The Lost Symbol February 6, 2010

I just finished reading “The Lost Symbol” by Dan Brown.  I was looking forward to this book because I really enjoyed “The Da Vinci Code” and “Angels and Demons”.

The first half of the book was intriguing and suspenseful.  I should have stopped there.  The second half fell flat.  In dealing with Masonic history, with all of its mysteries and conspiracy theories, I felt that he could have come up with a better ultimate secret.

I also tired of Brown’s literary ploys.  It seemed like every chapter ended like this:

“Langdon opened the door and what he saw amazed him.”

“Langdon turned on the light and he was horrified.”

“Langdon raised his head and was shocked by the sight before him.”

Clint shut the book and was disappointed that he had ever picked it up.

Yeah, I agree. I honestly felt like it was the same exact plot as his other books, just different setting and different secret.
