After reading this book, I looked at "The Last Supper" with a more keen eye.
An entertaining and thought provoking book. Whether your Christian or not, it brings up some very glaring points about the history of Christianity.
Even if you don't need that kind of stuff, it's still a pretty good thriller.
This is the first book I have read by Dan Brown. It was excellent and the narrator was also excellent. I not only felt like I was reading a book but I learned a few things too.
Well...I listened to it...so i'll give it a star. The plot, as thin and unbelievable as it is, becomes silly by mid way through the book. Monty Python's rendition has more drama and suspence (and better accents). I suppose that any type of Catholic bashing will get you on the best sellers list these days. I REALLY can't understand how this one made it. And Dan Brown's historical prose...well, it reads much like a high school history project (which would get a C from me). I suggest you leave this one on the audible rack and seek elsewhere.
I like the Da Vinci Code. It kept you wanting to find out what was going to happen next. The narrarator was excellent. I did not, however, like the few cases of swear words and I think the author could have left them out and still conveyed his message. This book (audio) makes you think about some of the traditional beliefs we still have.
This was the best book I have heard on tape so far. I loved the story and thought Paul Michael was a wonderful narrator.
If you have a chance to listen to a book, this should be the one!
Do not miss this book! My friend is in a book club and told me to read/listen to this book. I was amazed. I was blown away. There is mystery, murder, twists and turns through out. Everything deals with symbology and double meanings. If you are a mystery lover, this is a must!!! I am pretty good, and I never NEVER even was close to who the was "it". WOW!!! I wish I could just start over and listen to the whole thing again. I'm jealous that you're going to get to hear it for the first time. Oh, by the way the reader is fantastic too. He does a great job with the accents and both male and female voices. It felt like a whole cast of characters. Go get this one!!!!
I am just getting started at listening to books on my iPod and I couldn't wait for car pool time, drives to the soccer field, a trip on an airplane -- all because of this book.
It drags a little here and there and you find yourself almost shouting at the characters -- ok to do in the car alone BTW-- when they don't get the clue right away -- but I think the author planned it that way. Thanks for opening up a new door for an old Mom. BTW - I liked the narrator very much.
