The DaVinci Code
BlurbWhile in Paris on business, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon receives an urgent late-night phone call: the elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum. Near the body, police have found a baffling cipher. While working to solve the enigmatic riddle, Langdon is stunned to discover it leads to a trail of clues hidden in the works of Da Vinci -- clues visible for all to see -- yet ingeniously disguised by the painter. Langdon 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 deipher the labyrinthine puzzle in time, the Priory's ancient secret -- and an explosive historical truth -- will be lost forever. THE DA VINCI CODE heralds the arrival of a new breed of lightening-paced, intelligent thriller…utterly unpredictable right up to its stunning conclusion.

Envolvente e intrigante.
An incredible boom about symbology, religion and mystery. Amazing.
Gets more interesting as you go on flipping its pages!
EXCELENT FOR VACATIONS!
Leitura rápida quando não tiver mais nada para ler.
História interessante, mas o livro fica cansativo e é meio previsível.
Um pouco cansativo!
La vida es corta, lean algo serio.
the worst book I have ever read. I will never get those hours back...
It's a fun read, but in all seriousness, you should not look to it for a genuine historical source. You know a book isn't that credible if Wikipedia has a page devoted to its inaccuracies.
Spannend, aber nicht so gut wie Meteor und Illuminati.
Sehr spannende Story. Kann nicht aufhören weiterzulesen...
