SUMMARY• The Da Vinci Code is a 2003 mystery-detective novel written by Dan Brown.• It follows symbologist Robert Langdon and Sophie Neveu as they investigate a murder in Pariss Louvre Museum and discover a battle between the Priory of Sion and Opus Dei over the possibility of Jesus having been married to Mary Magdalene.• The title of the novel refers to, among other things, the fact that the murder victim is found in the Grand Gallery of the Louvre, naked and posed like Leonardo da Vincis famous drawing, the Vitruvian Man, with a cryptic message written beside his body and a pentacle drawn on his chest in his own blood.
• The novel is part of the exploration of alternative religious history, whose central plot point is that the Merovingian kings of France were descendants from the bloodline of Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene, ideas derived from Clive Princes The Templar Revelation and books by Margaret Starbird.• As the story progresses, Langdon finds himself on the run from the French police, along with Sophie Neveu, accused of murdering four public faces, and stealing a package from the Swiss bank.• The package which he has now, is actually a map- a kryptos, designed by Jacques Saunière, that leads to the hiding place of the holy grail.
• The rest of the story lies on how Robert and Sophie evade the French Police, and break the Da Vinci Code.
MY FAVORITE CHARACTERS• My all time favourite character is the one and only Robert Langdon.• Anybody would just love him because he is the specialist in symbols, he’s a professor in Harvard University.• He kind of deciphers any kind of cryptex or something like that.
MY OPINIONS• I just loved this book. It may even rewrite the Christian history.• It tells the story from different angles, shows the views and opinions of various characters to make us understand them better.• This feature of this book explains us the reason for specific actions of the characters.• I don’t think this book can be any better. As many say, it is a blockbuster perfection.
