Description of the book Origin by Dan Brown

Origin Dan Brown eBOOK, ePUB, Audiobook .

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.

    Half-baked understanding of religion and physics along with a long, boring monologues of an AI really don’t mix well.
  • One of his best!

    I really enjoyed the book, and feel like I not only was entertained, but also educated. Very similar to the da Vinci code, and if you like that, I guarantee like this.
  • Awful

    By never buying this series again
    No mystery here, same as the rest, more of a platform for Brown to ramble on som philosophic rant about technology.
  • Thanks, Dan Brown

    My first Dan Brown book - a real page turner!
  • Not Origin(al)

    This was another formulaic story that has most of the same tricks Dan Brown has used in previous novels. For such a prolific author Mr. Brown has repeatedly failed to accomplish characterization of rounded, believable people. Wasted my 14 dollars, I won’t make the same mistake again.
  • Oh Wow!

    I love this book! Is Dan Brown a great writer? Not really, the grammar and typos in this book were plentiful. Is the story believable? Well, it is a work of fiction. Does his writing follow the same patterns as his other works? Most definitely. Does it matter? Not to me. I’ve read all of his books, and I have enjoyed them regardless of the above-mentioned points. The key for me is fiction. I was captivated from the beginning. An enjoyable experience for me all the way around.
