The Da Vinci Code
One of the best books I have read for a while


This was an excellent book that was very difficult to put down when started. A fascinating read with lots of twists and turns of a classic chase, but also so much information about so many aspects of religion. Fascinating. And I am not a religious nut. I would not normally pick up a book for that reason, but this book taught me something about religion while being incredibly easy to read, and couched in an excellent chase.BUY IT - end of discussion

The Da Vinci Code
A Stunning, Well Researched, Beautiful Book !!


Through a very ingenious mystery plot, Dan Brown tries to present the complex roots of modern Christianity. The book makes one wonder why women were cast out of most modern religions, so it is not the "normal" dogma that we are used to, and may explain some of the more negative & emotional reviews.Contrary to those reviews, this book is NOT an anti-religion tome. It celebrates and is very respectful of human spirituality, in all its forms. It tries to explain, in a historical context, how religions came to be what they are today.The end is particularly wonderful, with a final analysis that should leave everyone feeling good about their beliefs, whatever they are. BUT, let me emphasize, The Da Vinci Code it isn't *just* about religion -- it is also a thrilling detective story. Despite a great opening page, I do agree that the beginning is just a tiny bit slow, but is more than compensated for, later on. It is so well written, that I could not figure out who the "bad guy" was even at the very end! Dan Brown weaves a twisting and turning plot that finishes elegantly, without lowering itself to explaining a bunch of loose ends, in the final chapter!I can't wait for the movie to come out!

Cracking Da Vinci's Code: You've Read the Fiction, Now Read the Facts
If you hated this book please read this...


I would like to begin this review by stating that not all those who read and enjoy this book are Christians who felt shaken by the DeVinci Code. Quite the contrary, I read brown's account of history and was so irritated by his blatant disregard of proven historical documentation and references. That is why I was so glad that Cracking the...code was written. It was a great response to Brown's work and gave me a sense of peace that those who are floundering or looking for a religion have an answer for Brown's very convincing lies. There is a reason that Brown's books can be found in the fiction section and Cracking the devinci code is not. Despite brown's prologue about his book being entirely fictional, it is simply a great novel. Very compelling, a fast read and an exciting mystery to say the least...however, it is not a history lesson. If you want the real truth and the real facts, Read CRACKING THE DeVINCI CODE.

The Da Vinci Code
a rebirth of suspense and mystery to literature


its hard to find a good suspense and mystery novel these days. well its hard to find one with the eloquance of dan brown who has put thought and research into the story's locations, art, and cultural aspects. even if you have never heard of opus dei before opening the book dan brown explains it in the way that everyone can understand it. the beginnings mysterious "he did this to himself murder" creates suspense for the famouse louve currator. i love the cultural aspects to the novel in its french point of view. "what do you think of the pyramid (the one at the louve designed by im pei)?" made me laugh on the french's view of their own culture. for a fan of mystery with the promise of not a plot to flop like other mysteries then dan brown presents to you a novel of greatness.

The Da Vinci Code
GREAT start, poor ending, one huge hole...


Everybody complains about the history. "These details are wrong, the history books say this..." and on ad infinitum. It's fiction. Says so on the copyright page. Fiction. Grounded in reality, but ultimately made up.That people give this book one star for "being bad history" is just grossly ignorant. It is not a history text, it's a novel. And, it's a BAD novel. The plot speeds along, and is the book's saving grace. There is little to no characterization, and clunky prose that sticks out like a sore thumb on subsequent rereadings. (I admit that I was flummoxed by the quick pace of the book, only on review did I realize just how badly it was written.)I bought this for my fiance for Christmas cause she likes DaVinci, and for making her happy, it gets five stars. No stars subtracted for being "bad history"; four stars subtracted for being too badly written for the money I spent on the hardcover, and one star added for a quick plot that glosses over all the obvious problems."Almost inconceivably, the gun into which she was now staring was clutched in the pale hand of an enormous albino."?-Evan

Only Way to read the code!


I received the Illustrated edition of Da Vinci Code for my birthday and I am so glad I read this edition. It was very helpful to have the works of art to see as I read, made it the code much clearer. In fact, I can't imagine reading this book with out the illustrations. The novel it self is awesome, edge of your seat thriller/mystery. I'd never read any thing like it. "The Da Vinci Code" has been my favorite thriller read of 2005!

The Da Vinci Code
A tabloid for conspiracy nuts.


This book is poorly written and researched. Dan Brown has a interesting subject, but he completely fabricates history and distorts facts. But Dan Brown does a great job in crafting a book to dupe conspiracy nuts. For anyone who studies history, this is a difficult book to get through. I encourage people to take a deeper look into any of the "historical accounts" in this book.....its embarassing. There are too many facts to dispute, but here are just a few...-Most Knights of Templar were crushed by King Philip the Fair of France....not the Catholic church.
-Brown's characters state that the Church burned five million women as witches, which show Dan Brown's malicious ignorance of historical record. The latest figures for deaths during the European witch craze are between 30,000 to 50,000 victims. Not all were executed by the Church, not all were women, and not all were burned.
-He claims that the motions of the planet Venus trace a pentacle (the so-called Ishtar pentagram) symbolizing the goddess. But it isn't a perfect figure and has nothing to do with the length of the Olympiad. The ancient Olympic games were celebrated in honor of Zeus Olympias, not Aphrodite, and occurred every four years.
-Brown's analysis of da Vinci's work is just as ridiculous. He presents the Mona Lisa as an androgynous self-portrait when it's widely known to portray a real woman, Madonna Lisa, wife of Francesco di Bartolomeo del Giocondo. The name is certainly not - as Brown claims - a mocking anagram of two Egyptian fertility deities Amon and L'Isa (Italian for Isis).

The Da Vinci Code
A Brilliant, Tightly Wound Tale


Robert Langdon is awoken in the early morning hours by a Paris police officer. He is rushed to the Louvre musuem where he is introduced to a shocking site: the curator of the museum - murdered, and positioned in a bizarre pose on the floor with scribbling and writing on his body. What's more shocking - the curator did this to himself. Within moments, Langdon is drawn into an underground world of hidden societies, Catholic schisms, Albino monks, and a devastating secret that could shake the very foundation of Christianity.The da Vinci Code goes from zero to sixty in the first two pages and never lets up. But more than being a sharp, witty mystery, this book flawlessly incorporates biblical history, mystic theology, astrology, and much more into a perfect synthesis of faith tradition.Dan Brown tells readers before they start the book that all descriptions of symbols and history are fact. That may be, but it seems to fit together just too neatly and perfectly. But you're having too much fun reading the book to possibly care.I can't fathom someone being able to put this book down. Journey to Paris, London, and back in time with Leonardo da Vinci, Jesus Christ, and Mary Magdalene - read the da Vinci Code!
