Dan Brown has done it again with The Lost Symbol. This book is definitely on the level with his first Robert Langdon book The DaVinci Code and above his second Angels and Demons.

Dan Brown brings us to Washington, D.C with Langdon who's on an impromptu trip, courtesy of his friend Philip. Unfortunately for Langdon, Philip, Philip's sister Katherine, and the CIA Philip is not actually the one putting on the show. A man has infiltrated the Masons and is about to expose everyone's secrets, resulting in a catastrophe that the CIA desperately is trying to avoid.

Brown's writing is fantastic once again. The story is fascinating by its research and attention to detail. Its fast-paced and gripping as Langdon races to face a deadline that seems impossible, yet must be accomplished. Its entertaining in its originality, its ability to cause the reader to wonder, and its thinking outside the box.

Brown suggests an idea that there doesn't have to be one or the other in religion. That possibly there is room in the world for acceptance. Words such as Creator or Architect over words like God, Allah, or Buddah might just be a path towards peace in the world. He supports this possibility through the usual symbology, history, and philosophical questioning that drives the reader to open their mind just a little to the possibility.

Here's to many more adventures with Robert Langdon and Dan Brown!
