"i genuinely do not care how historically accurate anything in this book is. i just love how national treasure-y it is and this book is the reason why i have the whole set. and i might have to confess The Lost Symbol was half of the reason why i wanted to go to DC for my birthday. anyway, really good and its kinda addicting, might reread it again"
"The key to enjoying a Dan Brown book is making sure your expectations are set correctly. Don't think too hard and ignore the occasional condescending tone, and it's actually pretty fun. This one is about America's Masonic forefathers and some fake science mumbo jumbo about brain power and ancient mysticism. I'm beginning to think I could write a Dan Brown novel. Here are the critical ingredients:<br/><br/>1) Female genius sidekick / love interest<br/>2) Some hokey science that aforementioned female genius specializes in<br/>3) Some physically imposing fringe religious guy about to destroy the world<br/>4) Choose some high profile religious thing and dig into a bunch of conspiracy theories<br/>5) Pick a fun city with a lot of history and interesting architecture as the setting<br/>6) PROFIT!!!"
