DEAR Journal – April Fools – The Da Vinci Code

“Faith ― acceptance of which we imagine to be true, that which we cannot prove.”

Jacques Saunière, the curator, was found dead in the Louvre Grand Gallery in Paris.

Robert Langdon, the symbologist, was awoken by the call to investigate on the death, since there was odd, unique, unidentifiable symbols carved on the body. Along with French cryptologist and the victom’s daughter, Sophie Neveu, together, they discover the secrets behind the symbols, a secret written by Da Vinci.

It was going to be a fluent investigation, or so they thought; There was always a shadow behind their search.

I think the shadow is Sophie, but I guess I’ll never know until I finish reading the book.

 

My favorite quote so far appears during Sophie’s flashback: “Life is filled with secrets. You can’t learn them all at once.” Once she saw Mona Lisa’s face, she always wondered why was she smiling, as if she was hiding something. Her grandfather told her that one day, he will reveal the secret, Sophie replies with only rejection, stating how she hates secrets, her grandfather giggles, and says life is filled with secrets. You can’t learn them all at once.

The term secret appears in the book multiple of times, which is a main theme for the Da Vinci Code. This memory appears in the book, the secret of Mona Lisa which also hints the overlaying secrets hidden throughout the whole book.

I would recommend this book for people over the age of 16 since there are some quite descriptive scenes of somewhat sickening deaths.
