Book Club: Is Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol Any Good? Our Panel Of Readers Opine

Brown On Form

Dan Brown's eagerly awaited new book The Lost Symbol finally hit the bookshelves a couple of weeks ago, giving plenty of time for our book club to read it and give us their opinions....

Don't worry fans, there are no spoilers in this page because none of our experts have managed to finish it yet...

Concerned Citizen
Harry Meedsden, Circus Artist

"A nice handful of a book. Weighty. Hmmm. On opening the book I notice the words are printed crisply upon the page, 500 pages of them too, a nice number, not too many, not too few.

The book is heavy enough to throw at the dog to get a reaction, but not injure. All in all this book is just too good to start. I'll wait for the movie to come out."

Shocked Man
Jerry Sprinkler, Radio Talk Show Host

"The only spoiler I can come up with is that the last word in the book is the word 'Hope' (Italics and word copyright Dan Brown 2009).

That aside, I have managed to get to the end of the first page. My first impressions of this book was that it would be a bit of a downer. The first real sentence, after all of the annoying facts and acknowledgments and quotes, is 'The Secret is how to die'. What a downer, I thought, and only just managed to get to the end of the first page before I had to do something more fun."

Hug Tharsden, Bodybuilder

"I have been a sucker for Prologues and Epilogues ever since The Streets Of San Francisco in the television 70s, even though Karl Malden's nose gave me nightmares, and still does.

This book ticks the epilogue and prologue boxes.

So there is no reason why I haven't read any more than I have. It's set in Washington. There's a hand in it and a bald guy with lots of tattoos. So it sounds like a season of 24 so far, which might be something for the producers of the movie to consider. I would suggest that Keifer Sutherland would be much cheaper than Tom Hanks in the movie is all I'm saying."

Old Gipper
Gramps Rusky, Organic Farmer

"133 chapters! I love it when a book has a large number of chapters. I remember in my youth taking a week to read a whole chapter in a book. Today I can read a whole chapter in a day. Wonderful. I am up to chapter 3 and I already have the willies."

Ape Man
Harry Baldicoot, Retired retirement consultant

"I have read to chapter 30 and it is a rip roaring read so far.

The story concerns freemasons, Underground Washington DC, ancient portal's, a pyramid and an Engraved Symbolon... I have no idea what any of this means, all I hope is that anybody who puts in a search like they did in the book will come straight to this page. Yes, folks, I am a keyword whore, who want's to touch me?"
