Secrets of the Code: The Unauthorized Guide to the Mysteries Behind The Da Vinci Code
COME ON!


Burstein's book starts out in good faith-- to point out what parts of the Da Vinci Code are factual and to further explain them. However, it is soon realized that the book could be abridged to approximately ten pages without any loss of thought whatsoever. The first section is Mary Magdalene. Twenty pages later the section is still continuing, which may not be so bad if the issue was that comprehensive, however, Burnstein's source material is totally uninteresting and so repetitive and reiterated that it dulls the topic instead of making it interesting.Burnstein uses little if no source material from Christian or Catholic apologetics (there is a little box on one page that actual does name Christian defenses but it does not even explain the view points). All of the writers are radical liberals and the "conservatives" he names are more like center leaning liberals. Obviously Christian and/or Catholic apologetics should be consulted for a book explaining attacks on their nature. Other reviews mention that this book represents a wide range of views--but it doesn't.Burnstein's book makes the assumption that the reader has below average intelligence. In one section there is a question and answer to events in the Da Vinci Code. One question : Does the ODAN (an Opus Dei "watch group") exist? First of all, the website URL is mentioned in the Da Vinci Code--any half wit would be able to type it into the internet.An author who writes about future economics and who describes himself as an amateur in the genre that this book is written should NOT write a book about the Da Vinci Code.

The Da Vinci Code, Special Illustrated Edition
Still Stirring Things Up...


Dan Brown's "The Da Vinci Code" is an interesting book for a number of reasons. It is entertaining yet essentially light reading. It is also filled with tantalizing bits of information about the history of Christianity and a miriad of other related topics including paganism, Gnosticism, The Knights Templar, art history, and the Holy Grail.

The most fascinating aspect of this novel is the overwhelming public interest and controversy surrounding many of the assertions Brown makes in this book. It may be safe to assume that most people have little or no previous exposure to these topics and it certainly has generated extreme controversy in Christian circles. There are no less than 20 books in print that attempt to support or refute the information found in "The Da Vinci Code". I have never seen such polarization over a work of fiction before. That said, this illustrated edition is just the kind of thing to not only make the reading experience more enjoyable and interesting, but to continue to stir things up by providing visual references for the works of art, architecture, and religious symbology discussed in the text. Here it is pretty hard to dispute some of the things Brown talks about when it is staring at you in living color. This would seem to give the book's many detractors more work to do also.

"The Da Vinci Code" is not great literature by any means, but it is entertaining nonetheless. I would recommend it especially for the simple fact that it presents ideas that make people think. This was obviously not the original intent of this work of fiction, but has turned out to be one of its strongest selling points.

The story was much better the first time it was written by an author named Lewis Perdue under the title of Daughter of God.
Do yourself a favor and get the original.

I give this book five stars. I have never read a book that could maintain my interest from the first page. I think this book is genius. Not only does it have a suspenseful story plot. it also has information that will blow your mind. So if your into suspense thrillers or books on science, art, or religion, I suggest you check out this book.

Don't Waste Your Time or Money


This book was boring, biased, and poorly written. They assume the average American is not very intelligent and they never seem to get to the point - they're all over the place. Save your $.
