My take on The Lost Symbol October 28, 2009

Posted by fetzthechemist in Uncategorized.

When The Da Vinci Code came out, I thought it was an overhyped potboiler. I like action book sometime. I used to read Tom Clancy in his earlier days before fame dulled his pen. But the hype about Da Vinci Code was because it was percieved as being anti-Catholic. So I wanuted a couple of years, read it and the prequel Angels and Demons. A&D had not created much response, I guess because the Catholics were more heroic than villanous. The two are good reads with intricate plots and a lot of homework done on symbology and history to make the stories cohesive. So I awaited the sequel.

It is also well put together and flows. The only downside is that Dan Brown seems to spend more time, especially at the end, moralizing about virtues. But it is a good fit with the other two. The heroes this time are the Masons and some debunking of their myths are a main theme.
