    I am an absolute fanatic when it comes to "mysteries" and Freemasons and alchemy and that sort of thing. One of the greatest classes I took in college was called "Alchemy and Transformation of Self." So, when reading the Lost Symbol, I wanted more facts, was literally thirsting for more facts. I knew a little bit about most of the things Dan Brown was talking about in his extensively researched novel, but I just needed more. Simon Cox has given us that. In his well-organized Lost Symbol reference I am an absolute fanatic when it comes to "mysteries" and Freemasons and alchemy and that sort of thing. One of the greatest classes I took in college was called "Alchemy and Transformation of Self." So, when reading the Lost Symbol, I wanted more facts, was literally thirsting for more facts. I knew a little bit about most of the things Dan Brown was talking about in his extensively researched novel, but I just needed more. Simon Cox has given us that. In his well-organized Lost Symbol reference guide, you will find, in alphabetical order (of course!), brief descriptions of every possible thing one might have wondered about while reading the Lost Symbol. And he gives you just enough to satisfy your curiosity. As such, it doesn't get boring if you're reading a subject that's not particularly interesting, but you still get a good fill of all of the things that you find fascinating. Still, I was so curious about some of the things he said that I'll definitely be doing a bit more research. I had never heard before, for example, that some people believe that Shakespeare didn't actually write any of his works. And that some people believe that maybe Sir Francis Bacon (whom I've always adored) did write them. I'll definitely be looking more into this. All in all, even though it's a reference guide, it's extraordinarily easy and fascinating to read. Simon Cox has done a great job of separating Lost Symbol fact from Lost Symbol fiction while at the same time presenting the reader with enough knowledge to feel, well, knowledgeable.

Vabamüürlased, Nähtamatu kolledž, Smithsoni instituudi tugikeskus, Noeetikainstituut. Valge maja Washingtonis 1733 Loode Kuueteistkümnendal tänaval oli koopa kristluse-eelsest templist - kuningas Mausoluse templist, algsest mauseleumist... paigast, kuhu viiakse pärast surma. Pühendatav liitus salajase organisatsiooniga omakasupüüdlikuse eesmärgiga. 1.peatükk Robert Langton nägi unes Oteni liftil, mis tõusis mööda Eiffeli torni, põhi alt kadus. Ta võpatas oma pehmel nahkistmel psti, ehmudes poolunest ärkvele. Ta istus üksinda Falcon 2000EX reaktiivlennuki tohutus salongis, kui lennuk läbi turbulentsi edasi sööstis. Poolilmsi unenäo surnust isast, kahtlustas Langdon, oli põhjustanud tema ammuse mentori Peter Solomoni ootamatu kutse samal hommikul. Viiekümne kaheksa aastane filantroop, ajaloolane ja loodusteadlane oli võtnud Langtoni oma tiiva alla ligi kolmkümmend aastat tagasi. Lennuk ruleeris kusagil Dullese rahvusvahelise lennuvälja tohutus avaruses eraterminali poole ja peatus. Langdon võttis oma asjad, tänas piloote ja astus lennuki luksuslikust isemusest lahtikäivale trepile. Külm jaanuariõhk mõjus vabastavalt. Pilku tõstes nägi Langdon enda poole tõttamas keskealist rinnamärgi ja märkmekaustaga naist. Ta nimi oli Pam, kes oli reisijateteenindusest ja oli Roberti teoste fän. Robertit oli kerge ära tunda, sest kandis pidevalt rullkaelustega kampsuneid. Philip Exeteri akadeemias, kus Langton oli õppinud, nõuti kuuel päeval nädalas lipsu kandmist ning hoolimata direktori romantilistest kinnitustest, et lips pärineb siidi fascalia'test, mille abil Rooma oraatorid oma häälepaelu soojas hoidsid, teadis Langdon, et etümoloogiliselt tuleneb sõna "kravatt" halastamatutest Horvaatia palgasõduritest, kes panid enne lahingusse tormamist kaela kootud kaelasideme. Neile tuli vastu mees Charles Beltway Limusiinidets. Langdonit viidi kella seitsmeks Kapitooliumihoone juurde.Mal'akhiks, oli see, kes liitus selle salajase vennaskonnaga ja ta keha oli kaetud sümbolitega.

    While this book had so many great facts and information that was quite interesting and new to me, it still feel flat for holding my attention. I suppose only seeing the movies, and not actually reading the Dan Brown books, may have something to do with it. I will say it makes me want to read them more now than ever. I did learn quite a few cool things from this book, if they are indeed valid. The thing with that, is you really just never know unless you research it yourself.

I suppose only seeing the movies, and not actually reading the Dan Brown books, may have something to do with it. I will say it makes me want to read them more now than ever. I did learn quite a few cool things from this book, if they are indeed valid. The thing with that, is you really just never know unless you research it yourself. None of the subject matter really appeals to me enough to do that either. I do know some people that will be absolutely mesmerized and dig deep into this book, however I am not one of them. I do recommend you read, if you have read Dan Brown's previous novels, or have a keen thirst to learn of Freemasons, alchemy and conspiracy theories.

    Dan Brown researches his novels featuring Robert Langdon extensively. Simon Cox provides us with a detailed support manual for this research. Similar to Cox's Cracking the Da Vinci Code, there is a lot of information to be digested here. The book is organized alphabetically, which works well when you are referring back for a certain bit of info, but does make it a bit hard to read without having a specific destination in mind.

I learned quite a bit from reading this. The Smithsonian Museum Support Center, where a lot of action takes place in Dan Brown's novel, is a real place. Much of Brown's descriptions of the place are spot on, of course certain liberties have to be taken in order to provide an interesting and thrilling plot. Dan Brown does a good job of educating readers, but Simon Cox takes the learning a step further by providing in depth knowledge of these topics. If you enjoy Brown's novels, I do not see how you would not enjoy this book as well.
