Book Review: Origin by Dan Brown

The story starts when Robert was called to attend a presentation in Spain of his former student, Edmond Kirsch. Edmond is a self-proclaimed atheist and futurist with amazing technology.

As the mass chaos approached, Robert was left with a magnificent queen of Spain in a rush to Barcelona to unravel the mysterious presentation before the night is over.

Origin is the thrilling story of Robert Langdon who is in the quest of solving two most important mysteries for mankind and a ground-breaking discovery holds the answers to them. The revelations of this presentation will change the history of Mankind forever.

Now, Langdon has to not only find the murderer of Edmond, but he also has to look for a code of 47 characters. However, without this code, Langdon and the world will never witness the huge expected change.

These discoveries will make you ponder over the questions like Where we come from? Where we go?. Dan Brown tries to shake off the lands of Religions and Science. The book has covered the most burning modern topics which are contradictory and uncontrollable.

Your favorite hero, Langdon, was first time introduced by Dan Brown in his novel Angels and Demon. Since then, he had his own fictional journey. He was also featured in Inferno, Da Vinci Code, and Lost Symbols. 

The only common thing about this Robert Langdon series by Dan Brown is its main character. Otherwise, the story of the books is entirely different from each other and contains its own essence.

This one of the top-selling novels is a unique blend of electrifying storytelling, historical reinterpretation, and genius code making.

Our Thoughts on Origin by Dan Brown

Not on a single page, you will feel like being bored. Every word will spellbind you and will intrigue you to read more and know more about the different religious organization. You would be mesmerized to digest the truth in such an anticipated way.

The other best thing about reading this book is I felt like I had traveled to Spain and Barcelona. Though I had never been there and that is the beauty of Dan Brown’s writing. The eloquent description of the locations, architects, organizations, and landscapes had transited me to the places where the story unfolds itself.

But as a reader, I must say that I kind of predicted the ending. The mystery was not so strong as expected by Dan Brown and you might also find the plot overly stretched. There is so much happening in the story at the same time that the reader sometimes finds itself lost and eventually nothing captures its attention.

Overall, you are going to like the book and this amazing read will blow your mind off with its intriguing mystery and the writing style.
