Book introduction:

The curator of The Louvre Museum, Paris was murdered inside Louvre and he left behind bizarre clues at his own murder scene. The Harvard Symbologist Robert Langdon who happened to be in Paris was called in late at night to assist in solving the murder. He was deeply puzzled why he was asked to assist.

A beautiful French Cryptologist, Sophie Neveu warned Robert that he was in great danger. As they slowly unfold the secret left behind by the curator, they realised all the clues lead to Da Vinci and a two-thousand year old secret society called The Priory of Sion that Da Vinci was once the grand master. Robert and Sophie were about to revealed a secret so big that it would rock the very foundation of the Church as we know it.

My review:

The Da Vinci code is an very interesting fiction piecing a lot of the historical facts together and turned into a conspircy theory. A conspircy so deep and important that the church would do anything to stop it from being revealed. True or not, it is your pick. It is a very intense story and once you start reading the book, you can't put it down until you have read the whole book! True or not, the book raised many many questions about the bible and its accuracy, and it will definitely raise your interest in Da Vinci, his work and the secret society Priory of Sion (Issac Newton, Victor Hugo were also once the grand master of the society).
