The Da Vinci Code
The book rocks, BUT


Hi! I thought this was a great book, it was a real eye-opener to those who had yet to learn about the origin of the church and whatnot. The book was very overwhelming for me, it challenged much of what I've been taught, but also opened quite a few doors. I'd recommend this book to anyone. Not only is it full of real information, but it's fiction and tells of an awesome adventure story. A real page-tuner! Most people might take the time to write in about tiny details about certain paintings that do not allign correctly. I too have a corection to make! The character Robert Langdon claims one of his students came to him bearing The Lion King on DVD. Hardly possible! The Lion King isn't out on DVD yet, silly Dan Brown......

The Da Vinci Code
Superb Page Turner


This book is everything a good novel should be. It's smart, beautifully written, paced with amazing precision, filled with action and bursting at the seams with religious insight and theories that have rarely seen such public attention. Although the latter is heavily borrowed from other source, Brown presents them in a story that compells you to pay attention through a page turning plot and full, dynamic characters. Brown's novel hits the ground running from the first page and draws you into the mystery of an ancient society and the secrets they were charged to keep. Throughout the story the main characters are struggling against time to decode the multiple messages left for them by the recently murdered curator of the Louvre. One of the great aspect of the novel is the reader own involvement to solve the riddles and codes. You are constantly toying with your own ideas of what the solutions could be. Most of the obstacles in The Da Vinci Code have solutions far beyond traditional logic and crytological methods. In fact, the relation of the answers to the character is one of the things that endears readers to the main characters of this novel. A few of the riddles are actually so easy that they discredit the characters (The bank code? Come on) but this is certainly very rare. Brown gracefully treads a fine line between fact and conjecture by constantly enforcing the fact that while the arguments in the book are extremely persuasive, they are arguments made by characters who firmly believe in what they are searching for. Truly and amazing book.

The Da Vinci Code
K.O.? or O.K.?


What I liked about the Da Vinci Code:The story's revelations of the symbology to be found in the works of Leonardo Da Vinci
The construction of the story around the alternative history of JesusWhat I didn't like in particular about the Da Vinci Code:Too many character perspectives are, in my opinion, artlessly included -- each character's thoughts are shown in endless asides. This caused me to be detached from the main protagonist to the point of not really caring whether he managed to get out of each jam or not.The author's need to have his protagonist exhaustively explain absolutely everything to the point of including flashbacks where his protagonist exhaustively explains absolutely everythingThis was the first book I've read by Dan Brown. I would read another, but would be prepared to possibly find that the non-fiction information it contained is more interesting than the actual story.

The Da Vinci Code
prepare to suspend your disbelief


I usually bore easily when it comes to reading novels, but Dan Brown's "DaVinci Code" kept me intrigued from beginning to end. His attention to detail was amazing. I was in France a few years ago and found his descriptions of the Lourve Museum painstakingly accurate. Each plot twist made me want to finish the book even faster to see how it would end. I hope to see Brown write more novels involving the symbologist Robert Langdon. I just bought Brown's earlier novel "Angels and Demons", hoping his earlier works are on par with "The DaVinci Code". It was an excellent book....Highly recommended

Truth and Fiction in the Da Vinci Code: A Historian Reveals What We Really Know about Jesus, Mary Magdalene, and Constantine
Essential for DaVinci Code fans


Bart Ehrman is a specialist on ancient Christian documents (orthodox and gnostic) and correctly understands Jesus to have been a mistaken apocalyptic prophet. He was made to write a book like this. Most responses to The DaVinci Code have come from defensive evangelicals, but this is a refreshing analysis by an expert.

It's sad that a critique like this is even necessary. Are people so gullible that they can't recognize sensationalism when they see it? Apparently not, especially when Dan Brown misleads them by claiming that "all descriptions of documents" in his novel "are accurate" (page 1 of The DaVinci Code). Ehrman sets the record straight: (1) Q is not a scandalous document concealed by the Vatican (?!); it's a hypothetical source which many scholars believe contained material common to Matthew and Luke. (2) The Dead Sea Scrolls are not Christian documents; they are Essene. (3) Gnostic gospels like Thomas do not present a more human Jesus than the gospels of the New Testament; just the opposite, they present a more divine Jesus. (4) Indeed: "The oldest and best documents we have for knowing the life of Jesus are the four gospels of the New Testament. This is not simply the view of Christian historians; it is the view of serious historians of antiquity of every kind, from committed Christians to hard-core atheists." (Ehrman, p 102)

But this book is more than just a catalog of Dan Brown's stupidities (the word is not too strong). It's an elegant tour through ancient sources and teaches us about the historical Jesus, the historical Mary, apocalyptic Christianity, gnostic Christianity, various Christian views of women and the "divine feminine", and what really happened at the Council of Nicea. (As any student of Christian history knows, the gathering at Nicea was not, contra Brown, to decide whether or not Jesus was divine; everyone believed that, and had believed it for centuries!)

People like to learn history through entertainment, and this is a good thing. We should rejoice at the attempts of novelists and film directors to bridge us with the past. Parke Godwin's Sherwood is a superb novel penetrating through the myths of Robin Hood -- fiction, to be sure, but based on plausibility and accurate depictions of figures like William the Conqueror. The same is true of Jack Whyte's Camulod Chronicles (about King Arthur). And I even liked Mel Gibson's Passion, despite its own historical problems. But Dan Brown's DaVinci Code is silly beyond measure -- as silly as it is popular. It isn't based on anything remotely plausible. It owes to fantasy, a misrepresentation of ancient documents, and a crackpot theory (Jesus married Mary Magdalene and sired a "Holy Grail" lineage) discredited back in the '80s.

Ehrman's book is accessible, fun to read, and part of a growing trend in scholarly responses to religious novels and films. It's sure to interest people further in a subject they would otherwise have never thought to pursue. For that reason alone we can thank Dan Brown for writing such a laughable novel.
