DaVinci Code by Dan Brown

book 38:  DaVinci Code by Dan Brown

Well, I imagine a lot of the well-read people already know this book.  I am behind the times by a decade or so.  But, for any like me that hadn't gotten around to it yet...  The DaVinci Code is a fast-paced murder mystery where a code breaker and a symbolist falsely accused of murder try to clear him of the crime while following a set of encoded clues set to guide them to the holy grail, well, literally the Holy Grail.  The novel seemed well-researched and intelligent.  I don't know what percentage of the "facts" presented are true, but they are fascinating to think about nonetheless.  I thought this book was worth the hype.
