Well, I am sure that all of you have heared of the latest "aristourgima" (greek word for a great piece of art , literature e.t.c) of Dan Brown.
I bought the book last May (when nobody knew it back then) and was amazed to see that within a few months almost everyone had read it.
The story was very well writen and very well set. It is apparent (to me at least) that the author did a very good research prior to writing the book. I loved its 'mystic' atmosphere of the book and the fact that it kept me awake for almost 4 nights!
A book highly commendable to all those who can 'accept' that there may be other explanations for our origin, than those offered by conventional stories (e.g. our parents, the Church and so on).
For those who would like to take it a step further and try to act "Langdon" themselves, there is a great site given by the author, with loads of codes to solve. http://www.randomhouse.com/doubleday/davinci/
Also, towards the end of 2005, the film "The DaVinci Code" will be out! More information can be obtained from www.imdb.com.
Finally, for those who liked Dan Brown's style, "Angels and Demons" is also a nice book, not as good as DaVinci, though.
