The global bestseller - Origin is the latest Robert Langdon novel from the author of The Da Vinci Code.
'Fans will not be disappointed' The Times
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.
‘Dan Brown is the master of the intellectual cliffhanger’ Wall Street Journal
‘As engaging a hero as you could wish for’ Mail on Sunday
‘For anyone who wants more brain-food than thrillers normally provide’ Sunday Times
More of the same, but entertaining
Dan Brown found yet another angle to his recurring theme of science versus religion. The book is in no respect original and follows the same blueprint he established in his earlier Langdon novels. Also, the ground ideas on which the apparent controversy in this novel are built have been used better in other pieces of public culture. For the fans, it will provide some enjoyable light reading, but it misses the sheer page turning qualities of The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons.
Wat is dit met boeken. Lijkt wel een boeken kartel. 25 euro als paperback en 19 euro digitaal. Boek zal ongetwijfeld aardig zijn, maar wacht tot die in de rommel bakken ligt.
Dan brown Origin
Not as great or intriguing as his other books. Prediction like Star Trek is better.
