While in Paris, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is awakened by a phone call in the dead of the night. The elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum, his body covered in baffling symbols. As Langdon and gifted French cryptologist Sophie Neveu sort through the bizarre riddles, they are stunned to discover a trail of clues hidden in the works of Leonardo da Vinci—clues visible for all to see and yet ingeniously disguised by the painter.

Even more startling, the late curator was involved in the Priory of Sion—a secret society whose members included Sir Isaac Newton, Victor Hugo, and Da Vinci—and he guarded a breathtaking historical secret. Unless Langdon and Neveu can decipher the labyrinthine puzzle—while avoiding the faceless adversary who shadows their every move—the explosive, ancient truth will be lost forever. 

Our Thoughts on the Book

The beginning seemed pretty dull to me but it did pick up pace and I found it pretty cool. It was very different from any other book I read.I actually read The Da Vinci Code a couple years ago. It was almost nostalgic to re-read it. Dan Brown is just talented with his words, need I say more?

I recently read Angels and Demons by Dan Brown and Robert Langdon is assisted by the deceased’s daughter while in the Da Vinci Code he’s accompanied by Sophie, the deceased’s granddaughter. I’m probably just overthinking it XD but Dan Brown seems to like this pattern of bringing a female from the victim’s side to help Langdon out. The action scenes in Da Vinci Code are amazing, I couldn’t put the book down. (well I couldn’t put my phone down)

I remember bringing these Dan Brown books, to my hostel two years ago, where the entire hostel books borrowed the books from me and read them, except me xD. And now that I have completed them, I feel bad for opening them for almost 2 years and not reading them. Okay, better late than never.

The plot opens with the bizarre murder of the Lourve Museum’s curator, and our protagonist Robert Langdon is being summoned by the French Police in order to help them to solve the confusion codes left behind the victim’s body. Later, Robert teams up with Sofie Neveu, a cryptologist to solve this mystery. Turns out the codes have some relation with the great Da Vinci’s work.

About the book, I don’t think it needs any kind of appreciation. The work is so much close to perfect. Narration and writing are so impactful, characters are going great, conspiracy is so spine-thrilling, and the best part is how every chapter ends on a cliffhanger! Moreover, the topics raised in this book are pretty controversial and surprisingly turn out to be true. The book is underrated and I really bad bout it :((

Although I am not part of the Fiction Book Club myself, I started the book last night, but I have watched the movie about a dozen times given how amazing it was – so I have a thorough understanding of the concept and core! I highly recommend watching the movie – it’s a class Tom Hanks that you wouldn’t regret!

I also agree with you Nikhita, that’s a unique trend in Brown’s books to bring in a strong female protagonist to help Langdon. It is consistent throughout all his Langdon book series, and one of them even has a twist regarding the female protagonist. Another trend would be the inclusion of controversial themes and conspiracy theories which really get you hooked on to learn even more about them! Additionally, all the books are set in Europe and the way he describes certain details regarding touristic/non-touristic attractions are ones you wouldn’t find in any travel guide!
