I have such issues rating Dan Brown books I want 1. Snark ahead. Here's the deal: He also likes really short sentences. That aren't sentences at all. 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 learned. On the f I have such issues rating Dan Brown books On 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 slightest. As a former DC resident of 7 years, I have to admit, I was expecting slightly more 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 up! This book's wacky science theme is Noetics, and the quasi-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: Will I ever hate any book as much as I hate Catcher in the Rye?
Is it the best Robert Langdon book? Not by a long shot. Is it still vaguely enjoyable in the way only a Dan Brown book can be? Does Dan Brown's copy editor need to be publicly humiliated? Also, 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 brain. One more P.
Most unbelievable part of the plot? The Redskins are in the playoffs AND score on their opening possession. View all 76 comments. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

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 require the decoding of obscure clues.
This formula has given us a couple of fine thrillers, and has taken advantage of the authors familiarity with arcan 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.
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.
Brown's weak writing. 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 D.
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 costs.
And these are not the only naive, and clueless people who should know better.
Das verlorene Symbol (Robert Langdon, #3) by Dan Brown (2 star ratings)
The police and security guards are all hapless,and even the CIA director fails to question whether a suspect is lying when he says "I'll be there in 20 minutes. He repeatedly is adamant about thus and such only to be subsequently shocked when the true meaning is revealed. He always requires 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 more 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. 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.
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. 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? The great Masonic secret is the most widely published and read book in history - it is the Bible.
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. The mystery was solved, and it was an inconsequential 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. Theological addendum: 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 consequently are offended when Brown places this mystery at the apex of his new-age amalgam of Masonry, religion and pseudo-science.
My belief that man can become like god, is akin to the belief of Christian writers through the ages from Irenaus to C. 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.
His new-age hodge podge of religion is very convenient,non-demanding, self-asserting and self-serving. Brown ironically attempts to bolster his view of an impersonal God and a godless salvation by selectively quoting 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 more 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. I cannot conceive of such a benign observation creating any paradigm shift, nor can I imagine it unleashing pent-up human capacity. Even so, I suspect this theological critique 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. View all 50 comments.
Das verlorene Symbol
I think I finally figured out why I hate Dan Brown. Sometimes their books are entertaining, sometimes they are not, sometimes they are poorly written, sometimes they are not so bad, and I'm perfectly fine with it. The thing I can't stand about Dan Brown is his attitude. He truly believes he has been invested with the power of 'omniscience', and he looks d I think I finally figured out why I hate Dan Brown. He truly believes he has been invested with the power of 'omniscience', and he looks down at the reader as if he were talking to a bunch of retarded individuals which we actually probably are just by virtue of the fact that we are reading his books.
But this is still ok, it doesn't upset me all that much. What I think is unacceptable is the fact that in his 'all encompassing knowledge', all we find is an endless bunch of lies, lies about the most obvious evidence anybody can prove. Angels and Demons, which takes place in Rome, is filled with sentences in Italian, except that Mr. Brown didn't even bother looking up the spelling of the words and, as if that were not enough, he invented words to look cool in the eyes of his readers which, come on, wouldn't be able to pick all the bull I'm trying to sell them in a million years!
So, I don't know if they didn't want to look stupid themselves or did it to try and give Mr. Brown a better image abroad. Just one tiny detail out of many: Classical Greek - Apo is a preposition, with different meanings but still and only a preposition, for sure not a verb.
Dan Brown has to show us he knows the ethimology of the word apotheosis, and so Apo, for him, turns into a verb, and he lectures us as if he were revealing this great truth. I read on a review that his books are an insult to human intelligence. I agree, and not because they are necessarily awful books, but because taking reality and twisting it so that it can fit the story line and, on top of that, selling it as if it were some kind or revelation we can only obtain through Dan Brown's grace, to me is unacceptable.

I had completely forgotten it existed, both the book and the review actually I think it's unsurprising I didn't hold onto the memory of reading the book since I review over a year and read almost three times that many. But I also t Update But I also think it's really sad that a book's one memorable feature is how extremely annoying one of its catchphrases is.
Cudgel my brain though I will, I can't recall anything I'd actually enjoyed in this reading process. It was a long popcorn book, cocktail-peanut book, an unchallenging unmemorable uninspiring this-is-my-version-of-TV book. Its factuality is of no interest to me either way. I wanted a rollicking good ride, and I got one, and I walked away a satisfied customer. Less so here.

We have the elements of the DaVinci tome's megasellerdom deployed in a less intriguing plot. One of the Big Reveals is simply uninteresting to me, and the repetition of the catchphrase "the secret is how to die" no spoiler this, it starts extremely early in the book made me as irritated as any mosquito's buzzing ever has.
I am fairly sure it's intended to convey malice and menace, and build suspense, but I found it jarred on me by somewhere in the 40s chapters come and go at a dizzying rate, there being of them, plus an epilogue that bid fair to make me urp in its treacly upbeatness, packed into pp of text.
So why did I read this book? A chance to poke at a hugely successful and wealthy novelist who has never heard of me and will never read this review? I think Dan Brown has his storytelling antennae tuned to a fine pitch. I think every bit of his fame and wealth is richly deserved and earned by his honest, sincere, and successful desire to tell a good story to the best of his ability.
I wanted to be gobsmacked the way I was by that DaVinci madness, that's why I read the darn book! And I wasn't. No one could be sorrier than I am to say this. Maybe it's a case of once is enough for this reader. Maybe it's just a mood.
I tend to think that, had this book appeared just exactly as it is today in , I'd be yodeling its masterful reprise of the preceding volume instead of emitting a small bleat of disappointment. And sales figures, while the subject of messy fantasies for other writers, aren't in the DaVinci league. Others agree with me, and the chorus of "oh, well" reviews is loud. When Brown comes to write his next thriller, even if it features Robert Langdon, I hope it treads new territory.
Too many other footprints on this piece of land for Langdon to stand out. Such is the penalty of leadership: You get to blaze, but not possess, the trail.

The ending felt extremely anticlimactic, and overall the book dragged ass and there were whole sections where I'm pretty sure I either spaced out or could have spaced out and not noticed a thing. Likely both.
The whole Freemasons storyline was done so much better in National Treasure which I'm now watching in an effort to cleanse myself of this book.
Okay, fine. We'll go slightly in-depth with our characters for a moment. That pissed me off. Katherine asked about her a few times and then there was no mention of her ever again, poor thing.
Nice of you to pretend to care, Katherine. And speaking of pretending to care, I was astounded that Peter could give Langdon a tour of DC and be so coherent after the rediscovery and second loss of his son. Prior that I dunno, I always think that parents have a sixth sense about their kids. That in mind, I found it extremely implausible that Peter wouldn't recognize his own son in SOME capacity until the very end.
And Langdon Langdon just comes off as pretentious and two-dimensional. Yes, he has a Mickey Mouse watch. Yes, he's extremely claustrophobic because of an incident that happened when he was a kid.
It's annoying. Here's hoping Inferno is better. View 2 comments. View all 4 comments. Review as in Aura of Sleepless Dreams So then let's start at the beginning. The fact that I got hold of this book on the very day it released worldwide and yet managed to finish reading it only about 2 weeks after, is nothing short of an odd event.
That's because if a book manages to capture my interest I usually devour it within a single day at the most 2 days no matter how lengthy it might be. But unfortunately I read The Lost Symbol over a span of 2 weeks. This probably speaks volumes of how Review as in Aura of Sleepless Dreams So then let's start at the beginning. This probably speaks volumes of how unimpressed I'm with Dan Brown this time. Anyway without digressing any further let's come to the plot- To tell you the truth this novel has no actual plot because it had no aim from the very beginning.
So what does this book have then? The answer consists of - Robert Langdon, his long time friend and mentor Peter Solomon who's in mortal danger, a deluded lunatic as the bad guy just like always , Peter Solomon's beautiful sister as Langdon's companion for the night who's conducting some highly important research work on Noetic Sciences just another replacement for Vittoria Vetra or Sophie Neveu , Freemasons, the CIA and of course an all-too-familiar routine of figuring out hidden codes, symbols, puzzles so as to thwart the villain's plans and save the world from disaster before it's too late.
Okay that's all good. But what is Robert Langdon doing here? I think a man who had discovered Mary Magdalene's tomb in his earlier adventure should have a more broad-minded perspective than that. The time he spends deciphering few codes spans only pages of the page book e-book.
The rest of it is filled with too much information about the Masons, Solomon family stories and the warped thoughts of the psychopath villain. Even though Angels and Demons had quite a far-fetched plot it never failed to make the reader gasp. At least it had some edge-of-the-seat suspense to offer. Also the age-old animosity between the Illuminati and the Church provided quite an intriguing backdrop.
Same with The Da Vinci Code. The controversy surrounding the Holy Grail, Mary Magdalene and the Merovingians was spicy enough to keep the reader enthralled till the very end. But the Masons are not that interesting. On one hand they are an ancient brotherhood dedicated to searching for light symbolizing supreme knowledge amidst darkness and on the other hand they're protecting an ancient wisdom for centuries which supposedly has the power to bring about man's ultimate enlightenment.
Contradictory isn't it?
And why keep something secret that is supposed to benefit mankind? Uh yea right 'cause it might fall into the wrong hands and result in disasters of unimaginable proportions. As if the world isn't already in chaos and on the verge of destruction. We could sure do with some ultimate knowledge or whatever in these troubled times. Unlike his previous adventures Langdon does not make a startling discovery at the very end. Nobody gets to know what the Ancient Mysteries actually are. Brown only provides us with a brief overview which is not enough.
And this is where the readers are bound to feel disappointed. I think maybe it's time to put Robert Langdon to rest.
We've had enough of religious symbology, secret societies and historical controversies unless Dan Brown has the courage to shun his formulaic-plot-weaving habit and offer us a new concoction but with the same ingredients.

While it was interesting to read about the Masons and fun to read about locations in DC nice pick of Tenleytown and Kalorama Heights , I found it to be very preachy, way out there, had lots of holes in the story, and not very realistic.
While Mal'akh's twist at the end was entertaining, the holes in his own story didn't make it terribly surprising he happened to get every detail from Zachary in that one night that he "died" - come I was disappointed with this book, especially towards the end.
While Mal'akh's twist at the end was entertaining, the holes in his own story didn't make it terribly surprising he happened to get every detail from Zachary in that one night that he "died" - come on.
I also was waiting for Brown to explain what on earth were the "dark arts" that he was practicing, and his failure to explain made Mal'akh's story even more bizarre. In fact, it ruined the story for me because I could never understand what he was trying to do and why all the fanfare was necessary except for sending the video. Like some others, I also didn't follow why this video was such an issue of national security that someone with Sato's job title in the CIA would get SO involved and be so sloppy there ARE people in DC on Sunday nights who would manage to see a helicopter dropping people off on the tops of buildings.
While I understand that Brown likes to put in a ton of information about the topics he is writing about, I doubt in reality, people would take SO much time in that type of situation talking about it and making others trying to guess at what the answer is I got tired of Katherine and Peter trying to lecture Langdon. On top of everything else, I think Brown's point that our "minds are God" was hammered home so many times that I nearly put the book down.
I get it, Brown, I'm not stupid. View 1 comment.
La premisa promete pero verdaderamente acaba haciendo aguas. En realidad es una novela que da lo que promete; entretenimiento, pero a mi no me ha terminado de convencer, de momento es el que menos me gusta del autor. I'm on the verge of kind of liking this book and feeling slightly hostile about it. Even as a guilty pleasure, it was unforgivably formulaic. I rolled my eyes so many times that I might have temporary vertigo.
Dan Brown does a good job tapping into the public question du jour. Personal empowerment and the power of thought are tenets that are very popular these days. Brown took these philosophies and wrote an interesting novel about them. Is it plausible? Is it educational? Is it inspir I'm on the verge of kind of liking this book and feeling slightly hostile about it. Is it inspirational? But couldn't Brown take his writing talent and break the mold of these characters?
Couldn't he find a new plot line? Do we need 27 chapters with Robert Langdon protesting his involvement? Does every chapter have to end with a cliff hanger?
I found the suspense contrived and exhausting. I also have a slight problem with the underlying assumption that the general public is not ready for the full expression of enlightenment but I won't go into detail because I don't want to be a spoiler.
It will be interesting to see how people react to Brown simultaneously challenging incumbent religions, while also appeasing their sensibilities. I found it perplexing. I'm glad to be finished with this and I doubt I'll read another Dan Brown novel unless the formula changes. But why would he change it? This works for him. It just doesn't really work for me. Ok, I decided to give it a third chance on audio, and finally finished the thing. Here are some notes to Dan Brown: If you can't find a way to transfer info from one person to another without them "sensing" something fourteen times, then maybe you should develop your story better.
It convinces the reader that you don't know how to further the plot. Just write a damned non-fiction book about the Masons, already. He can't keep being surprised by the same lone-character-driven-mad-by-something-having-to-do-with-the-big-reveal unless he's dumb.
According to note number 2, he tends to lecture a lot, so I don't think he's dumb. Edit already. So why two instead of just one star? Because I honestly didn't see the big reveal coming. I want to know what happens, but I'll wait for the movie.
This guy is an awful writer. Overuse of italics to show emphasis and the repeated "why, I'm a professor so let me tell you the answer to the conveniently asked question" were bad enough, but the phrase "feminine intuition" just about landed the book across the room. Sorry, Dan Brown. I was always a fan, but this one just pushed me over the edge. Maybe it's because I bought it and was trying to read it in hardcover that the conventions were more obvious than when I read the others in paperback, but I just can't do it anymore.
Es tut mir ein bisschen weh, aber ich mochte es leider gar nicht. Vielleicht lag es wirklich daran, dass es mein 3. This went on a bit longer than expected. I did not enjoy it as much as previous two books in the series. The story itself was very much interesting at first but then I got bored and couldn't get into the story. It starts with noetics and Katherine Solomon but never really gets to the point what is that exactly until I've already lost interest and the book was a goner for me.
