When a big time author delivers a new release after being underground for several years, Chicken Lit’ers listen. So here we go with The Lost Symbol by the one and only Dan Brown, a personal favorite of certain Chicken Lit Bookclub members. And if history is any indicator of what we have in store, then we’re looking at a blockbuster:
“The wait is over. The Lost Symbol is here–and you don’t have to be a Freemason to enjoy it…THRILLING AND ENTERTAINING, LIKE THE EXPERIENCE ON A ROLLER COASTER.” – The Los Angeles Times
“Dan Brown brings sexy back to a genre that had been left for dead…His code and clue-filled book is dense with exotica…amazing imagery…and the nonstop momentum that makes The Lost Symbol impossible to put down. SPLENDID…ANOTHER MIND-BLOWING ROBERT LANGDON STORY.” – Janet Maslin, The New York Times
