Origin (Robert Langdon #5)
Author ~ Dan Brown
By the author that brought you the world-wide sensation, The Da Vinci Code, Dan Brown has another home run with his latest Robert Langdon adventure, Origin.
Robert Langdon finds himself at the Guggenheim Museum, invited to an extraordinary scientificpresentation presented by his former student, Edmond Kirsch. With religious and scientific repercussions, Kirsch has discovered the answer to the age old question of Where do we come from?
Where are we going? Moments before the big reveal, the evening erupts into chaos and Langdon finds himself forced to flee the Guggenheim, with the museum coordinator and future queen consort of Spain, Ambra Vidal, in tow.
Aided by Kirsch's assistant, Winston, Langdon and Vidal must find a way to help Kirsch to reveal his secrets to the world.
I was a little hesitant to get back into the Robert Langdon world. I didn't much like the last book in this series, and felt that it was a little too outrageous and over the top. I wasn't expecting much from Origin, but I surprised myself by liking it.
Origin is a popcorn book, plain and simple. If you are expecting any more depth to this book, you will be sadly disappointed, but if you are going in, knowing that it's going to be just a little ridiculous, just a little silly and a whole lot of "that would never happen in the real world", Origin will be a fun read.
With a few twists and turns Origin is a fun read and if you have enjoyed Dan Brown's other books in the Robert Langdon series, Origin is a very good addition and you will surely enjoy it too.
