I have such issues rating Dan Brown books I want 15 stars I think Snark aheadHere's the deal the man can't write He's a name brand url spewing Wikipedia like fountain of knowledge who CAN'T HANDLE VERB TENSES He also likes really short sentences That aren't sentences at all Really Expect iPhone Twitter and Google shout outs too I'm almost surprised he didn't mention the inevitable hash #thelostsymbol and tell us to use it when we tweet about what we just learnedOn the flip side who doesn't love a good romp around a famous city solving mysteries with art and science and religion You know the drill and the formula hasn't changed here in the slightestAs a former DC resident of 7 years I have to admit I was expecting slightly from the location but Langdon and his companion du jour keep getting trapped in random places so it's a bit disappointing on that front He does get 10 points for a hilarious caper including the Blue Line out to the King Street station though and the Red Line to Tenleytown yeah Tenleytown shout out what upThis book's wacky science theme is Noetics and the uasi religious thing at hand is the Masons Since the first thing that comes to mind re Noetics is Fringe I sort of expected a Pacey Witter guest appearance but alas it was not meant to be I know absolutely zip about the Masons but who wants to bet their membership applications go through the roof this monthSo my final verdict did I hate it as much as Catcher in the Rye No Will I ever hate any book as much as I hate Catcher in the Rye Unlikely BUT THERE'S TIME Is it the best Robert Langdon book Not by a long shot Angels Demons still is the best of the trilogy Is it still vaguely enjoyable in the way only a Dan Brown book can be Yes Does Dan Brown's copy editor need to be publicly humiliated YES AND HIS NAME IS APPARENTLY JASON KAUFMAN according to the Acknowledgements so I'm not like stalking anyone here AND GOOD LORD MAN ONLY YOU CAN PREVENT FOREST FIRES CAUSED BY PEOPLE BURNING THIS BOOK EDIT THIS INTO SOMETHING ENJOYABLE EVERY TIME DAN BROWN DOESN'T KNOW HOW A VERB WORKS KITTENS DIEAlso if I ever have to read the words neutered sex organ again I will be forced to remove my eyeballs and then pour bleach directly onto my brainOne PS since I tweeted this and then forgot to include this here Most unbelievable part of the plot The Redskins are in the playoffs AND score on their opening possession PLEASE TRY AGAIN YOU FAIL AT HAVING SPORTS KNOWLEDGE

Her its recipient into a long lost world of esoteric wisdomWhen Langdon's beloved mentor Peter Solomon a prominent Mason and philanthropist is brutally kidnapped Langdon realizes his only hope of saving Peter is to accept this mystical invitation and follow wherever it leads him Langdon is instantly plunged into a clandestine world of Masonic secrets hidden history and never before seen locations all of which seem to be dragging him toward a single inconceivable truth. I liked this novel actually better than DV Code and A D which is ironic as it wasn't uite the page turner as those were but the plot and ideas were believeable I was very interested in The Masons as they were so much a part of the early patrioticrevolutionary era of the US As usual there is a gruesome evil person with superhuman like skills and power The whole story covers just 24 hourswow what a day Interesting insight from Brown on the Masons or Noetic Science a temple of God refers to the temple of the brain; how the createdbecomes the Creator; when the eye is single your body fills with light For me the last part of the book added to my personal confirmation of what faith is and that our minds can generate energy capable of transforming physical matter I believe as Katherine stated As soon as we humans begin to harness our true power we will have enormous control over our worldand be able to design reality rather than merely react to it How about this idea God created us in his image but not just our physical bodies resemble him but our minds Now that's a a great idea and correlates with my LDS belief that we were all intelligences first even before our spirits were created Because of this we have God like potential power and indeed can become like him We just haven't learned all that is necessary yet Interestingly he refers to the Hebrew meaning of God Elohim which is plural Hmmm gives lots to think about especially if you don't believe in God or if your belief in God is limited Love this idea also on p 563 There are those who create and those who tear down The dynamic has existed for all time Another perspective of atonementgathering what is scatteredto bring order from chaos to find at one ment from this vantage point His characters discuss the inherent power of prayer groups healing circles singing in unison worshipping en mass unfortunately no mention of Christ in that view but there is still much truth there We have barely scratched the surface of our mental and spiritual capabilities Can you believe a popular fiction novel promoting such eternal truths I'd love to talk to others about this but my husband disliked the book I thought it was great
