This book uses real religious and history to turn it into a fictional history/mystery book.
Short Summary: The Da Vinci Code is about a College professor framed for the murder of the curator of the Louvre. He then has to find the real murder and decrypt a hidden message left for him, while being wanted by the French police and chased by the opus dei.
Why do you or don’t you feel that others should read this novel?
I would recommend this novel to someone because it provides actual historical facts to the plot. This book also derives the theories of Leonardo Da Vinci of his painting of the Mona Lisa and The Last Supper. Also the story that is told has a good rising action and a great climax.
