    I read it. It's a good, fast paced, exciting adventure story. All that stuff about the true secret history is just puff for the book. He took a bunch of separate stories, like the Templars, and Mary Magdalen, and put them together the way a conspiracy freak does - connect the dots - and made it sound good. You can believe it if you like, but historians have been all over the story, debunking it.

    I say read it. Smooth transition, pretty good character development..I've read only a few paragraphs and will pick it up eventually.

    If you have even a slight fascination with cryptography, code breaking, symbols..you will find it interesting.

    I'm on about page 50 and so far it's pretty good.

    It grabs you quickly and moves you right along.

    It's worth reading, also the top seller at the store I work in.
