The Da Vinci Code

Unabridged / Go to Abridged Audiobook

Written By: Dan Brown

Narrated By: Paul Michael

Publisher: Random House (Audio)

Duration: 17 hours 6 minutes


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.

    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 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.

    I am happy I listened to Angels and Demons first. This book makes references to that and it was good as not to be lost. A good book that once it got started did not have many stopping points so it went very quickly.

    This Story is sadly lacking. It was a mediocre murder mystery dressed up in a controversial conspiracy that is 1700 years old ad done with. Though I do have to give him credit for the clues they were well thought out and intriguing.

    I really enjoyed this book. I was hesitant on renting it because I had seen the movie several times, but I am glad that I did. The book has a lot more details than the movie.

    This was a good one to keep your attention. Disc trouble on several of the later disks.
