So back to The Lost Symbol..... Didn't really like it. I'm finding Dan Brown's character Robert Landon stilted and one dimensional. The story line is pretty formulaic and I think Dan Brown has lost the spark of his writing talent. I LOVED The Da Vinci Code and I liked Angels and Demons (actually the first Robert Landon book), but this one was a snoozer and just really didn't grab me (oh and was even more unrealistic than the other books).
However, I did enjoy actually listening to the book and being able to do other things with the story playing the background is just the way to take it.
I would not recommend this book.
