LoveReading View on The Lost Symbol

The new bestseller from The Da Vinci Code author is about Freemasonry, with the same mix of obscure history and fast-paced action we have come to expect.  I think these are perfect aeroplane reads, they engross you quickly and keep you distracted for the length of the flight.  Some of you may be put off by the incredible amount of hype that surrounds all Dan Brown’s work, but if you can set that aside and just enjoy a compulsive thriller you won’t be disappointed.

The Lost Symbol Synopsis

It was the Capitol Building, Washington DC. Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon believes he is here to give a lecture. He is wrong. Within minutes of his arrival, a shocking object is discovered. It is a gruesome invitation into an ancient world of hidden wisdom. When Langdon's mentor, Peter Solomon - prominent mason and philanthropist - is kidnapped, Langdon realizes that his only hope of saving his friend's life is to accept this mysterious summons. It is to take him on a breathless chase through Washington's dark history. All that was familiar is changed into a shadowy, mythical world in which Masonic secrets and never-before-seen revelations seem to be leading him to a single impossible and inconceivable truth.
