The Da Vinci code – hidden secret of the church

10.46 P.M Louvre Museum.
A monk of Opus Dei named Silas apprehends Jacques Saunière,
the museum’s curator, and demands to know where the Holy Grail is. After
Saunière tells him, Silas shoots him and leaves him to die. However,
Saunière had lied to Silas about the Grail’s location. Realizing that he
has only a few minutes to live and that he must pass on his important
secret, Saunière paints a pentacle on his stomach with his own blood, draws
a circle with his blood, and drags himself into the centre of the circle,
re-creating the position of Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man. He also leaves a
code, a line of numbers, and two lines of text on the ground in invisible
ink.
This book wonderful book, is written from Dan Browns own perspective.
I really think he wrote it in a way that you could understand everything,
But he also wrote it so that you had to think a lot.
He wrote it so good, you could think he was one of the characters, which he isn’t.
And that is why the book is so good; I’ll give you more details later.
To support my main idea I’m going to tell you a little something about the characters
That you follow through the story.
In the book we get to meet the mysterious
Robert Langdon who’s a Harvard professor in art history and expert in
symbolic. He’s a middle age American who’s in Paris for a short visit when he
suddenly get himself involved in a chase for one of the best hidden secrets
the world has ever known.
You also get to meet the cute and odd Sophie Neveu who’s a young cryptologist working for the French FBI.
And it turns out that the murdered Museum chief is in fact her grandfather that she
hasn’t spoken to for almost 20 years.
The strange outsider Silas who’s an albino who’s deeply religious and an active
Member of Opus Dei plays an important role in the book. And much of his bad behavior can be explained by his childhood and his life long experience of being a student for the bishop.
The cruel and scary Bishop, who’s a very religious man and he is also one of the leading characters in the catholic organization “Opus Dei”.
He’s also the one who showed Silas “the way”.
And off course the determent Police captain Fache who’s the head of the French correspondence for FBI. He takes up a wild chase for the suspects in the crime and there’s
nothing he won’t do to get them. For him it’s the way to retire
“gracefully” and to be remembered as a hero. To be remembered as the one
who caught the murder of one of the most beloved man of France.The environment is amazing! You really see the places in front of you while you read it.
The story is played out in very famous parts of Paris and England. All of
the mentioned places in the book are real and many Grail hunters have
through the history visited these places in their quest for the big
legendary treasure. Some people do still go to see Da Vinci’s painting to
find some sort of clue.
He has described the big Parisian museum, the Louver, very precisely. The
characters overwhelming feelings when they first enter this famous museum
are so well described that you can picture the entire museum in your head
almost as if you where there.

The message I don’t really know if others feel the same way, but to me the message of
this book seams to be that the quest is far much more fun then to actually
find out the secret. In the end that is all the book seams to be about. I
mean, through out this novel they run around from one place to another,
from one clue to another, until they reach their destination. To put it
simple, without really telling the ending, things aren’t always what they
seams to be. Perhaps what he meant by the ending was that love, peace and
harmony is what the Grail stands for. That it’s more of a symbol then an
actual artifact.

I wrote earlier that I was going to give you more details of why I liked to book so much.
For starters I absolutely loved this novel, It was exciting, and you felt like you were in all the positions the characters where in.
The conversation I liked the most was the one were Robert Langdon finds out from
Sophie Neveu that he is a suspect (chapter 11-13)
There is a lot of excitement and questions asked in that conversation, including the conversation between Robert Langdon and Police captain Fache.
The most negative thing/things that is in this book, is that the conversations can be a little longwinded. Dan Browns thoughts can sometimes be a little complicated, but I find that very special, not many writers can write like he does, and still remain the interest of the readers.
As I wrote before there was a lot of excitement in the book, sometimes to exiting for me.
But I loved it, and I strongly recommend it.
