The Da Vinci Code

The Da Vinci CodeI finished reading “The Da Vinci Code” by Dan Brown last night. It is easily the best book I’ve ever read. I’m not a big reader, so that might not be saying much for me, but it has also been a hot item on best seller lists.

It only took me 4 days to read the book (compared to the one day that elapses from start to finish of the story), which is an amazing feat for me. I’ve never read a book so quickly in my life. Hell, I think I’ve taken longer than that to read some of the email messages I receive.

The chapters are really short (the longest was like 10 pages) in his book, which was a major factor in the time it took me to read it. Since I knew the next chapter would be short I was constantly telling myself that I would just read one more chapter and then get to bed. Going to bed would of course take many more chapters than just that one more. Another thing the short chapters helped to do was to keep 3 or 4 different events/places/situations going without getting lost. It was very easy to remember how everything was happening at once.

I couldn’t put the book down since I picked it up. The plot was amazing, especially when you throw in all of the history about Christianity, the bible, Leonardo Da Vinci, and the holy grail. I’ve always hated reading history books because they are so dull and boring, but learning history in a story like Dan Brown can write is like nothing I’ve ever read before. I plan to check out some of his other books or books written by other authors that are in a similar fashion.

I recommend this book to anyone and everyone. It really was that good. Definitely an A++ in my opinion.
