The Da Vinci Code has intrigued and thrilled millions of readers around the world. Now all the artwork, symbols, architecture, and historic locations, over 160 images, are beautifully compiled in this full-color collector's edition. A mind-bending 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 on business, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon receives an urgent late-night phone call. The elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum, a baffling cipher found near the body. As Langdon and a gifted French cryptologist, Sophie Neveu, sort through the bizarre riddles, they are stunned to discover a trail of clues hidden in the works of Da Vinci, clues visible for all to see and yet ingeniously disguised by the painter. The stakes are raised when Langdon uncovers a startling link: the late curator was involved in the Priory of Sion, an actual secret society whose members included Sir Isaac Newton, Botticelli, Victor Hugo, and Da Vinci, among others. Langdon suspects they are on the hunt for a breathtaking historical secret, one that has proven through the centuries to be as enlightening as it is dangerous. In a frantic race through Paris, and beyond, Langdon and Neveu find themselves matching wits with a faceless powerbroker who appears to anticipate their every move. Unless they can decipher the labyrinthine puzzle, the Priory's secret, and an explosive ancient truth, will be lost forever. Instantly catapulted to the top of the bestseller lists around the world, The Da Vinci Code is simultaneously lightning-paced, intelligent, and intricately layered with remarkable research and detail. From secrets embedded in the Mona Lisa and The Last Supper, to the symbols of ancient Egypt, to the architecture of landmarks such as the Louvre, Westminster Abbey, Rosslyn Chapel, and more, this fully illustrated collector's edition delivers the complete reading experience of Dan Brown's riveting novel, from the opening pages to the unpredictable and stunning conclusion.

Amazing read!!! This was the book that made me go and obsessively read all of Dan Brown's other novels.

The Da Vinci Code is a true masterpiece and one of the best books I have read. The plot is suspenseful and exciting and Robert Langdon is a great character!

Go read this book I strongly recommend it.

5.0/5.0

I listened to The Davinci Code as a way to integrate audiobooks into my regular reading schedule. Although I thought the movie was good, I thought the book sounded more interesting and engaging. Even though the facts are skewed, it really makes a person think.

The story is fine.
One technical (!) problem was obviously caused by an incompetent, disorganized, lazy, irresponsible person who wrote mismatched (internal) CD titles, wrong chapter numbers and titles on 4 of the 5 CDs.

Good read but silly book. I read it all to see how it ended but in the end, I was left unfulfilled. It reminded me of National Treasure in that it starts out with an interesting premise and then one silly clue leads to another to another.
