    The first novel in The Century Trilogy, it follows the fates of five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh - as they move through the world-shaking dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women's suffrage.

    Story

    I think this book was better than pillers of the earth, and that's saying something. It was absolutely fascinating to read about life in the early 20th century. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and REALLY hope book 2 comes out soon. Don't worry, book 1 finishes at a good point, you aren't left with a cliff hanger.

    I read the abridged version of this book and regret it, the book was so good I wondered what I may have missed by going with the abridged version.

    Israeli art restorer and occasional secret agent Gabriel Allon has a problem. He finds a prominent Swiss banker dead in front of his Raphael, and he's the prime suspect. After some diplomatic intervention, Allon is freed. However, the banker's daughter tells him that her father's French Impressionist paintings, acquired under dubious circumstances during WWII, have been stolen by the murderers. Once Allon knows about the wartime misdeeds, he is pursued by a shadowy killer known only as "the Englishman."

    What an awesome book! I loved it. I can't wait to read the rest of Daniel Silva's books.

    I'm reading the books in order, and I'm not reading "The Confessor" which is equally as good as "The English Assassin".

    Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to deliver an evening lecture in the U.S. Capitol. Within minutes of his arrival, the night takes a bizarre turn. A disturbing object is discovered in the Capitol Building. The object is an ancient invitation, meant to usher its recipient into a long-lost world of hidden esoteric wisdom. And when Langdon's mentor is kidnapped, Langdon's only hope of saving him is to accept this invitation and follow wherever it leads him.

    Overall

    I think the Da Vinci code was so good (5 out of 5) that my expectations were really high for Dan Brown's next book.

    The Lost symbol just wasn't that good, the book was WAY too long, and Dr. Langdon was way too much of a smart arse.
