Dan Brown's Next New Book

Origin

Dan Brown Origin book

We've read Dan Brown's new book Origin and made some comments here. But first, this is what Dan told us about his book, which is now available everywhere.

"Navigating the dark corridors of hidden history and extreme religion, Robert Langdon must evade a tormented enemy whose all-knowing power seems to emanate from Spain’s Royal Palace. On a trail marked by modern art and enigmatic symbols, Langdon uncovers clues that ultimately bring him face-to-face with a shocking discovery . . . and a breathtaking truth that has long eluded us.

"Origin opens with Langdon arriving at the ultra-modern Guggenheim Museum Bilbao for the unveiling of a discovery that "will change the face of science forever." The evening’s host is Edmond Kirsch, a forty-year-old billionaire and futurist whose dazzling high-tech inventions and audacious predictions have made him a renowned global figure. Kirsch, who was one of Langdon’s first students at Harvard two decades earlier, is about to reveal an astonishing breakthrough . . . one that will answer two of the fundamental questions of human existence.

"Where do we come from? Where are we going?

"As the event begins, Langdon and several hundred guests find themselves captivated by an utterly original presentation, which Langdon realizes will be far more controversial than he ever imagined. But the meticulously orchestrated evening suddenly erupts into chaos, and Kirsch’s precious discovery teeters on the brink of being lost forever. Reeling and facing an imminent threat, Langdon is forced into a desperate bid to escape Bilbao. With him is Ambra Vidal, the elegant museum director who worked with Kirsch to stage the provocative event. Together they flee to Barcelona on a perilous quest to locate a cryptic password that will unlock Kirsch’s secret."


After reading Origin, we found it to be entertaining, and it almost certainly will tell you more about modern art than you thought you were ever going to learn, but does it in a pleasurable way. As always, there are many clues, with countless twists and turns in the story. But rather than recount those here -- which might spoil it for you -- let's just say that Origin is very much on a par with Dan's other books (all except The Da Vinci Code which is in a higher class by itself). If you liked his earlier novels, you'll like this one too. There is no let-down in his vivid imagination nor his ability to spin a good yarn.


And if you liked The Da Vinci Code, you'll enjoy meeting the actual people involved in the early days of the Knights Templar and Freemasonry who fill the pages of Sworn in Secret. Both books are well recommended.

Long Range Forecast

Dan Brown's Next New Book

This is a preview look at what we may expect in Dan Brown's next book after Origin.

The actual content will not be released until Dan has wrung every last drop of suspense out of what is tradtionally a very long process. But here is the best projection available so far.

Since his travels are a hint to where he is next sending symbology professor Langdon, we can work from there.

Although Dan travels all over the globe for book festivals and what-have-you, there are a few locations that have resonated more than others. When he was at the United Arab Emirates, our antennae started vibrating. That fit right in with a comment he made while visiting there:

“There is no shortage of material for Robert Langdon in this world. Symbols, religion, conspiracy, all of that is a really rich world to explore."

Since he always likes to plow new ground, what better place to do that than the Arab world? Talk about "symbols, religion and conspiracy," it’s definitely all there. Add to that the Arab propensity to write in beautiful calligraphy with the words and letters shaped in such a way as to create amazing artwork. And the image thus created can also convey a message. It’s all vintage Dan Brown.

In second place among all the locations Dan has visited in the last couple of years is Prague. That is a musty old medieval city with lots of secrets. And he had an intriguing comment to make there as well:

“This visit has been very inspirational…. There are certain views of the city, for example from Charles Bridge looking up at the castle, that almost don’t seem real. You can almost imagine that someone painted the perfect picture.”

So expect Dan to paint Prague into his next book after Origin... while on his way to the Arab world where a white-knuckled confrontation involving who’s-a-friend-and-who’s-a-foe carries us through the shifting border between Christianity, Judaism and Islam.

Heck, I’d buy that book.

Dan Brown's Next New Book

Dan Brown shared these thoughts on his next new book during a May 13, 2012 interview.

Dan Brown says:

"I can tell you there is another book in progress. I am having a great time with it. I cannot share with you the subject matter or the location, but it’s another Robert Langdon thriller in the world of symbols and codes. It opens in a much different way than my other books, and Langdon is in a very different situation than he’s ever been in and has to use a different set of tools to extricate himself.

"Once I pick a topic and location, I have to read a lot to educate myself. I have to meet with specialists, travel to these locations, and gather mountains of information. Once I have all the information I need, I start outlining. I’m an early riser. I write from 4 o’clock until maybe noon, I get a little exercise, then deal with business in the afternoon. I do that seven days a week.

"The work that I do, as any writer knows, is fairly time-consuming and labor-intensive and focus-intensive. If I am answering fan mail or going to give speeches or doing movies, it’s very, very hard for me to write. It really seems respectful to my fans who are waiting for a book to stay focused on that."

This interview was told to Joel Brown and published in the Boston Globe. The event was at the Music Hall in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
