The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown
I was very keen to read this book as i thoroughly enjoyed the first two, however i must admit to some slight disappointment.
The Lost Symbol is a slow book, not much seems to happen for some time. The Da Vinci Code was similar but had a much more interesting storyline, in this book i felt like we had gone over this ground one too many times.
However, the history and themes running through the book were fairly interesting, the Freemasons and their (supposed) current actions and beliefs as well as the ever-present symbology kept me interested enough to finish the story.
I must say that the ending was not quite what i had expected, although there was the twist which is a matter of course for Dan Brown, the actual Lost Symbol, whilst i appreciate the subtelty, was a bit of a let down.
Fans will like it i am sure, and i did like it, but i didn't think it up to scratch and i won't be in a hurry to read it again.
