Dan Brown, The Da Vinci Code.
I recently read Dan Brown’s book “The Da Vinci Code”. The screen version of the book “The Da Vinci Code” I looked in 2006, in those days when he went out. This film made a great impression on me, but in the time when I was reading the book in my memory were remind only weak memories of the plot.
Therefore, reading the book “The Da Vinci Code” I learned again all the situations that happened to the characters. And after reading the book I immediately reviewed the film, and once again convinced that it is better to read the book than to watch the film.
It was very sad to watch how the filmmakers ruthlessly threw out very important parts of the book, and without them it becomes generally unclear what is being discussed in the film. And all the dialogues in the film lose their meaning. And of course the fact that the plot was slightly changed in the film also make me sad.
The publication of the book “The Da Vinci Code” and its filming were accompanied by a big scandal. In the book “The Da Vinci Code”, Dan Brown questions the divine origin of Christ. This question undermines the already undermined authority of the church. He describes the facts that actually take place, but are carefully hidden by the interested persons. And if you look at the cover of the book, you will see on it an inscription stating that all the facts described in the book are true. This is the only cover with a similar cover.
After the scandal is over, the author in the new books must change historical facts and adds fables to his books to make them look more like fairy tales. And now on his books it is written that all stories are fictitious and any coincidence with reality are not true.
Dan Brown’s book “The Da Vinci Code” is an absolute best seller, translated into many languages of the world and is still of interest to readers.
Of all the books I’ve read in my life, only a few I have been reading very fast and only few I do not want to re-read. “The Da Vinci Code” refers to those themes of books that I want to re-read again and again. I was so in a hurry to find out how the book would end, so I read it very quickly and probably missed some interesting and important moments.
In the book “The Da Vinci Code” Dan Brown is talking about the American professor Robert Langdon, who teaches at Harvard and studies symbolism. One day professor Langdon came to Paris to give a lecture on his topic, but he was involved in a dizzying story.
The police find the murdered caretaker of the Louvre, who was a very famous man in Paris. The police turn to Robert for help, because the caretaker was not just killed, strange symbols were found on his body, and even his death seems a rather strange event.
During the investigation it turns out that not everything is so simple, and that the strange signs on the body of the murdered сaretaker are much more serious than might appear at first glance. After all, we are talking about such a secret community, like the Priory of Zion.
Do you want to know what exactly is the Dan’s Brown question about the divine origin of Christ? And also, which kind of church secrets he wrote in the book? Do you want to know what kind of secret is stored in the famous fresco by Leonardo da Vinci “The Last Supper”?
About this and many other things you can read in the book written by Dan Brown “The Da Vinci Code”.
I wish you a pleasant reading!
