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.

About the Author

New Hampshire born author, Dan Brown, is most famous for his tremendously successful novel, The Da Vinci Code. He relates the treasure hunt sort of story within a 24-hour period of time, using themes of keys, symbols, codes, cryptography, and conspiracy theories. They also many times feature historical themes and controversial Christianity motifs. His parents involved their children in the family dynamics of using codes, cyphers, crossword puzzles, and treasure hunts to tie together math, music, and languages. Brown's growing up years gave an excellent base for his future writings.

Brown was inspired to be a writer of thrillers after reading Sidney Sheldon's novel The Doomsday Conspiracy. He became a full-time writer in 1996. Angels and Demons was his second book published and was the first novel to include the lead character, Robert Langdon. His first few novels had very little success, but the fourth novel, The Da Vinci Code proved to be one of the most popular books of all time. With that success, his first three books also became very well received with all four novels being listed on the New York Times best sellers list at one time! The next novel, The Lost Symbol, sold over 1,000,000 copies its first day.

Since Brown's books are heavily researched, it would sometimes take two years to finish a novel. In 2006 The Da Vinci Code and Inferno were adapted to screenplays, and were very controversial. Brown has stated that he has potentially twelve books in line for the future.

I have listened to literally hundreds of books on cd. This book is wild, colorful, incredibly interesting, suspenseful and entertaining. Loved it.

If youre looking for a book to read on an airplane, this is a good one for that. While not on the same level as Angels & Demons its still enjoyable enough to get lost in for a time.

AudiobooksNow review by Pamela on 2012-07-03 12:43:22

Fascinating book! Another great mystery. Like in DaVinci, a lot of hidden information is brought to light. This time there is stunning information to learn about our Founding Fathers, The Masons and Washington, D.C. Im ready to read it again!
