The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown
Couple of weeks ago I finished reading Dan Brown's "The Lost Symbol". I'm big enough a fan of his writing I would say, and had already read everything else he had written a long time ago [before the Da Vinci Code movie was made...], but somehow never got to this one. When I heard the news that "Inferno" was finally released, I picked up "The Lost Symbol" and pretty much devoured it!
Plot-wise this was probably not my favourite Dan Brown book. That however does not mean that I didn't enjoy the book. It just means that this book was even more of a textbook than his previous ones. Generally Dan Brown has the tendency of teaching through his books and getting many messages through. In "The Lost Symbol", there is simply much more of that, than story telling. That being said, I really found what was being "thought" quite interesting, and in some ways very much in line with my own way of thinking. So I did in fact enjoy the book quite immensely.
Now, finally to "Inferno". =)
