The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown

Category : , , , , , , , ,

The Lost Symbol, Dan Brown's highly anticipated book made it's debut last September 15th and according to the news media, it sold a million dollar copies on the first day alone of it's release.

Although I was eagerly awaiting the release of the book, I haven't really been following any news about it so I just learned recently before its release, that the book will weave around the Freemasons and their role in the creation of the United States of America.

As with any Dan Brown book, this was a page turner and though most pages were short (one or 2 pages at least) it leaves the reader wanting for more.

The beauty of his writings lie in his ability to weave his fictional stories around topics containing occult, metaphysics, religious tenets and other unscientific beliefs which could be unpopular to a lot of people. Though his books' genre may be classified as "non-fiction", there are certainly "truths" within the storyline which the author is trying to disclose. Truths which have existed thousands of years and have survived time. Truths that were once hidden but is now accelerating in time to be shared with mankind as human civilization is perceived to be on the brink of a major collapse and life as we know it now will be drastically transformed if we are to believe the doomsday prophets and the signs of the times.

As the author of the Magdalen Manuscript, Tom Kenyon, aptly puts it:

The truth unveiled. For those who have eyes to see, let them see.
For those who have ears to hear, let them listen.
For those who have neither, let them pass on.

I will not do a complete review here since I will leave it up to the reader to draw their own conclusion about the book. For the casual reader, this may be an exciting read what with all the twists and turns of the storyline. The plot may be a bit similar to his "Da Vinci Code" but it does not in anyway lessen the importance of this book. We cannot ignore a lot of the things that Dan Brown was trying to explain in his book. For some of us, this may lead to curiosity that would propel some to do research (these information is widely available by the way) and verify the author's claims. Only a few will fully understand what the book is all about. But I am hoping that more people will resonate with this book.
