About this item


About the Book

The eagerly awaited follow-up to his #1 international phenomenon "The DaVinciCode, The Lost Symbol" once again features Brown's unforgettable protagonist, Harvard symbol expert Robert Langdon.

Book Synopsis

In this stunning follow-up to the global phenomenon The Da Vinci Code, Dan Brown demonstrates once again why he is the world's most popular thriller writer. The Lost Symbol is a masterstroke of storytelling--a deadly race through a real-world labyrinth of codes, secrets, and unseen truths . . . all under the watchful eye of Brown's most terrifying villain to date. Set within the hidden chambers, tunnels, and temples of Washington, D.C., The Lost Symbol accelerates through a startling landscape toward an unthinkable finale.

As the story opens, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned unexpectedly to deliver an evening lecture in the U.S. Capitol Building. Within minutes of his arrival, however, the night takes a bizarre turn. A disturbing object --artfully encoded with five symbols--is discovered in the Capitol Building. Langdon recognizes the object as an ancient invitation . . . one meant to usher its recipient into a long-lost world of esoteric wisdom.

When Langdon's beloved mentor, Peter Solomon--a prominent Mason and philanthropist --is brutally kidnapped, Langdon realizes his only hope of saving Peter is to accept this mystical invitation and follow wherever it leads him. Langdon is instantly plunged into a clandestine world of Masonic secrets, hidden history, and never-before-seen locations--all of which seem to be dragging him toward a single, inconceivable truth.

As the world discovered in The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons, Dan Brown's novels are brilliant tapestries of veiled histories, arcane symbols, and enigmatic codes. In this new novel, he again challenges readers with an intelligent, lightning-paced story that offers surprises at every turn. The Lost Symbol is exactly what Brown's fans have been waiting for . . . his most thrilling novel yet.

Wonderful Thriller

5 out of 5 stars

As a parent of a young child looking for escapist literature in the evening, I found The Lost Symbol to satisfy all criteria; thrills, chills, thought-provoking codes/ciphers, and a great ending. The Lost Symbol is probably not quite as good as The Da Vinci Code but that's a pretty high standard. I thoroughy enjoyed all aspects The Lost Symbol and can recommend it to anyone looking for a fun, fast, smart, thought-provoking read.

Disappointing and Would Not Recommend

2 out of 5 stars

I really enjoyed the Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons. I was excited to hear that Dan Brown was coming out with a new book! I pre-ordered this book and got it the day it came out. However, it was not at all what I had hoped. The "twist" at the end was not a surprise at all. It was pretty obvious about half way through the book. Also, there are times when the logic doesn't follow, which was annoying. I'm not talking about the symbolism logic. For example, someone who is trying to find Robert has trouble figuring out where he went. Later, you find out that they were tracking his phone so they should have been able to find him right away.

Absolutely incredible

If you're a fan of Dan Brown's other novels, you won't be disappointed by The Lost Symbol. If you haven't read his other novels, you'll be captivated by the journey Brown takes you on. In fashion with his previous works (which don't need to be read prior to this), you follow Robert Langdon on a dangerous and mind-blowing journey that's filled with tons of historical, religious and mystical references that are expertly weaved together to create an incredibly intricate plot that leaves you wondering where the line between truth and fiction is drawn.The plot is suspenseful and filled with so many twists and turns your jaw will drop time and time again. This book is really hard to put down! It's filled with surprises to the very end.Overall, I give this book a 5 star rating. Just like Angels and Demons and The DaVinci Code, The Lost Symbol is an amazing novel that can be read time and time again and still leaves you surprised. It's worth every penny.
