    When Jennifer Mascia is five years old, the FBI comes for her father. At that moment Jenny realizes that her family isn’t exactly normal. What follows are months of confusion marked by visits with her father through thick glass, talking to him over a telephone attached to the wall. She and her mother crisscross the country, from California to New York to Miami and back again.

    Overall

    If you would like reading the diary of a full of herself, whiny, complaining, self-centered 14 year old, this is right up your alley. The narration is perfect for the book because it sounds like it was read by the self-described star of a suburban New Jersey community theatre group. I couldn't bring myself to care about anyone in the story. Awful. Just awful.

    Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to deliver an evening lecture in the U.S. Capitol. 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.

    Overall

    This book had the slowest pace of any book I've ever read/listened to. I kept waiting for it to get better, but finally with about an hour left I just turned it off. I didn't even care how it turned out. I just wanted it to be over. I couldn't suspend my disbelief to the point that I could believe that in crisis situations everyone would stand around listening to or delivering long winded lectures. The premise was also just too ridiculous to be believed. Powerful or no, I doubt that the revelation of Masonic secrets would be cause for the kind of mobilization of govt. resources that the book describes. Save yourself the hours of boredom and read a good Masonic history instead. Get all the information and trivia without the wooden characters, pompous lectures and silly plotline.
