Dan Brown's Newest Thriller: The Lost Symbol
The Countdown Begins
The countdown has begun for the release of Dan Brown's new novel, The Lost Symbol, the much anticipated follow up to the number one bestselling hardcover adult novel of all time, The Da Vinci Code. The release date for The Lost Symbol has been scheduled for September 15, 2009 with an initial first printing of 5 million copies.
Not many details have been released about the plot, but if Brown's previous novels are any indication of what's to come, fans are in for a thrilling ride. While details of the book are kept under a shroud of secrecy, one thing is for certain: The Lost Symbol will feature fan favorite Robert Langdon and take the reader along another one of his exciting adventures. It has been publicized that the adventure will span twelve-hours of Langdon's life - a gut wrenching twelve hours, I'm sure.
The exact plot of the book has yet to be released to the general public. Fans are speculating that this is to prevent other authors from "borrowing" ideas and story lines in an attempt to capitalize on all of the hype surrounding the release of this book. One interesting thing to note is that even without knowing what the story is about, fans are already lining up to read the book as pre-release sales of the book put it near the top of Amazon's bestselling books list, with the release still a couple months out.
Time will tell if Dan Brown's latest novel will live up to the hype or will fall flat and disappoint. What does your gut tell you?
