The Da Vinci Code
Best Book of the Year


This novel is basically an excuse for Dan Brown to expose some pet theories about DaVinci, the Holy Grail, and some intruiging notions about the history of the Christian church. Worthy and fascinating topics, if handled correctly. Unfortunately, Brown decides to dump all of these ideas into the middle of a half-baked police thriller filled with cardboard cut-out characters. The plot starts well but then rapidly disintegrates into one near-miss and close-escape after another, getting more and more unbelievable as it progresses. By the time I reached the end I just wanted to throw the book across the room and yell out, YEAH RIGHT.... But... that being said.... i read it in one night. It keeps the pages turning. The best part is the historical discussions and theories. In the hands of more skilled writer, this would be a fanstastic concept for a novel. Something a bit longer and more detailed, and not trapped within the lame framework of a made-for-TV-movie potboiler.A great opportunity wasted. Still, I recommend it just for exposing readers to some very interesing ideas and theories.

The Da Vinci Code
Great promise, quickly fades.


What starts out as a page turner, quickly becomes just another fast-paced movie script, with no character development. The plot grows more unbelievable and ultimately ridiculous.

The Da Vinci Code
An exciting page turner


I read this book in a week, it's pretty thick but after the first chapter you're hooked. The writing isn't excellent but Dan Brown sure knows how to set you up for suspense and excitement. At points I couldn't believe the amount of research that must have gone into writing this book. All of the theories were obviously fiction but the weird part was that they actually made sense. I loved this book! I have already read "Angels & Demons" another of Dan Brown's books and Da Vinci Code is by far the better of the two. Buy it you'll love it!

The Da Vinci Code
A masterful work...


This novel is a amsterful work that combines a realistic story of fiction with an amazing buffet of facts. I love books that take common knowledge and show how it could be/in fact is otherwise. This book fits that description in every chapter within. I hope to read his other works as soon as possible.

The Da Vinci Code, Special Illustrated Edition
Great Book


This piece was one of the best books I've read in a long time. Since I go to school and barely have time to read, when I do, I get so engrossed in it that I find myself reading at rapid paces and unable to put the book down. Dan Brown has done a fantastic job on this book. It's fun, very well thought out, creative, imagininative but most of all, suprisingly, sometimes accurate. That little fun fact mentioned somewhere in the book about Friday the 13th and why it is believed to be so unlucky is very interesting. That was news to me! There aren't enough words to describe this book. The movie, I hope, will be great.

As I would say, "Te la comiste, Dan!"

The Da Vinci Code
Entertaining tale; inaccurate background research


This is an entertaining tale, but to call it a historical novel is an egregious misnomer. His representation of historical "facts" pertaining to the Knights Templar and the allusions to the Rosecrucians are inaccurate at best, and irresponsible in any event. Cutting to the chase, everything else not withstanding, even if Jesus and Mary Magdalene had married and produced a "royal bloodlike," the Passion, Crucifixion, and Resurrection still stand on their own right. In other words, "What difference does could of this make in relation to one's faith and one's perception of Christianity?" The only difference is much padding to Mr. Brown's bank account. Greed, irresponsibility, and poor research in the guise of "Controversial Best Seller."

The Da Vinci Code
Sophmoric Plot, Interesting Facts, a Lot of Misconceptions


By the middle, I knew who the Teacher was and exactly how the story would end for Sophie's "family," all along I was one step ahead decoding the clues, and I was bored with the boy-meets-girl, good vs. evil paint-by-numbers plot. Thrill me it didn't. But I did learn something about global navigation, so there's that.Had Mr. Brown researched Christianity as thoroughly as he did the Sacred Feminine and secret societies, he would not have used it synonymously with Catholicism. It was a fatal flaw to say the Bible was not reliable because it had been passed down by fallible men who bent it toward their own agendas. His credibility evaporated in that one premise early on. Contrary to his assertion that there is evidence the scriptures have been compromised through time and translation, scientists and archeologists have discovered the original stone and papaya writings are identical to our Bible today. Do you really think that, if there is a God, He would allow his Word (or message) to be thwarted by men, evil or otherwise? If He created the universe and everything in it, doesn't it follow that He's certainly capable of protecting a vital message's integrity? (Now you owe it to yourself to check out Chuck Missler's "Hidden Treasures: In the Biblical Text." hidden treasures and "Cosmic Codes: Hidden Messages cosmic codes, et al.)And, if there is a God (a creator) and Jesus was not He come in the flesh to fulfill every prophecy in the Torah Shebiksav (the Written Torah) and the Torah Sheb'al Peh (the Oral Torah), WHY WOULD ANYONE WORSHIP A SPOUSE OF HIS? If Jesus was just a man, OK, but that makes his supposed wife just a woman. Duh! I found it very frustrating that such a self-acknowledged academic "expert" as Robert Langdon would not address that basic philosophical question, but turn around and "explain" the corruption in the Roman Catholic Church. According to Brown's logic, passing down a "truth" by word of mouth, songs, fairy tales, and artwork is only reliable when done by those protecting the "real truth" of the sacred feminine.I threw it away.

The Da Vinci Code
????


I'm extremely surprised that such a mediocre (meaning BAD) writer as Dan Brown can have this type of publicity. Besides the fact that the story is full of clich?s and it basically does not make sense, Mr. Brown simply has no idea of how to write anything, let alone a book. I would strongly suggest him to read, I don't know, Borges, Umberto Eco, but the mere notion of having these authors associated with Brown is ridiculous. He should definitely find another line of work. This is one of the worst books I have read in my life.

NO DOZE


I enjoyed the book immensely. Just a comment on the review from "A reader from Evergreen, CO, United States": Please look carefully at Leonardo's painting of The Last Supper. To the left of Mary Magdalene/John we see Saint Peter with a furious visage and a KNIFE (!) in his right hand. His left hand is making a gesture of "I'll slice his/her throat!" across the throat of that figure of Mary/John. It's there to see -- Leonardo painted it that way. There is more to that painting than meets the eye -- and Dan Brown's book wrote it that way --saying the equivalent of "There's more in heaven and earth than in your history . . ."

Don't waste your money!


If you are a catholic, please don?t waste your money in a book that calumniates the Catholic Church with all kind of accusations including murder, fraud and others. Even if you are not catholic but Christian or Muslim, you should know that the author denies the celibacy of our Lord Jesus and other truths of our faith.View of Opus Dei is delirious. Although I am not a member I have known Opus Dei quite enough to make me grin when reading a member committing murder or the Opus Dei Prelate involved in the plot.By the was, almost all the text written in Spanish is full of grammar mistakes, perhaps like this review but at least I don?t earn my money writing books.
