I Know the Secret of the Da Vinci Code..
The Da Vinici Code
The The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown is truly two books.
First it is a masterful mystery novel. Second it is a political book that has a very specific agenda.
The story is good and the author did a really good job with writing a book with lots of twists and turns that keeps the reader interested. It does get a little long at times and unfortunately I guessed the family secret early on but I still enjoyed it. It was intelligently written and had lots of interesting things to say.
With that said I do see Brown's agenda, it is to discredit the Catholic Church, and in turn takes down all Christian religions, in any and every way possible. I do understand there were/are many bad things the church has done...but I also am Catholic and this book has not changed that or my practices. But I knew understood that when I got into reading this book. So I will go with the fictional story Brown told and say it was a pretty good mystery. You have to read it yourself to find out where to find the Holy Grail.
