ya ampun.... jika Anda berpikir buku parodi yg "suka ngasal" bahkan cenderung mengolok-ngolok karya asli, cobalah baca buku ini... unutk menulis buku ini, sepertinya penulis harus melakukan riset "seribet" Dan Brown dalam menulis DVC

Di suatu buku, pernah saya membaca bahwa dulu, para kristiani yang bersembunyi di bawah teror Roma suka menggunakan simbol ikan sebagai media komunikasi mereka dan di tuliskan di nisan makam. mungkin ini alasan, kenapa misteri Ikan Cod, menjadi bisa begitu rumit dan
Ini parodi Da Vinci Code yang menarik dan gak sembarangan bikinnya. Penuh tanggung jawab historis dari penulisnya sehingga dapat melontarkan banyolan yang lucu dan segar tanpa kehilangan tanggung jawabnya sevagai plesetan sejarah!
The Va Dinci Cod is a parody of The Da Vinci Code. This book is a crazy but hilarious parody that I enjoyed reading. In fact, I only got this book yesterday, and I could not stop reading it until I was done with it, which is not very common for me.

I have to start out by saying that I did not read the complete original novel, but rather listened to an abridged version of it (I did not know that it was heavily abridged until much later, and was not that interested in the book to go and get the ful
Picked this up because a couple of bits made me laugh... but having read half of it (on lots of trains on Saturday) it's getting a bit tiresome. Will finish it, probably.

From the back cover;
In his own blood, the dying man had written a single sentence in splashy, red letters. It was very much a red letter statement.


For long seconds Donglan stared at the mysterious message. ‘That, Doctor Donglan,’ said Tash, ‘is why we have called you at this time. That mysteri
Now that I am through with the parody, I contemplate which is better - this or the original? And after serious thought I think that both are equally lame, in their respective genres. The Da Vinci Code never did justice to the fact that it was supposed to be a thriller (with all the unbelievable code-cracking and an overly crooked line of events), while this one managed to evoke only a few laughs.

As far as a book like "The Da Vinci Code" is concerned, there is ample room to play around and make
This book was very much a case of if you are bored out of your mind and literally have nothing better to do then read it. I found that the story VERY loosely was based around the da vinci code, and the jokes really didn't appeal to my humour, possibly if this was an experience rather than something you had to read it might be more humorous. The humour I found unintelligent and so much that you read in it was just things put in there to be random.

I wanted to see a reason this book was written bu

Badly written, stupid humor, facepalm moments, complete nonsense. That's what I call a parody.

Someone clearly had far too much time on their hands, but I'm sure glad that they did! Funny and entertaining book that only takes an hour or two to read!

Komedi gila. Asik gak asik. Ceritanya ketebak gak ketebak. Pokoke gila. Baca aja sendiri...

Ha ha ha...

Pile of crap. I laughed once, at the line about pitch black being like the colour of a ps2, but otherwise, a total bore!
This is a funny parody of The Da Vinci Code. I was laughing a lot when editing this Indonesian version of The Va Dinci Cod.
Even the parody was lame. But still better than the original, in that it admitted straight-facedly that it was a fiction.

Nggak ngerti sama buku ini, dan sama sekali nggak selesai bacanya. Untung dikasih orang bukan beli sendiri. :)
Davinci Code's parody. Very smart and hilarious. But I think the writer, uhm... on Vatican side...
Kristy Marcinová
