Book Blurb: 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.

Review: I actually loved this book. I wasn't baptized but attended a Christian school and went to church. Throughout my childhood, I had a lot of questions about faith and the church. Reading this book brought up those questions again.

You have to be open-minded and don't forget that this is fiction. Can't believe the sh*t storm it got lol 😆. I loved the twists and it is exciting. I have a soft spot for treasure hunts, solving riddles, puzzles and thinking beyond the obvious. This book gave it all. I actually liked the questions and made me think about how I felt about certain things. The best thing is that it will be different for anyone who reads it. Your own experiences, life struggles, faith or questions you might have about it.

I love Dan Brown his style, complexity and details in the story. Guess you love it or hate it.
