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. This is a pretty formulaic page turner a fun uick read Written at about the level of the average Nancy Drew mystery it is best appreciated at that level As far as the content there are howlers on virtually every page starting with the hero who looks like Harrison Ford in Harris tweed and is a Professor of Religious Symbology at Harvard good work if you can find it You have to ignore very pulpy cheesy writing to enjoy this romantic thrillerIntended as a book that a dedicated reader could finish in a day or something you take to the beach and casually finish in a weekend The Da Vinci Code makes for a reasonable airline novel so much so that it is often a bit clunky in its desire to ensure that no intellectual effort on the reader s part will be reuired Here s a recurring example in this novel a bit of unfamiliar terminology say crux gemmata jeweled cross will will be explained on page N then on page N1 a character will finger his jeweled cross and explain Oh yes this is a crux gemmata I ve read dinner menus that were demanding on the reader My wife and I both read about a third of it in a day sharing the same copy and that s a full work day plus taking care of kids bedtime etc That s also a kind of virtue I guess it s fast and peppyAs far as history goes Dan Brown apparently thinks that most historians give credence to the hoary forgeries and frauds promoted in sensationalist best sellers like Holy Blood Holy Grail This author gets the best of both worlds simultaneously claiming that it s just fiction while introducing the novel with claims that the historical record contained within is fact That claim is ridiculous To pluck a random example he spends some time talking about the Council of Nicaea and incorrectly summarizes it as the origin of the doctrine of Christ s divinity by Constantine He ignores the Arian controversy out of which it arose which is like trying to explain the Treaty of Versailles without mentioning World War I He ignores the documented fact agreed upon even by the cheerleaders of the gnostics that he is sympathetic to that the earliest gnostic doctrines held that Christ was purely God and not really man the very reverse of the doctrine that serves as the linchpin of his novel s intellectual base such as it is This is a bad novel for weak or misinformed Christians but anyone familiar with history should spot the train wreck of Brown s ideas a mile offOh yes and in Brown s world Opus Dei has shadowy assassin monks in real life Opus Dei is not a monastic order there are no Opus Dei monks let alone trained assassins and the Catholic Church has been promulgating known lies as its central dogmas promotes violence throughout the world and has been retarding the progress of science and knowledge for 2 millennia Brown leaves the reader with the impression that this too is a matter of settled historical record Oh but then again it s just fiction Except when it s notIn general if you re looking for a heady thriller wrapped around Christian arcana I d recommend Umberto Eco s excellent The Name of the Rose not this dumbed down by the numbers novel

In time the Priory's ancient secret and an explosive historical truth will be lost foreverTHE DA VINCI CODE heralds the arrival of a new breed of lightning paced intelligent thrillerutterly unpredictable right up to its stunning conclusionBonus disc includes Dan Brown's Oct speech Symbols secrets science scripture beyond The Da Vinci code presented at the Univ of New Hampshire and an interview with Akiva Goldsman screenwriter of The Da Vinci Code.. Alternate history uchronias and indirect criticism of faith and ideology combine to one of the most successful thriller series of all times Everything was already on the table many authors had dealt with the different ideas Brown is mixing together and finding and recombining conspiracy theories isn t that complicated It s the mix of different topics that interest many people stirred together that make it entertaining for the ones who like art or thrillers for atheists and religious people for the ones interested in plot or characterization it s just difficult to find someone who would immediately say that shehe isn t interested in one of the plot vehicles It doesn t just relativizes general history but religious and political history in a way that makes it a prime example of the fact that history and holy texts are written by the winners Widening the range uestioning the status uo and making people skeptical regarding omniscience commandments and whatever is something of huge importance and Brown did than Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens combined and multiplied could have done in centuries by reaching so many people and making them think about the legitimation of any kind of beliefImagine many people would start writing fanfiction like that about different religious texts expanding universes with new and alternative prophets letting the whole thing collapse into a parody of itself within yearsI tend to euate religious economic and political science texts for the simple reason that as soon as there is one truth or in hard science formulas and euations the others or even the own one must the wrong The open criticism and sarcastic to profound interpretations of all those one hit wonders are made by sophisticated young people the less power all of those charlatanries can generate in their stupid uest towards the one and only variation of reality they want to establish Blasphemy in a view spoiler Why can t JC have a daughter what s your problem dudes It s so ridiculous if any prophet would be a woman or gosh a lesbian or even a gay male prophet they would of course completely freak out even hide spoiler
