The #1 New York Times Bestseller (October 2017) 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.

    From mischa49
    Very very slow start but the last half of the book was excellent. Would have gotten 5 out of 5 if it was not for such a slow beginning

    From Max6789
    Fascinating, riveting, germane, prescient - but surprisingly repetitive, and way too long to the end. Scold the professional editors who should have been tougher. Hope it becomes a movie.

    From mlvilleneuve21
    Dan Brown is my favourite author and when I saw this book Origin I was truly excited. I must admit though that I am disappointed by the ending, it lacks originality! On a personal note I also didn’t like the choice of modern art and Spain with all the details describing « modern » architecture. The story within the story with the aging King and the young King and his fiancé was superfluous! But I read the book, it was still a page turner as you want to know what’s happening, and then you get to the end 😶 ... personally I found it lacking. I’m disappointed 😔
  • Very well done

    From Yvesdemontreal
    Amazing conclusions
  • Not worth its price... or its hype

    From letendrec
    A predictable storyline, caracters who become caricatures of themselves, a chase between churches with Robert Langdon and a woman, all seen, done, written and read before. I couldn’t put down Angels and Demons, or Da Vinci code. This one was hard to finish. So was Inferno. This type of storyline has perhaps done its time.. I'll pass on the next ones too.
  • Never got going for me

  • Another fascinating read

    From Sandra Dethier
    I took my time reading this book because i knew from the beginning that it was going to be captivating. It is very modern in many ways and linked to real life and real issues. There is a lot of depth. I will read it again. I highly recommend it.
