The Lost Symbol – Dan Brown

Started 9/20/2010

Finished a few days later.

Damn you Dan Brown…you’re such an engrossing writer! Very rarely do books suck me in until 3am like this….but Dan Brown pulls it off with panache. I very much enjoyed this book and can’t wait to not-sleep through his earlier works (I’ve only read this and Da Vinci Code).

Pg. 86: In the words of futurist Arthur C. Clarke, ‘Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.’

I wonder if this was ever quoted concerning the Flash Rogue, Abra Kadabra, from the 64th century?

Pg. 104: Peter Solomon would be horrified to know how badly Langdon had failed him.

I should have mailed it to the Marx Brothers.

Will you take it easy?

Take it easy? Why do you think I sent it home in the first place?! So that it wouldn’t fall into their hands!

I came here to save you!

Oh yeah? Well’s who going to come to save you, Junior?!

Pg. 215: the pyramid leads to the entrance of a spiral staircase.

The more I read the more I wonder…isn’t this the same territory that National Treasure did 6 years ago? Granted with more intriguing details than could be detailed in the movie, but still.
