The Da Vinci Code
Great Read


I was standing on the beach last summer talking to a friend when she recommended this book. I enjoyed it so much that after reading it, I went on to read every other book that Dan Brown has written, and I loved them all. Several times during the reading of this book I had to go to the Internet to look up items involved in the story, and felt that I ended up with a book that not only entertained me, but enriched me from a cultural standpoint. However, there's an even bigger story out there. What if Jesus returned and everyone missed it? "A Thief in the Night" by William Sears tells the story of his personal search for the answer to this question, and I'm hoping Dan Brown will pick up on it someday and turn it into another best seller.

Good read but what a load


This is a good mystery with puzzles to solve, historical sights, interesting happenings and escapes, but flimsy in its basis. Enjoyed it but couldn't take it seriously at all, almost laughable. But you might like it.

The Da Vinci Code
Rather hollow, but fun


People either love or hate Dan Brown's book. I seem to a minority falling in the middle. It was an easy, breezy read that passed the time quickly and would be a fine companion on a long, but not too long, airplane trip. The characters are rather two dimensional and a reader who scratches the surface of the data presented will find it about an inch deep. Many reades are taking his theory as gospel, which is unfortunate. Some of what he presents is plausible, some possible, but other parts verge on the outlandish. Born has no background in language, religion, or history so his position must be taken with a grain of salt. Some of the theories he offers can be found in other books, particularly the grail theory, but that does not make it true. Other material on subjects like the divine feminine are interesting but often taken in places data does not justify.In any case, people looking to learn the history of the early church should look elsewhere. People looking for a quick read that requires little thought may want to pick this up.

What is Fact? What is Fiction?


Along with "Charm School" by Nelson DeMille, this is a book I could not put down. It is painful to part company with this fantastic tale. It is so believable, I became confused between what is fact and fiction...I had to find a copy of "The Last Supper" painting to confirm a major crux of this story, it is that believable. As the plot twists and turns, I was so wrapped in the story, I found myself dreading the worst for the protagonists despite "knowing" that the book had to go on. I cannot rate this book high enough...I'm almost sure Dan Brown's other books won't be as good, but I intend to read them all to find out.

An Amazing Page Turner


I admit, I was clueless about the hype surrounding this book. I just knew that it was on the bestseller list. So, I saw it on the library shelf, and thought I'd give it a whirl. My favorite books are thrillers and mysteries, but sadly, the stuff that's being churned out these days is pretty much garbage. I didn't start this one with much hope, either.Boy was I surprised! I am a former Christian minister (now a "New Ager") who's just now starting to explore the Divine Feminine. (You know how taboo *that* is, right? And believe me, it ain't just Catholicism...) I knew that El Shaddai meant many-breasted one, but that was about it. The information in this book blew me away. It all made perfect sense to me. (Although I can certainly see how it would enrage Christians!) It's very rare that you find a book that is both an engaging work of fiction *and* a deliverer of historical and mystical ideas. It has whet my appetite to explore the Divine Feminine and this aspect to spirituality that I've been missing out on due to my upbringing. For some reason, I felt the first 3/4 was the best part of the book, but it was very satisfying on all levels--even the ending. However, Brown gets into too much detail with architecture, the looooong cat and mouse part at Westminister Abbey, etc. A good deal could have been trimmed from this book.The characters are memorable and unique: an Albino monk, an Englishmen in Paris who walks on metal crutches, a hot-head French capitan,... I felt as if I could see each and every one. Setting wise, all the French streets and architectual references were lost on me, but the details didn't take away from the pace of the novel, nor the intrigue. Technically, Brown did everything he was supposed to: ended the chapters with hooks, shifted perspectives fluidly, "showed not told", etc. It's formulaic...but formula *works*.You'll enjoy this book if you love good fiction and if you have an open mind.

De-Coding Da Vinci: The Facts Behind the Fiction of The Da Vinci Code
Well researched, unlike the book it debunks


Amy Welborn's well researched book is a must read for anyone who is in a position to have to respond to the fiction of the "Da Vinci code." De-Coding Davinci is in agreement with history and historians throughout the world who take exception to Brown's flight of fancy wrapped up with a smattering of reality.If you watched the National Geographic special or the MSNBC special on Brown's Da Vinci Code book, then you already know that it isn't only Christians, but world and art historians who have to deflect the false history of Brown's popular book. Since readers have begun taking alternate-history books as true and making professional historians re-prove the past, a good place to start is with the Amy Welborn's book.

The Da Vinci Code, Special Illustrated Edition
C- for Accuracy, A+ for Fun


'The Da Vinci Code' is an old-fashioned page-turner. Although the fiendishly-difficult puzzles in the story aren't all that fiendish (or even particularly difficult), the plot moves like a runaway train. Intrigue, murder, history, art, religion, and conspiracy... What more could a reader ask for? There's even a sex cult. (Okay, it's a pagan fertility cult and the sex takes place off-camera, but it's the thought that counts.) Dan Brown does a wonderful job bundling a series of diverse historical events into a coherent and believable story, populated with compelling characters. The good guys are good, the bad guys are bad, and the bumbling cops are... well... bumbling.

I'd love to give this book five stars, but I can't. The historical `facts' are bent a bit too far for the sake of the story, and one recurring plot device reminded me unpleasantly of that trick that children love to play at Christmas: the large and colorfully wrapped box, which contains a smaller box, which contains a smaller box... Although watching the victim open box after box seems endlessly entertaining to the 11 year old perpetrator of the gag, the game is a bit tiresome after the second box. By the time you get to the last tiny box at the center, whatever present it contains will almost certainly fail to justify the effort.

Those quibbles aside, however, `The Da Vinci Code' is a lot of fun.

The Da Vinci Code--what a disappointment


This book kept my eyes glued to it! The plot compiles one conflict on top of another and switches point-of-view frequently. In doing so, Brown keeps the reader in suspense. The symbology also give something to think about. CHRISTIANS BEWARE, I am a staunch believer in Jesus Christ, and at times in the novel some of the conversations made me cringe. It is not that the story presents Christianity in a bad light(excluding Opus Dei), it is that it makes no distinction between the fact and fiction. Either way, the book is a great read and was definitely worth my time.
