Bon ensemble

by Egirard (WorldCat user published 2011-01-24) Good Permalink

Je trouve le da vinci code est bon dans l'ensemble, je l'ai lu plusieurs fois afin de pouvoir comprendre les moindres détails. Étant passionné d'art, c'est très intéressant d'en savoir plus sur le Louvre.

Unbelievable

by ostephens (WorldCat user published 2008-05-16) Poor Permalink
There is no doubt that this is entertaining, and popular. The plot zooms along at breakneck pace, skipping from one unbelievable scenario to another, backed up by what reads like Google based research.The low point of this novel for me came when the main protagonists who are all meant to be incredibly...

Near the body, police have found a baffling cipher. While working to solve the enigmatic riddle, Langdon is stunned to discover it leads to a trail of clues hidden in the works of Da Vinci--clues visible for all to see--yet ingeniously disguised by the painter. Langdon joins forces with a gifted French cryptologist, Sophie Neveu, and learns the late curator was involved in the Priory of Sion--an actual secret society whose members included Sir Isaac Newton, Botticelli, Victor Hugo, and Da Vinci, among others. In a breathless race through Paris, London, and beyond, Langdon and Neveu match wits with a faceless powerbroker who seems to anticipate their every move. Unless Langdon and Neveu can decipher the labyrinthine puzzle in time, the Priory's ancient secret--and an explosive historical truth--will be lost forever."@en ;
