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 breath-taking truth that has remained buried -until now.

Fascinating story right on this time

Truly a Dan Brown novel with impeccable details on facts and some relies on imagination. Strong story and slightly less "running from A to B". Detective story of modern era.

Rosebud123abc ,

Boring and poorly outlined and written

Nothing to add, really. Except that the author’s dialogue is hilariously clumsy. I stopped countless times, my brain aching, to think: “Nobody talks like this in any situation, ever.” The protagonists’ actions were often absurdly illogical, and action, which sometimes began promisingly, was always interrupted with the authors’ lectures (which he appears to give believing his readers are 9-year-olds).

Grasping from all roots

The latest book origins set me again to ponder and wonder about deep subjects humankind still have not been able to know or agree on. Origins is yet another masterpiece from Dan Brown who take Robert to Spain to uncover the greatest questions of all time: Where do we come from? Where are we going?
