The Da Vinci Code

When a friend of mine heard that I was going to Paris for a week he said I have to read The Da Vinci Code. He said I would regret going to the Louvre without reading this novel.

Okay, so I started reading Dan Brown’s controversial novel last Sunday. I couldn’t put it down and finished it before the end of the week. It’s an exciting read with a great mystery.

The theology and history in the novel are outrageous at times. My curiosity led me to delve a little deeper into things like the Priory of Sion, Les Dossier Secrets, Opus Dei and corporal mortification.

For me, one of the best things about reading The Da Vinci Code, is that I can’t wait to get to the Louvre and experience some of the incredible art that is there. I won’t be lining up to see the Mona Lisa or take any Da Vinci Code tours—too cheesy and a waste of time. There is just too much to see.

If you’ve read The Da Vinci Code you may want to check out the FAQs on Dan Brown’s website. You can also look forward to The Da Vinci Code (2006) to be directed by Ron Howard and starring Tom Hanks (Langdon), Jean Reno (Fache) and Audrey Tautou (Sophie).
