I don't even know what to say about this book. It was hard to read and it was hard to understand what was going on. I can't say that I didn't like it because I would have stopped reading it if that was the case. But I wouldn't read it again.

I very much enjoyed The Da Vinci Code...but this one just didn't do it for me. I'm sorry, I don't see how you can compare the two...okay they are both about history, art, puzzles, and murder...but I did not get into this one near as much as I did the Da Vinci Code (which fascinated me).

Picked this up at the airport and was engrossed before I even boarded my plane. Fast moving plot mixed with historical intrigue reminiscent of the Da Vinci Code, though I enjoyed this book BETTER! Great, great book.

Eh. I finished it, and it read right along. Sort of a rather watered down Davinci Code encased in reliving one's college years. And I'm not sure I believe that it's that cold and snowy in Princeton - I went to school in MN and we didn't get snow on Easter. But that is a minor detail. The book is basically a weak thriller surrounding a lot of information about a mysterious ancient text. I enjoyed it enough to finish it, and if you are in to "puzzle" books, you might, too. If you haven't yet, though, I'd say read Davinci Code or that author's other work first.

Convoluted, meandering and a waste of time. This is the kind of book that really makes you question the publishing industry choices of what is worth printing. What could have been an interesting story of a quest for a missing treasure is bogged down by confusing text and the desire to make the book seem scholarly. Supposedly, the authors took 6 years to write this book. I hope they spend the next 6 on something more productive.

I loved this book!!
It's basically the thinking woman's (or man's) "Da Vinci Code."
If you know Latin, art history, or cryptography of any kind you can stay one step ahead of the characters, but it's still really good.
