Da Vinci Code

Da Vinci Code is novel written American author Dan Brown. With combining the detective, thriller and conspiracy theory genres, the novel become a worldwide bestseller with sales of more than 40 million copies.

The plot of the novel involves a conspiracy by the Catholic Church to cover up the "true" story of Jesus. The Vatican knows it is living a lie but does so to keep itself in power. The novel has helped generate popular interest in speculation concerning the Holy Grail legend and the role of Mary Magdalene in the history of Christianity.

Even the accuracy of the content and description was disputed by many academic scholars in the fields but the popularity still make the Da Vinci Code has been translated into 44 languages and Sony's Columbia Pictures decide to adapt the novel to film, with a screenplay written by Akiva Goldsman, and Academy Award winner Ron Howard directing, which will release on this year, and I am waiting for that.
