    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 individual scenes and sentences, then you're going to start to see the cracks, big and small. Big cracks like world-renowned scientists jumping to ludicrous ...

    Update: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 organization I never heard of and they are all real. So if that's your cup of tea I would recommend this book for you.Yes Robert Langdon is my guilty pl...

    If you’re reading this in an effort to determine whether or not you want to read Origins, I’m going to make two assumptions: 1) You’ve already read the previous books in the series and, as such, need no introduction to Robert Langdon or Dan Brown’s art/history/symbol/puzzle MO; and2) You’re not looking for sparkling prose (because, if you are, it’s a little bit like going to an all-you-can-eat $5.99 buffet and getting pissed that ther...

    Dan Brown is back with some of his best work in a while. I was not a huge fan of his last two – Inferno and The Lost Symbol. I think for me they seemed kind of stale after Angels & Demons and The Da Vinci Code. Origin is now probably my second favorite of his (behind Angels and Demons).Some of the key points:Religion and Science – this is a big battle in our world today. It is an exhausting battle for someone like me who goes to church but al...

    When Anuradha Herur woke up this morning, at the crack of dawn, she was in no way prepared for the absolute dismay she would have to face during the day. As she pulled her long, black hair into a bun, she contemplated the decision she had made the previous night. She had decided, bravely, to read Dan Brown's new treatise on the amalgamation of history and technology, religion and science. As she thumbed through the massive tome, she was, despite ...

    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 phenomenally best-selling novels. All the worn-out elements of those earlier books are dragged out once again for Brown to hyperventilate over like so...

    I first fell in love with Dan Brown's books when I read Deception Point and Digital Fortress many years ago. I used to get the audiobook CDs from the library and I would listen to them on my commute. His novels kept me completely captivated. Now let's talk about Origin, his latest novel. This is the 5th Robert Langdon novel and it has the same elements of the previous books in the series: a crime in a relevant location such as a museum, a mystery...

    Dan Brown returns to his best with Origin. Much like some of his previous works he tackles religion, particularly Christianity, this time with the age-old debate of Creationism Vs Evolution.Once again we are taken on a ride of codes and symbolism with Brown's biggest character Robert Langdon. The story is set in Spain where Robert comes across one of his former students who has now become world renowned in the science and technology fields and as...
