Intelligent! Thought moving!
This book made me love Dan Brown. Special thanks to Ate Karen for letting me read this book.
This is a sequel of symbologist Robert Langdon’s adventure now in Washington. As he is invited into an occasion as speaker, he is suddenly sucked up in a tale of mystery and action of solving the secret of the ancient mysteries, of hidden passages, organizations, and the greatest secret of history come forth the kidnapping of his friend mason Peter Solomon. Now, he has to follow what the kidnapper wants for him to find: the Mason’s pyramid and the Lost Word.
Dan Brown leaved me breathlessly flipping pages, kept me up late at night and bombarded me with much information. His distinct style of riveting rocket-paced thrillers proves to be magnificent.
The way the author gives the details in time while keeping to the plot is brilliant. He preserves the mystery yet still disclosing secrets as he moved on.
Brown has well weaved all his knowledge about history into something exciting. The author is like a tour guide walking you through a museum.
I guess I only have a little comments on the characterization of other supporting characters which did not stood out as well as the others. The main antagonist’s character was perfect though.
“The only difference between you and God is that you have forgotten you are divine.”
“Open your minds, my friends. We all fear what we do not understand.”
“Knowledge is a tool, and like all tools, its impact is in the hands of the user.”
Do not be blinded by the superficiality of people and things. Look for its roots, and you’ll find their true meanings.
