In My Mailbox

In My Mailbox was created by The Story Siren.

It has been a while, mostly because I have been away on a month long hiatus and I also haven't really received any books in the mail.  This week though, I got one book and that is:

The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown

What was lost will be found. Washington DC: Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned at the last minute to deliver an evening lecture in the Capitol Building. Within moments of his arrival, however, a disturbing object - gruesomely encoded with five symbols - is discovered at the epicentre of the Rotunda. It is, he recognises, an ancient invitation, meant to beckon its recipient towards a long-lost world of hidden esoteric wisdom. When Langdon's revered mentor, Peter Solomon - philanthropist and prominent mason - is brutally kidnapped, Langdon realizes that his only hope of saving his friend's life is to accept this mysterious summons and follow wherever it leads him. Langdon finds himself quickly swept behind the facade of America's most historic city into the unseen chambers, temples and tunnels which exist there. All that was familiar is transformed into a shadowy, clandestine world of an artfully concealed past in which Masonic secrets and never-before-seen revelations seem to be leading him to a single impossible and inconceivable truth. A brilliantly composed tapestry of veiled histories, arcane icons and enigmatic codes, The Lost Symbol is an intelligent, lightning-paced thriller that offers surprises at every turn. For, as Robert Langdon will discover, there is nothing more extraordinary or shocking than the secret which hides in plain sight. (Taken from Christchurch City Libraries Website)


I've read the other two books to do with Robert Langdon so I thought I had better get around to reading this one.


That was my week, can't wait to see what everyone else got.

  4. I like the way the Freemason symbol is incorporated into the cover. I hope you enjoy The Lost Symbol. I liked it more than the Da Vinci Code but I still think Angels and Demons is better than the others.
