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.

Page turner5By Jaybig80Like most of Dan Brown’s books, this one is a page turner. Before you know it, you’ve spent a few hours with the characters he’s masterfully created. Classic Dan at his best.
It’s enjoyable3By Phil EssAt the beginning of this book I thought the only way it would be superb is if we learned it was written entirely by AI. Seems like that wasn’t the case. It was fun to lose yourself for a bit in this absurd character. The connections between art, history and politics felt a little square peg round hole, and the final revelation that is tirelessly referenced throughout was a huge letdown. Still a decent distraction with a familiar character.
Had to return in 20213By SdfrdeghfrjedI was upset after reading this book back when it came out, now that it’s 2021, I can totally see the book happening in real life lol
Suspense and Philosophy5By Josey86This book has all the usual suspense, but then at the end it’s amazingly philosophical as well. I spent the entire book desperately wanting to know what the big announcement was, but that was kind of anticlimactic. There was nothing new in the announcement, even for 2017. Winston, as a character, was the most intriguing and brought the philosophical twist. He’s certainly something of an antihero, which certainly adds to the philosophical dimension. This is my favourite Robert Langdon novel yet, but I certainly hope there is another in the works as we speak.
Another book, another adventure5By AaRONaSiCThank you! I will always love a good book and you’ve always provided me with one. I have many authors that I look forward to reading, your books however, I preorder. Thanks again for a great read, an historical adventure, and the fast paced page turning!
