It’s about symbologist Robert Langdon and cryptologist Sophie Neveu, as they follow deliciously intricate and exciting riddles in Leonardo Da Vinci’s work to find out mind-blowing historical secrets. I love a bit of mystery, conspiracy fiction.
It’s quite old, by Dan Brown, published in 2003, and not necessarily the greatest thing you’ll ever read. However, while it might not stick with the reader, it’s a cover-to-cover-then-back-to-reread-the-prologue type read.
Sometimes, I think it’s really important to not be so preoccupied with something’s overarching literary value and just enjoy a book while it lasts. The Da Vinci Code is one of those page-turners.
