Brilliant


Very grasping religious suspense. Dan Brow is my second best after Jean Christophe Grang?.

The Da Vinci Code
Charming plot for non-mystery buffs


The writing style is a little plodding, but the plot is charming in many places. Mystery buffs will find his abuse of cliches and conventions distracting. There isn't much that's original in the plot. For a great historical thriller, Umberto Eco's Name of the Rose is far superior. Even so, it's not a BAD book. It has pleasant moments and for readers, is a good way to spend a few nights.

The Da Vinci Code should have remained a secret


This book is a great read; it is a page turner, but it's like the proverbial "Chinese food." A few minutes after you have finished it you feel as if you've read nothing at all. I don't believe that the Catholic church cares one way or the other about the "Holy Grail." The "quest" for this undocumented object is perpetuated by fiction writers, Hollywood producers, and misguided individuals who believe that objects can be endowed with supernatural power-the Jerry Springer crowd.The great tragedy about this mystery book is that the writer wastes his time on this boring subject. He is multi-talented as a writer, but an untalented chooser of what to write about. Isn't this what editors and agents are for?Try again, please, Dan, but next time choose a believable story.

The Da Vinci Code
Good research but way too many twists in the plot


I'm not a Grail devotee, but it looks to me as if Brown's research on the subject (as well as on cryptography and symbology) is pretty accurate. But he needs to take lessons on thriller writing from the late Robert Ludlum.Although Ludlum's characters were larger than life his story and plotlines were always logical - you could pick up any of his books and trace out what happened and why. "The Da Vinci Code" relies far too much on coincidence and inference, and when the villain's identity was actually revealed the story and its author lost a great deal of credibility. Even more credibility was lost in the climax and anti-climax that followed.I can see how this book became so popular because of it's main subject (the mystery of the Holy Grail) and the obvious research that the author did on that subject. But as a thriller or mystery writer Brown falls far short of the mark.

Let me state that I rarely read "best sellers"...in fact I avoid that whole Best Seller wall like the plague. In fact I only picked up this book because of several weird instances of synchronicity (which I won't bore you with hehe).I had trouble putting the book down once I started reading it. I found the story quite compelling, the characters multi-faceted and interesting, and refreshingly devoid of gratuitous sex and violence. Yes there are some murders going on. But the Terminator movies were much more graphically violent. In my mind the murders only served to advance the plot.As for the historical accuracy, well I'm no Biblical scholar. However there is indeed QUITE a bit of corroborating evidence (confirmed by actual historians), for much of the stuff cited in the book. And the more that is coming out about early Gnosticism, the more it looks like the early Church was indeed engaging in a cover up. But those issues are really irrelevant if you are looking for a good NOVEL, which is what this is. It's not a theology textbook people. If you are some ultra-conservative wanker, stay away from the book completely, as your fragile little world is unlikely to handle having your religion questioned. Everyone else though, with even slightly open and curious minds, is likely to find the book a fascinating and good read.

The Da Vinci Code
An O.K. Start...


This book has packaged esoterica that has been available for years into a form that the masses will swallow; fiction. Nevertheless, nearly all of the secret societies, artwork, and history are accurately described. If you want to read a very good historical take on all of this, I would suggest:The Templar Revelation, by Pickett and PrinceAnother book, Holy Blood, Holy Grail covers the same topics, but The Templar Revelation contains newer research on the subject and corrects many inaccuracies in Holy Blood, Holy Grail. In addition, Holy Blood, Holy Grail is an incredibly dry book.People are attacking the DaVinci Code for its few historical inaccuracies, but unfortunately, there has been strong historical evidence to support a different take on christianity for years. The next time someone says, "The DaVinci Code gets the date of the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls wrong!" be armed with the true history from The Templar Revelation to cut their argument to pieces. Which shouldn't be hard, because most christians aren't big on doing historical research ;)

F**K this book! And read Behind the Dark Curtain instead!


This book is worthless. If you liked The Da Vinci Code, then there is no need to buy this book. Go buy Behind the Dark Curtain instead, for another great secret sociaty read.

The Da Vinci Code
A Must Read for Everyone!


To be honest, I'm not much of an avid reader, but one day however one of my friends had this urge to force me into reading this book. After some research I discovered this book had pretty high ratings, and was on many top-selling charts for days. I gave in, and finally got my copy in which I didn't start a few weeks later. However, I was amazed how once I picked this book up I never seemed to put it down again. The book starts with a simple but intriguing murder case of the curator of a museum at night, where nobody knew what had happened. Coincidently, this man was also a member of a secret society named "Priory of Sion" that had existed long ago and consisted many famous characters in the Renaissance and the Enlightenment such as Sir Isaac Newton and Botticelli. With his life nearing an end, he left in the form of a cipher that appears to be a form of ancient coding. Thus this ignites a series of events and clues being discovered in Da Vinci??s works that would ultimately draw two people to the answer the ancient secret society was seeking. It??s a simple storyline, and a simple plot. But the character development and the plot twists were so appealing since it wasn??t completely obvious. I liked the way the author had cliffhanger endings to each chapter in order to further develop the plot. It had added this sense of suspense and curiosity within me to know how the plot will continue to develop and how it will become. What was much more fascinating were, the details throughout the story of various artworks, culture, and individuals. I was surprised to find that all the content in this book about various people and artworks were all true and do exist! However, I have to say that it did become easier to put down this book towards the end. The cliffhangers started to get annoying occasionally and I??d get tired of reading the next page just to find out the solution to the conflict. Never the less, it??s a great book for everyone, but do beware that it does have blood and gore in a few areas.

Properties of the Fibonacci numbers are CORRECT.


Just enjoy this erudite journey (although at last the journey seems to be an itinerary and somewhat a waste of time, alas.) But this is indeed a pageturner, once you begin reading and you can not put it down. And, relax, this is a popular fiction. And a very fun and gripping fiction, with many extraordinary knowledge. And since it is a fiction, never mind unavoidable occurence of inaccuracies and exaggerations.However, being a mathematician, at least I confirm that those properties of the Fibonacci numbers mentioned in the book are CORRECT.
