Book Review – The lost Symbol

Well, I must say writing about something which is already well known and internationally acclaimed is very tough. I just joined blogging; was wondering what would be my very first blog. And at the same I am reading a book. So I thought I will start my blogging by writing review about that book.  The book is none other than The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown.

I am not an avid reader. But I like to read sometimes. I came across this book many times. So this time I finally I thought I will read this time for sure. It took me two weeks to complete this.  I started just to kill the time but I must say interest went on and on with every page. This book like other books of Dan Brown is a masterstroke of storytelling – a deadly race through real world labyrinth of codes, puzzles, unseen truth and reveals forgotten histories. It is a thriller set in Washington DC., after the events of The Da Vinci Code, and relies on Freemasonry



 I must say this book is a desperate attempt to ingratiate youself with the Masons, religion and symbols. Also explains about Noetic Science, Breathable oxygenated liquid, House of temple, Bible, Hand of mysteries Bhagwat Gita, Karamas. Some of the lines I really liked and would like to share with all of you.

For instance, every religion consists of three things A (Assure), B (Believe) and C (Convert) so we can say that is the ABC of every religion. Secondly, Knowledge is good it is under right hand (in context with freemasonry), other it is of no use.

The Lost Symbol accelerates through a startling landscape toward an unthinkable finale. At last , I would say Mr. Brown has mastered the art of blending nail-biting suspense with random arcana (from pop science to religion).

At last, Desperately waiting for the movie based on this novel. Expecting to be released by end of this year.
