Summary:

While in Paris on business, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon receives an urgent late-night phone call: the elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum. Near the body, police have found a baffling cipher. While working to solve the enigmatic riddle, Langdon is stunned to discover it leads to a trail of clues hidden in the works of Da Vinci -- clues visible for all to see -- yet ingeniously disguised by the painter.

Langdon 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 in time, the Priory's ancient secret -- and an explosive historical truth -- will be lost forever.

THE DA VINCI CODE heralds the arrival of a new breed of lightning-paced, intelligent thriller…utterly unpredictable right up to its stunning conclusion.

    Nothing special here. The Church and the media made a mountain out of a predictable molehill.

    I thought this would be a great listen given all of the hype it has gotten. Was I wrong. The writing is terrible and the voice actors are ridiculous. However, if you like listening to a guy with a fake chinese accent (Mr. Miagi wanna be) give life lessons to a guy who sounds much like a young James Stewart from "Its a wonderful life" then rent this piece of junk. What a waste of my life.

    I loved this book. The hardest part was to stop listening. I also enjoyed Angels and Demons, but it was not as well developed as Da Vinci,

    I originally read the hard copy when it came out, but wanted to listen to the audio book. I loved it.

    Before the movie (excellent!) I listened to the Audiobook. Extremely well done! He gets the Pagan stuff correct and corrects the Christian misinformation. I adore that so much. Christianity has so many problems and so much misinformation. I love when accurate facts are mixed with a great story. Dan delivers both!! My friends, family and I are huge fans and love True Religious history that Church has never delivered. I connect very well with what Dan is doing. Get the Truth out there, Dan, Go for it!! By the way, Origin is also very, very cool. But there is 1 component, one factor, that Dan seems to miss so far, will he nail it in his Next Book?? He strongly alludes to to it in Origin. Church doesn't like Truth to be Public. But we set ourselves free with it.

    I loved this book! I felt like I was on the quest with Robert and Sophie! The book was so much better than the movie and I love Tom Hanks. I recommend this book highly and I will be reading Angels

    I listened to TDC while commuting. I found myself staying in my car to listen even after arriving at work. It's as good as everyone has said. And, BTW, better than the movie.
