It was the most eagerly awaited book of recent times. Dan Brown’s next after “The Da Vinci Code” was expected to be something special. And it is. Even though it follows the same time-tested formula that worked so well in the previous book, it is a page-turner and very illuminating about history (especially, the founding of the US and Washington DC).
I bought the Kindle version of the book for $9.99 the day it was published. I use the Kindle primarily for fiction (thrillers are what I like). At any point, I have a few unread books that I can always turn to when things get a wee bit boring in life!
Reading “The Lost Symbol”, I couldn’t help but think that someone should do something similar for India. We have such a wide and long history, so there should be plenty of scope for a thriller that weaves India’s rich past with the present. We need a Dan Brown for India!
