4.0 out of 5 stars Fast paced but predictable, 28 Mar. 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Da Vinci Code (Robert Langdon) (Paperback)
If I'd never read anything by Dan Brown before I would have been tempted to give this book 5 stars (despite his poetic licence when it comes to European geography and law). I did however read Angels and Demons first, and The Da Vinci Code follows the same pattern, making it a bit predictable at times.
I did enjoy the fast pace of the story and I found the subject matter incredibly interesting (enough to warrant hours of research on the Internet), but since it followed the same "recipe" as Angels and Demons it was obvious not only who the bad guys were, but also how it was going to end. I also have to admit to feeling that the neat and tidy ending was just a bit too far-fetched for me to swallow.
Nevertheless, it's a highly enjoyable book that, apart from entertaining you, makes you think about religion and your perception and acceptance of what you've been taught. From this point of view it's a masterpiece.
