The Da Vinci Code

Just finished reading Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown. This book is amazing. Based on facts. The best part is that I learnt so much. Came across the word hermaphrodite so many times in biology but never knew how it came; why the Olympics are held every 4 years and also the reason behind its symbol and other such facts. But the Divine Number PHI is simply mind-boggling. And all that holy grail funda - mind-blowing and worth knowing. And believe me, Leonardo Da Vinci was my hero ever since I read about him in history in class 7 - renaissance period. He was a versatile genius - architect, musician, anatomist, inventor, engineer, sculptor, geometer, and painter. So nothing could equal my pleasure when I got a book in hand that champions Da Vinci’s brilliance. Superb story telling and great suspense. Louvre Museum now tops the chart of places I plan to visit in future.
