I’ve just finished reading The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown. I first discovered Dan’s work when The Da Vinci Code came out a few years ago. I enjoyed it and went on to read his other novels. I find they all fit a pretty standard formula but that’s fine.
His writing style appeals to me and draws me into his books. He keeps the chapters short and that keeps me reading. When I feel some time pressure I tend to look ahead and see how long the next chapter is. If it’s 20 pages for example I might decide to stop reading for the time being and come back to the book later. Dan’s chapters can often be just 2 pages so I forge ahead and might find that I’ve read 20 2 page chapters where I would have not attempted 1 20 page chapter.
Did I enjoy The Lost Symbol? Yes and I recommend it.
