"Dan Brown brings sexy back to a genre that had been left for dead . . . His code and clue-filled book is dense with exotica . . . amazing imagery . . . and the nonstop momentum that makes The Lost Symbol impossible to put down. Splendid. . . . Another mind-blowing Robert Langdon story." --New York Times "Thrilling in the extreme, a definite page-flipper." --Daily News (New York) "Call it Brownian motion: a comet-tail ride of beautifully spaced reveals and a socko unveiling of the killer's true identity." --Washington Post "The wait is over. The Lost Symbol is here--and you don't have to be a Freemason to enjoy it . . . .Thrilling and entertaining, like the experience on a roller coaster." --Los Angeles Times "Robert Langdon remains a terrific hero, a bookish intellectual who's cool in a crisis and quick on his feet . . . .The codes are intriguing, the settings present often-seen locales in a fresh light, and Brown keeps the pages turning." --Entertainment Weekly "A fascinating pleasure. . . . Upends our usual assumptions about the world we think we know." --Newsweek "A roaring ride. . . . A caper filled with puzzles, grids, symbols, pyramids and a secret that can bestow 'unfathomable power.'" --San Francisco Chronicle "Dan Brown is a master of the breathless, puzzle-driven thriller." --Richmond Times-Dispatch
