Description

Brought to you by Penguin.

The global best seller - Origin is the latest Robert Langdon novel from the author of The Da Vinci Code.

Robert Langdon, Harvard professor of symbology and religious iconology, arrives at the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao to attend the unveiling of an astonishing scientific breakthrough. The evening’s host is billionaire Edmond Kirsch, a futurist whose dazzling high-tech inventions and audacious predictions have made him a controversial figure around the world.

But Langdon and several hundred guests are left reeling when the meticulously orchestrated evening is suddenly blown apart. There is a real danger that Kirsch’s precious discovery may be lost in the ensuing chaos. With his life under threat, Langdon is forced into a desperate bid to escape Bilbao, taking with him the museum’s director, Ambra Vidal. Together they flee to Barcelona on a perilous quest to locate a cryptic password that will unlock Kirsch’s secret.

To evade a devious enemy who is one step ahead of them at every turn, Langdon and Vidal must navigate the labyrinthine passageways of extreme religion and hidden history. On a trail marked only by enigmatic symbols and elusive modern art, Langdon and Vidal will come face to face with a breathtaking truth that has remained buried – until now.

Incredible!

Dan Brown mixes just the right amount of drama, mystery, futuristic idealogies, historical ambiguity with a spice of factual flavour for this book!
Loved the story and loved the performance!

The story is just rather poor

And having too much repetition and "preaching" really doesn't help. Begins ok but the ending is quite spectacularly disappointing.

Dan Brown tries too hard!!

Every book after Da Vinci code, Dan Brown has tried harder each time. But the problem is that unlike Da Vinci code where he took a conspiracy theory mainstream, in his last three books he has touched upon theories that are already in main stream discussion. So it does not sound good when a character shows naivety. It confounds even more that same character shows moments of brilliance at other times. And why should Langdon always have a female companion? Too convenient.

Terrible terrible book

Hope Dan brown stops writing this genre. Narrative flow, plot, history, mystery, characters are totally stale. And hold no interest.

Clever and highly interesting

Dan Brown on top form again featuring Spanish cities, particularly Barcelona. Thoroughly enjoyable, especially listening to it in Barcelona from roof top hotel pool with views of the Sagrada Familia.

Just Okay

Lots of build-up for a disappointing finish. Fantastic performance by Paul Michael doesn’t make up for it. It’s like a complex recipe that smells marvellous while it’s cooking - but has little flavour when it’s tasted.

His worst book, so boring.

So dissapointing. Too much background, not enough action and story. Too much Spanish and really boring. I battled through to the end because I hoped it would improve. The discovery was also a let down. Dan Brown's books have been deteriorating since his first 2 and I won't read the next one.

Such an amazing book, captivating till the end

This was my first listen in Audible. It was an amazing experience.

I loved the book! It makes you continue listening without stopping. You are eager to find answers. It is full of aurprises till the very end !
I highly recommend it !
Just bare in mind that the book is highly descriptive, so you might get bored by some details.

Just 2 suggestions: It would be nice if Audible included a small audio clip on the author’s background. And also, it is the same narrator that reads every single passage. It would be very helpful if Audible includes different narrators, each impersonating each character.

The evolution on man<br />

far too drawn out without really disclosing anything powerful . Theibald De Chardin is more enlightening

Origin keeps you guessing till the very end

Paul Michael through his narration keeps you mesmerized even through the various accents! This book would have been a dull one without his fluent shifts from Spanish to English accents.

Again a compelling story of Robert Langdon.

The book starts out similar to most of the other Dan Brown books. But the story is not with religion at the center. It plays an important part of the story but the juxtaposition with technology makes it feel fresh and easy to read. I especially liked the ending showing the motivation of some characters and their inner conflict. Fantastic is that the central mystery of the book ended on a positive note that I did not see comming as such.

Don't be afraid of the future.

Very good book. Gets more and more exciting and hard to take a break.
It might be the strongest of the books yet.
