The evenings 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 Langdons 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 Kirschs 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 Kirschs 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 Spains 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 Kirschs shocking discovery... and the breathtaking truth that has long eluded us....

All right, Danny boy, let's see what you've got for us this time. Anyone want to take bets on how many times he mentions the Mickey Mouse watch?
Man, I hope that thing gets smashed under a garbage truck.
When Anuradha Herur woke up this morning, at the crack of dawn, she was in no way prepared for the absolute dismay she would have to face during the day. As she pulled her long, black hair into a bun, she contemplated the decision she had made the previous night. She had decided, bravely, to read Dan Brown's new treatise on the amalgamation of history and technology, religion and science. As she thumbed through the massive tome, she was, despite her initial trepidation, caught unawares of how cr ...more

It was morning. It was possible to tell this because the sun was in the sky and it was no longer dark out. Chestnut maned, voluptuous reference librarian Sara Fiore gradually felt herself awaken from a sleep which had lasted approximately seven hours. She turned on her side and allowed her brown eyes, one of which was slightly droopier than the other to linger lazily on the still sleeping form of her lithe and marvelously sexy husband Dan (who might be just a tad annoyed at being included in thi ...more
Dan Brown is back with some of his best work in a while. I was not a huge fan of his last two – Inferno and The Lost Symbol. I think for me they seemed kind of stale after Angels & Demons and The Da Vinci Code. Origin is now probably my second favorite of his (behind Angels and Demons).
Some of the key points:
Religion and Science – this is a big battle in our world today. It is an exhausting battle for someone like me who goes to church but also loves science. I worry that the feeling is star ...more
So after reading all Dan Brown’s books, I think I finally found the most interesting book among the five; which is ORIGIN
This book also starts with the same structure like his previous novels which focuses about the religion and the past while this book speaks about the religion and the future. In here the author gives the answers to the most basic and important questions which are;
Where did we come from?
Where are we going?
The second question made me astounded, but in a way I agree with that fa ...more
At the outset, I must admit that I am a big fan of Dan Brown. I have read his every book and the Robert Langdon series is one of my favourites. But the latest offering has left me disappointed. His latest offering Origin is by far his weakest; a uninspired narrative, lacking creative depth and most importantly a formulaic Langdon thriller that just doesn’t feel like a Dan Brown original. Origin is the fifth Dan Brown book featuring Langdon. Brown’s story explores the two existential questions: W ...more
من أين أتينا؟ من نحن؟ إلى أين نحن ذاهبون؟
سأل جوجان بفرشاته هذا السؤال قبل أكثر من مائة عام
في تاهيتي جزيرة الجمال والألم
التي قدم لنا منها أجمل لوحاته
وفي لوحته بالأعلى أطلق تساؤلاته عن كنه الحياة ومعنى الوجود
وتركها لنا علامات استفهام معلقة في الهواء يحاول البشر الإجابة عنها بلا توقف
مستخدمين العلم والأسطورة والأديان والتخيلات
ويأتي في القرن الحادي والعشرين مؤلف ظريف
متخصص في أدب التشويق والإثارة ولكن بطريقة ليست معتادة أبدا
يستخدم الرموز والخيال والعلم والدين
