The Da Vinci Code
So, I finally broke down and read the worldwide sensational book, The Da Vinci Code, by Dan Brown. I cannot believe how much I loved this book. The movie follows the book so closely that I was able to go back to the movie and visualize what was happening in the book while I was reading it. The Da Vinci Code is the story of Harvard professor, Robert Langdon, who is awoken in the middle of the night as a suspect in a famous man's murder. He is soon launched into a full blown search for the Holy Grail. Along with cryptologist Sophie Neveu, they travel all over Europe solving riddles and codes alike, while also running from the police and the Church. This book is the perfect read for those who love danger, conspiracy, and the secret unknowns of religion and faith. I loved this book because of all of the questions it presents about religion and what it means to have faith in a world saturated in lies.
