Lost Symbol, The (Paperback) Price: Rs.231

The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown is a mind-numbing, racy thriller set within a 12-hour period that sends the protagonist, Robert Langdon, on a wild race to find the keys that would unlock the secrets of freemasonry.

Summary Of The Book

Robert Langdon, a symbologist from Harvard is invited by his mentor and 33rd Degree Mason, Peter Solomon, to give a lecture at the US Capitol. But when Langdon reaches the place, all he finds is the severed hand of his mentor. It does not take long for Langdon to identify what message the severed hand is trying to convey.

But there are some questions that plague the Harvard symbologist. Who disfigured Solomon? Why did they leave behind the cut hand? Soon, Langdon figures out that the only way to answer these questions was to follow the hints and clues left behind by Solomon’s tormentor. This decision puts the historian in a deadly race in which he has to cope with dark secrets, complex codes and hidden truths before he can face the villain and find an authentic answer to his questions. Will Langdon come out unscathed or will he be lost in the whole jumble?

In a setting replete with secret chambers, temples and tunnels in Washington D.C., The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown is a heart-pounding, lightning-paced and intelligent story with loads of thrills, drama, suspense and surprises nearly on every page. The story essentially is the journey of Langdon towards ‘The Truth’, a symbol that remained concealed under a sham of surprises for several years.

Published in 2010, The Lost Symbol sold over 1 million copies on the first day of its release which made it the quickest selling novel for adults in history. Till date, the thrilling fiction has sold over 30 million copies worldwide and it remained on The New York Times bestseller list for as many as 29 weeks. The novel has been taken up by Columbia Pictures for adaptation into a film.

I GOT LOST IN LOST SYMBOL

I was impressed by the Da Vinci Code, liked Angels and Demons and had high expectations from The Lost Symbol.
Sadly all my expectations fell flat on my face as I found the storyline of Lost Symbol to be insipid, predictable and boring.
Dan Brown uses the same writing style of his previous works...jet setting the protagonist from one end of the world to another and weaving in endless historical information in between.

I hardly ever leave a book midway but in this case I was left with no other option. I gave up reading when Dan Brown started giving a lecture on various architectural relics and their hidden messages while the protagonist is descending into the endless stairs of the basement of the Capitol Hill. If my memory serves me right he started descending the stairs after 60 pages and was still descending even after 130 pages. I have infinite patience but not to the level Mr Brown expects his readers to keep.If you are interested in hidden symbols, their meanings, free masons et al I suggest you read "Holy Blood and Holy Grail".

I am not sure how the story ended and frankly I don't give a damn...some of my friends told me the ending was crass...I couldn't agree more with them.

Speedy Read - Ordinary Language - Interesting subjects - huge anticlimax !

It all started with Da Vinci's code! The frame of the plot remained same ever since. The Lost Symbol is no exception.
At one point, you feel the author purposefully fooled you just in order to bring in an element of surprise later.
However, a regular Brown Reader would've guessed the plot well before it all unveiled.
Yet, I would recommend this book as it touched some topics which I often thought about or read about but never found them all at one place. It surely is interesting in its own way. It provokes your thought if you read it more than for its plot.
An honest attempt to converge a humongous pile of topics into one single book.

GOOD STORY BUT HACKNEYED AND PREACHING CLIMAX

well, first point , it was not as good as previous two. nowhere near them.

second, Dan Brown created so much subsets of ongoing actions into the story that at some point it all became a hodgepodge web of confusions. " readers may get lost "

third, at some point Dan brown seemed to contradict/ fight with his own plot he put to create the base of the story, which made the book complex. although i cant specify or recall if there are any such facts except one - why d hell did sato chose langdon over bellamy when she flew from kalorama heights to the house of the temple???? clearly bellamy was a 33rd degree mason as stated initially in the book and he knew the ways in house of temple better than langdon. so why d hell he just waited in malakh's house with katherine. where as langdon was never been to the upper room below oculus as described.
another, why malakh thought that peter would kill him to stop data transmission and save katherine, i mean even if he would kill him, he cudnt save katherine.

finally, dan brown seemed to struggled in the ending with the story, the last few pages were full of limitless preachings.

it seemed like Dan bROWN wanted to preach us a lecture on god, bible, and mind which he did through this book.
the plot was not that impressive except introduction of some bizarre twists in story to maintain the hold.
the story presentation in the end was not good and boring.
I am clearly not impressed by the story, but the message it revealed about human mind's ability, and else was kinda cool...

P.S. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME ON IT IF U R EXPECTING A DAMN THRILLING STORY, THE BOOK IS MORE FOCUSSED ON ITS PREACHINGS/ MESSAGE it wants to give RATHER THAN STORY AS I SEE IT.

Terrible Letdown

The book contains nothing but unwanted history that has almost nothing to do with the plot. I read angels and demons the novel was something with suspense,technology,history that correctly added to the plot,a novel which gav every bit of entertainment, and i would sadly say that this one doesnt give anything, the plot was a serious let down, the suspense was the worst, ending was horrible, the novel doesnot keep the reader engaged with it, nor does it have any beautiful part in it, the history included in it was almost 7 times actually required to mae the point. If the unwanted historical briefing was avoided I think that the novel would have ended in less than 150 pages. The climax was greatly dragged. so pity of the author. I think that he really has lost his ability in making a masterpiece. Almost 70 percent of the book is history. i am happy i didnt buy this book. Nor will i recommend anyone. If you want real Dan Brown adventure go for angels and demons or davinchi code. I prefer angels and demons.

Dan Brown like a Dan Brown

After reading Da Vinci Code and Digital Fortress back-to-back, I was sick of the monotonous plotting style and have given a long gap to read Dan Brown. But this book made me realize I did miss reading Dan Brown.

The positives of this book is that it contains all the signature ingredients of Brown's work like crypts, science & technology, covert groups and their rituals, conspiracies, religion & mankind etc that are perfectly organized in a high paced race against time chase.

Unfortunately, the same goes with the cons. Though the author tried to play his cards a bit differently from his previous works (which is actually a big relief), one can still feel the prosaic narration containing 1 villain, 1 secret, 1 hero fighting against many odds to decipher the truth. Added to that, the awesome progress of deciphering the codes leading to an disproportionally interesting destiny subsides the thrill. And the attempt Mr.Brown makes to prove his point adds 60 odd pages that are mostly redundant and feel draggy at the end.
