Fodor's Guide to the Da Vinci Code delves deep into the locations, people, historic events and landmarks that make up this gripping thriller which has captivated millions.

Following the path of Robert Langdon and Sophie Neveu, this lively book anticipates readers' curiosity, providing the fascinating answers to questions the novel raises, such as:
    •  Do cryptexes really exist?
    •  Is there a secret chamber below Rosslyn Chapel?
    •  Is there really a Priory de Sion?
    •  And what did conservators discover when they restored Leonardo's fresco The Last Supper?

Each section unravels another layer of the mystery through photographs, interviews with experts and solidly researched features written in an accessible style. Designed for browsing and exploring at leisure, The Da Vinci Code Companion makes compelling reading, essential for every Da Vinci Code devotee.

Having read the book, and much of the resulting spin-off infograms it was refreshing to see a publication that acted more like a tour-guide, and less like an amateur sleuth. Full of informative diagrams and photographs, as well as facts, and some of the legends, around all of the people, places and objects mentioned in the original story, this is a reference book for the die-hards and the curious alike.

Even after reading and seeing all the publications and movies that have sprung up in the wake of Dan Brown's book, I still found many new facts and fictions revealed on every page, and it gave me a better appreciation of the movie since I had an idea of what to expect as the main characters ventured around parts of Europe.

Overall, if you are ever planning to pass near any of the locations, you would be well advised to grab this book first, as it will give you a good idea of what to expect, what to look for, and how not to come across as a typical gawping, shutterbug tourist. It's not a huge lump of paper and cardboard, it's a nice tidy softcover publication full of glossy pictures that give even the armchair tourist a good feel for the locations. Thumbs UpThumbs Up
