[img] [/ img] Dan (Daniel) Brown ( Dan Brown , real name - Danielle Brown) American thriller writer. & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; Dan Brown was born on June 22, 1964 in New Hampshire (USA), his father was a professor of mathematics, and his mother was a professional musician. Dan grew up surrounded by the paradoxes of science and religion! Dan graduated from Phillips Exeter Academy and Amherst College, then went to California, where he began his career as a songwriter, musician and performer, released several CDs of his recordings. In 1993 Dan Brown returned to New Hampshire to teach English and Spanish at Amherst College. & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; Blyce Brown, Dan`s wife, an artist and art critic, collaborated with him in scientific research and accompanied Dan on his many research travels. In 1995, Dan collaborated with her to publish 187 Men To Stay Away From: A Guide for Romantically Frustrated Women. & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; In 1998, the writer published his first thriller novel, Digital Fortress, which quickly became a bestseller among Internet users. The novel explores the fine line between civil liberty and national security. The reason for writing the book was real events that happened in the college where he taught: the American special services arrested one of the students who had the imprudence to write in an e-mail how he hated President Clinton, whom, in his opinion, it was high time to shoot him. The incident pushed Brown to study the methods of intelligence services and aroused a keen interest in cryptography, secret societies and intelligence organizations. His further works were also created at the "intersection of genres": in 2000, the intellectual conspiracy detective "Angels and Demons" was released. & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; In 2001, the thriller "Deception Point" was released, raising the issue of morality in politics and national security. In 2003, the adventures of Professor Robert Langdon from "Angels and Demons" were continued by the novel "The Da Vinci Code" - on the very first day after publication, it was sold in the amount of 6 thousand copies, and the total world circulation of Dan Brown`s bestsellers, translated into 40 languages, is approaching 81 million copies. In its first week of sales, The Da Vinci Code took first place on the New York bestseller list and was placed at the top of Wall Street Magazine`s bestsellers, The San Francisco Chronicles. It later became the # 1 hit on all major bestseller ratings in the country. In 2004, Dan Brown received the UK Best Book of the Year award for The Da Vinci Code. But in 2006, The Da Vinci Code was at the center of a major litigation in London. The plaintiffs were the authors of popular esoteric books on the history of religion, Michael Baigent and Richard Lee, who accused Brown of plagiarism and copyright infringement. They claimed that Brown copied the main line of his novel from their 1982 book The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail. However, the publisher and author of The Da Vinci Code argue that the ideas expressed in The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail have long been in the air and have been expressed in many works, both before the appearance of the book by Baigent and Leigh, and after its publication.

... The case ended in Brown`s favor. In May 2006, the film adaptation of The Da Vinci Code was released. The film adaptation of The Da Vinci Code starring Tom Hanks and Audrey Tautou brought the creators $ 758 million worldwide. Grosses for another adaptation of Brown`s work - the film "Angels and Demons", which was released in 2009, amounted to $ 468 million. The Lost Symbol is the sequel to the adventures of Professor Robert Langdon, the hero of the bestselling books The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons. According to the plot of the novel, which until the publication of the book was kept in strict confidence, in 1991 a document was placed in the safe of the CIA director, which is kept there to this day. The cryptic text mentions an ancient portal and an underground cache. Also in it you can find the phrase "It is hidden somewhere there." All the organizations featured in this book are real - including the Freemasons, the Invisible College (Royal Society), the CIA, the Smithsonian Museum`s Technical Support Center, and the Institute of Noetic Sciences (California, USA). All rituals, scientific research, works of art and monuments also exist in reality. More than 60 countries have purchased the publishing rights for this work. The novel was first released on September 15 in England, USA, Australia simultaneously in paper and electronic form. The writer is also engaged in journalism, regularly publishes in the magazines "Newsweek", "TIME", "Forbes", "People", "GQ", "The New Yorker", appears in various popular radio and television programs.  Writer`s site , IMDb ...  Bibliography Series Robert Langdon - Robert Langdon 2000 - 1.
