4.0 out of 5 stars Great GREAT start, Disappointing endling, 1 big problem, 23 Mar. 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: The Da Vinci Code (Hardcover)
On the positive side, it was impossible to put the book down, from the opening scene through the 75% mark. It was so engrossing, it was difficult to even pause and think about all the codes and enigmas yourself. The action is fast paced, quick short chapters jumping around. An Excellent and exciting read.
Then things slow down, and they start not making sense. Regardless of all of the little nit-picking criticisms of inconsistencies, etc, I just can not overlook one major flaw. The last place the crytex would ever lead would be to Sophie's brother and grandmother. Sophie was definitely in danger, but the bloodline was not only because Sophie's brother was safe and nobody knew of his existence. So why leave a trail of codes to lead someone two them...even the risk of leading someone to them as a mistake. It makes not sense. If the goal was to have Sophie find her grandmother and brother...just about any other way makes more sense and is less dangerous. The twist at the end just creates too many problems.
