By Dan Brown
The #1 New York Times Bestseller from the author of The Da Vinci Code
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.

Pass, save your money and time1By Sean PatzerHaving enjoyed the DaVinci Code and Angels and Demons, I had high hopes. Rather than reading this book, I would suggest reading Ray Kurzweil.
Great book5By Fantagerox! xPThis is a wonderful read.
Entertaining but less captivating than previous books3By SweetyyingtaoI enjoyed reading Origin and following Robert Langdon’s adventures once again, although I didn’t have the same level of interest as Angels and Demons or the Lost Symbol. Langdon’s approach to modern art and evolutionary concepts was interesting but the action is very slow to settle and there are not enough cliffhangers and twists to be captivated. In my opinion, it would have been interesting to add a third party, other than nobility and religion, in the potential suspects.
Not as good as I hoped3By Cz3266I normally love Dan Brown books, but this one was a bit of disappointment. The story trudges on forever without much to keep you interested.
Big Dan Brown Fan2By ElectrogildoBut I was truly disappointed with Robert Langdon’s recent adventure. Hopefully it’s his last one too. He must be at least 70.
Never disappoints!5By Ma'iliAll the usual intrigue but a wealth of true info that I had no clue about! But now I am more enlightened!! Loved the book and hope it will be a movie soon!
Plot 5, writing 13By Auggie's ManI was encouraged to read this by a good friend who promised me I could looks past the terrible writing to enjoy the plot and interesting thoughts presented. I did like those things, as I’ve enjoyed in past Brown novels, but this time I put the book down more often with frustration at the writing. So while I’ll thank my friend because her heart was in the right place, and her analysis good, I think this will probably be my last Brown book.
In Winston we Trust5By Ryno72Great installment in the Robert Langdon series. Loved the setting and the usual twists and turns.
