Dan Brown's da vinci code is full of fascinating twists and turns. A must read for historical and religious scholars. I love the way he combines actual places and objects with his fantastic fiction writing. Although at some points in the book Dan Brown has taken some great leaps of faith in describing the grail and priory of sion. Never the less the book provides gripping story from beginning to end.
"Educational And entertaining"
This was gripping, and taught you a thing or two. Brilliantly read. Recommend highly to everyone. Go get it now.
"Awful French and other accents"
Rollicking story, fiction of course. The reading is good when the narrator uses his own voice. The accents of characters other than Robert Langdon are truly awful though.
"Fantastic mix of fact and fiction. Truly Amazing"
Absolutely, One of the best books I've ever listen too.
Robert Langdon of course with he great eye for detail and unmasking the mysteries.
The moment they describe the louvre and the modern pyramide. I actually love the detail and history behind this as it one of my favourite parts of the classic building.
"Really good story line"
The story line. Extremely gripping and you just want to know what happens next! And so much better than the movie! Seriously better. The little traps the authors set in the books can not be replicated on screen!
The relationship between the two main characters. No obvious romance involved, very realistic and natural. And the path they took to find out the truth. So many things happened in such a short period of time!
"I avoided the movie to get the full flavour"
However, although the story was interesting and I really didn't know the outcome until it occurred, I thought it was a little disappointing. I thought it was a good story, with an interesting cast of characters, some interesting plotting on the way.. The ending was all Hollywood, all happy no real enigmas. A story with this background deserved to end on an enigma.
Jeff did a good job of reading the story.
Thanks for the entertainment.
Another excellent listen from Dan Brown!!
Sir Leigh Tebin
Yes, the end was excellent
just get it now.
"Still a great story"
I have read this several times now - its a great story and read really well. Its a murder mystery that has huge diverse intrigue, with many interesting characters. A very western European story, with a token American thrown into the mix and includes ancient scandal. Dan Brown has a brilliant way of writing to reel in the reader/listener and convincing them that the story is truth. Great historical investigation - brilliant work. If you haven't read it, its an absolute must read.
A great book and value for money. I'm not a religious person, but it does give you a different perspective on things. I'm only half way through the book but I am enjoying it so far. The narrator does make me smile when he is speaking French. It reminds me off the policeman in Ello Ello. But one younger past the funny side of it, it's brilliantly written and I would reccomend to anyone that has no opinion on the subject.
"Engaging and steady paced"
A lot of audio books seem to move really quickly or really slowly. This is well paced and engaging along the way. I'm a fan of Dan Brown anyway so perhaps I'm a bit biased, but anyone who enjoys a good mystery will enjoy this one. Some surprising differences to the movie too!
