The Da Vinci Code Part II

All of you are being treated to a second edition of the Da Vinci Code blurbs because I found it absolutely mind-blowing.  The style of the author really pulls you into the book and the way he weaves history in and out effortlessly into the storyline is spell binding. Apart from the mystery element, I really liked it for the little titbits of fact that it provides. I learnt about The Divine Proportion, curious facts about the Fibonacci sequence, the reason behind the four year cycle of the Olympics, Da Vinci's works of art and more...I actually googled to look up some works of Da Vinci that were discussed in the book! Now, when was the last time a book made me want to look up new things?!!!! Been quite a while.
