I like the way Dan Brown writes .. Gripping thrillers ... Nice new info after careful research on his part .. Hell, a friend even told me he visits the places by himself .. Hence, the vivid details ...

But this book was kinda different for me ..

First off, although gripping, it wasn't as gripping as The Da Vinci Code or the masterpiece : Angels and Demons ...

Secondly, being familiar with Dan Brown's writing style and all, I guessed the ending of the novel (where they'll find what they're supposed to find, to be exact) from the few 50-100 pages of this 670-paged book ... and guess what? .. I got it 100% right ! Hmmmmmm ... Is it me? Am I that good?

Another thing, I didn't quite enjoy the things conveyed through this novel, although I've learned quite a few things. But I find most of the stuff to be kinda weird and illogical among other things. Didn't like it much.

Oh, and the ending was a real disappointment .. Kinda silly even .. I have one word for it : Meh ...

I'll give it a 2 out of 5. ( )

I enjoyed this one quite a bit. It was quick paced and had an interesting story line especially if you're interested in the Masons and their history / legends in the United States. Quick read and the second half of the book was a page turner for me. I think the ending wrapped up to easily and cleanly although there was a twist at the end that I hadn't picked up on, but probably should have if I was paying better attention earlier in the book.

Overall a good entry into his Robert Langdon series. ( )

If I had a million dollars for every time I used random italics, I'd be Dan Brown. Cheesy, derivative nonsense. ( )

First of all: i did it motherfuckers!! I had a fat slump with this one- i put it down one night and didnt feel compelled to touch it again for like 6 months. 43 books later, we here: i put on my big girl pants and finished it once and for all

I liked it, but i didnt LOVE it. It wasnt as gripping as The DaVinci Code, or as interesting as Angels and Demons. It was more... philosophical? I feel, at once, confused, intrigued, indoctrinated, inspired, hopeful and creeped out. After 3 robert langdon books, i feel that dan brown is definitely trying to make me believe in something akin to a god, and honestly, maybe if more people shared a bit of the masonic beliefs this dude presents the world would be a better place. At the end of the day you gotta take it as fiction, but like,,, what if. U feel me?

You know what i would like? For this man to include his bibliography at the end. I would love to know which bits are true and which are pure fiction but i dont feel like googling every five seconds

Anyways. The antagonist here gave me so much bad juju. What a creepy dude. Weird as hell, awful vibes. Thats a job well done. Katherine is cool, and im very interested in her studies. (Again, is this REAL?)

i would have given it a good 4 stars if i hadnt been so bored towards the middle. 130 chapters is... so many. Just so many. It COULD have been shorter, they circle around the same ideas over and over and over so many times literally round it up my guy u lost a star im sorry. ( )

Interesting and thought-provoking read. A few areas were taken a bit too far and/or over the top. But all in all, this was an interesting, informative, and entertaining read. I would give it 3.5 stars if I could. ( )

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.

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.
