    Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to deliver an evening lecture in the U.S. Capitol Building. Within minutes of his arrival, the night takes a bizarre turn. A disturbing object is discovered in the Capitol Building. The object is an ancient invitation, meant to usher its recipient into a long-lost world of hidden esoteric wisdom. And when Langdon's mentor is kidnapped, Langdon's only hope of saving him is to accept this invitation and follow wherever it leads him.

    tess says: "Very typical of Dan Brown. Easy brilliance."
    "Snoooozzzzzee"

    What disappointed you about The Lost Symbol?

    Dan Brown managed to take one character and clone him into several supporting characters. All of the main characters use the same phrases ("Patience," "I assure you") to no end.Where Angels and Demons was a fast paced adventure, this was a slow dragged out performance. Endless lists of all the various symbols and organisations, cost me hours of my life. It is quite acceptable to provide such lists but when every character thinks about them, it forces me to hear it again and again. I should however not be surprised, as Da Vinci Code lost a great deal of the momentum from Angels and Demons. Even in DVC Dan Brown managed to turn on the snooze with his insistence on providing so much "proof" that his story is no longer plausible.I am rambling...


    Would you ever listen to anything by Dan Brown again?

    I have not yet read Deception Point and will give it a go, purely because Angels and Demons, and Digital Fortress were two of my favourite books.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Paul Michael’s performances?

    Probably, he was not bad.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Frustration. I nearly did not finish it.
