The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown

Six years in the writing, "The Lost Symbol" is Dan Brown's extraordinary sequel to his internationally bestselling Robert Langdon thrillers, "Angels and Demons" and "The Da Vinci Code." Nothing is ever what it appears in a Dan Brown novel. Set over a breathtaking 12 hour time span, the narrative takes the reader on an exhilirating journey through a masterful and unexpected landscape as Professor of Symbology, Robert Langdon, is once again called into action. Expertly researched and written with breakneck pace, "The Lost Symbol" once again demonstrates why Dan Brown is the world's best bestselling thriller writer.

I actually enjoyed this. But, I also enjoyed reading The Da Vinci Code when it came out. I haven't read any of his others tho and would avoid the movies at all costs. I do think that one of the "big twists" was glaringly obvious from quite early on. But still, a fun read. Also, I thought he was going to do something very very brave with the story-line somewhere around 3-quarters thru ... but he didn't.
