Well its a fiction mixed fact is what i feel Da vinci code is.. Though many contradictions and not believable, but if its seen as fiction mixed, it can be enjoyed just as a reading!

The book is very interesting, I couldn't put it down. Dan Brown has intelligently twist history's facts to coinsident to his fictions. I was only disappointed with the ending, the story has travelled a long way, so many things happened and at the end it was only a way to make siblings meet and there was no intention of revealing what they have discovered.

Da vinci code is one of the best book I read...you can not now what is true and what is fiction...because church is trying to convice the world that book is full of lies and false pretence, so I think if church is trying so hard to convice everybody that book is fiction than you must admit that some parts of book is possibly true...I have to admit that book made me think very hard about christianity and Jesus Christ.

Da Vinci Code is what I call a factual fiction. That is the facts are mostly right, but the fiction comes in the interpretation of the facts and mystery that revolves around these facts. But, the fact is that the whole of history is like that. All history is the interpretation of incomplete facts by historians to best fit the evidence available. This is the fact that when people fight over what religion claimed centuries ago pains me as there is no real evidence to point out that this was actually said and this was the supposed meaning of the same. For e.g. if millions of years from now due to some freak accident the only books that survive are Playboy magazines, then wouldn't the people of that time period construe us to be people who lived naked. But, would that be the reality. Cheers! Ram

yes the places are real and it is very difficult to say where facts end and fiction start that is exactly what made this book so cool and controversial too

Da Vinci Code is indeed a very interesting novel.But for me,it's just plain fiction.BUt it can surely be mistaken as reality since DAn Brown has included true places,names,etc and it really helps in making the novel very interesting....but for me the novel is still fiction. THe places just like the Louvre Museum in PAris is for sure true..I've been there last year but the story about the Lost Feminine and other "bad"stories about the Catholic Church is purely fiction for me...
