    Description

    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.

    OK, now that's what they call a masterpiece!!

    I was reading the review of others on this book, and surely not agreed to them. I mean, just get to the book and not to the criticism, for heavens sake! This was my first encounter with Mr. Dan Brown and what an experience it was! The journey starts with a call to Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon from the office of his old pal, Peter Solomon. Throughout the inevitable journey, we soon realise that the call was not an ordinary one. Moving down the arteries and veins of Washington, D.C., the ...

    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 w...

    Cheap and Predictable Plot... An Insult!

    It seems that Dan Brown has let success of 'Da Vinci Code' go to his head. When it comes to plot and bringing it all together this work is quite pathetic.

    It seems that Brown was rehashing highpoints of 'Da Vinci Code' and served it up as the "plot" of this novel. Apparently, after years of break post his success, he couldn't be bothered to do adequate research or come up with an imaginative story. Don't even get me started on the way it ended (which I had to skip to after having read half ...

    The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown

    It was nowhere near Angels & Demons and The Da Vinci Code, but was still unputdownable. Dan Brown never disappoints.It was not that bad as many people have pointed out.Perhaps everyone would have liked it if Dan Brown wrote this before 'Angels and Demons' and 'The Da Vinci Code'.But all the fans of Dan Brown will like this book as his other books.

    Very Good plot with a mediocre climax

    Assisted with Google Maps & Images this is one more bests of Dan Brown!! The facts are all supportive in the plot and real. Lots of new secret/unknown things to be known. Although the story was very very mesmerizing and interesting thriller, the climax was not as expected and boring...atleast for me. Its a very good pass time book.

    The pages are not of high quality but decent enough. Delivery was perfect as always.

    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 Unbelievable Ancient-Scientific Book!

    If you've already read Dan Brown's book, then this one is again a typical unputdownable book for you!
    The Science and the history mentioned in this book is unbelievable to accept as true! Though it is true indeed!
    I've read all Dan Brown books, though this one is not my favorite, the science mentioned in this has just shaken me..!
    The field of Noetic Science, Isaac Newton's inventions from past and his secret letters and scientific knowledge, and the modern technologies that have been deri...

    Dan Brown nailed it, again.

    I mean like seriously. How does he manage to write such awesome books? This book completely blew my mind, just like the previous ones did. Robert Langdon, US Capitol, the Freemasons, you got the gist. This is one complete mind-blower. I highly recommend this book.

    Coming to Flipkart's even more awesome service, I ordered two other books along with this. They got delivered in 3 days. The packaging was as usual, flawless. And I simply love the small bookmarks that Flipkart drops in. Competiti...
