Summary
#1 WORLDWIDE BESTSELLER • An intelligent, lightning-paced thriller set within the hidden chambers, tunnels, and temples of Washington, D.C., with surprises at every turn. • Don’t miss the Peacock original series Dan Brown’s The Lost Symbol!

Famed Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon answers an unexpected summons to appear at the U.S. Capitol Building. His plans are interrupted when a disturbing object—artfully encoded with five symbols—is discovered in the building. Langdon recognizes in the find an ancient invitation into a lost world of esoteric, potentially dangerous wisdom.

When his mentor Peter Solomon—a long-standing Mason and beloved philanthropist—is kidnapped, Langdon realizes that the only way to save Solomon is to accept the mystical invitation and plunge headlong into a clandestine world of Masonic secrets, hidden history, and one inconceivable truth ... all under the watchful eye of Dan Brown's most terrifying villain to date.

I found some of the premises intriguing and actually checked them out on Google and found them to be true. The book is a little long and gets somewhat preachy at the end, but it's definitely worth the read

Disappointing follow-up to Angels & Demons and The Da Vinci Code. Even Paul Michael the narrator couldn't help with the listless characters and poorly thought out story line. Just when I thought I'm done - he adds one last disc where I have to listen to his preaching.

I was a little disappointed by this book. It promises more than it delivers. There were thought provoking ideas introduced that never go anywhere, and some of the characters did not meet my expectations.

Good book but got a little long winded at times - definitely worth a listen to.

I have this two stars because I wanted so much to like it (I loved The DaVinci Code), and the beginning was sort of OK. But by the end, it was just a slog. Even when the story ended, the book didn't, but turned into what I think was a long (long) statement about his personal beliefs. I don't think it's really worth your time.

I am a seeker of truth in information. I found this book, like The Divinci Code, to be wrapped with facts and a good fictional story as well very engaging. I fonXd this to have more facts in different areas. I loved his description whenin the case. How he described the weight of "The Soul" was sweet. Dan is paying attention to current science and ties it together very well with "old", too. A must read or...a must listen.

I really enjoyed this book. Lots of action and the DC setting was fun. As always, I learned a few fascinating tidbits of knowledge along the way. Much better than Digital Fortress.

Should have listened to the abridged version. it was okay...typical Dan Brown. Was neat to have it take place in DC since i live in that area

I thought this book was a snooze. It is very long-winded and preachy. It has Brown's usual sinister antagonist and some good parts but overall, not as good as his previous books.

Loved the Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons, but this one, to me, is even better! Great plot twists and a thought-provoking ending. Paul Mitchell did a fabulous job narrating!

Hard to believe the Masonic brotherhood is so laden with sinister and cryptic mumbo jumbo! And the tortuous trail of obscure symbols which Langdon had to decipher in this one was WAY over the top in terms of believability! I loved Angels and Demons and liked the DaVinci Code, but this one lost me. I have about an hour left to go on the Audio book but I'm not sure I even want to finish it. The "bad guy" has been finally eliminated but now we seem to be in for a long rant on esoteric philosophy.

The beginning was boring but it got more fun as it went on. Just not as good as "Da Vinci Code" or "Angels and Demons" but still good. Paul Michael is the best

Not my fav Dan Brown novel. I like the Freemason stuff (I am a mason) and it kept my attention but his other books were better. Narrator was excellent.

My first Dan Brown book. I love his interesting takes on the subject matter and his plot twists.

This is not as good as da vinci code or Angels And Demons. Character development was not good and the story was not believable. It was a great reading however, the narrator has a commanding tone and uses different voices for each character. It just the overall content was lacking.

Story was incredibly far fetched. Characters behaved in unbelievable and illogical ways. Mysteries were fabricated and, for the most part, silly.
