    Summary: The Da Vinci Code is a complicated book about the journey or quest for the Holy Grail. Robert Langdon, a symbologist, and Sophie Neveu make up a hardworking duo following clues to solve the murder of Sophie’s grandfather and discover the secrets of the Grail at the same time. The pair connect with loyal friends and escape police in multiple countries all the while beating the dreaded Opus Dei cult to the clues. The plot takes many twists and turns as it progresses leading up to a dramatic finale where the Grail is finally found.

    Evaluation: At once I was dragged into the story as the first character is killed off before even learning his name. I have always enjoyed good mysteries and this is top of the line. I loved trying to solve the puzzles before they book did. I really loved every page throughout the whole book and learned a ton of information about both history and symbols. I highly recommend this to all ages dedicated to reading and who want a fun entertaining read!

    Summary: A monk named Silas is trying to find the Holy Grail; he goes to the Louvre museum and gets in a tangle with the curator named Jacqes. Jaques needs to pass on his secret, so he draws a pentacle on his stomach with his own blood. After a call is made by the detective Jerome Collet, the search for the Da Vinci code has begun.

    Evaluation: This book was a bit boring in the beginning; it made me want to give up. After the beginning, it gets more exciting with riddles and such.

    Summary: The Da Vinci Code is about a murder mystery and a man named Robert Landon tasked with the challenge of solving it. It starts off with Salis, an Opus Dai Monk who is after the Holy Grail. Salis kills a man named Saunière after he reveals the location of the Grail, but, as it turns out, Saunière gave him the wrong information to throw him off.

    Evaluation: This book is definitely one of my all time favorites because it is so mind-bending and mysterious. A bit slow in the beginning but it’s almost impossible to put down once you get reading.
