    Normally I wait until I?ve finished a book before passing judgment on it, but sixty pages into The Lost Symbol I decided that life was too short to read really terrible books. One of the things I liked best about The Da Vinci Code was that its plot unfolded in real-time: it takes ...

    Ugghhhhhh. I've been trying to figure out where to start with this one for the past couple days and still haven't been able to decide. So I guess I'll start with my point. This book F*CKING BLOWS. F*ck you, Dan Brown, you smug bastard, for insulting my intelligence like nobody's bus...

    I have such issues rating Dan Brown books... I want 1.5 stars, I think. Snark ahead. Here'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 sente...

    Ah yes, the new Dan Brown book, the most anticipated title in the publishing world this year. The one that everyone is loving to hate, because there's no better way to prove your superiority to your peers by talking about how you're just too intelligent to enjoy this crap because you'r...

    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 critique every book you read with that same expectation? It would be a pity if you did. Like movies, I don?...

    My Spoiler-Heavy and Sympathy-Free Review of "The Lost Symbol" by Dan Brown This review is going to be riddled with spoilers, to the point where I'm actually going to tell you everything that happens (in summary), because that's the only way I can express my complete and utter cont...

    I think I finally figured out why I hate Dan Brown. He writes very average thriller/ mystery books, just like many others do, and the thing is that I don't have a problem with the other writers. Sometimes their books are entertaining, sometimes they are not, sometimes they are poorly w...

    Kept feeling like I was reading an amalgam of Angels and DaVinci's Code. When I started wandering off in search of snacks in the middle of paragraphs, I knew it was time to shelve this as a "can't finish," and move on. ...

    I was such a douchebag about this book before it was released. Then I saw it there in the bookstore and I was like, "Did you or did you not like The Da Vinci Code?" (Answer: yes.) "Do you or do you not enjoy other books that are pop culture phenomenons?" (Answer: yes.) "Is the ratio...

    I liked this novel actually better than DV Code and A & D, which is ironic as it wasn't quite the page turner as those were, but the plot and ideas were more believeable. I was very interested in The Masons, as they were so much a part of the early patriotic/revolutionary era of th...

    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 ...

    I am so disappointed. I found Brown's other books to be captivating, if a little formulaic. This is just a blatant rewrite of his own material in a different setting. Angels and Demons set a bar for Brown, and he just hasn't been able to match it since. It reads just like The DaVinci C...

    When one picks up a Dan Brown book there are certain expectations. First one can look forward to a fast-based adventure pitting the intellect of Robert Langdon against dark forces intent on creating mayhem of one sort or another. One expects that religion or religious institutions will...

    I'm a fan of Dan Brown. I've read all his books - not just The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons, but also Deception Point and Digital Fortress. I like his writing style, how his books are layered with codes and mysteries, and how they're so fast-paced they make my heart beat faste...

    well, that's several hours of my life i'll never get back. you know, it's not so much that the writing is bad -- i expect it to be bad. it's laughably bad. (to enjoy some truly great bad, relish the self-consciously lascivious descriptions of the bad guy's naked body, they are made ...

    The use of a large amount of symbols and conspiracy buzzwords does not excuse one from having to actually write a compelling story. The "twist" in this books was easily visible hundreds of pages out and didn't surprise a single person I know who read the book. Now, I had very high h...

    Though technically better written than Digital Fortress, this is Dan Brown's worst novel. Brown creates false suspense by hiding revelations from readers even after major characters learn them. In most cases this is unnecessary, as the twists would have more impact if made in a timely ...

    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 ...

    The Lost Symbol is the third in Dan Brown?s excellent series of books featuring the character Robert Langdon. While The Lost Symbol may not be quite as good as the now iconic previous novel The Da Vinci Code or the fantastic Angels and Demons, Dan Brown still manages to grab his r...

    "Open your minds, my friends. We all fear what we do not understand." 'The Lost Symbol' is the 3rd book in the Robert Langdon series by Dan Brown. The writing style is kind of similar to that of the two preceding books. This one definitely was not up to that level of Angels and De...
