The Da Vinci Code
I couldn't stop reading it...!


Yes, I really enjoyed this book. I read the Spanish version because it came easily into my hands (perhaps I'll read the original Language), and I finished it in only 4 days, from Tuesday evening to Friday night (note: I work 9 hours a day)... just couldn't leave it. The history don't have any weak or boring part... and the theme... is great!
I give 4 stars cause in the last 2 pages the final get obvious, but anyway, this book worth my sleepless nights.

The Da Vinci Code
Don't believe the hype


Reading this book was an utter waste of a few hours. It pretends to be have some historical and scholarly significant in the tradition of "The Name of the Rose" but it doesn't even rate to be mentioned in the same breath. I guess one was supposed to absorb Dan Brown's version of history with the same naivete that his main female character seems to display at every new revelation. Didn't she grow up with a noted art scholar?I will only state one example among many in the book which I found preposterous: the suggestion that Da Vinci painted the image of Mary Magdalene (known as the image of John to the rest of us) next to Jesus in his famous last supper! Also, having recently seen the newly restored fresco in Milan, the vibrant reds of "Mary's" clothing but which in reality is the depiction of John the disciple could hardly be called a vibrant red. I found this reference particularly irksome because of the use of Da Vinci's name in the title.I gave this two stars for the storytelling value but I would rate it 0 on scholarship.

Dan Brown: The most pretencious writer (next to Victor Hugo)


If you are as pretencious as I am, you will understand Dan Brown's perspective, and achievment in writing this book. He succeeded by making the readers intrigued, aswell as writing a well put, provocative, and puzzling mystery. As you read on throughout the book, you get the feeling of the protagonist, Robert Langdon. This number 1, is a big achievemnet. But when the reader gets to the end, and finishes the last words of the Da Vinci Code, you feel let down, and utterly upset. Do you know why? Well basiclly because the end is a piece of HOGWASH! Sentimental, and sappy are the only words to describe the end. The climax reaches its highest point about fifty pages before the ending. If you share the same perspective as i do, and truly respect Dan browen's genius, read up to page 420, and STOP! This will truly let you appreciate the book and the author. 2 million stars for the plot, 2 million stars for effort, 1 star just for ruining the end. So please, give yourself a break, read the book, appreciate the plot and effort and stop, before you shed to tears.



P.S - Honestly, Dan Brwon must be the most pretncious writer of all time, that was the first reason i picked up the book.

The Da Vinci Code
Here I go again, lowering my Amazon rating.


Some time ago I discovered people don't like negative reviews, but... What the heck! I have to comment on this book!The Da Vinci Code was surrounded by so much hype I was eagerly waiting for my wife to finish reading it to start. I went to the web pages in both English and Spanish, and tried to solve the mistery. The disappointment started to creep in when I had to answer a question asking the name of the police chief according to the book... Anyway, let's talk about the book.I started enjoying the book greatly. I had visited Paris and London on my honeymoon, and the book descriptions brought back welcomed memories. The book gets two stars instead of one because of this, and the fact I was able to finish it.I had heard the Catholic Church was angry because of this book, and was expecting some deep research and shocking truths. Instead, I found some ludicrous propositions, such as saying that patriarchal societies started 2,000 years ago, at the same time as Christianism.It also goes on explaining the golden ratio, expressing views that go against "The Golden Ratio : The Story of PHI, the World's Most Astonishing Number" by Mario Livio, who does an in depth (if somewhat dense) recall of the golden ratio.It talks about cyphers, and for that, you could read "The Code Book: The Science of Secrecy from Ancient Egypt to Quantum Cryptography" by Simon Singh, which is great, again more in depth and, unlike the Code, believable.And then, the author sense of thriller is too soap-opera style for me: "You know, I have a terrible secret I could tell you, but I'm not doing it now!". Please! I'd rather take my suspense from Stephen King, Michael Chrichton or Peter Hamilton any day.Maybe I would have liked better the book if my expectations had not been so high. It is a teen book, without much substance.

Recommend this illustrated edition


If you have yet to read the Da Vinci Code, buy this book and read it. While there are not a great many, those visual aids -- schematics, photos, maps -- that are included are extremely helpful. Some of the photographs are breathtaking.

This book is exactly as it's cracked up to be. It is extraordinarily well conceived and superbly written. One has to admire an author who can write minute detail without it being perceived as filler. Every detail presented in The Da Vinci Code is pertinent. It is also much to the author's credit to be able to keep so much detail straight and to present it in such a way as to keep the reader interested. The plot is constructed so expertly that it all seems quite plausible (hence the controversy). Intrigue abounds. The characters are believable and well-constructed. As I often do with a book as jam-packed with information as this one, I set it down periodically to give myself time to absorb what I'm reading. It may be only a few minutes, or an hour, and, occasionally, a day. The short chapters make setting it down and picking it up again very easy to do.

This book is a novel (again, that's fiction, folks) about the closeness of Mary Magdelene to Jesus and how the "true" knowledge of their relationship might affect Christian religion and practice as we know them today. Certainly the emergence of the power of the sacred feminine would cause problems for those who see Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism and Islam as, primarily (and in some cases totally), the realm of men. For me, the most important phrase in the whole book, considering the topic, was young Sophie's answer to her grandfather's query about the possibility that Jesus had a girlfriend. Her innocent and unbiased child's answer was, "I wouldn't mind." Out of the mouths of babes....

I would recommend that all those with any awareness of the spiritual and organized religion aspect of mankind read this book and then talk about it with others. If I could give it more than five stars, I would. The Da Vinci Code is a fascinating and exciting read.

For those interested in a NOVEL about the papacy and the election of a new Pope, I recommend the book and the movie The Shoes of the Fisherman by Morris West.
