Origin: A Novel

Unabridged / Go to Abridged Audiobook

Written By: Dan Brown

Narrated By: Paul Michael

Publisher: Random House (Audio)

Date: October 2017

Duration: 18 hours 11 minutes


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!

    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

    Very interesting book and a great suspense drama. I'm afraid some less open-minded religious readers may not wait until the end to stop listening, but CONTINUE THROUGH IT. The very end is very uplifting. This is very thought-provoking and a great book for discussion..

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

  • Don S

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

  • Sonja M

    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.

    Love it Kept me riveted Listened on my way to work and back and found myself sitting in my car longer just to keep listening when I got to my destination

    Not one of Dan Brown’s better books. It seems he is going out of his way to attack Christianity.

  • Meagan K

    Excellent narration. Easy listen. Interesting concept. A typical dan brown book. Fun but not earth shattering.
