My first Brown book, and I think most of you too. Because this book sparked Dan Brown’s career.
My Ridiculously Simplified Synopsis : A modern-day search for the Holy Grail causes millions worldwide to question their religion.
With daring overview on religious aspects & symbology, his hero tried to unfold the mysteries of the holy grail which assumes to give huge power to whoever own it.
Brown takes enormous liberties with Biblical truth and historical actions by the Roman Catholic Church by using a drop of truth to make an ocean of assumptions.
Around every corner, Langdon and Sophie’s belief system is crumbling. Everything they believe to be true is slowly being revealed as a lie. Sophie trusted her grandfather, and yet many of the stories he told her about their family turn out to be false. Even the very incident that caused their estrangement was due to a secret - a truth kept hidden. Likewise, Langdon shows up on the doorstep of a colleague, Sir Leigh Teabing, hoping for assistance with their quest and refuge, only to find his allegiances unpredictable and their trust in him broken. Simultaneously and more importantly, as Sophie and Langdon confront the trustworthiness of those close to them, so do readers of their own understandings of truth.
This book is never for the faint of heart.
And, I’m not ashamed to admit that Silas met me in my dreams after I read this book. LMAO
