Hoping Origin will be better
Dan Brown is known for getting into secret societies, that is what Origin will be about — they (a cult) want to keep something hidden, an artefact comes out in the open and it will be the end of the world (aka destroy Christianity). I didn't like Inferno but I think this one will be better.
Develop Langdon's character
24, web content writer
Dan Brown's novels get too predictable after a point, I am hoping this one breaks some common patterns. Also, it would be nice to see Professor Robert Langdon's character develop along with the story; he's been the distant saviour of the world for far too long.
Dan Brown should mix it up
28, jewellery designer
I'm expecting it to be as good as The Da Vinci Code. I loved Deception Point but his last one, Inferno, was boring. Most of his books follow the same format, mixing technology with history and a wild goose chase through an old city with a female character. It would be fun to be surprised.
Looking forward to Spanish chase
27, PR professional
I'm eagerly waiting to read more about Robert Langdon going back to the world of history. People might find his books repetitive. I disagree as I love the way Brown writes. He hasn't revealed much in the synopsis except that Langdon heading to Spain. I don't know much about Spanish history, so I am looking forward to it.
