I hadn't realized this was out in paperback yet, until I got it as a Birthday gift, so just kind of shooting it out there, for folks like me, who like to wait till paperback.

Isn't a money thing, just that these are just more portable (I can put them in a trench coat pocket or jacket pocket), vs. a hardback. So, I wait, so I can take it with me on lunch breaks, etc.

Just started it, and so far, seems as interesting as his others, so here's hoping (and no spoilers!)...

I enjoy his books as well, great fiction mixed with truths.

One of the world's most popular authors, Dan Brown, sits down for a rare and exclusive interview with NBC News' Matt Lauer to talk about his new book, "The Lost Symbol," the beliefs of the Freemasons, the power of the human mind, whether people can become gods and a little known science that may tie them all together.

Thanks for the heads up. I'll definitely snag this one. If it's anywhere close to as good as the DaVinci Code (very good read) or Angels and Demons (even better) it'll be a real page turner.

I'm about halfway through, and I've enjoyed it just as much as the others. I have a feeling I've already guessed the big ending, but we'll see.

You did, trust me.

Yep, I did (on all counts). It really follows a similar formula as DaVinci Code. The bit about Noetic science is interesting though, and something I'll be looking more into.

Was still a good read though, and I'd recommend it for any who like his stuff.

Well, I did read the whole thing, but I don't get it. The Lost Symbol is vague, boring, excessively violent, confusing, with 2 or 3 really good chapters in the middle (where the chase really gets going). Bottom line? Borrow it from a library, even if you have to wait a month for your turn. It's not a typical Dan Brown novel.

I am 10 pages from the end of the book, so I guess I am pretty much finished. It was ok, but not nearly as good as Angels and Demons or even the Da Vinci Code. Thankfully it was not as bad as the dreadful Digital Fortress and Deception Point. I wish I had never picked up those pieces of crap.

What bothered me about The Lost Symbol is the implausibility of the villain's trump card--the video. So what if high-ranking members of the government are Masons? Would that really bring the government down? I sincerely doubt it. Some of the most revered presidents were Masons.

Yeah, that was difficult to gloss over...that video wouldn't do crap.

I actually liked Deception Point, well, the story...but the writing in it was seemingly more rushed than usual perhaps. Maybe he had a deadline and was up against it? I don't know. Still, I enjoyed it though. (and didn't see that twist coming, unlike this book).
