The Da Vinci Code
BlurbWith The Da Vinci Code, Dan Brown masterfully concocts an intelligent and lucid thriller that marries the gusto of an international murder mystery with a collection of fascinating esoteria culled from 2,000 years of Western history.
A murder in the silent after-hour halls of the Louvre museum reveals a sinister plot to uncover a secret that has been protected by a clandestine society since the days of Christ. The victim is a high-ranking agent of this ancient society who, in the moments before his death, manages to leave gruesome clues at the scene that only his granddaughter, noted cryptographer Sophie Neveu, and Robert Langdon, a famed symbologist, can untangle. The duo become both suspects and detectives searching for not only Neveu's grandfather's murderer but also the stunning secret of the ages he was charged to protect. Mere steps ahead of the authorities and the deadly competition, the mystery leads Neveu and Langdon on a breathless flight through France, England, and history itself. Brown (Angels and Demons) has created a page-turning thriller that also provides an amazing interpretation of Western history. Brown's hero and heroine embark on a lofty and intriguing exploration of some of Western culture's greatest mysteries--from the nature of the Mona Lisa's smile to the secret of the Holy Grail. Though some will quibble with the veracity of Brown's conjectures, therein lies the fun. The Da Vinci Code is an enthralling read that provides rich food for thought. --Jeremy Pugh

Segundo libro de la trilogía de Robert Langdon y este incluye aún más líos y secretos. Impresionante la forma en la que esta escrito este libro. Dan Brown es un gran autor.
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...
