The Da Vinci Code is an international bestselling novel by the famous author Dan Brown, who also published three other novels, including Digital Fortress (1998), Angels and Demon (2000) and Deception Point (2001). It was published in 2003, was translated into forty-four languages and was sold 60.5 million copies throughout the world.
The Da Vinci Code is about a murder of Louvre Museum curator named Jacques Saunière who was killed by a mysterious and religious man. As the story goes on, the innocent protagonist, Professor Robert Langdon, who came to Paris so as to give a lecture about symbolism, became the main suspect of the French police for the murder of the poor curator who had left a decrypted message before he died. Langdon had to find a way to prove he was innocent and with help from Sauniére’s granddaughter, Sophie, together they followed the clues left by the dead curator and these traces led them into a dark past secret many people died to possess, into the never-ending war between the followers of God and Goddess which had taken place since the time of Christ. And the killer wouldn’t stop until he found what he needed, for this secret, if revealed, would shook the very foundation of faith, and with this, the Christianity. The End of Days was near.
This novel is really a master. It was neatly written, every plot fitted into each other without any flaws, and it was no doubt a perfect book. I don’t know about the others’ opinions about this novel, but for me, it was one of the best of the best books I’ve ever read in my lifetime. In the year 2006, a film adapted from this masterpiece was made and earned about 224 US dollars worldwide. Also, in this year, 2008, Dan Brown is working on a new novel, The Solomon Key, which is going to be the third book with Robert Langdon as the protagonist with the first adventure of him in Angels and Demons and the second one to be in The Da Vinci Code. I hope you folks like reading this book as well.
A.I. (Addition Information) In Phnom Penh, Cambodia, you can find this book in some libraries along Monivong Blvd. such as IBC, Peace Book center and along the riverside in D’s Shop three blocks away north of the Royal Palace and another shop near Unalorm pagoda. If you’re too lazy to read the book (592 pages), instead you can purchase the DVD titled “The Da Vinci Code”. However, reading the book is recommended, for the movie is a little different from the book and for some people, they would find the film difficult to understand. Besides, if you require an e-book, you can send a request e-mail to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I’ll gladly send it to you the instant I get your message.
