Book Overview

The #1 New York Times Bestseller from the author of The Da Vinci Code
 
Bilbao, Spain
 
Robert Langdon, Harvard professor of symbology and religious iconology, arrives at the ultramodern Guggenheim Museum Bilbao to attend a major announcement—the unveiling of a discovery that “will change the face of science forever.” The evening’s host is Edmond Kirsch, a forty-year-old billionaire and futurist whose dazzling high-tech inventions and audacious predictions have made him a renowned global figure. Kirsch, who was one of Langdon’s first students at Harvard two decades earlier, is about to reveal an astonishing breakthrough . . . one that will answer two of the fundamental questions of human existence.
     As the event begins, Langdon and several hundred guests find themselves captivated by an utterly original presentation, which Langdon realizes will be far more controversial than he ever imagined. But the meticulously orchestrated evening suddenly erupts into chaos, and Kirsch’s precious discovery teeters on the brink of being lost forever. Reeling and facing an imminent threat, Langdon is forced into a desperate bid to escape Bilbao. With him is Ambra Vidal, the elegant museum director who worked with Kirsch to stage the provocative event. Together they flee to Barcelona on a perilous quest to locate a cryptic password that will unlock Kirsch’s secret.
     Navigating the dark corridors of hidden history and extreme religion, Langdon and Vidal must evade a tormented enemy whose all-knowing power seems to emanate from Spain’s Royal Palace itself . . . and who will stop at nothing to silence Edmond Kirsch. On a trail marked by modern art and enigmatic symbols, Langdon and Vidal uncover clues that ultimately bring them face-to-face with Kirsch’s shocking discovery . . . and the breathtaking truth that has long eluded us.
 
Origin is stunningly inventive—Dan Brown's most brilliant and entertaining novel to date.

    Not many authors draw me into the story like Dan Brown. It takes me forever to get through his books because I stop to research the artwork and architectures included in the stories. I absolutely love an author who has the ability to make you think and rethink things and learn new things along the way.

    Crap novel written by a committee. Cut away the canned history recitations and the actual book is about fifty pages of the usual Brown nonsense of guy and girl on the run.

    I’m biased...a HUGE Dan Brown fan but I do have to say that this one had me from the first few pages and kept me going throughout. I’d probably rank his top three in this order. 1. Angels and Demons 2. DaVinci Code 3. Origin That may sound crazy but his pacing and penchant for suspense in this novel kept me going strong on this one. His gift for making you think and explore. I read this on my iPad and I was constantly researching and looking up images of things/locations described in the book. I’ve even visited some of the places in Barcelona but love looking back. He’s got a special talent and really hope that they bring this to film. I just pray they don’t ruin it by changing the ending like they did in Inferno!!

    A good read, as always happens with Langdon books. But I did find this one more predictable than the previous ones.
  • Tedious

    A colossal waste of time. 100% boring. You can skip over entire chapters and not miss anything.
  • Best Langdon Novel Since The Da Vinci Code

    Really enjoyed this book. I read it in a few days and was never bored. I always enjoy the history and architecture lessons in Dan Browns books but I guess since Spain is a top bucket list location for me I enjoyed this even more.
  • Worst one by Dan Brown

    By ccantug
    You see the twist coming three miles away. Worse book than the Lost Symbol. He should stay with the classics, inferno, angels and Demons and the da Vinci codos are his best books
  • Very entertaining

    This is the first (only) Dan Brown book I have read so I can’t compare it to his other books, but from other reviews I get the idea that it may not have been his best work, however I enjoyed the story immensely. I was able to “predict” the prime antagonist about halfway through the book but I still enjoyed the experience.
