Description

Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is invited to give a lecture in Washington, D.C. by his mentor, Peter Solomon. Langdon is also asked to bring with him a small package that Solomon entrusted to him years ago. However, upon his arrival at the Capitol, he receives a call from a man who claims to have Solomon in his power and will kill him unless Langdon helps him find the location of the Ancient Mysteries: artifacts that are guarded by the Freemasons and which can reveal the secrets of history, religion and ‘life’ itself.             

 As with Brown’s previous Robert Langdon novels, there is a heroine and a ruthless killer, there are maps to follow and riddles to solve, there are secret societies and conspiracy theories, there are refreshing looks at art and philosophy, as well as a major plot twist or two. Brown has his critics, but he also sells a lot of books because he is a skilled and entertaining thriller-writer: he draws you into a story, and keeps you turning the pages.

The Lost Symbol, while having strong historical and religious aspects to it, is perhaps the most forward-looking and spiritual book of the Robert Langdon series: Brown explores various topics of esoteric knowledge, including ‘the intention experiment’ and the 2012 Mayan prophecies, and also seeks to harmonize this with science and technology.
