Dan Brown’s protagonist Robert Langdon returns this fall in The Lost Symbol, the sequel to The Da Vinci Code, Knopf Doubleday announced this week.
It took Brown 6 years to write this story, which takes place in a 12 hour period. “Robert Langdon’s life clearly moves a lot faster than mine,” Brown’s longtime editor, Jason Kaufman said.

If history is any indicator, this should be a good one. The Da Vinci Code, published in 2003, spent 144 weeks on the NY Times bestseller list and has been translated into 51 languages. The film version came out in 2006, starring Tom Hanks as Langdon, and made $758 million. And Brown’s earlier novel, Angels and Demons, is due out in theaters this May.

So, if by some fluke you haven’t read The Da Vinci Code, start now. It’s a big book.
