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.

    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.

    Overall, it's an OK book. I had a problem with the CD skipping a couple of chapters but I'm not sure if that would have made a difference in my review. The narrator wasn't that great, but I'm new to audio books. I'm sure I'll get used to it.
