Over hyped? Yes! But still a great read!

by Jason on 4/21/2006

I am very conflicted about the book, mainly because Dan Brown uses a theory that has been proven false by reputable historians, and holds this theory up as truth. The idea that this underlying theory is true gives the book much of its gravitas that has elevated it to its best-selling status. That being said this is still a well written thriller that hooks you from the beginning and keeps you turning pages! And in spite of the false premise there is still plenty of history and classical art and architecture to keep it all interesting. My recommendation is read the book, but try and find a used copy--Dan Brown already has enough Money! If you like archeological based thrillers check out "Tourist in the Yucatan" a Da Vinci Code for the Americas!

Product Overview

From the Publisher:
While 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.
