Publisher's Summary

The Lost Symbol, the stunning follow-up to The Da Vinci Code, is a masterstroke of storytelling - a deadly race through a real-world labyrinth of codes and unseen truths...all under the watchful eye of a terrifying villain. Set within the unseen tunnels and temples of Washington, D.C., The Lost Symbol accelerates through a startling landscape toward an unthinkable finale.

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 - artfully encoded with five ancient symbols - 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 Peter Solomon - prominent Mason and philanthropist - is kidnapped, Langdon's only hope of saving Peter is to accept this invitation and follow wherever it leads him. Langdon finds himself 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.

The Lost Symbol is exactly what Dan Brown's fans have been waiting for...his most thrilling novel yet.

What the Critics Say

"[I]mpossible to put down....Mr. Brown was writing sensational visual scenarios long before his books became movie material. This time he again enlivens his story with amazing imagery....Thanks to him, picture postcards of the capital's most famous monuments will never be the same....In the end it is Mr. Brown's sweet optimism, even more than Langdon's sleuthing and explicating, that may amaze his readers most." (The New York Times)
"Thrilling, entertaining....Robert Langdon goes for another roller-coaster ride - this time in a hunt for a Masonic treasure in Washington, D.C." (Los Angeles Times)

    "Totally fictional and so repetitive."

    I couldn't wait to finish this book. It just seemed to go on and on and on forever. This book made me sick to my stomach literally! I won't read another book of this author if it has to do with all this mythical crap. This is just an indoctrination into thinking the way the author wants you to think.

    "Pot boiler delivers New Age religious viewpoint"

    Like all Dan Brown books, this is a fairly predictable pot boiler, although in this book more than his others, Brown delivers a religious tract echoing new age beliefs that man needs to discover that he is his own God.

    "Intense but..."

    This book is intense but goes over the top for me a number of times. I just don't know how to be more specific without being a "spoiler". There was always something to keep my interest but much of the time I was asking myself, "Why do I keep reading?"

    "Disappointed"

    I was disappointed in this book. He has done such an amazing job on the first two and this one just did not live up to them.

    "To Predictable"

    The story was ok but waaaay to predictable. I had it figured out after a couple hours and then had to sit through the rest waiting until the bad guy revealed himself. It would have been better if Langdon had figured it out. This was just kind of boring. Plus the "facts" were sooo many that it got a bit confusing. I think it may have been better to read this as my mind tends to wander when listening.

    "Always a Winner"

    I have always enjoyed Dan Brown's books. I never have to worry that I will get bored with a book of his. He does a lot research and crafts it with fiction, to create wonderful novels. The Lost Symbol with all the intricate plots leads to a great final conclusion. Thanks for a great read.
