Origin

A Novel

(3)
The #1 New York Times Bestseller (October 2017) 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.

This book is part of a series, but I don't think it's necessary to have read the other books about Robert Langdon. It's not difficult to read. Many characters appear in this volume, every one of them well described in detail. What I liked the most were the mentions of special places around the world and that they really exist. And if a reader is interested, it's even possible to look these places up on the internet to get some more pieces of information and pictures as well. But this is nothing new in the Robert Langdon series, and maybe not for everyone. The story held me definitely in its grip, maybe not from the start because it took a little while to get into it, but after that, until the end, I couldn't put it down. I would recommend this novel to readers who like adventures with crime involved, with a lot of architectural background information, and for every age. I hope this is not the last part in this serie.

Klasse!

Das Buch war spannend, rasant und überraschend, wie man es von ihm gewohnt ist. Der Anfang zieht sich etwas, aber dann konnte ich es nicht mehr weglegen.

Nein! Das Buch kann einfach nicht an frühere Werke des Autoren anknüpfen. Es wirkt langatmig, gar schleppend, und Spannung wird nicht erzeugt. Was störend hinzukommt, sind ständige Erwähnungen bestimmter Technikprodukte, sowie die namentliche Nennung von Personen, welche heute mit Regelmäßigkeit in den Medien erscheinen. Das wirkt wie Schleichwerbung und... Nein! Das Buch kann einfach nicht an frühere Werke des Autoren anknüpfen. Es wirkt langatmig, gar schleppend, und Spannung wird nicht erzeugt. Was störend hinzukommt, sind ständige Erwähnungen bestimmter Technikprodukte, sowie die namentliche Nennung von Personen, welche heute mit Regelmäßigkeit in den Medien erscheinen. Das wirkt wie Schleichwerbung und man fragt sich unweigerlich, wer das Buchprojekt mitfinanziert hat.
