The DaVinci Code by Dan Brown

Books have been an important part of history, well some facets of history itself begin with books or written records. Literature is very important to me and I have a teacher to thank for that… but that is a whole other post.

The DaVinci Code is a book that was recomended by a coworker, besides I had been hearing a lot about the book in the news and such so it was a book I really wanted to read.

At first I was somewhat taken back by the subject, should I be offended as a Catholic or a Christian? but then I thought, my whole life I have liked things that are thought provoking. Also I needed to remember that even thought there are tons of factual things on the book it is still just fiction.

I do have to say that by the end I loved the book, It is not only a very good read but it also has a lot of message within it. I say pick it up, read it and let me know what your take on it is.

  4. It’s historical fiction so some of the characters and societies are true but you have to know your history to know what’s a lie and what’s not.

  5. Angels and Demons is better of Brown’s recent novels, but not of critical acclaim that it deserves, wheras the DaVinci code somehow has remianed on the the best sellers list, while being a predictable tale with the final 1/4 of the book going nowhere. as the plot had been well and truely uncovered, regretably, by half distance leaving the reader with the painful job of finishing off the novel, somelike in agony like being forced to take cough syrup, but with the remainder of TDVC, i dont even know if it was good for me, i doubt it!!

  6. A book by feminists, for feminists…. totally crap. What’s wrong with the author?

  7. I am reading the DaVinci Code and as I am reading I could not resist seeing the actual paintings he mentioned. Unfortunately for me a flight to the Louvre was not possible, so I did the next best thing. I found the image online through this site http://www.artxchangenetwork.com and took a look at the paintings the DaVinci Code is referencing. Adoration of the Magi, Madonna of the Rocks, The Last Supper, Virgin of the Rocks and last but not least The Last Supper.

    I can not believe my eyes….

  8. I just got back from the world premiere of The Da Vinci Code in Hong Kong. You see the folks in Cannes are just now seeing the movie. It was a gala event set up by Carnet who created the Da Vinci Code Jewels, which play a central role in the movie.
