I finished The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown this weekend. It is a quick look at Masonic symbolism in Washington DC combined with a conspiracy theory story, much like Brown’s other books.
I must now visit Washington DC to see all the symbolism myself.
Some interesting ideas were addressed, like science proving God. Not a specific God, but a supreme being. It also presented the Bible in a more positive light, but tended to the Bible Code theory, rather than inspired Word of God.
The story was entertaining and contained familiar elements found in other Brown novels. Damsel in distress, evil villain out to take over the world, and third-party(s) pulling strings (though you don’t know, immediately, whose side the third-party(s) will take).
