    Description

    The Lost Symbol, the stunning follow-up to The Da Vinci Code, is a masterstroke of storytelling - a deadly race through a real-world labyrinth of codes and unseen truths...all under the watchful eye of a terrifying villain. Set within the unseen tunnels and temples of Washington, D.C., The Lost Symbol accelerates through a startling landscape toward an unthinkable finale.

    Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to deliver an evening lecture in the U.S. Capitol Building. Within minutes of his arrival, the night takes a bizarre turn. A disturbing object - artfully encoded with five ancient symbols - is discovered in the Capitol Building. The object is an ancient invitation, meant to usher its recipient into a long-lost world of hidden esoteric wisdom. And when Langdon's mentor Peter Solomon - prominent Mason and philanthropist - is kidnapped, Langdon's only hope of saving Peter is to accept this invitation and follow wherever it leads him. Langdon finds himself plunged into a clandestine world of Masonic secrets, hidden history, and never-before-seen locations...all of which seem to be dragging him toward a single, inconceivable truth.

    The Lost Symbol is exactly what Dan Brown's fans have been waiting for...his most thrilling novel yet.

    ©2009 Dan Brown (P)2009 Random House Audio

    Commentaires

    "[I]mpossible to put down....Mr. Brown was writing sensational visual scenarios long before his books became movie material. This time he again enlivens his story with amazing imagery....Thanks to him, picture postcards of the capital's most famous monuments will never be the same....In the end it is Mr. Brown's sweet optimism, even more than Langdon's sleuthing and explicating, that may amaze his readers most." ( The New York Times)
    "Thrilling, entertaining....Robert Langdon goes for another roller-coaster ride - this time in a hunt for a Masonic treasure in Washington, D.C." ( Los Angeles Times)

    In love with books again

    I havent enjoyed a good book in quite a long time. I grabbed this just because it was on the Best Seller list. I had never read or watched the Davinci Code. I LOVED this book and I love Robert Langdon. I love the symbolism mixed with religion and Masonry. Since reading this book I went back and grabbed Angels n Demons which I enjoyed equally. Davinci Code and me have a date next weekend while on family vacation. I find the books very easy to read, without too much filler. I personally can live without the few times where Dan Brown crosses reality over to futuristic transportaion, fuels and weapons. I much prefer stories that teeter right on the edge of reality making me question the fine line of what is believeable. Overall though... a great book. PC

    Excellent!

    This was a great book. Very fast paced and full of interesting information. I thought that the first book would be a really hard book to top, but it really did a good job in following up the Di Vinci Code.

    Just what should be expected from Dan Brown

    This is just as entertaining as Dan Brown's other books. The scenario is typical of his writing.

    Disappointing

    The book starts off well enough, but by the end of the first third of the book you will have already figured out who the bad-guy really is and how that came about. Many of the characters are portrayed as incredibly inept (or stupid). By the time you are two thirds through the book you wish it would just end. When it finally does end, it doesn't end but preaches (or drones) on and on and on. Contrived and predictable is a good description of the book.

    He wrote The Da Vinci Code?

    Boring, boring, boring. Needed some serious editing. If you like DC architecture and history, you might like this implausible story. As suggested, the bible could be more entertaining.

    Disappointing

    I couldn't wait for this book to become available, and I downloaded it immediately. I loved "Angels and Demons" and "The Davinci Code". Unfortunately, this book really fell short. The facts are interesting, but I never felt myself "sitting on the edge of my seat". I still don't see the big "national security" issue. It was so overblown that it was a let down when it was revealed. Likewise, the big twist in the story was fairly obvious by the time I was half way through the book. I think it is worth the credit. It held my attention, but it doesn't even come close to his previous works.

    Not his best

    Although a big fan, I was not impressed with this read. Too much story for such a let down in the end.

    Preachy

    Loved his other books, but this one...not so much...Long on detail...repeated over and over and over again just in case you missed it the first 10 times. Cookie cutter action...same old formula with different names and places. Very preachy...is he trying to start a new religion?

    Enjoyed

    This novel is quite good. If readers attempt to go into this book with the idea it is a non-fiction work, the reader will be greatly disappointed.

    Dan Brown is a good story teller. Paul Michael is a fantastic narrator.

    Dan Brown delivers again!

    If you could sum up The Lost Symbol in three words, what would they be?

    If I could sum up any novel in three words, I would put a lot of authors out of business. I could, however, describe my reaction in three words : riveting action thriller.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Lost Symbol?

    There were so many, but if I had to choose one it would be when Robert Langdon was placed in the coffin and it began filling with liquid. I would spoil the story if I said more, but as in real life, our hero's don't always have Houdini's escape skills.

    Which character – as performed by Paul Michael – was your favorite?

    Robert Langdon was of course my favorite character. He is the Sherlock Holmes of symbolism, and as always his brain rather than his braun gets him out of his predicaments.

    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did not have any extreme reaction to this book other than pure enjoyment. There were moments of excitement, wonder, sadness, happiness, ect. Just as in real life, no one emotion dominated the entire book.

    Any additional comments?

    I have enjoyed all three of Dan Brown's Robert Langdon books. While I tell myself I will check out some of the information presented in these books, I have yet to do so. Maybe it is better for the story that I don't. Just the possibility of them being true enhances the story and makes me look forward to the next Robert Langdon adventure.

    Gutes Hörbuch, nicht so gutes Buch

    Das Hörbuch war von der Tonqualität und den Sprechern her sehr gut. Der Roman an sich war dagegen nicht so spannend und empfehlenswert, wie z.B. Illuninati. Es hat mehrere Anläufe gebraucht um über die erste Hörstunde zu kommen.

    Grauenhaft

    Eines der schlechtesten Bücher, die ich seit langem gelesen / gehört habe.
    Langweilig, sich ständig wiederholend, schlecht geschrieben.
    Nach drei Vierteln des Buches ist die Story eigentlich fertig (die auch nicht im mindesten mit vorherigen Büchern standhalten kann), aber es folgen immer noch 1 Stunde pseudo-intellektuellem Geschwafel, das das ganze Buch durchzieht, aber immer klingt, wie bei Wikipedia abgeschrieben...
    Nicht zu empfehlen, auch wenn der Leser echt gut ist...

    Wieder mal ein echter Dan Brown

    Bei den Büchern von Dan Brown fasziniert mich immer wieder seine Fähigkeit die Städte, Straßen und Gebäude so treffen zu beschreiben. Man fühlt sich dorthin versetzt. Wer den einen oder anderen Ort schon besucht hat lernt nachträglich noch wichtige Fakten. Ich nehme mir bei jedem Buich vor, dass ich, wenn ich mal an den Ort des Geschehens fahre, sein Buch dazu nochmal lese / höre um mir eine art Reiseführer zu basteln.Die Handlung ist Perfekt. Spannend nach den ersten Seiten und überraschend bis zum Ende. Ken Follett hätte noch eine Liebesgeschicht oder zumindest eine heiße, genauestens beschriebene Romanze eingebaut. All das braucht Dan Brown nicht. Robert Langton ist mal wieder unabsichtlich in ein Abenteuer geschlittert . Mehr darf man vorab eigentlich nicht preis geben.

    Alter Wein in alten Schläuchen

    Das Buch ist ueber weite Strecken langatmig und vorhersehbar. Die obligatorische Schnitzeljagd wirkt arg gezwungen und bereitet den Eindruck, der Autor hakt eine Liste von Storymerkmalen ab, die seine vorherigen Buecher so erfolgreich gemacht haben.
    Die Charaktere spulen robotergleich wieder und wieder ihre Verhaltensmuster ab: Auf der einen Seite die Wissenden/Gläubigen die immer nur in Rätseln sprechen, auf der anderen Seite der Skeptiker der sich gefuehlte 50 mal ueberraschen lassen muss.

    Wer die anderen Dan Brown Buecher mochte wird sich sicher auch dieses kaufen, allerdings wuerde ich es nicht weiterempfehlen.

    Schwach

    Oha, das soll "his most thrilling novel yet" sein? Das Buch beginnt spannend, verliert sich aber sehr schnell in wissenschaftliche Abhandlungen, trägen Dialogen in eigentlich aufregenden Momentan für die Protagonisten und einer sehr zähen Story. Das bisher schlechteste Buch von Dan Brown!

    Zu langatmig

    Ein durchaus spannendes Buch, das jedoch immer wieder in langatmige Beschreibungen ausartet, die teilweise unglaubwürdig sind. Die breit dargestellten philosophischen Betrachtungen muten für einen deutschen Leser etwas seltsam an. Die doch etwas übertrieben positive Darstellung der Freimaurer mit ihren offensichtlich tiefgründigen Ritualen sind sicherlich nicht jedermanns Geschmack. Die eigentliche Handlung ist sehr wohl spannend, das philosophische und rituelle Drumherum wirkt jedoch übertrieben und teilweise deplatziert.

    Na ja...

    Genau das passiert, wenn man einen Bestseller erwartet, der Autor aber nicht abliefert. Der Roman wird zum Welterfolg vermarktet, doch enttäuscht mit alten Mechanismen und - mal ehrlich - wer will immer noch was über die Sch.... Mickey Mouse Uhr von Prof. Langdon hören??!!

    spannend und langatmig! captivating but too long

    Dan Brown once again knew how to capture his audience at least in the first half. Another thing: All this is to happen in 24h? A bit unrealistic - anyhow it is a pleasure to listen to when you have time and nothing better to do.

    Mal wieder hat es Dan Brown verstanden seine Leser/Hörer zu fesseln - zumindest in der ersten Hälfte. Nur: Das alles soll innerhalb von 24h passieren? Leider etwas unrealistisch - trotzdem ein Hörgenuss, wenn man Zeit und nichts besseres zu tun hat.
