Robert Langdon, Harvard professor of symbology and religious iconology, arrives at the ultramodern Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao to attend a major announcement—the unveiling of a discovery that “will change the face of science forever.”
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.
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.
Dan Brown made me read with enthusiasm another novel. As the blurp said, this book is about a topic he always uses in his books, the topic that made almost all the wars on this planet possible, the topic that will never chase to amaze how things can disappear and how ideas can be hidden away and lost forever, the topic of religion.
Edmond makes a discovery that we find out about nearly at the end of the book which annoyed me a lot but the book had an amazing alert rhythm that made me go on and on. It’s not the best of his novels in my opinion, I’ve loved The lost symbol, Angels and Demons and even the book before Origins, Inferno. I think Inferno was more smartly made, a lot more history was unfolded between its pages which is always a bonus. Combining AI with Origins was a smart move only because it’s the topic that makes waves and will continue to make waves until robots will be more present around us (I hope never) but there was not a lot of history in the book, which I take it kind of odd because the book is about the origins of human kind aka what the Bible says, but I gotta give it to him – he talked a lot about Darwin.
Our origin written by Edmond Kirsch it’s brilliant, scary and probably existent, I recommend it.
