Sooo… I’m honestly getting kind of tired of writing and scheduling reviews to post later. :-( Dan Brown is a very prominent author and I can’t imagine anyone not having heard of him or his books at least in passing. Therefore, these “reviews” will be insanely short and not really say anything about the books other than my opinions.
I first “read” this book a few years back when I was doing a lot of driving between Prairieville and Houston. I had the audio CDs on loan from the library and I remember thinking that it was an awesome book. I kind of forgot about it after returning the CDs and rediscovered the book after finally buying “The Da Vinci Code.”
I actually got my copy from user Lori Khalsa from BookMooch (one of my most favorite sites) and enjoyed reading it instead of listening to it. This book was extremely cool. There’s just no other way for me to put it. I love sci-fi and this book’s version of it was insanely plausible! Reading it was a pleasure and I can’t wait to read it again.
This is another book that I listened to before I read it. It was a hand-me down from some loser who doesn’t appreciate books and I’m glad for that now because it means I have a book that I love to read. This is one of those books that I can pick up at any time regardless of what I’m in the mood to read and I’ll be lost in it’s pages within a few minutes.

I first found this book a few months ago in a clearance bin. Seeing the author was Dan Brown, I immediately bought it. I knew this book was a “Robert Langdon” book, but I didn’t realize until I read it that it came before “The Da Vinci Code.”
I’ve read this book twice since I got it and each time has revealed something new that I missed. I love that about Brown’s writing. If you haven’t read this yet, get to your library and check it out!

This book was first heard on one of my trips to Houston, but I have since read it several times – usually by borrowing it from someone. I found it in the same bargain bin as “Angels & Demons” so I now have my own copy and can stop borrowing it! :-D I’ve read it a few times since I bought it and more than once I’ve found myself sitting at the computer, book in hand, Googling things in the book. It’s amazing! Again, if you haven’t read it, check it out!

I still do not have and have not read “The Lost Symbol,” but I am looking forward to it. :-D
Quick note: This is another post that I rushed through and scheduled. Yet again, they deserve better, but I can’t give it to them right now. :-(
