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 decipher 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 lightning-paced, intelligent thriller…utterly unpredictable right up to its stunning conclusion.

Amazing read!!! This was the book that made me go and obsessively read all of Dan Brown's other novels.

The Da Vinci Code is a true masterpiece and one of the best books I have read. The plot is suspenseful and exciting and Robert Langdon is a great character!

Go read this book I strongly recommend it.

5.0/5.0

I listened to The Davinci Code as a way to integrate audiobooks into my regular reading schedule. Although I thought the movie was good, I thought the book sounded more interesting and engaging. Even though the facts are skewed, it really makes a person think.

The story is fine.
One technical (!) problem was obviously caused by an incompetent, disorganized, lazy, irresponsible person who wrote mismatched (internal) CD titles, wrong chapter numbers and titles on 4 of the 5 CDs.

Good read but silly book. I read it all to see how it ended but in the end, I was left unfulfilled. It reminded me of National Treasure in that it starts out with an interesting premise and then one silly clue leads to another to another.
