The Lost Symbol is a masterstroke of storytelling - a deadly race through a I liked this novel actually better than DV Code and A & D, which is ironic as it. While The Lost Symbol may not be quite as good as the now iconic previous novel The Da Vinci Code or the fantastic Angels and Demons, Dan Brown still.
Mal'akh then ties Katherine to a chair and inserts an open-ended transfusion needle into her arm and leaves her to bleed to death then flees with a weakened and wheelchair-bound Peter Solomon to the Temple Room of the Scottish Rite's House of the Temple. He uses the threat of not calling an ambulance for Katherine as further coercion for Peter's cooperation. Sato leads a team of agents to the mansion after Langdon and Katherine's escort fails to check in and are able to save Katherine's life. After a near-death experience, Langdon is revealed to have survived due to the "water" in the tank actually being breathable oxygenated liquid and the tank being a device for meditation.
Sato, Langdon and Simkins race to the House of the Temple where Mal'akh threatens to release a heavily edited video showing government officials performing secret Masonic rituals the same video that Sato showed to Bellamy , which without context, appears highly disturbing.
Mal'akh forces the Word—the unpronounceable circumpunct —out of Peter and tattoos it on his head on the last portion of unmarked skin on his body. Mal'akh then orders Peter to sacrifice him, as he believes that it is his destiny to become a demonic spirit and lead the forces of evil.
When Peter claims that he will do so without hesitation to avenge his son and mother, Mal'akh shocks Peter by revealing that he is actually Zachary Solomon himself, having conspired with the prison warden to fake his death by disfiguring the body of another inmate beyond recognition at the same time, Katherine and Bellamy discover several photos of Zachary in Greece after his supposed death that show his gradual transformation into Mal'akh.
With tears in his eyes, Peter prepares to stab Zachary but ultimately cannot bring himself to do so and drops the knife just as Langdon arrives and tackles him.
Director Sato arrives at the Temple in a helicopter, which smashes the Temple's skylight, the shards of which fatally impale Zachary. The CIA then thwart Zachary's plan to transmit the video to several leading media channels using an EMP blast, disabling a cell tower in the network path leading from Zachary's laptop computer. Katherine arrives and she and Langdon then share a tearful reunion with Peter and mourn Zachary's death. Zachary is only briefly able to lament his body's mutilation before dying.
Later, Peter informs Langdon that the circumpunct Zachary tattooed on his head is not the Word. He also informs Katherine that he made back-ups of all of her noetic research data on his own computer, meaning her research can continue.
Deciding to take Langdon to the true secret behind the Word, Peter leads him to the room atop the Washington Monument and tells him that the Word—a common Christian Bible , the Word of God—lies in the monument's cornerstone, buried in the ground beneath the monument's staircase. Langdon realizes that the symbols on the pyramid's base spelled out the words Laus Deo which translate to Praise God. These words are inscribed on the small aluminum capstone atop the Monument, which is the true Masonic Pyramid.
Peter tells Langdon that the Masons believe that the Bible is an esoteric allegory written by humanity, and that, like most religious texts around the globe, it contains veiled instructions for harnessing humanity's natural God-like qualities—similar to Katherine's noetic research—and is not meant to be interpreted as the commands of an all-powerful deity. This interpretation has been lost amid centuries of scientific skepticism and fundamentalist zealotry. The Masons have metaphorically buried it, believing that, when the time is right, its rediscovery will usher in a new era of human enlightenment.
Characters[ edit ] Robert Langdon : A professor of symbology at Harvard University and the protagonist of the novel. Mal'akh: A Mason whose body is covered with tattoos and the novel's main antagonist.
Formerly known as Zachary Solomon, the son of Peter, was arrested in Turkey for drug possession. During his incarceration he overheard a conversation between his father and the prison warden reaffirming that Peter would not pay for Zachary's release as he did not wish his son to believe that money was able to waiver all punishment, especially one of the magnitude of drug possession.
I'm almost surprised he didn't mention the inevitable hash thelostsymbol and tell us to use it when we tweet about what we just learned. On the f I have such issues rating Dan Brown books On the flip side, who doesn't love a good romp around a famous city solving mysteries with art and science and religion? You know the drill, and the formula hasn't changed here in the slightest. As a former DC resident of 7 years, I have to admit, I was expecting slightly more from the location, but Langdon and his companion du jour keep getting trapped in random places, so it's a bit disappointing on that front.
He does get 10 points for a hilarious caper including the Blue Line out to the King Street station though and the Red Line to Tenleytown yeah, Tenleytown shout-out, what up! This book's wacky science theme is Noetics, and the quasi-religious thing at hand is the Masons. Since the first thing that comes to mind re: Noetics is Fringe, I sort of expected a Pacey Witter guest appearance, but alas, it was not meant to be.
Tuhan mereka disebut sebagai arsitek penguasa semesta. Peter adalah pemimpinnya. Mason menjadi bahan mata kuliah Langdon saat itu. Disinyalir banyak orang berkuasa dan terkenal Amerika merupakan anggotanya namun masih diam-diam. Ritual yang dihubungkan dengan mistik masa lalu. Hanya sempat memberi satu perkuliahan saja berita buruk pun diterima.
Peter Solomon telah hilang dan seseorang telah menculiknya. Dengan beberapa petunjuk tersirat dan simbol, beberapa hari kemudian Peter ditemukan dengan keadaan terluka dan sejumlah simbol di kesepuluh jari sang professor berumur itu.
Setelah berangsur pulih, Peter pun kembali diculik dan penculik memaksa Langdon dan Khaterine mengikuti simbol-simbol yang diarahkan si penjahat. Mereka mencurigai pihak CIA menginginkan lebih dari penyelidikan itu.
Beberapa kecurigaan pun muncul orang-orang besar gedung putih punya keterkaitan dengan kasus itu. Atas bantuan seorang dekan dan bapa pemimpin gereja Khatolik mereka mendapat petunjuk simbol di mana keberadaan Peter. Dengan berbagai teori magic square Albreicht Duer, Benjamin Franklin, lambang-lambang dari keyakinan Mesir kuno yang dihubungkan simbol penyembahan dewa Ra atau dewa matahari, simbol Jahudi, dan Kristen.
Dengan kegigihannya Professor Langdon dalam memecahkan beberapa lambang, akhirnya dia dan Khaterine menemukan lokasi penculik tersebut.
Keduanya sudah sempat dinyatakan terbunuh. Walau begitu Peter tetap saja tidak mau memberi kode simbol piramida itu. Dia lebih memilih keamanan dunia daripada nyawa kawannya Langdon maupun saudarinya Khaterine. Sangatlah mengejutkan mengetahui bahwa penculik adalah Zachary, anak lelaki satu-satunya dari Peter.
Lelaki berusia 18 tahun yang dinyatakan meninggal setahun lalu di penjara Turki, anak muda yang terjerat dalam masalah narkotika. Peter enggan membebaskan anaknya itu dengan maksud memberinya pelajaran. Anak yang menjadi soroton media dengan kehidupan glamournya di berbagai belahan dunia.
Keluarga Solomon pun telah menguburkannya. Peter tahu pasti bahwa anaknya tidak akan tertarik dunia kampus, anak pembangkang dan pecandu steroid dan narkoba. Namun Peter tetap memberi hak waris anak berandal itu. Solomon pun pernah mengirimkan sejumlah uang besar ke rekening anak itu di Turki, namun angka yang lenyap seiring dengan kematian anaknya itu. Zachary yang akhirnya meloloskan diri dari penjara dan menyamar mengambil Andros Darros dengan kewarganegaraan Yunani.
Dan berhasil masuk ke Amerika Serikat dengan sejumlah penyamaran. Christopher Abaddon yang merupakan bagian mason dan kerap menyumbang dan menjadi dokter kepercayaan. Namun ketika itu dia malah menembak neneknya sendiri pada malam natal.
