The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown

The Lost Symbol

Our club thought he stuck to his primary formula that he used for DaVinci Code and Angels & Demons, but we agreed if it works then why not. We are located in the Washington, DC area which definitely made the story more interesting. Downfall - felt that the book dragged on a little bit at the end and could have stopped about 50 pages sooner.

Great book told from the dog's point of view... you may never look at your dog the same way again.

Still Alice -

I loved this book even though the subject matter was tough to swallow. Early onset Alzheimer's at the age of 50. What the author did BRILLIANTLY was to tell the book from the patient's point of view and you get a firsthand glimpse of how muddled the mind can get and just how devasting and scary this disease is...

The Time Traveler's Wife

Very romantic - wonderful love story although you must pay CLOSE attention because there are constant time shifts all the way through the book. I was able to follow it, but definitely had to concentrate harder than when I have read other books. Worthwhile, also saw the film - it was decent considering time limitations...

Wonderful book

Excellent writing. Lisa Genova is a knowledgeable skillful writer on matters of the brain plus she keeps her characters interesting and is always concise and to the point. Her books do not drag on and on. Very easy to read. Would recommend this book to anyone whether they are dealing with Alzheimer's in their family or not.
