As you all probably know by now, yours truly is a bookworm. And today, I’d like to recommend a book for you guys to read- the newly released The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown.
I’ve been an avid fan of Dan Brown’s masterpiece since his Angels and Demons since year 2000. I’m actually a hardcore fan of the Indiana Jones Adventure, but since Henry Jones Jr. can no longer entertain me cuz Mr. George Lucas no longer goes bla bla about him, I have to be contented with Dan Brown’s writing about Prof Robert Langdon who unfortunately do not carry whip and don a Fedora hat in all of his adventures for me to drool on. ( Harrison Ford is so hot as Indiana Jones!)
Anyway, in comparison to his previous works, Angels and Demons as well as The Da Vinci Code, I find that The Lost Symbol is quite mediocre to my standard. The plot and storytelling style gives you deja vu if you’ve read his previous work, The Da Vinci Code. Nothing new there… but it is a good read if you like mystery, nevertheless so it’s quite safe if you guys wanna give it a shot.
Like Angels and Demons, published in 2000, and The Da Vinci Code, The Lost Symbol solves puzzles, analyzes paintings and reveals forgotten histories — so that Dan Brown’s protagonist, Robert Langdon, can find a legendary Masonic treasure despite special ops squads that are chasing after him and a bizarre killer who kidnapped his mentor.
One of the places in The Lost Symbol- The House of the Temple- Guarded by 17-ton sphinxes, the circa-1915 Masonic temple was designed in homage to one of seven wonders of the ancient world, the pre-Christian Mausoleum at Halicarnassus
Above is the The Freemasons’ square-and-compasses symbol adorns a wall in Washington, D.C.’s Masonic House of The Temple-the scene of strange rituals in The Lost Symbol.
For those who wanted to read The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown but find that the book is quite expensive, kindly email me at email@example.com or leave your email here in my comment box and I’ll send you an e-book version of The Lost Symbol. It is in .pdf format though, you’ll need an Adobe Acrobat reader to read the e-book.
