The stunningly inventive new novel from the world’s most popular thriller writer

Bilbao, Spain

Robert Langdon, Harvard professor of symbology and religious iconology, arrives at the ultramodern Guggenheim Museum 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.

Origin is Dan Brown’s most brilliant and entertaining novel to date.

WRITE A REVIEW

'Origin' is a book to be read again and again.

5

Dan Brown has out-done himself again. A nail-biting endeavour full of suspense and wonder as he takes you on another journey with codes, religious history and conspiracy. If you have previously read other Dan Brown books, you will not be disappointed. If you are new to Dan Brown, welcome and prepare to go on an epic adventure. Brown's style of writing makes it an easy-read for readers at all levels. The short chapters allowed for short bursts of reading, while the cliff-hanger chapter-endings made it impossible, almost painful, to put the novel down. I recommend this book to anyone who loves twists and turns, a little bit of history and conspiracy theories. Dan Brown has hit the nail on the head regarding where we come from and where we are going, which may increase awareness to fellow readers of where humanity is headed as a matter of survival. Happy Reading!

I am unsure the extent to which this book is intended as a piece of fiction, or whether it represents Dan Brown's philosophy on the future of the world.

Dan Brown

Dan Brown is the author of numerous bestselling novels, including the worldwide number one, The Da Vinci Code â?? one of the best selling novels of all time. His four novels were in the Sunday Times bestsellers list for a whole year and were the top four bestselling novels of 2005. They have been translated and published in more than 40 languages around the world.

Dan is a graduate of Amherst College and Phillips Exeter Academy, where he spent time as an English teacher before turning his efforts fully to writing. In 1996, his interest in code-breaking and covert government agencies led him to write his first novel, Digital Fortress, which quickly became a number one bestselling eBook. Set within the clandestine National Security Agency, the novel explores the fine line between civilian privacy and national security. Dan Brownâ??s follow-up techno-thriller, Deception Point, centred on similar issues of morality in politics, national security, and classified technology.

The son of a Presidential Award winning math professor and of a professional sacred musician, Dan grew up surrounded by the paradoxical philosophies of science and religion. These complementary perspectives served as inspiration for his acclaimed novel Angels & Demons â?? a science vs. religion thriller set within a Swiss physics lab and Vatican City.

Dan Brownâ??s wife Blythe â?? an art historian and painter â?? collaborates on his research and accompanies him on his frequent research trips, including to Paris, where they spent time in the Louvre for his thriller, The Da Vinci Code.

The Da Vinci Code has sold some 70 million copies worldwide. Both The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons have been adapted for film by Columbia Pictures.

His fifth novel, The Lost Symbol, featuring Robert Langdon, was released in September 2009.
