Hi guys, Victoria here! This week I’m going to be participating in a meme called Shelf Control, hosted by the lovely Bookshelf Fantasies. It’s all about those books we own, but haven’t got around to reading yet.
Unfortunately, I have way too many books I can use for this category… Don’t worry, I am getting around to reading them all! My pick this week is:
The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown
An ingenious code hidden in the works of Leonardo da Vinci. A desperate race through the cathedrals and castles of Europe. An astonishing truth concealed for centuries . . . unveiled at last.
While in Paris, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is awakened by a phone call in the dead of the night. The elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum, his body covered in baffling symbols. As Langdon and gifted French cryptologist Sophie Neveu sort through the bizarre riddles, they are stunned to discover a trail of clues hidden in the works of Leonardo da Vinci—clues visible for all to see and yet ingeniously disguised by the painter.
Even more startling, the late curator was involved in the Priory of Sion—a secret society whose members included Sir Isaac Newton, Victor Hugo, and Da Vinci—and he guarded a breathtaking historical secret. Unless Langdon and Neveu can decipher the labyrinthine puzzle—while avoiding the faceless adversary who shadows their every move—the explosive, ancient truth will be lost forever.
Where I got it: I think it was a present from my mum. She loves the book too, so really she bought it for her to re-read once I’m done
When I got it: Years and years ago. It’s at the bottom of the pile for a reason, guys!
Why I want to read it: I’ve seen the movie, and I loved it. And let’s be honest, the book is always better than the movie. Plus, it might be easier to make sense of. The movie got me a little confused
SO, do you any of you participate in this meme? I know your TBR’s must be out of control too… Have any of you read this book? What did you think?
