Origin: A Novel

Unabridged / Go to Abridged Audiobook

Written By: Dan Brown

Narrated By: Paul Michael

Publisher: Random House (Audio)

In keeping with his trademark style, Dan Brown, author of The Da Vinci Code and Inferno, interweaves codes, science, religion, history, art, and architecture into this new novel. Origin thrusts Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon into the dangerous intersection of humankind’s two most enduring questions, and the earthshaking discovery that will answer them.

    To me, not as interesting as Brown’s other books. I love history and this one didn’t have as much of it. It was about the future. The story mostly takes place in one night, so a lot of detail. I heard the phrase “where did we come from, where are we going” one too many times. That said, I did enjoy it, the narrator was good and the twist at the end was crazy!

    Excellent book. I always enjoy Dan Brown’s plots. The introduction of an A.I. character added an interesting twist to the action.

    This is another Dan Brown masterpiece. Great narrator once again. I just can’t say enough please Mr. Brown write more novels.

    There’s some very interesting science and discussion about religion and science. The story and plot surrounding it is tedious and a huge waste of time. Would NOT recommend.

    Besides the very beginning and the last two hours the entire book was a big waste of rat race without much insight or interesting facts

    Who are we , where are we going? A great read by Dan Brown. Non fiction is not the only genre to make you think on life. Thank the author for this thought provoking book and what the future of the digital realm means.

    Very interesting I enjoyed the setting in Spain and some of the sites visited along the way. The Bilbao Guggenheim Museum, La Sagrada Familia Church in Barcelona and the Gaudi structures in Barcelona very intriguing. fast paced and a quick read for me

    The narrator was outstanding, the best I have ever heard. The story was a little shallow for Dan Brown
