'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.

    Stunning, gripping...and to one who is a truth seeker, stands alongside my Bible, Science and health, and The infinite Way.

    This book was very intense. Had me on the edge of my sit right from the first chapter. Found it very hard to put down once I started reading. Another Dan Brown masterpiece.
  • Pure drivel

    By bookiee9
    Having read Dan Browns other books I was looking forward to reading Origin. On reading the first page I thought that the book would be quite good however it quickly degenerated into a non story of complete drivel. This book is very disappointing and a complete waste of money time and effort. Be warned don’t buy this book your money will be better spent elsewhere.
  • predictable plot line and some truly cringe worthy dialogue

    By Sandy the Bullmastif
    ..we evolved from pond scum, machines will take over the world, religious leaders displeased, Langdon still a grown man wearing a Mickey Mouse watch with attractive younger girl in tow.. There, saved you £s and a disappointing read.

    I have had the opportunity to read all of Dan Browns’ novels and this one does not disappoint. An entriguing storyline that grips from the first page. To the ending with a brilliant twist.

    Definitely not a thriller! Largely a boring description of Spanish architecture, art and history. Not worth the money. Very disappointing and written on the back of the Da Vinci Code.
  • Giant leap of innovative thought

    By Ulkuq
    Thought provoking, deeply absorbing, perhaps the best of Dan Brown
