Read Origin (Robert Langdon, #5) Online Free - 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.” 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.

Where do we come from?
Where are we going?
Yes, it's the new Dan Brown book. Yes, it's pulpy and ridiculous. But I have to say it-- it was really entertaining, too.
The thing about Brown is that he's a mediocre-at-best writer with really fascinating ideas. If you spend too much time analysing ind...

I just finished the book. It's not the best Robert Langdon book in my opinion but it's entertaining as hell. As always if you are looking for some quality writing this is not the book for you. However I love these books. I love that I can look up a building or a piece of art or a religious...

Dan Brown is back with another thriller so moronic you can feel your IQ points flaking away like dandruff.
“Origin” marks the fifth outing for Harvard professor Robert Langdon, the symbologist who uncovered stunning secrets and shocking conspiracies in “The Da Vinci Code” and Brown’s other phenome...

Well, I won’t lie. I had fun.
Dan Brown novels are like Michael Bay movies; both were once cool and are now timeworn by overstaying the welcome. Well, if you are content with what to expect, they could still be easy entertainment. But this one surprised me, by being bad. I was more curious about...

FIVE STARS and FIVE MORE!!
Nothing is invented, for its written in nature first. Originality consists of returning to the Origin." -Antoni Gaudi
Where did we come from? Where are we going? These are the two most basic, yet important questions mankind asks of itself. For thousands of years man has...

Well that was quintessential Dan Brown. A literary masterpiece? Of course not, and that's not why I read him. Origin isn't his best. Overwritten in some places, underwritten in others. Premise wasn't as tight as his others but still, fast-paced, exciting, interesting, a bit of armchair travel, a...

Mr. Brown, why dost thou hate the Catholic Church?
I read an article where Mr. Brown stated that he writes what he wants to read. I am certainly glad for that because he writes what I want to read too.
His books have been criticized for being formula...

YES I HAVE READ THE BOOK ALREADY! I HATE PEOPLE WHO RATE BEFORE THEY HAVE EVEN READ IT!
I called in sick (as much as you can call in sick from your weekly volunteer job) and cancelled a doctor's appt. to be home to get parcel from Amazon/Canada Post.
Sat down .. read it through straight to the end....

Adorado por uns, desprezado por outros, Dan Brown não deixa os leitores indiferentes. Para muitos, a leitura dos seus livros é uma espécie de prazer secreto, o equivalente à trilogia As Sombras de Grey, mas noutra dimensão.
Este é mais um romance de leitura compulsiva, cujo ritmo alucinante impul...
