1.0 out of 5 stars Boring rubbish - will be a bestseller, 15 Sept. 2009
This review is from: The Lost Symbol (Robert Langdon) (Hardcover)
Here we go again. Another Dan Brown 'exactly the same as the last book' production. No doubt it will be a massive bestseller and then there will be another 'just the same as the last one' film with Tom Hanks and some new up-and-coming actress. Rather than wasting money on this book, why not just re-read one of his other books - they're all the same

No they aren't the same. Same formula perhaps but completely different stories.

Perhaps reading the book BEFORE you post a review would be helpful.
Fine you don't like Dan Brown's writing so why go to the trouble yo come here and mark a book as 1 star when you have clearly not even read it.

You, sir, are what is wrong with the world we live in today! You've just jumped on the bandwagon of slating Dan Brown because you've heard reviewers slate the last few books (which itself comes from petty jelousy). YOU HAVEN'T EVEN READ IT!!! Which part of a moron does this make you? Answer: ALL OF ONE!!!

Can't belive someone can write a review of a book without even reading it. Calling you a moron is a little harsh, I prefer idiot!!

You are free to like or dislike any book of any author...but to give a bad review of something you've clearly NOT read (and don't want to) is not short of stupidity.

Please vent out your personal frustrations somewhere else - a review is meant for how the PRODUCT is.

This was supposed to be a review. It was no such thing, just a poorly written diatribe.

It must be wonderful to be able to know the content and storyline of a book without even reading it, truly amazing.
Maybe you could do everyone a favour and keep your super powers to yourself in future. At least read the book first to stop the rest of us mere mortals feeling inadequate.

I wonder who wrote the comment for him. He obviously can't read or write!

This comment should be removed as it is in no way a review of the book, rather some idiots opinion of a book they have never read.

Actually, in IQ scales, 50-69 = Moron, 20-49 = Imbecile, below 20 = Idiot. Harsh but fair I say.
