This was a pretty good book, in a pulp fiction kind of way but it was a bit too predictable and the characters were rather shallow and stereotypical: All the victims were women--all the women were victims, and the men were either psycopathic killers, cheating scumbags or emotionally stunted. I guess it would make a good movie for "Lifetime" TV
Don't waste your time with this one; read Brown's "Angels and Demons" instead: The story telling is tighter, the stakes are higher, the characters are better developed. In fact, in "DaVinci", it's assumed that we already know Robert Langdon. If I had not already read "Angels and Demons" I might not feel this way about "DaVinci" but I was very disappointed in how similar they are: Secret societies, pretty female sidekick, hulking henchmen, corrupt Cardinals. There is very little originality in "The DaVinci Code." I won't bother finishing it.
