One of the best selling novels since hundreds of years is Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code which has intrigued and thrilled millions of readers around the world.

The Da Vinci Code novel was written by the American author Dan Brown. It was published for the first time in 2003 by Doubleday Fiction (ISBN 0385504209). It is a worldwide bestseller, bout 36 million copies were sold and the novel has been translated into 44 languages. Combining the detective, thriller and conspiracy theory genres, the novel has helped generate popular interest in certain theories concerning the Holy Grail legend and the role of Mary Magdalene in the history of Christianity — theories that Christians typically consider heretical and that have been criticized as historically inaccurate.

The book is part two of a trilogy that started with Brown's 2000 novel Angels and Demons, which introduced the character Robert Langdon. In November 2004, Random House published a "Special Illustrated Edition", with 160 illustrations interspersed with the text.

The book claims that the Catholic Church has been involved in a conspiracy to cover up the true story of Jesus. This implies that the Vatican consciously knows it is living a lie, but does so to keep itself in power. Fans have lauded the book as creative, action-packed and thought-provoking, while critics have attacked it as inaccurate and poorly written, and decry its controversial stance on the role of the Christian Church.

This kind of historical literature - novels, biographies, thrillers and documentaries like The Da Vinci Code; makes you sure that you will have a lot of entertainment while reading and trying to be part of this glorious events happening within the novel lines.

Dan Brown has borrowed elements from many popular historical "consipiracy" theories and strung them together in a rather cannibalistic fashion. His style is not enthralling and his characters really let him down: his view of the French seems to be directly borrowed from the US tabloid press, and the English villain is of course titled and perfidious, that goes without saying.

The Da Vinci Code is a load of old cobblers. If you like conspiracies and books who can challenge your view of history in an entertaining way, read the Da Vinci Code
