Throwback Thursdays 7/10/2014 The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown
Throwback Thursdays is where I talk about one best seller released 10 years ago.
This week for Throwback Thursdays we have The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown.
I read this book several times and enjoyed it. Leave your thoughts on the book in the comments.
An ingenious code hidden in the works of Leonardo da Vinci. A desperate race through the cathedrals and castles of Europe. An astonishing truth concealed for centuries . . . unveiled at last.
While in Paris, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is awakened by a phone call in the dead of the night. The elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum, his body covered in baffling symbols. As Langdon and gifted French cryptologist Sophie Neveu sort through the bizarre riddles, they are stunned to discover a trail of clues hidden in the works of Leonardo da Vinci—clues visible for all to see and yet ingeniously disguised by the painter.
Even more startling, the late curator was involved in the Priory of Sion—a secret society whose members included Sir Isaac Newton, Victor Hugo, and Da Vinci—and he guarded a breathtaking historical secret. Unless Langdon and Neveu can decipher the labyrinthine puzzle—while avoiding the faceless adversary who shadows their every move—the explosive, ancient truth will be lost forever.
This book has over 34 thousand reviews on Goodreads and over 5 thousand on Amazon. Ten years later it is still has a sale rating in the top 3-4 thousand range on Amazon. I think most people would agree this is a best seller still 10 years later.
