I don’t know if there has been a book as widely discussed and recommended as Dan Brown’s ‘The Da Vinci Code’ since the first installment of J.K Rowling’s ‘Harry Potter’ series.
‘The Da Vinci Code’ is a murder-thriller that follows famed symbologist and Harvard religious iconology professor, Robert Langdon, as he’s called upon by French authorities to help investigate a murder at the Louvre. The result is a page-turning story laden with secret societies and some of the most famous elements of Western history. Upon its March 2003 release, ‘The Da Vinci Code’ steadily gained popularity, eventually making it to the number one spot on the New York Times Best Seller List
