This review is from: The Lost Symbol (Robert Langdon) (Hardcover)
I bought this book as I enjoyed all of Dan Brown's previous books, especially Angels & Demons. This book is nowhere near as good for me. The story never grabbed me, I did not see the point of it all, and I found myself towards the end, and even the last 30 or so pages, just scanning through it. I didn't care anymore, just couldn't wait to finish it, and move on to a better book. Disappointing for me.

I totally agree with M Bound. I couldn't wait to get through this book. I skimmed lots of pages. It was tedious, verging on boring. I think Dan Brown wrote this entirely for a ££££ Movie Contract ££££. On the big screen, the visual effects and backdrops might be good, with lots of famous buildings and monuments in Washington DC, plus the CIA's sleek black helicopter darting here and there. Stretch limos and expensive cars. One of the major characters covered from head to toe in colourful tattoos. Would look great on the screen. The storyline, however? Well - the screenwriters can change all that can't they?!!! The book itself was a huge disappointment. Usually the book is better than the film. Not in this case !!!!!

Yes M Bound said it all for me too. As a great Da Vinci Code fan I feel a bit of a traitor. It went quite well for the most part but I agree, the last few chapters fell off badly and I was tempted not to bother finishing it!
