Description

The spellbinding new Robert Langdon novel from the author of The Da Vinci Code.

'Fans will not be disppointed' The Times

Robert Langdon, Harvard professor of symbology and religious iconology, arrives at the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao to attend the unveiling of a discovery that “will change the face of science forever”. The evening’s host is his friend and former student, Edmond Kirsch, a forty-year-old tech magnate whose dazzling inventions and audacious predictions have made him a controversial figure around the world. This evening is to be no exception: he claims he will reveal an astonishing scientific breakthrough to challenge the fundamentals of human existence.

But Langdon and several hundred other guests are left reeling when the meticulously orchestrated evening is blown apart before Kirsch’s precious discovery can be revealed. With his life under threat, Langdon is forced into a desperate bid to escape, along with the museum’s director, Ambra Vidal. Together they flee to Barcelona on a perilous quest to locate a cryptic password that will unlock Kirsch’s secret.

In order to evade a tormented enemy who is one step ahead of them at every turn, Langdon and Vidal must navigate labyrinthine passageways of hidden history and ancient religion. On a trail marked only by enigmatic symbols and elusive modern art, Langdon and Vidal uncover the clues that will bring them face-to-face with a world-shaking truth that has remained buried – until now.

    I agree with those reviewers who write the character, author and formula have reached the end of their journey.

    Young Pedro here was so excited when the notification buzzed to let me know my pre-order was ready. I started reading and felt something magical was on the cards. Before I know it I've finished the book and couldn't shake the feeling of disappointment. It's not a bad book, it just could've been so much more and even though Dan Brown writes to a formula his books are good fun and the moral argument runs nicely alongside a decent thriller. This book just didn't fire and even the twists can be seen coming. It's not a bad book but it's far from his best work I'm not sure Langdon has got another adventure in him. You won't be wowed and if you're a fan of the previous books it's worth reading

    Origin has the perfect mix of both a rich history and a gripping story. Where Inferno delivered far too much of the architecture of Florence, Origin goes back to the enlightening story telling of The Lost Symbol and The Da Vinci Code. In parts, the story is predictable, but this does not make the book uninteresting, in fact it draws you in closer. There are still however a handful of twists and turns which a Dan Brown book has always promised.

    Another matserpiece by Dan Brown. Completely blown away by this book. Could not put it down until I finshed it. Everytime I have to stop reading, felt like I left a movie on a pause. Can not wait for Ron Howard to direct this movie starring Tom Hanks. Just WOW
