Dan Brown gets lost in The Lost Symbol

Then, mere pages later — don’t worry, we’re not giving away any plot twists — Langdon’s car speeds over the Memorial Bridge en route to the Capitol. Langdon looks to his left, across the Tidal Basin, and spots the “gracefully rounded silhouette” of the Jefferson Memorial.

Nice prose. But looking left off the Memorial Bridge while heading into D.C. from Virginia would give one a better view of the Watergate, the Kennedy Center and Georgetown, all to the north. The Jefferson is south of the bridge, requiring Langdon to turn right to see it.

Regardless, ITK recommends picking the book up. It’s a good read.
