Dan Brown | Fiction
If you still need a Christmas gift for someone on your list, this is it! I inhaled Origin.
Edmond Kirsh, a 40-year-old billionaire, futurist, and technology genius is unveiling a discovery that will fundamentally change beliefs about human creation and existence. His dear friend Robert Langdon will be attending the elaborate, creative, dazzling presentation at the Guggenheim Museum in Bilboa Spain, along with several hundred other guests. Langdon is a brilliant Harvard professor of symbology and iconology. But then, chaos ensues and Langdon finds himself with the elegant museum director Ambra Vidal, as together they search for the password to unlock Kirsh's presentation.
This IS Dan Brown, so there is religion, anti-religion, history, and symbology throughout this fast-paced thriller. I enjoyed it immensely. Some of the resolutions were not complete surprises, but still, I was enthralled to learn of Kirsh's stunning discovery as well as to solve the inherent mystery in this tale.
