Love Him or Hate Him?
Love him or hate him, Dan Brown can tell a story! His Professor Robert Langdon is one of the most interesting characters created in a long time. What I wouldn't give to be as smart as he is. I was on the edge of my seat ( or bed) as I read "The Lost Symbol". The factoids that Brown adds regarding "secret societies", hidden items, and just plain stuff that not everyone knows about, keep the series fresh. While he is no Shakespeare, Brown can keep your interest. This time, it is The Masons, who hold the secrets. Racing through the streets of Washington DC, while running from a mad monster of a man, and the CIA, Langdon is the code breaker, hero, and possible love interest, trying to protect the biggest secret in Mason lore, and save a life. The story rocks, and if you must suspend belief, then do it. It is a good time! ( and a great procrastination tool)
