Book Description
«What was lost will be found…».
Washington DC: Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned at the last minute to deliver an evening lecture in the Capitol Building. Within moments of his arrival, however, a disturbing object – gruesomely encoded with five symbols – is discovered at the epicentre of the Rotunda. It is, he recognises, an ancient invitation, meant to beckon its recipient towards a long-lost world of hidden esoteric wisdom.
When Langdon’s revered mentor, Peter Solomon – philanthropist and prominent mason – is brutally kidnapped, Langdon realizes that his only hope of saving his friend’s life is to accept this mysterious summons and follow wherever it leads him.
Langdon finds himself quickly swept behind the facade of America’s most historic city into the unseen chambers, temples and tunnels which exist there. All that was familiar is transformed into a shadowy, clandestine world of an artfully concealed past in which Masonic secrets and never-before-seen revelations seem to be leading him to a single impossible and inconceivable truth.
A brilliantly composed tapestry of veiled histories, arcane icons and enigmatic codes, «The Lost Symbol» is an intelligent, lightning-paced thriller that offers surprises at every turn. For, as Robert Langdon will discover, there is nothing more extraordinary or shocking than the secret which hides in plain sight…

    Noi siamo quello che pensiamo

    Bello, bello, bello. Una sferzata di energia e stimolo mentale.. Solo per pochi eletti vedere oltre. W il sapere.

    Bella storia. Come tutti i romanzi di Dan Brown le pagine sono parecchie ma il lasso temporale descritto è molto breve. Le parti relative alla scienza sono molte ed in alcuni punti forse appesantiscono un po' la narrazione, ma alla fine si arriva alla fine con la voglia di sapere cosa succederà. L'antagonista del libro è davvero cattivo e spietato fino alla fine

    I have a passion for carpentry, and have myself built several bookcases and bookshelves over the last decade or so. These bookcases were not made using overly technical plans or specific tools, and yet they are durable, nice to look at and are able to hold all ofBookshelf, and trust me, I have a lot. There are a lot of low quality bookcases on the market that actually cost quite a bit of money, so it's nice to be able to easily knock together a bookshelf that is able to stand up against the commercial models.

    The tools I use when making bookcases and bookshelves are very simple - only a jigsaw, a powerdrill and a claw hammer. There are a few things you must consider before you start hammering and drilling away, however. Firstly, how big do you want your bookcase to be? You need to figure out the length and width of your proposed bookshelf. For your first bookshelf, I recommend making one that is five feet wide and at least three feet tall, which is great size for a standard bookcase.If you then throw in three shelves, you will have enough room to hold around one hundred books, which is awesome.
