Yes, making a movie out of it would bring the book to life.

It could make a great movie, but it would have to be done right. The reincarnations could be very confusing and would be more difficult to portray on the screen.

Absolutely. That was one of my first thoughts about this book, that it would be a great and maybe even better movie. I agree with the commenter above that the settings would be visually fabulous. They could cut out most of the sex scenes to move the pace along lol.

Honestly, I'd say yes to this too. The switch between three distinct time periods will do the trick and make for a spectacular movie if handled properly. Unfortunately, after reading Dan Brown's book, I found the movie a fiasco, but in this case, I think the movie may be even more successful than the book. Imagine passing from a magnificent de Medici Palace or Leonardo's studio to the Uffizi gallery and the bombing of Florence in WWII and then straight to Getty Museum in Los Angeles.
I second your thoughts. I did not like the Dan Brown books made into movies. But with proper direction, this book will have a great potential for a hit movie plot.

The plot seems to have all the capabilities to be formed into an awesome movie, so I totally agree with you.

I think the book will do really well in the theatres. the superb switch between times will give a good effect as well.
