Review by Arvindhan on 19th September, 2009
 
3 stars "The Lost Symbol is an awesome attempt, but it falls short"

The book involves an elaborate plot surrounding famous objects. The author has done a great deal of research, for he has a historical fact attached to almost everything REAL mentioned in the book. You may come across facts in this book that you have heard of before. For example, in Bones or in The National Treasure. But this book definitely interprets them in a unique way. Awesome employment of imagination by the author.

The author has used short chapters, each ending with a so-called gripping moment. Nice use of italicized sentences to show what the characters were thinking.

The book involves a really good plot-twist – sort of like the one involving Jim Gordon in The Dark Knight or Barty Crouch Jr in The Goblet of Fire. Pages 320–420 of the book were the best – people running around, clues coming alive in every direction, and a race to save the nation. But the final 30 pages were a COMPLETE let down. They were too dragged out and I kept getting lost.

PS: I'll still recommend this book to my friends, but I'll advice them to keep their expectations short.

4 stars "Complicated YET Interesting Book"

Once again, Dan Brown made it. A great book with lots of tricky parts, so it is quite complicated in some parts. If you like other Dan Brown's books, you will like this as well

3 stars "95% Great 5% Average"

Only just got round to reading this over NY, most of its really good with a well thought out plot and strong characters.
BUT as others have said the end is pretty disapointing; too complicated and religious.

Description

“Impossible to put down…Another mind-blowing Robert Langdon story” New York Times

Famed Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon answers an unexpected summons to appear at the U.S. Capitol Building. His planned lecture is interrupted when a disturbing object—artfully encoded with five symbols—is discovered in the building. Langdon recognizes in the find an ancient invitation into a lost world of esoteric, potentially dangerous wisdom.

When his mentor Peter Solomon—a longstanding Mason and beloved philanthropist—is kidnapped, Langdon realizes that the only way to save Solomon is to accept the mystical invitation and plunge headlong into a clandestine world of Masonic secrets, hidden history, and one inconceivable truth… all under the watchful eye of Dan Brown's most terrifying villain to date.

Set within the hidden chambers, tunnels, and temples of Washington, D.C., The Lost Symbol is an intelligent, lightning-paced story with surprises at every turn.

  • “Thrilling and entertaining, like the experience on a roller coaster.”—Los Angeles Times
  • “…the deadly chase careens back and forth, across, above and below the nation's capital, darting from revelation to revelation, pausing only to explain some piece of wondrous, historical esoterica. Jealous thriller writers will despair, doubters and nay-sayers will be proved wrong, and readers will rejoice: Dan Brown has done it again.” Publishers Weekly
