I've read many Dan brown novels. The only one I really liked was Angels & Demons, but if you read one of them you already read all of them because the story never changes. The lost symbol has all the previous novels points: (1) a strange enemy, (2) a big conspiration that it is composed by just one person, (3) the same unlikeable main character; and (4) the tedious new girl. I finnished the book, but I didn't like it. Maybe if I didn't read the others I could have thought it a little better… Read Full Review

The Lost Symbol covers a 24 hour period in 500+ pages, which, in a woman's magazine would have taken tww#o and a half pages. It was long and laborious… Read Full Review

I started this book with hope that it would be as good as all his preceeding novels.
Unfortunatly it has far to many unrealistic happenings.
You really do have to suspend your intelligence to enjoy this adventure in the good old U S of A.
The last chapters get so wrapped up in symbology and theological ramblings that I nearly gave up on it.
I speed read the last few dozen pages because it was so childish.
Marks for this would be 3/10 must try better next time..
Ps Does the USA have any real… Read Full Review

Well, in the end my conclusion is that it wasn't worth the wait. No doubt it's better than a host of other books that deal in the same genre, but of course its quality will be benchmarked against his previous books as much as offerings from other Authors. Ultimately I just didn't care about the central characters which is a pretty major failing for a book like this… Read Full Review

September 15th saw the publication of The Lost Symbol, Dan Brown's third installment in his successful series about Robert Langdon, following Angels and Demons (2000) and The Da Vinci Code (2004).

Fair warning, as of the time of writing this I have only read the first five chapters but I am not at all sure I am going to finish it so here is an interim update.
Poor old Dan Brown. The pressure and expectation on this book has been enormous. There was no way he could really win. Book critics are such snobs it was destined for a critical mauling.
I am not a book critic but I do like to read a lot so know what I like and what I don't. This review is therefore based on what I think of the… Read Full Review
