Description

Where do we come from?

Where are we going?

The stunningly inventive new novel from the world's most popular thriller writer.

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 40-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 Dan Brown's most brilliant and entertaining novel to date.

Dan Brown is the author of numerous number one international best sellers, including The Da Vinci Code, Inferno, The Lost Symbol, Angels & Demons, Deception Point, and Digital Fortress.

Starts strong, begins to drone, then fizzles

It’s intriguing to begin with, the mystery seems new and interesting , but it rapidly devolves into yawning predictability, chases already better-done in previous novels, Shallow, undeveloped characters, and an embarrassingly obvious “whodunnit “ that thuds like a dropped fish as the big final revelation turns out to be simply another presentation of an already heard and heard again one-sided presentation of an unproven theory with utterly laughable “proof” that’s supposed to put the argument to rest.
The Whodunnit, as well as the how and why it was done is clear from the first few chapters, which then causes main character, Robert Langdon, to come off as blundering and stupid as he fails to see the obvious even while the reader is constantly reminded of his eidetic memory, Princeton education and overall brilliance. It’s jarring. A secret romance is the only surprise, but the underdeveloped characters waste even this one shocking revelation, which would have been so much better if only we had been given the opportunity to get to know the involved characters just a little. The locations are well-rendered and the invokes images very nice. The location is clever and the main character of Edmund Kirsch is the only really developed character, but he’s very well-done, a complicated, sort of likable, sort of repulsive guy. Truly an intriguing character. The single well-developed character and the well described locations help, but I can’t really describe this book as more than mediocre. The narrator, however, was excellent.

worst book I've ever read!

I don't even know why I finished it. Had nothing to do with symbols and history. Technology is not Dan Brown's forte. This was an attempt at rinse and repeat for Robert Langdon that turned into a slow moving, non-conflict, spewing of ideology.

He did it again! Thought-provoking and challenging

It doesn't matter your own religious beliefs (or lack thereof), this book will give you some nutrient-rich food for thought. This takes Brown's Langdon stories and tilts them askew, bringing science to the forefront to challenge the religions that formed the basis of its predecessors. Same riddles and puzzles as DaVinci and Angels, but such bigger questions! So real and reflective of our times. Brown hits the nail on the head with this INCREDIBLY timely tale!

Lacking

Some good plot twists but overall formulaic. The big reveal about the kings secret seemed tacked on and designed as PC statement. I will be passing on Dan Brown in the future.

A promise not delivered

It starts with intrigue. What is the great secrete of life, and death, that is about to be delivered. Then Dan sinks into drama... way to much drama. Ok, a good story must have conflict and drama to be interesting. But this was tiring... boring. I skipped from somewhere around chapter 60 to 90 and felt as if I did myself a great favor. Toward the end Dan does struggle with some interesting questions but the great message never makes it. It lacks that "it" factor. Never quite believable, even borders on boring. So if you must, try for the unabridged.

Ranks up there with the Da Vinci Code

I have read all of Dan Brown’s books. While this does contain similar ploys to move the plot along as does “The Da Vinci,” the new information is fresh and timely. I do hope that people will read it, both for the heart-stoppingly-paced mystery, but also for the underlying principles of resolving the seemingly contradictory principles of science and religion. I found it to be another profound book.

I wanted more puzzles

This was another great Langdon story with all the chases and mystery as the others. However, unlike his other adventures there was only one big puzzle he had to figure out. It was all about getting from point A to point B and figuring it out. I recently finished The Lost Symbol and there were so many puzzles he had to figure out to get to the final piece. I do like how the big reveal is inspired by real science and real scientists. You can actually look up the names and do your own research to come to your own conclusions. So I commend Dan Brown for that. And the narrator Paul Michael did another fantastic job. I just might listen to only his Audible books!

I expected more from D.B.

This story is hollow and not well founded. Dan Brown used to be my favorite author then I read B.V. Larson and he became my favorite with Dan Brown a close second, but this book changed all that. Orion is a cobbled together work that not only doesn't accomplish anything but the ending is a complete let down. All theories and scientific proof in this book could go either way and don't prove a thing. I am so sick of intellectual liberals that think physics is all there is to the universe (expand your mind a little bit)! Dan Brown did nothing but try to confuse his readers into submission with long drawn out explanations and huge leaps completely ignoring known problems with existing knowledge.

Not a novel... a lecture

There was hardly a story in this book. This was a series of lectures on science, evolution, etc. It is plain to see what side of the debate between creationism and evolution the author is on. I often felt like I was being chided or perhaps even mocked because I believe in God who created all things. As a series of lectures, the author should have given a rational voice to the other side of the debate.
