About this item

In Dan Brown's long-awaited follow-up to THE DA VINCI CODE, symbologist Robert Langdon is again forced to try to crack a series of centuries-old codes in a matter of hours in order to avoid a national catastrophe. Though specific details of the plot are a closely guarded secret, a series of clues concealed on the dust jacket of THE DA VINCI CODE and on Dan Brown's website has fans buzzing about possible topics. How will the Freemasons be involved? Will Langdon solve the mystery of the Kryptos scroll, an as-yet-undecoded sculpture at the CIA's headquarters in Langley, Virginia? And lastly, is there no help for the widow's son?
The eagerly awaited follow-up to the best-selling The Da Vinci Code once again features Robert Langdon and weaves five years of the author's research into the story's twelve-hour timeframe, in an exhilarating thriller that is full of surprises. Five million first printing.

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 ab...see moreof the reviewer's review

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 dang...see moreof the reviewer's review
