What to do?

October 16, 2009

I am deep into Dan Brown’s “The Lost Symbol” and feel conflicted.   Those of you familiar with Dan Brown’s writing know that his chapters are only a few pages long; however, each chapter does not lead to the next.  He jumps from one scene in, say, Chapter 20 and then you don’t pick it up again until, say, Chapter 24.  I find his books literary “rides.” 

The problem I am facing in “The Lost Symbol”?  Easy.  On one hand I can’t put the book down, promising myself that I’ll read just another chapter.  On the other hand – I don’t want the book to end!

Back in the late 70’s, early 80’s, our family lived in the Washington, D.C. area.  The city is truly majestic.  We’ve lived in many cities & states and have also lived in Spain.  We’ve traveled widely.  But there is just “something” about D.C.   Yes, it is truly beautiful; yes, you can almost feel the power that is emanating from behind closed doors.   “Symbol” will make those of you who have already visited, want to travel to our nation’s capital again and experience it anew.  To those of you who have not had the pleasure — please consider a Spring Vacation there, but first read “The Lost Symbol.”   🙂
