The Da Vinci Code

People who don't know me well, apart from being a fashion lover, I am a book worm too & lately I finished reading this book, The Da Vinci Code, by Dan Brown. A book full of suspense with strong paced thrilling mystery that brings together The Holy Grail, Mary Magdalene, Priory of sion, History of Church, Pagan symbolism, secrets behind the works of Leonardo Da Vinci & alot of conspiracies.
  As the name itself, the book is very much full of codes & puzzles that leads to unlocking the greatest secret & when you've finished reading the book , you yourself get a feeling, if the writer left some puzzles to another secret in the book too, something i totally felt. 
  The story takes action with the murder of the curator of the Louvre Museum. Robert Langdon, a Harvard symbologist along with Sophie Nevue( curator's cryptographer granddaughter ) must unravel the mystery that could shake the foundation of Christianity, by unlocking the hidden clues in the arts of Leonardo Da Vinci which leads them to Priory of Sion & The Holy Grail.
Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code, triggered alot of criticism & negative responses because of its story on history of church & it's very foundation  but it also became one of the best selling novels of all time.
 In the end, to me the book was one of the best page turners, I've read so far with fascinating concept which was  hard to put down. To many it would be an art of genius yet some might consider it as nothing but crap. 

Well, that's it for now, hope you guys liked the post. Peace&Love .
