The #1 New York Times Bestseller from the author of The Da Vinci Code
Bilbao, Spain
Robert Langdon, Harvard professor of symbology and religious iconology, arrives at the ultramodern Guggenheim Museum Bilbao to attend a major announcement—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 whose dazzling high-tech inventions and audacious predictions have made him a renowned global figure. Kirsch, who was one of Langdon’s 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 Kirsch’s 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 Kirsch’s 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 Spain’s 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 Kirsch’s shocking discovery . . . and the breathtaking truth that has long eluded us.
Origin is stunningly inventive—Dan Brown's most brilliant and entertaining novel to date.

  • A major disappointment

    By Dfw2828
    Rambling, boring with little to no insightful writing. Brown has jumped the shark.
  • Dan Brown does it again!

    By Cm punk33
    I love reading all of Dan Brown’s books. The last one Inferno was good, but probably my least favorite of his books. This one goes right up to the top with Da Vinci Code and The Lost Symbol. I really enjoy the mystery and the unique twist at the end you can always expect from a Dan Brown book.

    Ultimately disappointing, the story lacked the essential kernel of revelation.

  • Pass, save your money and time

    Having enjoyed the DaVinci Code and Angels and Demons, I had high hopes. Rather than reading this book, I would suggest reading Ray Kurzweil.
  • Great book

    By Fantagerox! xP
    This is a wonderful read.
  • Entertaining but less captivating than previous books

    By Sweetyyingtao
    I enjoyed reading Origin and following Robert Langdon’s adventures once again, although I didn’t have the same level of interest as Angels and Demons or the Lost Symbol. Langdon’s approach to modern art and evolutionary concepts was interesting but the action is very slow to settle and there are not enough cliffhangers and twists to be captivated. In my opinion, it would have been interesting to add a third party, other than nobility and religion, in the potential suspects.
  • Not as good as I hoped

    By Cz3266
    I normally love Dan Brown books, but this one was a bit of disappointment. The story trudges on forever without much to keep you interested.
