About the Book:
The Da Vinci Code is a mystery-detective novel. It follows symbologist Robert Langdon and cryptologist Sophie Neveu after a murder in the Louvre Museum in Paris, when they become involved in a battle between the Priory of Sion and Opus Dei over the possibility of Jesus Christ having been a companion to Mary Magdalene. The title of the novel refers to the finding of the first murder victim in the Grand Gallery of the Louvre, naked and posed similar to Leonardo da Vinci's famous drawing, the Vitruvian Man, with a cryptic message written beside his body and a pentacle drawn on his chest in his own blood.
Unless Langdon and Neveu can decipher the labyrinthine code and quickly assemble the pieces of the puzzle, a stunning historical truth will be lost forever.
My Review of the Book:
This book being one of the author's best sellers' is a must read. The suspense, one is put through in the book is so amazing that a reader can easily get drowned in the whole time. An exhilaratingly brainy thriller with incredible thoughts and words. I would rate this book 4.5/5. The book can be described as both fascinating and fun.
