I feel like I need to do research after this! The mystery was enticing and unique. I did not realize how complicated history can be especially interwoven with religion.

honestly super interesting and fun! very quick paced but i feel like that was a negative sometimes. every time i’d be stressed or there would be major stakes i felt like it got solved so quickly …
which i guess is the point since sir leigh was behind it all
… anyways the ending felt wrapped up too nicely tbh like where was the lessons learned? and i didn’t really like
sophie and langdon ending up together like fr? we can’t let a woman just find her family and be jesus’ lost lost descendent wo needing the mc man get some puss??? FR????

Fast read. Mostly makes you want to fly to Europe immediately. Well written. Immersive - great to read by the pool or at the beach and dive into another world.

I've seen the movie multiple times, which definitely colored my reading of the book, but a friend lent it to me so I decided, why not? Overall a fun story. Some parts didn't age well, mainly just the sexualizing of the one female character who was given a speaking role and wasn't a nun. Like I don't need a description of how physically attractive she is when first meeting her, and it definitely didn't need to be repeated once already said. Other than that, fun, pretty easy read.
