A very entertaining read, while not strong on character development makes for a very enjoyable "action" type book. The mysticism and symbolism around the Masonic ceremonies makes in easier to construct an element of mystery to the story (at least for those readers who are not familiar with the organizations. Throw in a generous pinch of the CIA and eureka! anything can happen. If Tom Clancy and Dan Brown were to ever collaborate they could construct a story that might require a "Top Secret" classification to read. ( )

It took me awhile to get into this book. I'm not sure why, but by the middle I was hooked. It was a good read that makes you pause to think about things you witness everyday in life and puts them in a new light...typical Dan Brown. That's why I 'm a fan; he makes me think and he does in such a way that I can't put it down. :) ( )

I enjoy the "facts" and the way the whole thing hangs together. How much is true is anybody's guess, but that's not the point, is it? ( )

Wonderful story telling. Another great mystery involving the Masonic Order, how Washington DC was built and some secrets of the Capitol building, a little spice of terror and suspense. Loved it. ( )

I'll give it 2.5 stars because I did enjoy some of the puzzles, but this book really was just "okay" for me. Also, seemingly interminable. By chapter 100 I just wanted it to finish up--and as it turned out there were still 30 chapters to listen to. One downside of audiobooks--you can't always get a good idea of how much of the book is left. If I'd been reading a hard copy I might not have finished this one.

I've read and enjoyed other books by Dan Brown, but I found this one got bogged down in too much explanation and moved very slowly. If you're a real history/secret society buff you will probably love it, but it was too much for me. And the payoff at the end was not enough change my mind. If anything, it made it worse because I found it very disappointing. Sigh. I'm sure real DB fans might enjoy really getting their teeth into all the symbolism, but I felt that the book overall could have been much shorter and faster-moving. ( )

In the end, as with “The Da Vinci Code,” there’s no payoff. Brown should stop worrying about unfinished pyramids and worry about unfinished novels. At least Spielberg and Lucas gave us an Ark and swirling, dissolving humans. We don’t get any ancient wisdom that “will profoundly change the world as you know it” — just a lot of New Agey piffle about how we are the gods we’ve been waiting for. (And a father-son struggle for global domination, as though we didn’t get enough of that with the Bushes.)
 
There are moments of excitement in this skilfully edited, deeply implausible thriller. At times the suspense is prolonged rather than sustained, but the 500 pages turn steadily and the overall effect is entertaining and certainly family-friendly. The Lost Symbol is violent but remarkably chaste and devoid of profanity.

If you hate Dan Brown, you're going to hate this book.

It seems Brown has decided to irk his critics by repeating every flaw he's been accused of. ...

No, it's not Foucault's Pendulum. It doesn't even come close. However, if you liked Dan Brown's previous books you're likely to enjoy this one. There is some interesting trivia about the history of Washington, DC which is in fact true, which is an added bonus.
afegit per camillahoel | editaRead And Find Out, Tom (Sep 17, 2009)
 
It’s true, his style is as baldly prosaic as legend, but there remains a heft to his potboilers that is hard to imitate. He is better at conveying claustrophobia and breathlessness than, say, the explosion of a top-secret lab (“fragments of titanium mesh . . . droplets of melted silicon” etc) but the latter will make a juicier scene come the inevitable Tom Hanks movie, and the author knows this.
afegit per Shortride | editaThe Times, Andrew Collins (Sep 16, 2009)
 
As a thriller, "The Lost Symbol" is exciting, although readers of "The Da Vinci Code" will notice that some of the same stock characters and creaky plot devices pop up... As District of Columbia resident, I must say that Mr. Brown does a first-rate job of delivering a Cook's tour with duly sinister overtones of Washington's famous sites... It's when Mr. Brown interrupts his storytelling to deliver one of his many lectures on Christian ­intolerance—with pointed digs at the American ­religious right—that "The Lost Symbol" becomes a ­didactic bore.

Neckties had been required six days a week when Langdon attended Phillips Exeter Academy, and despite the headmaster's romantic claims that the origin of the cravat went back to the silk fascalia worn by Roman orators to warm their vocal cords, Langdon knew that, etymologically, cravat actually derived from a ruthless band of "Croat" mercenaries who donned knotted neckerchiefs before they stormed into battle. To this day, this ancient battle garb was donned by modern office warriors hoping to intimidate their enemies in daily boardroom battles.
The only wrinkle was the bloody black-clad heap in the foyer with a screwdriver protruding from his neck.
It was no coincidence that Christians were taught that Jesus was crucified at age thirty-three …
Thankfully, this particular crypt contained no bodies. … The entourage hurried through, without even a glance at the four-pointed marble compass in the center of the floor where the Eternal Flame had once burned.
His hips and abdomen were the archways of mystical power. Hanging beneath the archway [sic], his massive sex organ bore the tattooed symbols of his destiny. In another life, this heavy shaft of flesh had been his source of carnal pleasure. But no longer.
