Once I started it, I could not put it down; I finished it in 3 days. 😊
Dan Brown never fails to deliver. I was excited the whole time and failed to get a good nights rest in the 48hrs it took for me to finish. I couldn’t put it down and I was not disappointed. Who cares if my family was hungry. I was busy! Highly recommended.
This is the eternal Down Brown downfall. He took the formula from one of Crichton’s books and from then on he keeps writing the same book over and over again, just changing a few details... mostly the characters names. If you ever read any of Brown’s books, you unknowingly have read this one.
I enjoyed reading this novel, though it took me longer than I’d like to admit to finish it. It’s a good adventure for those that appreciate thinking about science, art, and religion.
I’d recommend it as an easy, laid-back read for anyone that’s enjoyed Dan Brown’s previous work.
Not the best dan brown but still entertaining. At points it got a little predictable and a little slow, but still overall a good read.
Great book but I would like to point out that humans did not evolve from chimpanzees and that the TRS-80 did not have a caps lock key.

I loved most of Dan Browns books but this is by far the worst.
Now I really want to revisit Spain to see the sites described in the book that I missed on past visits. The storyline of Origin tends to follow the same pattern as Mr. Brown’s other Langdon books, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. However, I did figure out the conclusion of this book about three quarters of the way through it, but that just motivated me to keep reading to see if I was right. And, as another reviewer already mentioned, I do see how Mr. Brown could write a sequel because he did leave us with a few loose ends, but I won’t mention them for the sake of people who may be reading this review prior to reading the book. Anyway, if he does write a sequel, I will be one of the first in line to purchase it.
This is a deeply provocative novel with far reaching ideas and thoughts. Loved all the references to Spanish history!
There’s a lot to unpack in a book that delves and intertwines fiction with non-fiction ideas. Origin does it cleverly and entertainingly. Sometimes the imagination for the actual storytelling lacks effort as you see the main effort is put forth in trying to make the notions believable and better yet, comprehensible, which in no doubt is done successfully. Nevertheless, a fun read with a lot of questions lingering afterwards-which to me, it’s how you realize if a novel is successful—by staying with the reader and challenging your own beliefs and understandings.
Once I picked up this book I could hardly put it down.
I will recommend this book to all I know.
