Origin Sunday Times #1 Bestseller
New York Times #1 Bestseller

The spellbinding new 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 a discovery that “will change the face of science forever”. The evening’s host is his friend and former student, Edmond Kirsch, a forty-year-old tech magnate whose dazzling inventions and audacious predictions have made him a controversial figure around the world. This evening is to be no exception: he claims he will reveal an astonishing scientific breakthrough to challenge the fundamentals of human existence.

But Langdon and several hundred other guests are left reeling when the meticulously orchestrated evening is blown apart before Kirsch’s precious discovery can be revealed. With his life under threat, Langdon is forced into a desperate bid to escape, along with 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.

In order to evade a tormented enemy who is one step ahead of them at every turn, Langdon and Vidal must navigate labyrinthine passageways of hidden history and ancient religion. On a trail marked only by enigmatic symbols and elusive modern art, Langdon and Vidal uncover the clues that will bring them face-to-face with a world-shaking truth that has remained buried – until now.

  • Brilliant and thought provoking.

    As always Dan Brown is a good read and Origin is no exception. Couldn’t put it down - figuratively rather than literally since I was reading it on my iPad - until the last word. Does this mean that the black in me is absorbing the purple?
  • Same old same old!

    As with all of his books Origin started out at a breathless pace, however for the first time for me it stalled at about a quarter of the way in and then failed to get going again, too similar story lines and not really the earth shattering discovery that I was hoping would maybe change the world for the better, sooner rather than later. I’ll still buy his work but this is easily his poorest effort to date.

    Same old format which has done its time. Very predictable story and the “big reveal” so lame it wasn’t worth it. Wouldn’t bother buying and will probably pass on any further books in this series.
  • Love in it!!!!

    I have read all off Dan Brown books. Symbol and Inferno were a bit disappointing, but this one got me exited again. Well done. P.S. I have Googled most of the places featured in the book as it made it more realistic.
  • What a plot! Leaves you worried about where our future might end.

    As always Dan Brown writes a gripping page turning story. There is always sufficient believable ideas mixed with pure adventure and excitement. The main theme is so current, but at the same time frightening for most people to understand that it challenges the reader.
  • Great book

    I recommend this book for good reading. Very interesting story, gave a lots of thoughts.
  • Too much 'Dan'-splaining

    The entire book feels rushed and overly contrived. It gets bogged down in its own theories and concepts with far too much Dansplaining (the Dan Brown version of Mansplaining). Every leap of logic is too comfortable, every decision or twist telegraphed and it becomes a tedious trudge through the expected. The "reveal" is bloated and feels like a plagiarized thesis paper and the somewhat facile ending makes me think Danny boy got as bored writing it as I did reading it. Still, his publisher will be happy he met the deadline.
  • Enthralling

    This book contains a fantastic, mind boggling, enthralling, very possible story. I very much enjoyed it and it was worth every penny, I love a book that makes you think and question. I couldn't put it down and when I did I couldn't wait to pick it up again! A must read!
  • Too much padding to read comfortably

    Good story as usual from Mr Brown but for me just to much of the "... That reminded Robert et al of when he was younger........" Let's just get on with the story and resist the temptation to make the book thicker
