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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
I just finished reading this book, and I could not put it down.
Dan Brown has brought the ages-old mystery of Leonardo Da Vinci, The Holy Grail, and even Jesus Christ Himself into the mainstream with this awesome book.
Many novels are flawed, saddled with implausible plots, boring characters, and poor writing.
Awesome read. Very suspenseful. Brown writes great books that will make you think and keep you on the edge of your seat.Published 4 days ago by gwill

Just as I enjoyed Angels & Demons, I also enjoyed The Da Vinci Code. It was a quick read, but still followed Dan Brown's formula for a book. Read morePublished 18 days ago by Listful Booking
I had seen the movie, and rented the book from the library. I prefer the movie, but the book is good too. The Knights Templar plays a role in the plot.Published 19 days ago by Joseph Johnson
Brilliantly Written!! I don't believe in the Priory Legend. But the historical details and artwork explored were fascinating to say the least.Published 19 days ago by Nishanthe P.
