Dan Brown’s success as a mystery thriller novelist materialized with the publishing of “Angels & Demons”, a New York Time’s bestseller that first introduced the main protagonist: a Harvard university professor by the name of Robert Langdon. Many of the characters featured in the novel are inspired by real-life acquaintances of the author and play a figurative role in the main plot of the story. Robert Langdon was inspired by John Langdon, a Harvard typographer that created numerous ambigrams for all of Brown’s later best-selling novels such as “The Da Vinci Code” and “The Lost Symbol”.
All three novels are now available for download in a high-quality audiobook format for free, on Audiobooks.com. Look for them under the Dan Brown landingpage.
Angels & Demons
“Angels & Demons” is considered the beginning of Dan Brown’s epic saga and revolves around Robert Langdon’s struggle to stop an ancient religious society called the Illuminati from destroying Vatican City using a newly acquired scientific technology. Following the trail of the Cardinals and with the help of the elite Swiss Guard, the ultimate secret of the Illuminati comes closer to being cracked. Based on both religious and pagan insignia, symbols and elemental clues, the Path of Illumination has to be completed in order to save the life of a captured woman and stop an assassin. With a timebomb waiting to happen right in the very heart of the Catholicism’s capital city, Langdon must use all his cryptography skills and historical knowledge to save all from impending doom.

The Da Vinci Code
“The Da Vinci Code” is considered Brown’s most infamous novel which led to the making of a blockbuster motion picture and spawned a great deal of religious controversy. The novel lays down the foundation of the style readers have come to expect: a combination of detective-thriller and high action mixed up with historical conspiracies. Starting off with an unexpected fatality at the Louvre museum in Paris, Langdon is asked to help the police decipher a secret message, which leads to an ancient treasure hunt that could potentially reveal the mystery behind “The Last Supper” by Michelangelo. With the legend of the Holy Grail coming to the forefront of the main plot, Langdon must determine the connection between it and the message.
