Okay, so let me tell you first that I was not a reading person. It was only when I started college that I started reading avidly . Everytime you start reading, before hoping on to that boring newspaper you definately read a novel or a short story book .
Of the many novels that I have read hitherto my most favourite is the infamous “Da Vinci Code ” by Dan Brown. It is a mystery- detective novel .The book is about a secret that the Catholic church allegedly covered up which was related to Jesus Christ which was one of the biggest secrets in the history of this world . It is followed up by a murder mystery which takes place in the Louvre museum which the protagonists Robert Langdon and Sophie Noveau investigate .
The book is a sure shot mystery with something new happening everytime . While reading the book ,all through it I was curious to know as to what would happen next till I reached the very end . It’s so engaging that till the time you don’t finish reading it, you just can’t stay satisfied .
The book also found itself in a soup ,with lawsuits being filed but as they say , “even negative publicity is good publicity”.
Here is what the critics have to say :
“”It concisely conveys the kind of extreme enthusiasm with which this riddle-filled, code-breaking, exhilaratingly brainy thriller can be recommended. That word is wow. The author is Dan Brown (a name you will want to remember). In this gleefully erudite suspense novel, Mr. Brown takes the format he has been developing through three earlier novels and fine-tunes it to blockbuster perfection.” – Janet Maslin ,The New York Times
“This story has so many twists – all satisfying, most unexpected – that it would be a sin to reveal too much of the plot in advance. Let’s just say that if this novel doesn’t get your pulse racing, you need to check your meds.” -David Lazarus. San Fransisco Chronicle “Do not start me on ‘The Da Vinci Code’. A novel so bad that it gives bad novels a bad name – Salman Rushdie
PS: It’s an amazing book. A must read for all !
