More on ORIGIN

Announced last October, some details emerged today about Dan Brown’s upcoming book, Origin (PRH/Doubleday; Random House Large Print; Random House/BOT Audio; 10/3/17), the fifth in his Robert Langdon series.

The cover has been revealed, along with a trailer. The few hints about that the book is set in four cities in Spain has brought speculation. The LA Times writes, “Bilbao is home to a Guggenheim Museum, which seems certain to play a role in the novel — [Brown’s] Langdon character is a Harvard professor of symbology, and previous books have taken him to the Louvre (The Da Vinci Code) and the Museum of Palazzo Vecchio (Inferno).” Cue the hordes of tourists.

Entertainment Weekly adds that this book will offer a new twist on Brown’s usual mix of codes, religion and art. This time the art “will be modern, and the science will focus on cutting-edge technology.”
