The Lost Symbol

My very first review

It was definitely a book I really liked. Mystic, intriguing, interesting and most importantly perceptive. A plot that keeps you guessing and leaves you thinking and wondering. So many twists one cannot predict, one thing it highlights is the importance of observing small details that hide in plain sight and it stimulates a thought process, makes you wonder about simple routine rituals .A few of its logics might be conflicting to some peoples beliefs but if one tries to understand and look at it the in light of their own belief there is still much to understand and learn.

Basic Plot

In The Lost Symbol, Robert Langdon must race to save a friend of his, 33rd Degree Freemason Peter Solomon, who has been abducted. The abductor, who goes by the name of Mal'akh, warns Langdon that he must locate the Mason's Pyramid and The Lost Word before a specific deadline, or Solomon will be executed.

Favourite Quote:

The Secret Teachings of All Ages

"To live in the world without becoming aware of the meaning of the world is like wandering about in a great library without touching the books."
