I loved Deception Point too, except for the unrealistically cheesy final battle scene. The overall book featured some of his best writing IMO, especially the political side of it.

I read all of Dan Brown's books except Lost Symbol Cry I'm waiting to get my hands on it... I was gonna buy it on the day of release, but got busy and didn't have time to read Ouch Anyways, I heard lotsa ppl say that it's not as good as his books are supposed to be.

Yeh, in Lost Symbol I thought Dan got too carried away by the expositions about technical stuff and the pacing of the book suffered as a result. The ending was kinda confusing too (to me), and not really satisfying. But even in this one, the character of the villain was well developed and there were some very well-written twists as expected from Dan. Smile

@Chinnu - The movies were disappointing for me yaar. Didn't enjoy them. The original flavour of the books was somehow lost in the movies...

@Demonstar - But, by now I have totally understood Dan Brown's style yaar. The nicest guy is always the villain...

Actually, I think one of the stronger points in Lost Symbol is that the villain is much better developed than the ones in the previous books and not shown as a one-dimensional character (except DVC maybe). His entire back-story and reason for present motives were properly planned and established. That's something I really liked in this one. Smile

Regarding the movies, the only I things I liked there really was Tom Hanks' acting and Hans Zimmer's music. Like Zerry said, I thought the dread and dark suspense of the books was quite missing (especially in Angels & Demons).

the main problem with lost symbol is of the theme...the freemason back ground is unimpressive..and the phone call and all reminds the davinci code...the theme always follow the same line of davinci code....may be thats why i dont like it....

and regarding the movies ,they are far better than harry potter movies,which lost everything after being a movie
