Review: The Lost Symbol

The Dan Brown books are all getting hyped up after the success of the Da Vinci Code, then the release of the movies, they all got caught up in the hype. I was one person who preordered the booked months before its release on Amazon, my expectations were extremely high but they were not met. I took my time reading this book and enjoying it, it had its moments. You get a real view of the Freemasons, what they believe in, what they do, and what secrets they hold. Robert Langdon is dragged into another mystery, he is trying to figure out the mysteries as events are taking place and people are dying. Things were taken step by step, the funny part is that I was imagining Tom Hanks the whole time when reading this book, you get caught up in an interesting way, but you don’t get pulled into the story as you do the other books. There are books that engage you and you can’t put down, this didn’t achieve that like its predecessors, it was an entertaining book and a fun read but the story just had too much fluff, some parts were unnecessary and could’ve been done without. Overall I wasn’t bad, but I had high hopes, even the ending was a bit of a disappointment, but I’m crossing my fingers for the next one.
