Provides A Dangerous, DECEPTIVE Twist On Bible Prophecy and Bible Scripture Apr 5, 2008
If only NO stars were an option.....
Out of desperation, people want to seek the truth about Christianity because of the chaos happening throughout this world for almost the past twenty years. THIS IS A FICTION NOVEL, therefore it is NOT TRUE!!!!!! Just because this "man" created this book does not make it true, especially when there's NO PROOF of his gnostic claims.
For anybody who wants CLARITY on Christianity, stop looking for sources OUTSIDE OF the Holy Bible. Stop wasting money on books like the "Da Vinci Code" AND PRAY TO GOD FOR CLARITY! THEN PICK UP YOUR HOLY BIBLE AND SEEK A STRONG PASTOR WHO WILL GIVE YOU GUIDANCE FOR ANYTHING YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND! Stop wasting time reading a book like this and read your Holy Bible. Books like this were created to deceive the masses, and it seems to be working, unfortunately.
Dan, your book is FALSE, SO DON'T PRINT "FACT" AS THE FIRST WORD IN YOUR BOOK AND THEN PAWN IT OFF ON MILLIONS OF PEOPLE FOR PROFIT.
By the way.....the HOLY BIBLE IS, and will ALWAYS BE the best selling book of ALL TIMES, and obviously you need to read yours more often.

The book was not for me, but the person who received it was very pleased.
Cultural literacy thriller May 22, 2006
This book starts out with lots of superfluous description of people and places that never ties up or is relevant to the tale. The story takes quite a bit of time to get off the ground. The story line is textbook predictable. You know who the bad guy(s) are before they are introduced. As they say in the trade "it is the last person you would suspect."
Now for the positives. After a slow start the action finally starts to move. If you think it has holes that you could fly a jet through, maybe but if it did not you would have no story. One thing people enjoy in books is things they already know about. With Tony Hillerman it is Navaho culture. With Stephen King it is spookiness based on standard premises. This book also bases its suspense on existing conspiracies weaving current events into age-old mysteries.
No "Earth Shattering" News May 17, 2006
As a murder mystery with a complex plot, I read the book from cover to cover between shifts and even on shift at work. I always wanted to know what happened next.
The various clues given to Sophie and Langdon were only an iota more complex than a Hardy Boys mystery. I found myself shouting at the book for at least two of the clues (even without having to visit Westminster Abbey and see Newton's tomb). After having figured out the ancient word for wisdom and using Atbash with the Hebrew language, how can anyone miss the Newton clue?
The interesting takes on the Last Supper are not news to me, altough I had forgotten about the hand with the knife. Having never connected the legendary chalice with the painting, that was no surprise, either. LDV wasn't around when the supper happened, and it is his rendition of the scene. The theory of Mary M. being the wife of Jesus is hardly the Holy Grail. At least one very large group of people on earth already have the belief that Jesus married and had children. I am one of those. So when the Grail was revealed, it was a ho-hum revelation to me.
I have only read the book once, and I have to go back to read it again (or the parts that I must have overlooked). I think there is at least one very loose end. At one point Fache was ready to wax Langdon as the killer and relentlessly tracks the fugitives. He has a connection with the Opus Dei, and we start to suspect he has alterior motives. When he finally comes face to face with the fugitives, he is overly nice to them and all is forgiven.
It's a good light read, and I had put off reading it because I heard it made the catholic church upset. I am not catholic, but I don't agree with sect bashing. In the end, the book is entirely fiction and any offense taken by any sect is unfounded. The theories of the "cover up" were laughable in my mind and added no great suspense or value to the murder mystery.
Yes, read it, just because of the interesting historical facts laced with theories.
A FASCINATING AND INTRICATELY PLOTTED THRILLER... Jan 28, 2006
For a while I resisted reading this book, thinking that it could not possibly be as good as its hype. Well, I was wrong. This is simply one terrific book that will keep the reader riveted to its pages until the very last one is turned. It is a very well-written, intricately plotted thriller in which a great number of esoteric historical facts and interesting theories of a religious nature are woven. Those who read it should, first and foremost, keep in mind that this book is simply a work of fiction.
All hell breaks loose when Jacques Sauniere, the elderly and revered curator of the Louvre, is murdered inside the museum. The crime scene and the body itself are laden with symbols and cryptic messages pointing to renowned Harvard symbologist, Robert Langdon. He is invited to the crime scene by the wily Captain Bezu Fache, of the Central Directorate Judicial Police, the French equivalent of our Federal Bureau of Investigation, ostensibly to assist the police. Little does Langdon know that he is, in fact, the prime suspect.
When he meets police cryptologist, Sophie Neveu, they join forces. They are then led on a merry chase by a series of riddles and ciphers that are ground in a historical context. They are always just one step of the French police, who seem determined to charge Langdon with the murder of Jacques Sauniere. During their voyage of discovery, Langdon and Sophie come across a secret society, the Priory of Sion, that has a startling list of former members, which list includes Leonardo Da Vinci, as well as the late Jacques Sauniere. There is also some interesting historical detail about the ancient Knights Templar, as well as Opus Dei, a conservative religious organization currently in existence.
Langdon and Sophie peel back layers of historical clues that point to a secret of such magnitude that some would kill for it. As Langdon and Sophie surreptitiously travel from France to England and seem to be headed closer to the heart of the mystery that they are trying to unravel, an unknown nemesis is closer to them than they would dare imagine. This unknown adversary is marshaling resources in order to obtain the long hidden secret that Langdon and Sophie appear to be on the brink of discovering. It is one that has the potential to have earth shattering implications.
This is a fast-paced, plot driven, rather than character driven, thriller. It hurls itself into the reader's consciousness at break-neck speed, and before the reader realizes it, the book holds the reader in its thrall: hook, line, and sinker. For those readers who love historical detail and unusual facts and coincidences, this is definitely a fascinating book that will hold their interest. It is a page-turning thriller in which nearly every chapter leaves the reader on the brink of a precipice. The book is written in clear, effortless prose, which makes the most esoteric historical details surprisingly easy to understand. Simple in its presentation but intricate in its plotting, it is no surprise that this book has become a runaway, international bestseller. Bravo!
