The Da Vinci Code Kindle Fire by Dan Brown Click Here to Download the Book An ingenious code hidden in the works of Leonardo da Vinci. A desperate race through the cathedrals and castles of Europe. An astonishing truth concealed for centuries . . . unveiled at last. While in Paris, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is awakened by a phone call in the dead of the night. The elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum, his body covered in baffling symbols. As Langdon and gifted French cryptologist Sophie Neveu sort through the bizarre riddles, they are stunned to discover a trail of clues hidden in the works of Leonardo da Vinci—clues visible for all to see and yet ingeniously disguised by the painter. Even more startling, the late curator was involved in the Priory of Sion—a secret society whose members included Sir Isaac Newton, Victor Hugo, and Da Vinci—and he guarded a breathtaking historical secret. Unless Langdon and Neveu can decipher the labyrinthine puzzle—while avoiding the faceless adversary who shadows their every move—the explosive, ancient truth will be lost forever.
Reviews Robert Langdon is awoken in Paris, France. A man named Jaques Sauniereis brutally murdered. Langdon and Sophia Neveu go off on a journey to find the mystery of the holy Grail. They run into allies and foes. It is hard to tell which is your enemy and friend. Sophie also wants to find out her real history of her family. Langdon wants to help her with it too... I can connect this with any normal crime story. Because there is beginning, middle and end. Always finding out who did something, or who did the crime. Also, I can connect this to anyone who wants to find their past, and their history. This book is really about finding who you are, as well as finding the murderer. I would rate this book 5 stars, it was extremely well written and it was a page turner. It was also really juicy and exciting! But I didn't really like how every murder was over, Langdon always ends up having sex or having a intimate relationship with that person. That person is the young girl he is usually working with on cases. But instead of being the same girl, he does different ones. Which I object to. But overall, it was a exciting book.
I really really enjoyed this book, it was great. To be honest, it has never been a book I have fancied reading and avoided it, I thought it would be really complex and difficult to follow but it was just the opposite. I picked it up in a book swap, and read it in a couple of days - I struggled to put it down. I had plenty of action which kept me interested and wanting to know more, I loved the conspiracy theory idea, really interesting and a little bit more than the average thriller, where we are just tracking a killer. During the book, I googled quite a few of Da Vinci's paintings to help me picture them throughout, as the only one I have ever really seen is the Mona Lisa! I loved all of the hidden images and messages described in his paintings, I found this part fascinating! I would recommend this book, and will be reading the others in this series.
I was introduced to the books of author Dan Brown only three weeks ago, but have quickly absorbed all four of his published works. It is easy to see why some are comparing the work of Dan Brown and James BeauSeigneur (THE CHRIST CLONE TRILOGY). Both Brown and BeauSeigneur deal masterfully with the more mysterious features of religion, politics, and science. Both bring to light amazing bits of information, which they weave into the intricate patterns of their stories. Both are highly imaginative and write with a ring of authenticity that makes for a compelling read. While Brown compresses labyrinthine plots into brief time periods to provide page-turning suspense, BeauSeigneur trilogy is of epic proportion, covering several decades. While Brown applies the mysteries of history to the drama of "today," BeauSeigneur uses both history and prophecy (from perhaps a dozen major world religions) to transport the reader from the world of today, to the very dawning of a new age in a story reminiscent of the scope of Asimov's classic, FOUNDATION. One other
difference is that BeauSeigneur has taken the novel (pun intended and forgiveness is asked) approach of including footnotes in his books of fiction. By doing so, he all but eliminates the necessity of suspending disbelief. Few authors employ such strong factual grounding as to make footnotes useful, but I believe Brown's work (and his readers) would benefit from BeauSeigneur's innovation.
