Dan Brown books - June 14th 2009, 07:43 PM

Are all of his books a series? Wikipedia is making it look like on.

More, is The Da Vinci Code a sequel of Angels & Demons? Cause they both have Robert Langdon in them.

I don't want ANY spoilers. I just want those questions answered.

Angels & Demons was released in 2000, it was the first book to feature Robert Langdon. The Da Vinci Code was released in 2003, was the second book featuring the same character. Due to The Da Vinci Code's popularity at the time, they made the movie of that novel first. Angels and Demons is the "before" story. It is what took place before The Da Vinci code. So, Angels & Demons is not a sequel but the prequel to The Da Vinci Code.

Hope this helps :]

So, would it make more sense to read Angels & Demons first?

Yes, I'd suggest you read Angels & Demons first and then move on with The Da Vinci Code

I suppose it would, but in a way, the books are not really connected in any way other than by the character Robert Langdon. So it doesn't really matter

And when you ask, are "All of his books a series" I assume you're asking about his other ones as well? Such as Deception point? Because so far I haven't found that any of his books are connected in any way, the only ones even sharing the same character are Angels and Demons and The Da Vinci Code.

Hope this helped.

Angels and Demons/Da Vinci Code is a series in that they both revolve around Robert Langdon. Da Vinci Code was written after Angels and Demons, but they have absolutely nothing to do with one another. You could read Da Vinci Code first, or read As&Ds first, it totally doesn't matter.

If there are gods and they are just,
then they will not care how devout you have been,
but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by.
If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them.
If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life
that will live on in the memories of your loved ones."

Nah, it honestly doesn't matter in the slightest what way you read them. Angels and Demons was written first, but I read The Da Vinci code when I was 13, and didn't read Angels and Demons until this year, and the only thing they have in common is the main character, Robert Langdon, and it doesn't make any difference which one you read first.

Deception Point and Digital Fortress and separate books completely.

Some of his books revolve around the same main character. However, you don't need to read one in order to understand what's going on in the other books. Although he uses the same main character, there's no relation from one book to the next.
Angels & Demons, The DaVinci Code, and The Lost Symbol (Release date Sept 15, 2009) are all Robert Langdon books. Although it doesn't matter what order you read them in, I would definitely suggest reading them in order of release. There are little connections from one book to the next, but it's more or less, "Oh hey!" instead of, "What the hell are they talking about?" so it's not really a big deal, but still kind of cool to recognize the little stuff.
Deception Point and Digital Fortress, however, have no relation to one another or the Robert Langdon books.
But they're all GREAT reads.
