The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown
The Da Vinci Code

chizbitz, May 12, 2009

WOW! I baught this book a couple of years ago but it sat on my bookshelf until it was advertised that the film was going to be shown on TV and I dropped everything and read it in 2 days finishing it one hour before the film started. The first few chapters were hard going purely because of the way it is written but soon got into it and couldn't put it down, Dan Brown wrote it in such a way that you HAD to keep reading as he left you wondering hat happens next. I have never been what you would call religious more spiritual, although I have an open mind nor have I ever been particularly passionate about anything inparticular but OMG I was rivitted to the book and learnt about many things that I had never heard of. Nothing has ever peaked my interest as much as the background to this story and I am left wanting more, more knowledge more intrigued than ever before and I am chomping at the bit to research the book and its background and discuss it with anyone that will listen. Read it you will not be dissapointed.
