Bookworms, gear up! Dan Brown is the bestselling author of The Da Vinci Code, Angels and Demons, The Lost Symbol and Inferno. He is coming back with his latest installation of the Robert Langdon series. Its name is Origin which will hit the bookstores this October.
Dan Brown is the author of the New York Times bestseller books. More than 200 million copies have been sold worldwide. Fans of the author are anxiously waiting for this new piece of fiction. There are not many details about the story. But he has confirmed that the story will revolve around the main protagonist Robert Langdon and his adventures. Robert Langdon would continue to solve mysteries and unravel secrets in the book. This time the events will take place in Spain as revealed in the trailer for the book. An online contest was held for the book cover designs and those of five finalists are to be featured on the early prints of the book.
Before hits like Angels and Demons and The Da Vinci Code, Brown has written two other books: Deception Point and Digital Fortress. Both of these were not much of a commercial success but were praised by the critics for the thrills and twists in the stories.
Dan Brown has been criticized in the past for his controversial themes, especially in The Da Vinci Code. Here it seemed that not only the critics but the Catholic Church were also displeased with the writing. He claims it to be a piece of fiction but his justification did not seem to work as the book was banned in certain regions of the world.
His writing style is stunning and bewildering with limitless historical references and a detailed story which earns him a respectable position in the community of writers, especially in the thriller genre. The shocking developments and revelations allure the reader completely into the story. The plot is intricately developed with the characters superbly constructed in the story.
Many commercially successful Hollywood films have adopted his books. Veteran Hollywood actor Tom Hanks plays the lead and has done an amazing job in bringing the character to life. The films which include The Da Vinci Code (2006), Angels and Demons (2009) and Inferno (2016), have been a huge box-office success collecting $1.5 billion from around the world.
Origin is available for preorder now and will be available in the bookstores in October.
