Washington DC In der amerikanischen Hauptstadt liegt ein sorgsam gehütetes Geheimnis verborgen und ein Mann ist bereit dafür zu töten Aber dazu benötigt er die Unterstützung eines Menschen der ihm freiwillig niemals helfen würdeRobe. I don t get all the haters of the Dan Brown books Are you really going in with the expectation that these books are going to be award winning works of art If so do you critiue every book you read with that same expectation It would be a pity if you didLike movies I don t expect every one I watch to be an Academy Award winner If I did that would certainly narrow the number of films I d see No I go to be entertained whatever that may mean on any particular day That s the way I look at the books I read particularly fiction and I think Dan Brown s books are very entertaining They are a fictional escape We ve all seen the stats that show how few books Americans are reading these days present company excluded and I think these types of books are an excellent way to get the masses to pick up read listen and get back involved in books That s what it is all aboutlike starting children with books from an early age once they re in who knows where it can lead them I want of my friends to read books and if this is the hook then I m happy to bait it and reel them inMy personal opinion of the Lost Key Symbol was that I liked it but after reading all his other books I found this one predictable Still it was entertaining and I recommend it I think many others will enjoy it as well
