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.
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. 😊
The anticipation was killing me!5By L.Val76Dan Brown never fails to deliver. I was excited the whole time and failed to get a good nights rest in the 48hrs it took for me to finish. I couldn’t put it down and I was not disappointed. Who cares if my family was hungry. I was busy! Highly recommended.
Same Book, Different Title1By Ryuku SanThis is the eternal Down Brown downfall. He took the formula from one of Crichton’s books and from then on he keeps writing the same book over and over again, just changing a few details... mostly the characters names. If you ever read any of Brown’s books, you unknowingly have read this one.
A Fun and Enlightening Adventure4By Dane DeasyI enjoyed reading this novel, though it took me longer than I’d like to admit to finish it. It’s a good adventure for those that appreciate thinking about science, art, and religion. I’d recommend it as an easy, laid-back read for anyone that’s enjoyed Dan Brown’s previous work.
Good read4By addybibbNot the best dan brown but still entertaining. At points it got a little predictable and a little slow, but still overall a good read.
