first place. The characters have the depth of puddles. The plot unfolds in real time, which is for the best, since I strongly doubt the author could have handled anything more complex.The protagonists break the DaVinci code by figuring out a series of puzzles. Several of the puzzles are unbelievable, and one is painfully obvious. ("It's like no language I've ever seen before!")What is of interest in the DaVinci Code is not due to the author. He draws on a changing view of Mary Magdelene, as not a prostitute but someone equal to the other apostles, and perhaps even the wife of Christ. He imagines that some of the hidden symbolism that does in fact exist in Leonardo's Last Supper and in his other works refers to Magdelene's true identity. The historical material is fascinating, reminding us that history is indeed written by the winner. It's only too bad that a better writer didn't elect to make use of this compelling historical information.

Da Vinci Code Decoded: The Truth Behind the New York Times #1 Bestseller
again, a review (short version)


Writing a non-fiction book that covers a topic which is not only controversial, but normally considered to be folklore, is a considerable challenge. The only books of this kind that I am willing to read are those that stick to the topic, that are rational, and down to earth. Many books of this genre constantly beg the reader to stretch the imagination and tolerate shoddy research. The DaVinci Code Decoded, however, reads like an exceptional book about history, which is what it is. There are no apologies being made here for the fact that the truth is sometimes mysterious, and there is virtually zero time dedicated to sensationalism. Martin Lunn has written an informed book from an informed point of view, and he is himself as unique and sincere as it is required to claim any authority on the subject. References are made one by one as they appear in Brown's novel, and he simply states what he knows to be true. The Romantic aspect needs no assistance. Conclusions are drawn that are not at all like what Brown's novel has to say and at other moments, they agree. There is also exclusive information that Brown obviously didn't know, and frankly I don't think anyone else knew, either! This is certainly refreshing after reading many redundant books following the Holy Blood, Holy Grail. Writing this book was a matter of responsibility to an organization which was researching these topics long before Dan Brown's success. It was technically in the works long before any of the others which followed suit. There is certainly no "jumping on the gravy train" going on here. The most fascinating thing is that Dan Brown is actually the one who has the tiger by the tail, and Martin Lunn is rather capable of explaining why.

the da vinci code is masterful
The Da Vinci Code is an awesome, off your seat historical thriller that will keep you guessing until the end and when you think you know what is going on, it will flip upside down. The book is about a symbologist named Robert Langdon, who is strangely invited to have drinks with the famous curator, Jacques Sauniere, after Langdon's lecture. Saniere never showed up. When Langdon was back at his hotel in France, he is called by the judicial police and is taken to where Sauniere's body was found, murdered. The captain of the judicial police thinks he might have had something to do with it. After investigating for any clues at the crime scene, a woman named Sophie, who actually is the granddaughter of Sauniere. Secretly Sophie tells Langdon he is in danger and they escape from the police because of how suspicious they are. For most of the rest of the book, they follow the clues left by Sauniere, leading to what they think could be the Holy Grail or the location of the forbidden Lady Magdalene. Throughout the book they are helped and betrayed at the same time, and there are times where they are helpless or in complete control. The book has so many twist and turns, that you sometime have to read parts over again to understand it, but in the end, everything makes sense. I recommend this book to anyone and everyone looking for a good book involving history, art, corruption, secret symbols, secret organizations, murder, and one hell of a treasure hunt. This book is only one of the few books that is over 400 pages and at the same time a major page-turner. There was no part of this book that made me bored. It gave me a new respect for art and such people as Leonardo Da Vinci, who in many ways was a huge influence on the way we live now. Me being a picky reader can tell you this is a book worth buying and is so enlightening and crammed with information, that it truly is among the greats.

The Da Vinci Code
A quick read that encourages further discussion


While this book does read like a screenplay, I still found it intriguing, entertaining and apparently very well researched. It moves along quite rapidly and creates enough suspense to make the read worth it. Some of the scenes were over the top, but it's still a good book.One positive aspect of the book is that those who read it are actually looking into the many premises offered up by Mr. Brown. Whether reading other books on the subject, researching on-line, or just talking with others, people are actually using their heads. In my book, anything that encourages learning is a good thing!

Good who-dun-it


This was the first Dan Brown book I read. It's great. His weaving of fiction with non-fiction is excellent. There were excellent twists in the story and the final realization of who the bad guy was really suprised me.

Fascinating


This was a great read but not worth all the hype it received. I'm not going to reiterate the plotline because it has been done here, many times. You don't need to be religious to read this book. It's more of a suspense/mystery novel that will be sure to please everyone. The end was a bit choppy and seemed to jump all over but overall, this is a highly recommended book.

Not worth reading


After reading Dan Brown's "Deception Point", I now know Brown is a good author who missed the mark with the Davinci Code.I read somewhere where Brown's agent heard the plot and said "wow this is gonna be great" so they cranked up the promotion of this book. Unfortunately, I don't think the publisher read the book first.Da Vinci Code is about a symologist who gets brought into a murder case and ends up breaking codes after codes until he discovers the secret of the Holy Grail.Your view of Christianity will have a big impact on how you view this book. I happen to not believe Brown's premise, but the book could have been good if Brown had made it as good as some of his other novels.As Brown unveils each new answer to a code, it reads like an encyclopedia of art history and hidden symbols in famous paintings. While intriguing, Brown fails to make it interesting, especially for a novel. Brown would have written a better novel (in my opinion) if the characters had to overcome doubt about what they were discovering. But that wasn't the case. As each new "supposed truth" is discovered, the characters accept it as fact, in the same way that modern day Christians accept the facts about Jesus (and Brown criticizes this blidn faith).Brown has written good books, this just isn't one of them.
