    most of us have heard of this controverisal book it takes an open minded person to read this and to remember it is just fiction but it brings up a lot of important uestions about the Christian church and the loss of paganism and the respect of the Goddess or the Woman I don't care if I am the only one who likes this book it is my own truth and i will think what i want to think Dan Brown didn't LEAD me or anyone else he OPENED ou

    No I am not No I am not going to write a review about this piece of nonsense just because I had yet ANOTHER of those incredibly annoying conversations in a bookstore to top it off No I am notOh for goodness sake It is NOT a great book to broaden your cultural horizons and whatever the humbug mentioned on Leonardo it is NOT euivalent to reading a book researched by a REAL art historian which is something entirely different from a blind fo

On joins forces with a gifted French cryptologist Sophie Neveu and learns the late curator was involved in the Priory of Sion an actual secret society whose members included Sir Isaac Newton Botticelli Victor Hugo and Da Vinci among others In a breathless race through Paris London and beyond Langdon and Neveu match wits with a faceless powerbroker who seems to anticipate their every move Unless Langdon and Neveu can decipher the labyrinthine puzzle A thriller devoid of pacing or exciting language A mystery devoid of clues foreshadowing or facts A tell all of half truths based upon a forged document written by a schizophrenic conman A character driven modern novel devoid of character The second draft of Angels and Demons Page turning action thanks to the literary euivalent of pulling out at the moment of orgasm A spiritual awakening built on new age conspiracy theory This book is many things and none of them good new or interesting However it is an excellent litmus test for idealistic delusionUpon the first reading I must admit I found it a bit interesting but then I turned the final page and there was no bibliography No explanation of how the author became familiar with all the concepts he claimed to faithfully portray He wrote this book and pretended it was a history book and then refused to support it in any way And any history you can t check up on is a bad one He s no better than James Frey In fact he may be worse since I know people who base their religious beliefs on this book whereas Frey s only crime was wishing he was Scarface And really what macho thirtysomething male doesn tBrown had good reasons for hiding his sources they were forged by con man Pierre Plantard and snuck into the Bibliotheue National in Paris back in the seventies And it s not like Plantard got away with it either the whole Priory of Sion thing was debunked thirty years before this book was even writtenThe artistic iconography that figures heavily into the mystery is also completely made up and was declared ludicrous by an art history professor of my acuaintance There are a lot of well known symbols and allusions in classic art but none of them resemble Brown s claims The whole hinge on which the plot turns the notion that an inverted triangle is automatically symbolic of women makes about as much sense as declaring that the use of the swastika by 3rd century BC Buddhists was proof that they were fascistsThe rest of Brown s book is filled with the sort of cliched religious conspiracies you get from your first year as a theology student Not only that but these conspiracies were already explored by better writers in Foucault s Pendulum and the Illuminatus Trilogy Well I ve already done legitimate historical research on this review than Brown did in his whole book so I guess I ll call it a day

In time the Priory's ancient secret and an explosive historical truth will be lost foreverTHE DA VINCI CODE heralds the arrival of a new breed of lightning paced intelligent thrillerutterly unpredictable right up to its stunning conclusionBonus disc includes Dan Brown's Oct speech Symbols secrets science scripture beyond The Da Vinci code presented at the Univ of New Hampshire and an interview with Akiva Goldsman screenwriter of The Da Vinci Code 5 stars to Dan Brown s The Da Vinci Code Most folks have seen the movie and probably not read the book What a loss for them That said I know a lot of people don t enjoy Brown s books believing he is too commercialized and over exaggerated in his style While I can understand why someone may think that I don t agree I love the complexity of the story the reality and the fiction the test of character strength the puzzles the different view points It completely absorbs me so I fall into the category of those who love him and this style of writing even if others think his writing isn t fantastic Doesn t mean I don t love the classic and richly written novels where it s the imagery and the words that win out tooI had never heard of Dan Brown in his early years I heard about the movie being made of the book and how it was coming out relatively soon I looked it up and saw it had the treasure hunter thrill appeal and decided to read the book before the movie could come out and warp my interpretation So glad I didIt s addicting Growing up Catholic I knew most of the religious detail but once it weaved it art literature history and philosophy I was just enad with the story Could it really be true Maybe I m related to Adam and Eve too Ok let s not get too crazyMagnificent story telling uick adventure Beautiful scenes and images Brown exhibit s intensely good control weaving back and forth between each of the plots sub plots and mini plots It s as realistic of a treasure hunt as one can get if you are not an adventurer archaeologist or exhibition junkieBut what took it to the next level for me was the amount of detail included for every component It s the intricate of the intricate relying on pure puzzles to move the story forward Each new puzzle creates its own spark of drama directing readers to challenge what they do and do not know about Jesus Mary Magdalene languages culture locations etcIt hits so many different waves of appeal that I felt it was at the top of its game And it probably only edged out Angels Demons because of how tight this story was Definitely a must read for the genre for Brown and before watching the movie adaption
