The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown


Book 2 of Robert Langdon Series

I started reading this book not because the reviews are good but because this was the most controversial book ever written (I guess?!) You see there are a lot of things mentioned in this book that will make someone believe that these are true. I just didn't like the historical lies in it and as I am a Catholic, i just don't want to recommend this to other people. Thought a review is really necessary for this book.

"While in Paris, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is awakened by a phone call in the dead of the night. The elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum, his body and the floor around him covered in baffling symbols. As Langdon and a gifted French cryptologist, Sophie Neveu, sort through the bizarre riddles, they are stunned to discover a trail of clues hidden in the works of Leonardo Da Vinci – clues visible for all to see and yet ingeniously disguised by the painter.Even more startling, the late curator was involved in the Priory of Sion – an actual secret society whose members included Sir Isaac Newton, Victor Hugo, and Da Vinci, among others – and he guarded a breathtaking historical secret. Unless Langdon and Neveu can decipher the labyrinthine puzzle – while avoiding the faceless adversary who shadows their every move – the explosive, ancient truth will be lost forever."
