The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

First off, I enjoyed the narration by Paul Michael. In an audiobook, the narrator can make or break a good book for oneself.

I enjoyed DaVinci Code and Angels & Demons. I had never given much thought to conspiracies and alternative plots to world organizations until reading these books. These two books happened across the pond away from where I lived.

Upon reading The Lost Symbol I had to start thinking domestically about what I had heard about the founding fathers and what I believed to be true.

I won't bore you with scriptural citations or readings. But what I will tell you is that I agree with Robert Langdon. With all the differences in our country and the moral decay that has progressed since the founding of this great Nation. I too have Hope. Hope that the human conscience will once again prevail after a period of darkness. That the hearts of a great nation will join together in "Laus Deo".

I am a voracious reader averaging two books a week; and not small, sleek volumes, mind you! My tastes run in the genre of non-fiction mostly, though I have read a few of the classic novelists; Dickens, Hardy etc. And, I must say there was a time when I was quite smitten with the Rowling woman and her bewitching characters. However, as I stated, I am more interested in history and social sciences and therefore, non-fiction.
