The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown

Seeing an ad for the DVD release of Angels & Demons reminded me that I did not recommend Dan Brown’s newest, The Lost Symbol, that I read on my Kindle. I read it waaaay back in October. Well, most of you know that it also will be a movie; cannot wait for that.

Our favorite Professor Robert Langdon, is lured to Washington D.C. to present a last minute lecture, only to discover that is a ruse to have him search for and deliver the Ancient Mysteries in exchange for his friend’s, Peter Solomon, life. Peter is the head of the Smithsonian Institute where his daughter, Katherine, has a Noetic research. In the capitol dome Langdon finds the severed hand of Peter, tattooed Masonic symbols and pointing to the ceiling art of “The Apotheosis of Washington”. In a frantic 12-hour search through the city, Landgon and Peter’s daughter follow more clues to save his life, bizarre clues left by Mal’akh, the tattoo-covered villain. Fans will love it. I feel a need to fly to Washington and follow the clues myself. Finally readers will discover the great secret of the ancient mysteries.

ENDERS’ Rating: Fast, intense, fun to read!

    It's so nice to hear a positive review! I pre-ordered The Lost Symbol in anticipation of a great read, but then I heard so many critics pan it! I loved reading Angels & Demons! This type of genre is right up my alley! I just love all the clues, art and architecture! Thanks for a great review and putting confidence back in my purchase! (I still have to read The DaVinci Code too!)Take care,SuzanneChick with Books

    The critics did not like Star Wars either! But the public spoke.DaVinci is better than A&D, imho.I read Deception Point and Digital Fortress. DaVince is still my fave of all four.Joan
