    I don’t get all the haters of the Dan Brown books Are you really going in with the expectation that these books are going to be award winning works of art? If so do you critiue every book you read with that same expectation? It would be a pity if you didLike movies I don’t expect every one I watch to be an Academy Award winner If I did that would certainly narrow the number of films I’d see No I go to be entertained whatever that may mean on any particular day That’s the way I look at the books I read particularly fiction and I think Dan Brown’s books are very entertaining They are a fictional escape We’ve all seen the stats that show how few books Americans are reading these days present company excluded and I think these types of books are an excellent way to get the masses to pick up read listen and get back involved in books That’s what it is all aboutlike starting children with books from an early age once they’re in who knows where it can lead them I want of my friends to read books and if this is the hook then I’m happy to bait it and reel them inMy personal opinion of the Lost Key Symbol was that I liked it but after reading all his other books I found this one predictable Still it was entertaining and I recommend it I think many others will enjoy it as well

    This book is both poorly written and impossible to put downI think that about sums it up

    C 56% | Very Unsatisfactory Notes Its secret society has no intriguing back story the villain is inappropriate and asinine and the end revelation is lame

    I have such issues rating Dan Brown books I want 15 stars I think Snark aheadHere's the deal the man can't write He's a name brand url spewing Wikipedia like fountain of knowledge who CAN'T HANDLE VERB TENSES He also likes really short sentences That aren't sentences at all Really Expect iPhone Twitter and Google shout outs too I'm almost surprised he didn't mention the inevitable hash #thelostsymbol and tell us to use it when we tweet about what we just learnedOn the flip side who doesn't love a good romp around a famous city solving mysteries with art and science and religion? You know the drill and the formula hasn't changed here in the slightestAs a former DC resident of 7 years I have to admit I was expecting slightly from the location but Langdon and his companion du jour keep getting trapped in random places so it's a bit disappointing on that front He does get 10 points for a hilarious caper including the Blue Line out to the King Street station though and the Red Line to Tenleytown yeah Tenleytown shout out what upThis book's wacky science theme is Noetics and the uasi religious thing at hand is the Masons Since the first thing that comes to mind re Noetics is Fringe I sort of expected a Pacey Witter guest appearance but alas it was not meant to be I know absolutely zip about the Masons but who wants to bet their membership applications go through the roof this month?So my final verdict did I hate it as much as Catcher in the Rye? No Will I ever hate any book as much as I hate Catcher in the Rye? Unlikely BUT THERE'S TIME Is it the best Robert Langdon book? Not by a long shot Angels Demons still is the best of the trilogy Is it still vaguely enjoyable in the way only a Dan Brown book can be? Yes Does Dan Brown's copy editor need to be publicly humiliated? YES AND HIS NAME IS APPARENTLY JASON KAUFMAN according to the Acknowledgements so I'm not like stalking anyone here AND GOOD LORD MAN ONLY YOU CAN PREVENT FOREST FIRES CAUSED BY PEOPLE BURNING THIS BOOK EDIT THIS INTO SOMETHING ENJOYABLE EVERY TIME DAN BROWN DOESN'T KNOW HOW A VERB WORKS KITTENS DIEAlso if I ever have to read the words neutered sex organ again I will be forced to remove my eyeballs and then pour bleach directly onto my brainOne PS since I tweeted this and then forgot to include this here Most unbelievable part of the plot? The Redskins are in the playoffs AND score on their opening possession PLEASE TRY AGAIN YOU FAIL AT HAVING SPORTS KNOWLEDGE

    I liked Angels and Demons and I really liked The DaVinci Code but this latest of Dan Browns thrillers was barely worth the time and definitely not worth the money The Lost Symbol follows the familiar Dan Brown formula an ominous conspiracy a threat to end the world as we know it a relentless villain and a search for hidden secrets which reuire the decoding of obscure clues This formula has given us a couple of fine thrillers and has taken advantage of the authors familiarity with arcane history philology symbolism art and architecture But even this intriguing texture would not be terribly interesting without the intrepid symbologist Robert Langdon to lead us through the perilous labyrinth at high speed This time Langdon must find the Freemason’s grand secret hidden in Washington DC and evade both the CIA and a brilliant but scary villain while rescuing a kidnapped friend and his sister The DaVinci Code and Angels and Demons were both intriguing and thrilling enough to overcome Mr Brown's weak writing But because The Lost Symbol’s plot is so much weaker Brown’s sophomoric writing becomes much obvious and ever bothersome as the work progresses For example the formulaic mini cliffhangers at the end of nearly every chapter became trite and annoying manipulations Brown also employed several set pieces of lecture and discovery that annoyingly repeat themselves This book is full of Brownian cliches I think that the credibility of this work is further undermined by using characters who are simultaneously brilliant and clueless For instance the intrepid and brilliant professor Langdon who by now should be rather wary of mysterious invitations flies to Washington DC at a moment's notice supposedly at a friend's reuest but without actually speaking to his friend And even less credible is that without direct confirmation he brings with him a top secret package that he swore to keep hidden at all costsSimilarly the brilliant scientist Katherine doesn’t think to back up her life’s work of scientific research and she allows a man she's met only once into her top secret laboratory because she receives a TEXT message purportedly from her brother who she admits doesn’t even know how to text And these are not the only naive and clueless people who should know better The police and security guards are all haplessand even the CIA director fails to uestion whether a suspect is lying when he says I'll be there in 20 minutes More disappointing still is that the main character of Robert Langdon seems to have been dumbed down in this book He repeatedly is adamant about thus and such only to be subseuently shocked when the true meaning is revealed He always reuires two attempts to decipher the true meaning of clues the first one which is obvious and turns out to be wrong followed by the shocking epiphany One would think that a Harvard professor would eventually learn that things are not always what they seem In this work Robert Langdon spends time being lectured than he does solving mysteries or puzzles My recollection is that he figured out absolutely nothing critical in the last third of the book Even troubling than Brown’s weak and cliched characterization is that as the thriller reaches its climax it becomes clear that the pieces do not fit together well For instance for most of the story both the villain and the CIA insist the stakes couldn't be higher but in the end we learn that the potential danger is merely some bad public relations for a few powerful Masons Why then is the CIA involved in this extortion plot especially since it is legally barred from domestic law enforcement? The author simply fails to provide justification for all the black opps of the CIA counter conspiracy despite their central role in the story There are lots of problems with this book but perhaps the its greatest flaw is Dan Brown’s failure to ever explain the main premise for the book something he calls the Ancient Mysteries The primary force that propels the plot is the implicit promise that in the end a tangible secret will be uncovered While the protagonist keeps asking if this grand secret is merely metaphorical he is assured by friends enemies and even the CIA that the secret is literal and potentially dangerous But in the end we learn that the grand secret for which people are willing to sacrifice their lives and fortunes doesn’t really exist What exactly is the point of the pyramid and the secret codes and symbols if the grand mystery is already found in every church in nearly every home and in even in all the hotel rooms in the country? Doesn't that make the entire plot pointless to begin with?OK if it’s not clear yet HERE IS THE BIG SPOILER The great Masonic secret is the most widely published and read book in history it is the Bible Brown’s thesis is that the Bible is loaded with hidden wisdom and once these biblical secrets are pointed out people are going to be shocked that they didn't see them before And then they are going to be transformed because they now know that they're one with God or they're the same as God or they are made of God or some such new age mumbo jumbo So in the end the whole purpose of all the elaborate secrecy is that a few people think mankind may not be ready for a new age when human potential will be finally unleashed So for centuries the inner circle of Masons have concocted elaborate means to hide this enlightenment from a world not ready for apotheosis And so despite all the symbols and codes the grand secret is really kept hidden in plain sight So pay no attention to the coded mysteries behind the curtain The ending of this story is an embarrassment It may be the most anti climactic unsatisfying ending I have ever read While the story kept claiming that earth shattering secrets were soon to be revealed in the end all the paintings pyramids talismans and other clues turned out to lead to nothing They resolved nothing they didn’t even leave us with a mystery yet unsolved The mystery was solved and it was an inconseuential whimper instead of a revelatory bang It is my opinion that the author could not pull together the novel in the last chapters simply because there was nothing to pull together There was no sweeping statement to be made and no grand secret to be revealed This left me very unsatisfied at the story’s end Theological addendum Many Christians are offended by the idea of apotheosis which seems to be a core premise of Brown’s Masonic heroes Though the idea of human deification has a long and ancient history in Christian thought these critics have disowned the notion that Man can become like God and conseuently are offended when Brown places this mystery at the apex of his new age amalgam of Masonry religion and pseudo science As a Latter day Saint Mormon I believe that having been literally created in God’s image we each have the innate potential to become glorified and exalted through obedience to the Gospel of Jesus Christ My belief that man can become like god is akin to the belief of Christian writers through the ages from Irenaus to CS Lewis So deification doesn’t offend me at all Ironically however I find myself in strong agreement with Christian critics who accuse Brown of idolatry for claiming that this apotheosis can occur merely through our own mystical consciousness raising efforts The central message of the Bible and most especially the New Testament is that such a dramatic transformation can only occur on God’s terms and by means of his power and grace In contrast Brown attempts to “spiritualize” or metaphorize all particularity and literal meaning out of the biblical text To Brown’s heroes the real meaning of the text is whatever the true mystic wants to find hidden within His new age hodge podge of religion is very convenientnon demanding self asserting and self serving It is the opposite of God’s revealed truth which reuires self less obedience and devotion to God and our fellow men The Bible’s central message of obedience and faith is not found in Brown’s mystical amalgam nor in any other brand of humanism Brown ironically attempts to bolster his view of an impersonal God and a godless salvation by selectively uoting the Bible a book which persistently and powerfully testifies of a personal God a Father in Heaven who knows us individually and cares about helping us overcome our sins than developing our mental or psycho kinetic capacities I agree with those critics who claim that the God described or implied by Brown is an idolatrous invention of man as surely as that of Odin Zeus Baal or the God of the Greek philosophers whose center is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere In my view Brown’s mishmash of new age nonsense intending to avoid dogma and doctrine has very little point except to highlight that humans have enormous untapped potential I don’t see anything revealing or revolutionary about this truism I cannot conceive of such a benign observation creating any paradigm shift nor can I imagine it unleashing pent up human capacity On the contrary I think it is mankind’s persistent attempts to ignore the substantive teachings of the Bible that have bound us to telestial mediocrity Even so I suspect this theological critiue is probably a bit over the top when you consider that this book is just a work of adventure fantasy The Lost Symbol ought not to be taken too seriously I don’t imagine that it will shape many people’s views of God the Bible or even religion in general I don’t see The Lost symbol as much of a threat to my sacred beliefs even though I thought I might as well throw in my two bits on the matter

    I really enjoy Dan Brown's stories I have read Angels and Demon and The Da Vinci Code I am currently reading Deception Point and plan on reading Digitial Fortress I absolutely love his story telling I have read mixed reviews and I think the negative reviews are just really people who are too serious in life For goodness sake it is a book for entertainment not a non fiction story Though I have read some non fiction stories that are fiction then Dan Brown's book Brown's books are entertaining and make you look at thing in different ways which is good Everytime I pick up Brown's book I am totally immersed in the story and at the edge of my seat wanting to know what happens next I can't wait until the next book It took me a bit longer to finish this book then I expected but I am so glad that I read it Again Dan Brown delivers a thought provoking story in his uniue style I know others really dislike Brown's style of writing saying that it follows a formula of the ultra dramatic and the never ending cliff hanger chapters but I just don't tire of that at all A great thrilling read I can't wait to read the next Dan Brown book

    I enjoyed reading Angels Demons and The Da Vince Code but Brown wasted a plot wrote poorly and with less suspense inner logic and momentum A reason might be that it´s hard to write series in the genre of epic eyeopening world shattering blockbuster epiphany hybrid thrillers but at least the editors could truly have tried to make this better it was disappointing to be left with such a facepalmy ending and a general meh feelingThe worst thing about such literary fails is that one is waiting for the action the logic the conclusion towards the end and then nothing just lol rofl facepalm Believe me if you read don´t do it it you will feel this immense disappointment when realizing that this is the explanation the reason why you invested hours of time to be Brown pranked browned whatever The reason might be that there is not just the stupid premise but the missing good well written and credible metaplot the action and the sheer freshness of the mentioned works and that it seems to me like a failed approach of producing the next mind penetrating revolution in the thriller market without using the working recipe for whatever reason There would be so many conspiracy theories in different cultures that could be used to write series about but this is a no go I don´t understand why neither Brown nor the proofreaders saw this coming so it remains the only interesting mystery surrounding this concoctionTropes show how literature is conceptualized and created and which mixture of elements makes works and genres uniue

    The Lost Symbol Robert Langdon #3 Dan BrownThe Lost Symbol is a 2009 novel written by American writer Dan Brown It is a thriller set in Washington DC after the events of The Da Vinci Code and relies on Freemasonry for both its recurring theme and its major characters It is the third Brown novel to involve the character of Harvard University symbologist Robert Langdon following 2000's Angels Demons and 2003's The Da Vinci Code Renowned Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is invited to give a lecture at the United States Capitol at the invitation apparently from his mentor a 33rd degree Mason named Peter Solomon who is the head of the Smithsonian Institution Solomon has also asked him to bring a small sealed package which he had entrusted to Langdon years earlier When Langdon arrives at the Capitol however he learns that the invitation he received was not from Solomon but from Solomon's kidnapper Mal'akh posing as Solomon's assistant who has left Solomon's severed right hand in the middle of the Capitol Rotunda in a recreation of the Hand of Mysteries Mal'akh then contacts Langdon charging him with finding both the Mason's Pyramid which Masons believe is hidden somewhere in Washington DC and the Lost Word lest Solomon be murdered Langdon meets Trent Anderson head of the Capitol police and Inoue Sato the head of the CIA's Office of Security Sato claims that Mal'akh poses a threat to the national security of the US and that his capture is important than Peter's rescue although she refuses to elaborate Examining Solomon's hand they discover a clue leading them to Solomon's Masonic altar in a room in the Capitol's sub basement where they find a small pyramid lacking a capstone with an inscription carved into it عنوانها نماد گمشده؛ طلسم گمشده؛ نشان گم

    I liked this novel actually better than DV Code and A D which is ironic as it wasn't uite the page turner as those were but the plot and ideas were believeable I was very interested in The Masons as they were so much a part of the early patrioticrevolutionary era of the US As usual there is a gruesome evil person with superhuman like skills and power The whole story covers just 24 hourswow what a day Interesting insight from Brown on the Masons or Noetic Science? a temple of God refers to the temple of the brain; how the createdbecomes the Creator; when the eye is single your body fills with light For me the last part of the book added to my personal confirmation of what faith is and that our minds can generate energy capable of transforming physical matter I believe as Katherine stated As soon as we humans begin to harness our true power we will have enormous control over our worldand be able to design reality rather than merely react to it How about this idea God created us in his image but not just our physical bodies resemble him but our minds Now that's a a great idea and correlates with my LDS belief that we were all intelligences first even before our spirits were created Because of this we have God like potential power and indeed can become like him We just haven't learned all that is necessary yet Interestingly he refers to the Hebrew meaning of God Elohim which is plural Hmmm gives lots to think about especially if you don't believe in God or if your belief in God is limited Love this idea also on p 563 There are those who create and those who tear down The dynamic has existed for all time Another perspective of atonementgathering what is scatteredto bring order from chaos to find at one ment from this vantage point His characters discuss the inherent power of prayer groups healing circles singing in unison worshipping en mass unfortunately no mention of Christ in that view but there is still much truth there We have barely scratched the surface of our mental and spiritual capabilities Can you believe a popular fiction novel promoting such eternal truths? I'd love to talk to others about this but my husband disliked the book I thought it was great

    Dan Brown is one of my favorite authors I know there are several of my online and in person sounds so weird friends who disagree but ultimately you have to acknowledge the amount of time and dedication he puts into his story the vast eccentric cast of characters the intrigue and suspense the unexpected connections and the fast paced thrill of turning the pages uickly than you can actually read each one People love books for different reasons It's not always the beautiful and lyrical prose or the emotional gut punch you feel from its reality These books are meant to keep your heart racing your mind guessing and your eyes unable to blink for a few minutes at a time At the time I'm writing this review it's been about five years since I read the book and I still haven't seen the movie but I am excited to watch it though I haven't heard great things from those who haveOf the four Robert Langdon books in the series this was my least favorite Angels Demons and The Da Vinci Code had such complex and shocking story lines I couldn't help but be amazed Inferno was so intense and ripe with what if scenarios my mind was non stop going With this book it's still a huge and complex puzzle but it felt a little weaker than the other ones There was a different type of emotional connection given Langdon's friendship with the kidnapped mentor I liked the puzzle but were pictures necessary?It was a little too easy to solve this timeIt felt a bit repetitive at timesBut you still flip the pages faster than a normal readI'd push you to read his other books I'd be OK if you skipped this one But I am still super excited about Origin the fifth in the series which will debut later this year About Me For those new to me or my reviews here's the scoop I read A LOT I write A LOT And now I blog A LOT First the book review goes on Goodreads and then I send it on over to my WordPress blog at where you'll also find TV Film reviews the revealing and introspective 365 Daily Challenge and lots of blogging about places I've visited all over the world And you can find all my social media profiles to get the details on the whowhatwhenwhere and my pictures Leave a comment and let me know what you think Vote in the poll and ratings Thanks for stopping bypolldaddy poll9729544polldaddy poll9719251
