Dan Brown's new novel, the eagerly awaited follow-up to his #1 international phenomenon, The Da Vinci Code, which was the bestselling hardcover adult novel of all time with 81 million copies in print worldwide, will be published in the U.S. and Canada by Doubleday on September 15, 2009.
THE LOST SYMBOL will have a first printing of 5 million copies, and it will once again feature Dan Brown's unforgettable protagonist, Robert Langdon. Brown's longtime editor, Jason Kaufman, Vice President and Executive Editor at Doubleday said, "Nothing ever is as it first appears in a Dan Brown novel. This book's narrative takes place in a twelve-hour period, and from the first page, Dan's readers will feel the thrill of discovery as they follow Robert Langdon through a masterful and unexpected new landscape. THE LOST SYMBOL is full of surprises."
Dan Brown's popularity continues to grow. The film of The Da Vinci Code was a #1 box office smash when it was released by Columbia Pictures in May 2006 with Ron Howard directing and Tom Hanks starring as Robert Langdon. Box office receipts were $758 million. The same team will release Angels and Demons theatrically worldwide on May 15, 2009.

11 . Great book
Posted June 04, 2010 by Michia , DoverReally good book. Can't wait for the next one.
12 . This book leaves no doubts anymore...
Posted May 29, 2010 by Anita Calderoni , Pittsburg, CAI couldn't stop reading! I have always believed that the churches created by man were not created for their followers, but for themselves to gain power. I believe in Father creator and Mother Earth and within myself lies the power. There will be a time when we finally see the light and tell the Vatican to take a hike! Thanks to Dan Brown for doing such a great job.
13 . Makes you think
Posted May 02, 2010 by Dorothy0202 , New YorkBrown's book poses questions about our modern society, as with his previous novels, in an entertaining and suspenseful story. As I was reading it, I would spark conversations with my friends, asking the same questions and hearing different points of view...it really makes you think. I didn't like it as much as the DaVinci Code but I still hope it spawns a movie.
14 . Kept me interested after awhile.
Posted April 23, 2010 by Diana , TampaNot my favorite Dan Brown book, but ok overall. Took me awhile to get through it, some of the twists made it worth reading in the end.
15 . Not Good, Not Bad, Just OK
Posted April 14, 2010 by Brandon , Buffalo NYNot nearly as good as Angels and Demons or The DaVinci Code.. Very Wordy and too Long,Plot twists were ok, but in the end very easy to figure out..For what its worth also thought Deception Point was little boring..
16 . So disappointed :-<<<
Posted April 08, 2010 by Bopper , MaastrichtCan't believe I actually spent the time to go through the entire book.
17 . One Great Read
Posted April 04, 2010 by Michael H. , WashingtonThis is an AWESOME book! If you are going for a true, 100% accurate historical representation, perhaps you should by pass this one. However, if you want a book that will draw your attention in form the beginning, with characters (even the villian) you can root for, look no further.
One damn fine read. Could not recommend this any higher than anything I've read recently.
18 . Not a bad read.
Posted March 14, 2010 by Hudd , CaliI would tend to agree that it was an interesting read, but the ending kept dragging on. There were lots of twists and turns. In general, I liked it.
19 . Not even close
Posted March 11, 2010 by sumgrl , AustinLet me begin by saying I absolutely love Dan Brown's books, however, this one was a snooze fest. Not only was it completely predictible, but it was utterly ordinary. The plot twists could be seen from a mile away, and anybody who didn't know who the tattooed man was just skipped to the end. (If you think I'm crazy and didn't have the twist from the beginning I challenge you to ask yourself one question SPOILER ALERT: how did he get the money after he beat the man in the jail cell to death? There really was only one logical explanation). I get that this is a work of fiction, but when you wrap fiction in reality you have to at least give it some credibility. I really wanted to like this book, but alas...no.
20 . Genius !!!!
Posted March 04, 2010 by Barbara Jamison , Dallas, TXJust when you thought Dan Brown couldn't get any better, here comes The Lost Symbol. The master of intrigue, convuluted plots and surprise endings does it again! This is the best one yet ! It can't get better than this for Mr. Brown.......can it????
