  • Fast-paced thriller

    I decided to read The Da Vinci Code largely because of the storm of controversy that followed it’s release. I had never heard of Dan Brown, nor was I particularly well educated around the bible, so my decision to read this book was a little bit of a surprise one. I was not disappointed. The book follows the main protagonist Robert Langdon, a Harvard University professor of symbology. He is disturbed by the authorities in the middle of the night, having been implicated in the murder of the museum curator at the Louvre, Paris. With the assistance of police crypotographer Sophie Neveau, they embark on a quest to clear his name and find the real killer. The book itself is a fictional work, but Dan Brown has done an exhaustive amount of research into the history and development of Christianity, and the sacred ‘Holy Grail’. That said, I decided to take the book on face value as a thriller, and my decision to read it was rewarded. I’m not going to provide any spoilers in this review (the book is documented well enough to allow everyone else to do that), but what I will do is make a few observations about the book itself. The way that the story flows is seamless. The pair go from Paris, taking in London and Rome. The scenes are beautifully set placing you right in the thick of the action. The pace of the story is fast throughout, barely allowing you to pause for breath. I found the way the book was written allowed and often forced longer spells of reading that I had planned. The chapters are short, often ending with a hook, urging you to read “just one more”. The twists and turns of the plot leave you second-guessing what is going to happen next. For some, the subject matter of Christianity would put them off reading his book. As a non-Christian, I had no issue with reading this book. If you do read this book, I am certain that you will enjoy it for what it is; a well-written, fast-paced thriller that will have you glued to the pages.

  • Very Entertaining Exciting Read Most Enjoyable

    The Da Vinci Code Dan Brown in his Da Vinci Code invents a fictional story wound round the history of Christianity entwined with history of encryption. It includes countless related topics such as paganism, the Holy Grail, The Knights Templar, etc. The book also exposes the reader to information about art, history and symbology. However, there are a number of reports that support or refute the evidence found in Dan Brown’s book, with particular reference to history and religious information and this has produced some disagreement among certain Christian groups. This conflict in itself has a certain mystic appeal to many a reader. It seems a pity that some cannot accept the book for its thrilling and entertaining dialogue. Dan Brown may not be precise with his facts, but the novel produces compelling reading and once started one cannot put the book down till the very last page has been read.

  • Very good book

    A novel plenty of cultural and historical details which you will read without breathing. Characters are complex and thus interesting.

  • Da Vinci code

    Quite good, exciting but now a bit dated as the controversial bits that the catholic church wanted to suppress are now readily available on line.

  • Da vinci code

    After seeing the movie so many times years ago it was great to be taken on a journey through the authors eyes rather than the screen writers. The adaption to the big screen was very true to the novel but some obvious noticeable differences. Even though I had seen the movie and basically new the whole story I could not put the book down. Fantastic read

    Thanks for your feedback!
