    Description

    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, a baffling cipher found near the body. As Langdon and gifted French cryptologist, Sophie Neveu, sort through the bizarre riddle, they are stunned to discover a trail of clues hidden in the works of Da Vinci - clues visible for all to see and yet ingeniously disguised by the painter.

    The stakes are raised when Langdon uncovers a startling link: 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. Langdon suspects they are on the hunt for a breathtaking historical secret, one that has proven through the centuries to be as enlightening as it is dangerous. In a frantic race through Paris, and beyond, Langdon and Neveu find themselves matching wits with a faceless powerbroker who appears to anticipate their every move. Unless they can decipher the labyrinthine puzzle, the Priory's secret - and an explosive ancient truth - will be lost forever.

    "Brown solidifies his reputation as one of the most skilled thriller writers on the planet with his best book yet, a compelling blend of history and page-turning suspense." ( Library Journal)
    "Many notches above the intelligent thriller; this is pure genius." (Nelson DeMille, Lion's Game)
    "In this gleefully erudite suspense novel, Mr. Brown takes the format...to blockbuster perfection." ( The New York Times)

    A Bestseller? A Travesty.

    This doesn't deserve any stars. Being a writer myself, I can only surmise that after reading this, and then suffering through the listening to it as an audio book just to make sure I wasn't being unfair, that Dan Brown must have a huge following of fans. It reads like a first novel, and I am surprised that so many people find it "enthralling". The dialogue is horrendous, the narrative is pedestrian, and the writing overall seems remarkably amateurish for a celebrated novelist. It reads like a book he wrote years ago, hid in a closet, got well known, then brought it out and dusted it off to present it to his agent and publisher. I wrote better than this when I was in the 3rd grade. His prediliction to repeat sentences and phrases over and over again is annoying, as if the reader is mentally challenged and didn't get it the first time. It is an insult to a reader to "write down" to your audience. It just goes to show that perserverance pays off in the publishing world. If any other writer had tried to peddle this manuscript, they would have racked up truckloads of rejection slips, and been told to take elementary writing classes, in addition to "get an imagination". This writing is almost as bad as Danielle Steele, another publishing miracle. Add to the fact that the narrator does a pretty horrendous french accent, I was aghast. It is on the best seller list, so of course audible is going to offer it, but honestly, I am sorry I wasted a book credit on this sophomoric drivel. It stinks.

    Extraordinary!

    Brown weaves the legends of the Church into a wonderful web that will keep you listening until it's finally unraveled. Brown clearly knows his stuff and the listener will find his story informative and provacative as well as enjoyable. The only reason I held back one star was that as he unfolds the mystery, Brown makes sure to go back and connect all the dots for the reader (listener), not trusting that his narrative is sufficiently strong, which it certainly is, that the the reader can make the connections her or himself. As for the narration, the strained accents and melodrama of the narrator can take some getting used to, but the story is so powerful that soon any awareness of the narration is left behind. A highly recommended choice!

    Adjust Your Perspective...

    It's important for readers to understand, as many previous reviewers do not, that not all books are works of literature. Chances are that if you are purchasing a(n)(audio)book that appears on the New York Times Bestseller List, it has most of the characteristics that the Average Joe looks for in a book: entertaining, fast-paced, transparent, filled with action (as opposed to thought), and sex.

    Although "The Da Vinci Code" features a prudish protagonist that precludes much of the latter, it does serve up an orgy of controversial historical facts that will prod all but the most closed-minded of readers to question their beliefs and research the presented details further. If the indignant one-star-reviewers wanted character development they should have bought some Saul Bellow or Philip Roth. The self-proclaimed writer who fumed, "I wrote better in the 3rd grade" should check her ego and realize that this effective piece of entertainment isn't trying to be deft with the English Language, just thought provoking and fun. I find it funny that those who thought the reading and the book itself was so unbearably horrendous wasted 15+ hours listening to the purported drivel.

    Ultimately, this book is great for those who have an interest in religious history and don't mind the cliched plotline and hackneyed characters roughed-in to deliver the truly interesting ideas on the roots of Christianity and the rise of patriarchal society.

    Surprised at the negative reviews...

    I've read some of the reviews of this book and find them surprising. I found the book entertaining, thought provoking, and somewhat educational. I agree with one reviewer that the people who have a problem with this book probably object more to the theme than its plot or how the story is constructed.

    I found the reader to be very good, too. I'm not going to get picky about how well someone does a foreign accent. If they get too authentic I probably won't be able to understand what they are saying! Hey, I'm trying to drive while I listen. I value clear diction and good pacing.

    In all, if you are looking for an entertaining book, listen to this one.

    Terrible

    Don't waste your time on this book! The only reason I gave it one star, is because audible won't let you give it none. Something they need to change, by the way. It is terrible on several different levels. It is poorly written. The dialogue made me laugh out loud several times. The book basically consists of one long historical lecture (I use the term historical lightly - it's all fiction), peppered intermittently with moments of suspense. The assertions Brown makes on Da Vinci's art are simply absurd. A small effort at research will prove that art historians support very few of his ideas. The deductive logic he uses to make his arguments is gaping with holes. I won't go into too many examples, because it would reveal plot elements, but he claims that the Catholic Church "decided" Eve would be responsbile for originial sin. Without getting into debates on what Genesis means, you only need to point out that Genesis is a part of the Old Testament, not the New, and therefore existed for thousands of years before the time of Christ. Whether you're hunting for an intellectually stimulating book or a history of Christianity, you waste your time in reading this.

    My Most Recommended Book to others

    I both read and listen to many books, and this was relatively captivating, although less captivating than Angels & Demons and Deception Point. This story is extremely well developed from an art history, religious history and character development point of view. It might be my favorite book of all time, but part of the reason is that he took the theme of the Holy Grail and put a twist on it which is totally new. Most devout Catholics I have recommended this to say it is pure drivel, but those more open-minded people, no matter their religion thought it was also one of the best books they have read. He follows a what-if type of scenario, includes suspense, a little bit of Agatha Christie plot and a religious plot which rivals Pauls Maier's "A Skeleton in God's Closet." For those who are a little skeptical, I am NOT normally a relious book reader, merely picked this up because my daughter was headed for a year of college in Paris and another person recommended this to me. I have since read Dan Brown's other three books. He's another Robert Ludlum, Clive Cussler and Tom Clancy ... another mystery of where they have the time to do the research and keep it almost beleivable and very possibly close to what history should have been written to.

    Unabridged version is Wonderful

    I listened to the abridged version first (it was available much earlier). Even if you listened to that one, GET THIS UNABRIDGED VERSION. Paul Michael is a great narrator (his characterizations and accents are perfect) and the details they cut out of the abridged version were critical to the tightly woven tapestry of the story. A fun ride with lots of interesting historical and regional detail. Don't miss it.

    Incredible

    Having read some reviews, and encouraged by the fact that this book is a best seller, I eagerly purchased the unabridged audio version of "The Da Vinci Code'. I am a great fan of many genres of writing, and the audio product allows me to 'read' when normal reading is impossible.
    I love a good story, a deep dark impenetrable mystery; the hero, the heroine, the antihero; I love the mirthful laugh, the tear jerking tragedy, the jolting twists, the heart pounding tension, and the satisfying ending as much as anyone. I love the entire journey.
    However, 'The Da Vinci Code' inexcusably, and often, preaches outside of the bounds of reasonable fiction and imprisons the listener inside a bizarre conspiracy theorists paradise. I felt as if I had stumbled upon some sort of coven, chanting at midnight, in preparation of a virgin sacrifice. I kept looking for a way out.
    All for a good story, you say? You would be surprised to discover that many people believe almost anything presented within a wrapper of large scale design and production - as is this book. It is the 'facts' that concern me. The authors freedom in his interpretation of people and events in history are reminiscent of revisionist thought rampant eveywhere. There are millions who will be barraged to this conjecture without the means or motivation to search any of it out and discover the truth. Character assasination comes to mind here. And truth becomes relative at best.
    What did I like about this book? When it quit telling me its version of the past, and got about the business of telling a story. Unfortunately, there were too many departures from its primary purpose for my tastes. And too often did it become like fingernails running across a chalkboard.

    excellent

    I thought this was an excellent read or listen. A lot of well researched information, enough to really piss off Catholics. And that is the whole point. I went to a Catholic college and took a lot of theology courses (an art major), several with some really good teachers. (Others very boring and predictible). Everything I heard in the Da Vinci Code rung true to me and really set all I previously learned in perspective. Along with the informative story line was a well written and thought out mystery. I saw no problems with the plot at all, I suspect that the reviewer who had a problem with the plot really had a problem with the theme. I have run into several people who had strong reactions to the story and found out that they were affronted with the anti-catholic theme. If they could just go back and change history............

    So Dumbed Down It Hurts

    This book has go to be the biggest insult to a reader's intelligence in years. Don't believe the hype. If you aren't comatose, you'll easily see each "revelation" coming long before the author drops it on you as if revealing something extraordinary. Brown even has a character (Sophie) whose main literary purpose appears to be repeating anything important said by other characters just in case the reader isn't paying attention.

    If you like the idea of this book, do yourself a favor and read Umberto Eco's The Name of the Rose instead. It's vastly superior.

    Gute Geschichte spannend vorgelesen

    Keine unspannende Story und typisch Dan Brown - sofern man das bei der geringen Zahl der von ihm veröffentlichter Bücher überhaupt sagen kann. Eine Art Fortsetzung seines Illuminati Romans mit ähnlichem Schema: Professor Robert Langdon trifft auf junge, intelligente Protagonistin und es gilt, mit Hilfe der Ikonographie Rätsel um einen Geheimbund herum zu lösen...
    Meiner Meinung nach wie immer ein wenig oberflächlich - ein Beispiel dafür sind u.a. die guten Einfälle seiner Charaktere in brenzligen Situationen. Trotzdem auf jeden Fall spannend zu verfolgen, manchmal aber ein wenig vorhersehbar....
    Den letzten Punkt gibt es von mir - wie so oft - für die brilliante Lesung!

    Ganz einfach: wow!

    In wenigen Worten: die spannendste Geschichte, die ich je gelesen, gehört oder gesehen habe.

    Und, da möchte ich einer anderen Rezension hier wiedersprechen, für mich auf jeden Fall "besser" als Angels and Demons oder Deception Point. Erzählerisch besser. Stringenter. Gereifter. Ohne diese kurzen Stirnrunzelstellen, die die (ansonsten ebenfalls phänomenal spannenden) früheren Werke Dan Browns gelegentlich kennzeichnen. Und auch nicht ganz so übereilt zu ende gebracht. Nur ein bisschen. Übereilt, meine ich.

    Auf jeden Fall: ein Riesenhörvergnügen. Ganz besonders wegen der sensationell lebendigen und vielschichtigen Lesung.

    Es ist mir ein vollkommenes Rätsel, wie man diesen durchdachten und wohlkomponierten Titel in einer anderen Ausgabe auf nicht mal ein Drittel der Hörzeit einkürzen konnte. Ich hätte noch tagelang weiterhören können und wollen.

    Super Buch und Story

    Bekannt gute Story, sehr spannend!
    Sprecher eher amerikanisch angehaucht, zu Anfang ungewöhnlich. Vor allem fehlende Pausen vor Kapitelwechsel sind störend: Buchkapitel nicht identisch mit Audibuchkapiteln; teilweise neues Chapter im selben Atemzug gelesen, wie der letzte Story-Satz.
    Aber: Unbedingt empfehlenswert!

    Dan müsste es besser können...

    Das Audiobuch selbst ist schön gemacht, jedoch finde ich die 'Angels and Demons' beiweitem besser! Der DaVinci Code ist etwas 'abgedreht' und nicht so spannend wie die Illuminaten!!!

    Exciting

    The way the story evolved kept excitement throughout the whole book. While I personally was not so much interested in the topic itself, I think the way the author researched it and referred to various sources was a fantastic base for a heated debate. The narrator also managed to incorporate the different characters persuasively.

    Geiles Buch

    Es fängt an wie eine notrmale Story, vielleicht nicht so Exciting. Doch nach ein paar Chapters danach kann man sehen, dass die Story echt gut ist. Das letzte Viertel des Buches habe ich am Stück gelesen, weil es so spannend war.
    Kann ich nur empfehlen.

    Rediculous

    The plot is boring and silly. Most of the conspiracy theories Brown uses to decorate the poor plot have been proven wrong years before the book was written. The rest of them are so obviously wrong that their mentioning qualifies as an insult to the readers intelligence.
