By Dan Brown
The #1 New York Times Bestseller (October 2017) from the author of The Da Vinci Code.
Robert Langdon, Harvard professor of symbology, arrives at the ultramodern Guggenheim Museum Bilbao to attend 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, and one of Langdon’s first students.
But the meticulously orchestrated evening suddenly erupts into chaos, and Kirsch’s precious discovery teeters on the brink of being lost forever. Facing an imminent threat, Langdon is forced to flee. With him is Ambra Vidal, the elegant museum director who worked with Kirsch. They travel 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 an enemy whose all-knowing power seems to emanate from Spain’s Royal Palace. They uncover clues that ultimately bring them face-to-face with Kirsch’s shocking discovery…and the breathtaking truth that has long eluded us.
Kept me on the edge of my seat!5By FlamidwyfeAs per Dan Brown ‘s usually, another great book. The amount of research must be astounding. One of the cathedral, my granddaughter and I visited so we felt part of the story. Keep writing Dan!
Incredible Intellectual Thriller5By photofeedrBringing together similar concepts to Ray Kurzweil’s Singularity is Near with a wild adventure - you’ll learn about religious evolution - impact of technology on our world today and what 2050 will look like as we “merge” with tech by that point in time... the first 80% of the book is an incredible adventure looking for the killer of a brilliant mind - great illustration and intelligence went into every scene - I was literally on the edge of my seat the entire time. I read this book entirely on my I iPhone Plus on 2 different cross country flights - most enjoyable choice for sure!!!

More droning than the Super Bowl LIII halftime show2By Just'in Time!Very interesting concept and the actual information pertaining to the reason for the book is most fascinating. But to get to that information you need to spend pages upon pages of endless tangents and droning of insignificant, partially related dribble. I hate discontinuing a book, but I may have to. If I’m in a not-so-good mood, this brings me lower, not higher. This book is the equivalent to reading a recipe from a mother’s online blog. They’ll give you their life story from conception to how they were inspired to make the dish before providing the recipe. If you like that sort of thing, then this is totally you!
Why so critical?4By SolarisGuruI haven’t been able to put this book down. It feels a little slow at times but otherwise it’s a great story. I don’t understand the one star critical reviews of it. Lighten up already.
Twisting5By PlayR4rtNiteSo cool
Origin4By jrcd555Best of his books in my opinion.
60% Through & Tired Of Waiting1By Sean1isaWhat a sad effort by an author I’ve thoroughly enjoyed up til now. This is not an intriguing history/art/symbology filled exciting drama. It’s a painfully slow atheist fueled scream, dragged out for hundreds and hundreds of pages of boring inner monologues, witless dialogue and plain silly characters, inhuman and human. Not remotely close to past storytelling standard.
Origins1By BellRR77Loved Dan Brown’s Langdon series until now. Horribly written and seriously, how much did CNN pay you.
A quick and compelling read!4By Flip730Once I started it, I could not put it down; I finished it in 3 days. 😊
