What I Learned

I am a life-long lover of trivia. I read a fiction book to escape into another world. This doesn’t mean the book I’m reading has to be a science fiction book, it just has to take me away to a different place. The world presented in The Lost Symbol is similar to real-life but the facts and information he presents about the Freemasons is so deep that I feel I was transported to another world.


One cool bit of trivia I learned was about the existence of Noetic Science. I don’t agree with their opinions or conclusions but before reading this book, I had no idea they existed. For those of you who don’t know Noetic Science studies the link between the physical world and the human soul. You can find more information about it here.

Quality Of The Plot

Dan Brown is a master of his craft. I loved the way he weaves the story. The character feel believable and the mystery is engrossing enough to push me to keep reading to find out what happens. This book was on the long side but it was interesting enough to keep me hooked.

Final Thoughts
