    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, a baffling cipher found near the body. As Langdon and gifted French cryptologist, Sophie Neveu, sort through the bizarre riddle, they are stunned to discover a trail of clues hidden in the works of Da Vinci, clues visible for all to see and yet ingeniously disguised by the painter.

    Alexandra says: "Incredibly entertaining"
    "An average story told very poorly."
    Overall

    Let's get to the positives: The narrator's voice was excellent. He did multiple characters and their multinational accents very well. He even nailed different types of british accents. Well done.

    The not so great: The story is pretty average in quality. Unfortunately it is told very poorly by Dan Brown. He over uses the device where he tells you "something happened" and then ends a chapter without telling you what (with assurance that you'll find out a few chapters later.) In a book of 100 chapters, where easily 50 of them end this way, it becomes very tedious.

    The books three main characters take turns becoming stupid so that the other two characters can explain something to the third suddenly stupid person. Clearly this could have been fixed by having a fourth "Alice in Wonderland" character that the other three explain things to.
