I am on page 578 or something. This is seriously the worst over-hyped book I have ever read. The characters are shallow, the plot is weak, the idea is beaten to death a trillion times before, and the whole book feels absolutely pompous.
Each day I read it thinking today will be a little better than yesterday. But it only gets worse.
After reading the likes of Arthur C Clarke, Stephen King, John le Carre and Frederick Forsyth, I want to hit Danny Boy on the head hard. Like "WHACK".
What are your views...has anyone else read it? Or is it just me?

Arthur C Clarke - 2001 A Space Odyssey. It is in this book he talks about an iPad-like device.
John le Carre - Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. British Espionage at ita best.
Frederick Forsyth - Any book...Avenger by far my fav though.

The worst part of it, is that the entire thing was absolutely pointless. Not only was the main character lied to the entire time, the reader was duped as well. Sometimes that can be good, but in this case it means that there is almost no reason for the book to have taken place.

Couldn't agree more. I found this book to be something already seen. If you have read other books from the Langdon series then the plot is totally predictable. The twist of the story is weak, and he overlooks some of the details previously mentioned in the book. Siena Brooks's twist is weak and done in a bad way, it leaves the reader confused and unimpressed. Mind you, all this is coming from me-a huge fan of D. Brown. I think that The lost Symbol and The DaVinchy Code are masterpieces, but i think that it is time that the Langdon series be put to rest. Otherwise, it is going to get very repetitive.
