I am currently on Jon Meachem's American Lion, which is about Andrew Jackson's presidency. It won a Pulitzer, so I am hoping it delivers.
I've read all his novels and I have to say that they are all really fun to read. All are page turners and are always entertaining. My favorite was actually Angles and Demons but it was also the first of his that I read so that could be a big reason for it.

The latest dan brown was pure trash. Really unenjoyable and the usual twist was a let down. Idk I think if I went back to read his other books I'd probably not enjoy them that much either. Angel and Demons is probably his best though.

^^ Too bad, I was planning on reading Last Symbol soon. Guess I will have to think about it. I like Angels and Demons more than Da Vinci Code, but they both seem like books I would enjoy as a young teenager. Six years later, if I were to go back and read them, I doubt I would enjoy them nearly as much. His research is commendable, though. I really hope Digital Fortress is as good as Deception Point.

It is iirc. Although you may suffer from being older and stuff too. I think that was prob it for me. I mean you should probably read The Lost Symbol anyway, you might like it.

I found a paperback copy for a dollar, so I might go for it, but I wish he did not do a trilogy. Separate characters with separate stories would be optimal for me. I think he said he has at least 20 stories for Robert Langdon. Please don't. If Digital Fortress goes well, I will give Lost Symbol a shot.

Lost Symbol was easily the worst of his books. It was enjoyable enough but looking back it just seems like such a ridiculous plot and course of events that took place.

And why get rid of Langdon? I mean it's not like he's this deep character. I mean all we know is that he's claustrophobic, is a good swimmer, and has a Mickey Mouse watch. Oh, and he's really smart. Brown is really all about the plot and not so much on creating interesting character.

I mean you could just have easily put Langdon in his other books and the same exact things could have happened.

Picked up the first two books of the Mistborn Trilogy today, heard good things and I liked what Sanderson did with the latest Wheel Of Time novel.

Also bought the latter 2 books of the First Law Trilogy (Already had 'The Blade Itself') and am expecting them to be as good as the first book.

Reading "The Lost Scrapbook" by Evan Dara. One of the best books I've read in a while. Maybe the best debut novel I've ever read.
