The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown - Review


My husband bought me a copy of Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol which I hardly put down until consumed.

The setting is mostly in Washington, D. C. and many of the national monuments are described in detail, inside and out, which gives this read the added dimension of adding to one's knowledge of the nation's capitol.

Then there are the dimensions of art, science and religion and the esoteric traditions, plus the up and coming science of noetics that are explored and woven into the plot in very intricate and important ways for humanity's ultimate benefit.

In the opening page before the Prologue is this sentence: "All rituals, science, artwork and monuments in this novel are real." Reading that before beginning the fictional story really added to my sense that this is not just a book for entertainment, but for personal growth on the path to enlightenment.

For those interested in science and spirituality The Lost Symbol will surely add a broadened outlook, or at least an assurance that the masses who read this book will be exposed to diverse points of view, perhaps sparking their own desire to look within, sincerely.

The book covers a 10 hour time period, but has its share of shocking blood and guts scenes for those who are expecting to read an adventure tale. Dan Brown shows he is able to incorporate many levels of interest in the tale he has spun.

Or perhaps he was inspired to write this book from his deeper insight in a way that would attract those normally reading mainly futuristic and intrigue genres.

In summary, many levels of interest are covered to keep the reader guessing and learning on a plethora of levels. Yes, creativity still exists.

Highest recommendation and congratulations goes to Dan Brown for The Lost Symbol.

Check out Dan Brown's other books, too.
