This book was amazing and at every turn, something unexpected happened. By the end of the book, you have to learn to expect the unexpected. It was an amazing book and I had a lot of fun trying to figure out what they are searching for and where it is before Robert Langdon and Sophie Neveu. Overall this book was almost perfect. There were a few parts that you think that Dan Brown messed up on, but ended up tying into the story 200 pages later. If you don't pay attention to every detail you might
4.5 starsAlmost 20 years after it was published, I finally got around to reading The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown. Now I understand why it caused such a sensation, was made into a film, and spawned other novels. It’s a very involved tale, part art history, part religious theory, part murder mystery, and it covers a surprising amount of ground in a day’s time. I love learning while being entertained, and this book exposed to a lot of ideas that I’d never pondered before. It gave me a board view of
Freaking loved it <3 Now I want to read the original version too
‘What if Leonardo Da Vinci hid the truth and secrets of Christianity in his famous painting “The Last Supper?”' Through this “what if” question, Dan Brown was able to write a memorable, exhilarating, and inquisitive introduction, and as these qualities intertwined with his characters and dramaticthemes, the novel truly becomes a page turner.
Ah, well, what can I say, it's average. I loved the part where the author reveals that in the last supper, Jesus is sitting next to a woman. And that's it. That's the whole thing, right there. The book is such a tedious way to get around to it. The main characters are so confused. And the plot is so silly, it's just too silly to be any sillier. No, that's not true, but my point is... the author is way better at history and wild-crazy-idea-having than he is at writing.
A thrilling story with ingenious historical facts!!! A surreal amalgam of the details from the greatest artist (Leonardo Da Vinci), monuments and catholic history. And Story is embedded with treasure hunts related to fresco, Christianity, secret societies and encryption methods that will keep you hooked. The ending was just too calm, satisfying and thrilling at the same time!Best read ever!!!
Goodness gracious this book was amazing. I really like it and am glad to have read it. The plot twists are incredible!-m
read the original one years ago but still as amazing as the first time i read this!
This book had so complex story structure that my mind only wandered between the arcaneness of the pages. It haunts your thoughts to the core of your being and I'm loving this state of mind. And the plot twists?!!...I just can't.
I loved the adult fiction version of this story. The YA adaption did have differences. I can't wait to write my review.Full review here: https://agingerlyreview.wordpress.com...I loved Dan Brown’s original version of The Da Vinci Code so I was very excited when I found out the story was being released for Young Adults. I tore through this book in no time, but it had me a little confused because this felt so much like the Adult Ficiton story.Robert Langdon is the leading authority on religious sy...
The Da Vinci Code, by Dan Brown is a mystery. It has multiple mysteries which makes the plot more fun and exciting to read. The first mystery Robert Langdon and Sophie Neveu have to solve is who killed Jacques Saunière. The second mystery which takes up most of the book is the search for the Holy Grail.I greatly enjoyed the plot of this book. It was exciting and well written. I also enjoyed the characters. They were smart and worked well as a team. I also enjoyed the theme. Some themes for this
One of the worst books I've ever finished
It was awesome. Untill the end. Not as bad as the movie though.
I really enjoyed finally reading this book. It is one I have wanted to read for a while. The book is very well written - the author is clearly knowledgeable in the subject of art and culture entwined with religion and I feel like there was a lot of interesting detail contained. The story is well known - but there is a brotherhood protecting the secrets of the Holy Grail, and all 4 members who know of its location are killed in one night. One of the men whilst dying manages to leave a cryptic mes...
I took this book with me on a vacation to the Belgian Coast. Given how big it is I thought it would keep me busy for at least a week. How wrong I was... This novel absolutely knocked me off my socks and I finished it within a couple of days. Not many times have I enjoyed a book as much as I enjoyed The Da Vinci Code. This, to me, is the perfect mystery story. It is such a page turner and the plot is one of the smartest I ever read.Like many others, I found myself reading up on the theories prese...
The Da Vinci Code is a book I really did enjoy for the simple fact that it is a book that exemplifies mystery and code solving.This book was indeed extremely engrossing with the way Dan Brown demonstrated the character’s way of thinking. Dan Brown did an excellent job portraying the character’s thoughts and actions while successfully illustrating it throughout the text. Brown used detailing to its finest by narrating what the scene looked like so the reader can fluently comprehend what was happe...
The Da Vinci Code delves into the relationship between the Christian Church and the world of Paganism. The story itself is a mystery surrounding the murder of a French curator of the Louvre. Not only is it a grippingly beautiful story, but through Robert Langdon's hunt through information of secret societies, legendary tales, and truths of the origins of Jesus Christ, I have learned a vast amount of knolwedge about the history of the catholic church, famous paintings, influencial characters in h...
A pageturner, absolutely! (Finished it within two days), but .. how many impossible impossible situations do the main characters end up in and in how many miraculous miraculous ways they get away with it again and again? It remains fascinating, but it’s also getting a little bit hilarious.It’s written in a very interesting setting indeed like organisations as The Priory of Sion, Opus Dei, The Templars and the historical role of the Catholic Church (although i can’t judge the degree of fact and f...
So this is what a 5⭐️ book looks like🤩I'll give this book 5 stars and I would give it more if I can!I got hooked on from the first page. I loved how the chapters are short, and for the first 5 chapters it was like an introduction to all the characters (a chapter for each character), and this is something that I liked cause it made the reader so familiar with the characters so you don't feel lost. Dark academia. Not slow paced. I was in LOVE with all the plot twists OMG👏🏻I learned a lot about Leo...
The Da Vinci Code is one of those books that you wish you were a part of the story. There are so many mysteries and secrets that all seem to lead to another, and it pulls you in and doesn't let go. Although it is fictional, it seems so real and makes you want to believe all the things that happen in this book. This is truly a book that you don't want to put down until your eyes get too heavy to keep open. Before you watch the movie, read the book. It truly supports the claim that "the books are
It's been years since I read the original Da Vinci Code, so I am not sure about specific details and plot twists, but when I read the Young Adult adaptation, it seemed very similar to the adult version. I would have to read them side by side to be able to tell what was left out and what was modified. Having said that, the Young Adult adaptation is perfect for teens who like action, mystery, suspense, and quite a bit of art history thrown into the mix. Recommended for gr. 7-12.
Well to be honest , I didn't liked it that much.. I mean it was super slow to begin with and lacked the pace that angels and demons gave me... But somewhere between like page 300 or so... It went super crazy good.. From then I was like whoa! Now that's what I was talking about! Story line - intriguing Plot - a bit messy but amazing Writing - slow at start but at the end as always ( mind blown)
This book was life changing. To me, more than a book. A piece of art, a story, a new point of view on life. This book had the just perfect amount of everything you can want in a book and is more than appropriate for all ages. I got this book as a gift and did not realize that it was the “Adapted for YA Version” so now I want to read the original! From other reviews I have read they are very similar so I think regardless they will be life changing novels. Highly Recommend! 🔍
This book kept me engaged until the last word. There were twists all the way till the end and I absolutely loved the art history that was woven all throughout. Brown's descriptions of the brotherhood and the search for the truth were so thought-out and imaginative it was easy for me to picture the characters and understand how they were feeling in every situation. Highly recommend for anyone who loves suspense, adventure or puzzles.
good. very good. i love this book. if you read it, keep track of characters. that was my weekends with the book. i was able to binge read this book which rarely happens. it’s very good but can be confusing. i still have some questions that even goggle can’t answer. so who did kill sophie’s grandfather? is sophie the holy grail? did langdon ever end up talking about this again? i must watch the movie!!
That was so fun I loved all the riddles and the mystery. There was betrayals and oh my gosh did they sting. I didn’t feel that much chemistry between Sophie and Robert but I didn’t really mind it, good for them. I was kinda disappointed that the ending didn’t really explain what the grail was and I may just be dumb someone pls explain and that they never told people about the grail but that’s about it.
I can't really remember this one but I like symbols and I have actually read this book more than once. It is a good read but with reading so many of his books I mix some. I'd recommend this book to anyone who likes symbols and that likes to be on the edge of their seat. (I do not remember when I read this book. )
One of the biggest loads of unmitigated crap I have ever had the misfortune to waste my precious reading time with. After the spine was broken when I threw it against a concrete wall it ended up in the rubbish bin. The idea that a "Symbologist" had no idea that Da Vinci used mirror writing is completely incomprehensible.
This was the most complex and well-created book that I've ever read.The conspiracy about the Saint Grial and about the secret organization was written in such a real perspective that I still haven't got clear if it's based on a real event or not.After reading a Dan Brown book, I can understand why every parent has at least one of his books in their library.4/5
This book is a very interesting read. The plot is elaborately structured, and has a lot of basis in reality. There is a good amount of suspence throughout and a very surprising end. Couldn’t put the book down until the end.
