The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown Book Summary

#1 WORLDWIDE BESTSELLER • An intelligent, lightning-paced thriller set within the hidden chambers, tunnels, and temples of Washington, D.C., with surprises at every turn. • Don’t miss the Peacock original series Dan Brown’s The Lost Symbol!

Famed Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon answers an unexpected summons to appear at the U.S. Capitol Building. His plans are interrupted when a disturbing object—artfully encoded with five symbols—is discovered in the building. Langdon recognizes in the find an ancient invitation into a lost world of esoteric, potentially dangerous wisdom.

When his mentor Peter Solomon—a long-standing Mason and beloved philanthropist—is kidnapped, Langdon realizes that the only way to save Solomon is to accept the mystical invitation and plunge headlong into a clandestine world of Masonic secrets, hidden history, and one inconceivable truth ... all under the watchful eye of Dan Brown's most terrifying villain to date.

The Lost Symbol (Dan Brown) Book Reviews

EntertainingQuick and easy read... With a few good curve balls. Brown's pacing is great,and while I would hardly call his characters "deep" or "well-rounded" Lost Symbol is enjoyable. While Brown isn't the intellectual challenge of Arturo Perez-Reverte or Carlos Ruiz Zafón he does squeeze the esoteric for as much mileage as anyone out there. Angels and Demon and Da Vinci Code dealt with the Catholic Church and their esoterica, this one is all American Founders Masonic connections. Right wing nut jobs would boil over if they paid attention to the idea that the countries great minds were more about the universal truths than about Christianity. The novel does make we want to go see some of the amazing features of our Capital city. Overall, Brown has produced another quick read that at least gets the brain thinking about some challenging ideas while keeping a steady rate of twists and turns..Score: 3/5

The Lost SymbolThe book is loaded with very important information. However the plot is along the same lines as the other two books and the story drags on unnecessarily. The prose is somewhat primitive and the whole story could have been compressed into half the size in my humble opinion, and I am far from an authority on English literature. I would have preferred to see this story told in the style of George Orwell. However Dan Brown has obviously done a tremendous amount of research and for that we should thank him. I certainly hope all this information that he has so painstakingly brought to light for the public does not go to waste and will lead to more awareness and gratitude..Score: 4/5

Don't bother3/4 was interesting but just ok. Ending was extremely disappointing..Score: 2/5

Fascinating read but a bit boringAll the lore, history, and talk about Noetics was very fascinating, but the writing was a bit dry and boring in parts. Started out well, but the "big reveal" was a tad obvious. After reading "The Da Vinci Code" and "Angels and Demons" this was a bit of a let down..Score: 3/5

PredictableIf you've read any of his other books, you can guess what's going to happen. Very formulaic. Also, I find that he needs to explain a lot of these obscure historical facts and theories and it kind of detracts from the story. Not sure if it's really necessary..Score: 3/5

DisappointingWhile well-written, the plot is too thin - and overburdened with technical details. Brown should focus more on the story and less on the history lesson. While I loved DaVinci Code and Angels & Demons, this one was weak - I don't recommend it..Score: 3/5

Once again...Another amazing book. The narrative lured me into the story, and I found myself saying, "ok, one more chapter and then I'll go to sleep." I don't want to reveal details, because it'd ruin your reading, but definitely check this one out. You won't be disappointed..Score: 5/5

Captivating read until the endMost of the book is very good with an enthralling storyline that holds your interest. The last 70 or 80 pages are a philosophical ramble that doesn’t make much sense. The book seems to lose its train of thought or maybe just spends too much time proselytizing the author’s theory on the human mind and its Potential to transform man into God..Score: 4/5

My favorite of the series!Dan Brown may reuse the plot and storyline in each novel. But it's an exciting storyline! And if you're like me, then you appreciate the amount of research and information presented in each page of his work. I realize they're not historically accountable, but they contribute to an important discussion that I think are invaluable today!.Score: 5/5

Great, then ugh.This book was wonderful almost all the way to egg end, but then... It happened. I found myself in a righteous and religious confused lack of fact fest. It seemed that he was shoving ideas in my head. He didn’t have to do this. The Lost Symbol was ruined for me. His worst book by far..Score: 3/5

The Lost SymbolA very thought provoking work written in typical Dan Brown style. Those who feel they have "faith" but don't necessarily believe in man's current collective interpretation of "organized religion" will find it particularly enlightening..Score: 5/5

Best Book in the SeriesI thought I didn’t remember much of this book, but once I got going, it all started coming back to me. The book is so good, and part of that is this time around Langdon is fighting for friends, people he actually has relationships with and knew before the events of the book. That might make this book the best one in the series (although, admittedly, I haven’t read Origin yet)..Score: 5/5

Another great read from Dan BrownIt was supposed to be my reading book for my upcoming spring vacation. I looked inside to get a feel for it, three days after that peek I have finished way, before my actual vacation. Now, I have nothing to read during my vacation. It was as interesting as always..Score: 5/5

Great for 3/4 then a huge letdownThe first 3/4 of this book was very good, and it felt as if this was another DaVinci Code, but then Brown got to the climax of the story and had nothing. So the ending is just a big cop out that completely contradicts everything that the story told about the Masons and the entire story up to this point with a big nothing. No secrets, no point, nothing. It then ends with a chapter of pointless ramblings that have little to do with the story. I'll be hard pressed to read another one of his books..Score: 2/5

Misogynistic and too many errorsOf course a fantastical work of fiction will be, well, fiction, but it should at least be accurate when describing a real place. You can’t see the Jefferson from Memorial Bridge, you can’t go South on 15th St, and so many more! Also, the book quietly drives home the point that the world’s greatest knowledge is accessible to and preserved by MEN through exclusively male institutions (Masons, the church for so long, lists of only male scientists, philosophers, etc). Finally, the “threat” driving so much of the plot is weak at best, and that’s where Brown finally lost me. **spoiler alert** Protecting a bunch of privileged mostly white men, in my mind, is not a national security issue..Score: 2/5

Food for "THOUGHT"It's almost as though Dan Brown is privy to the secrets of the Ancient Mysteries. With unbelievable mastery and amazing story-telling, he weaves a nail biting, page turning saga, out of the most basic of all human processes - thought, and sets it in a location which is so everyday. A must read..... For those who understand, no explanation is needed. For those who do not understand, no explanation is possible..Score: 5/5

The lost symbolCompelling, fast paced, enlightening, fascinating. Although what is presented as a new discovery of belief has been a core of Mormon doctrine for 185 years. Dan Brown delivers a wonderful final summation attempting to reconcile much of religious and scientific thought. One odd theory stood out though, that which attempted to explain how thought could exert influence by recognizing it has mass, and therefore at least some gravity. Einstein recognized mass and energy are the same thing only at different levels of acceleration, thoughts are just as likely, if not more so, to have influence because they are energy as because the have mass..Score: 4/5
