Book Overview

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.

    Dan Brown may reuse the plot and storyline in each novel. But it's an exciting storyline! And if you're like me, then you appreciate the amount of research and information presented in each page of his work. I realize they're not historically accountable, but they contribute to an important discussion that I think are invaluable today!

    After the third read of this book since it's publication I'm reminded of its message; wisdom is revealed to those open and ready to hear it. What a great fictional account of something we should all grasp. Bravo Dan Brown.

    Quick and easy read... With a few good curve balls. Brown's pacing is great,and while I would hardly call his characters "deep" or "well-rounded" Lost Symbol is enjoyable. While Brown isn't the intellectual challenge of Arturo Perez-Reverte or Carlos Ruiz Zafón he does squeeze the esoteric for as much mileage as anyone out there. Angels and Demon and Da Vinci Code dealt with the Catholic Church and their esoterica, this one is all American Founders Masonic connections. Right wing nut jobs would boil over if they paid attention to the idea that the countries great minds were more about the universal truths than about Christianity. The novel does make we want to go see some of the amazing features of our Capital city. Overall, Brown has produced another quick read that at least gets the brain thinking about some challenging ideas while keeping a steady rate of twists and turns.
