The Lost Symbol
The Lost Symbol, formerly known under the working title as The Solomon Key, is the title of an unreleased novel by American author Dan Brown. The Lost Symbol will be the third book to involve the character of Harvard University symbologist Robert Langdon; the first two were Angels & Demons (2000) and The Da Vinci Code (2003).
According to early reports, the book’s story will take place in Washington, D.C. and focus on Freemasonry. The book has been in development for several years; originally expected in 2006, the projected publication date has been pushed back multiple times. The book will be published on 15 September 2009 with an initial print run of 5 million copies, which will be the largest first printing in publisher Random House‘s history. Brown’s US publisher Sonny Mehta described it as “a brilliant and compelling thriller” which was “well worth the wait”.
Of course with all the hoopla over “Angels And Demons” I decided to see just when the new book would be coming.. And sure enough finally it comes this September! Anyway, lets divert a second back to Angels… With the Illuminati being the focus of this book/movie, the shortwave and am radio waves have been inundated with crazy Illuminati haters.
Dan, Dan, Dan, you REALLY have touched a nerve! Just wait til you get into the whole Mason thing! Yeesh! I look forward to it myself. Presently I am reading “The Secret Architecture of Our Nations Capitol” an interesting read indeed about the Masonic influences in D.C.
A review of the new film as soon as I see it this weekend upcoming…
