The Lost Symbol

It's the first day of June!!! You know what this means? a couple more days and it's back to school! As for me, I shall start this month with a new post ;)


Before I became a fan of Dan Brown I've heard a lot of controversies pertaining to his work. How he wrote such revelations behind Leonardo Da Vinci's "Last Supper" painting in his popular book "The Da Vinci Code" which stirs a commotion from the church. How he "mocked" such teachings and made people question their faith. That alone catches my attention. It was during my college years that I was able to read his work and that was "Angels and Demons" and after reading it that's the time I became a fan and I started to read his work especially when the stories centers about Robert Langdon.

As for this post, I'm going to post about, if I'm not mistaken his third Robert Langdon series "The Lost Symbol".


Harvard University Symbologist professor Robert Langdon was invited to give a lecture at the United States Capitol building by his good friend and mentor a 33rd degree Mason Peter Solomon who is also the head of the Smithsonian Instution. However, minutes after his arrival the night suddenly takes a bizarre turn when a bloody object stands in the middle of the floor in the Capital Rotunda. Upon closer inspection, Langdon realizes two things: One, the object was art fully crafted in recreation of the Hand of Mysteries, an invitation meant to usher the recipient into the long lost world of esoteric wisdom  and two, the bloody object on the floor is the none other the severed hand of Peter Solomon which means he's in great danger.

Now, Robert has reluctantly accepted the invitation to save his friend as he follows the instructions of Peter's kidnapper. Soon, he is tangled with masonic secrets, hidden history, and places he'd never seen before which will leads him to his goal. 

Will Langdon save his friend?
Will they unmasked the perpetrator?
Will everything be turned into a lost cause?
What is the Lost Symbol?

"To live in the world without becoming aware of the meaning of the world is like wandering about in a great library without touching the books."
