The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This book felt strangely familiar . . . it has a lot of the same elements in it as Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons. Really, the setting, the names of the characters, and the ancient society are all that has changed. The characters are the same stereotypical Dan Brown characters: the smart, attractive female, the crazy cult man turned killer, and of course Robert Langdon aka Indiana Jones in disguise (I kind of like this comparison . . ). There are still multiple character perspectives and abrupt switches/revelations of information that throw twists and spin you 180 degrees.
Given all of these well used elements that have been successful in the past and are again repeated and sometimes predictable, I still enjoyed reading it--had to finish all 509 pages!
