Origin (Robert Langdon #5) Reviews
I first fell in love with Dan Brown's books when I read Deception Point and Digital Fortress many years ago. I used to get the audiobook CDs from the library and I would listen to them on my commute. His novels kept me completely captivated.
Now let's talk about Origin, his latest novel. This is the 5th Robert Langdon novel and it has the same elements of the previous books in the series: a crime in a relevant location such as a museum, a mystery to solve, a beautiful and smart woman that teams ...more
In comparing this book with Dan Brown's others, I'd give 4.5 stars if that was an option.
Early on, there are too many passages that are pure travel guide. However, by the end, Brown is comfortably tackling the Big Topic: religion vs. technology. There are one or two of the usual Texas/Southern/Bible stereotypes, but in other passages Brown gives us valuable reminders of Spain's history and the darkness of Franco's governance.
I'm not giving much away by saying Barcelona, and Gaudi's architecture, ...more
When Anuradha Herur woke up this morning, at the crack of dawn, she was in no way prepared for the absolute dismay she would have to face during the day. As she pulled her long, black hair into a bun, she contemplated the decision she had made the previous night. She had decided, bravely, to read Dan Brown's new treatise on the amalgamation of history and technology, religion and science. As she thumbed through the massive tome, she was, despite her initial trepidation, caught unawares of how cr ...more
So after reading all Dan Brown’s books, I think I finally found the most interesting book among the five; which is ORIGIN
This book also starts with the same structure like his previous novels which focuses about the religion and the past while this book speaks about the religion and the future. In here the author gives the answers to the most basic and important questions which are;
Where did we come from?
Where are we going?
The second question made me astounded, but in a way I agree with that fa ...more
من أين أتينا؟ من نحن؟ إلى أين نحن ذاهبون؟
سأل جوجان بفرشاته هذا السؤال قبل أكثر من مائة عام
في تاهيتي جزيرة الجمال والألم
التي قدم لنا منها أجمل لوحاته
وفي لوحته بالأعلى أطلق تساؤلاته عن كنه الحياة ومعنى الوجود
وتركها لنا علامات استفهام معلقة في الهواء يحاول البشر الإجابة عنها بلا توقف
مستخدمين العلم والأسطورة والأديان والتخيلات
ويأتي في القرن الحادي والعشرين مؤلف ظريف
متخصص في أدب التشويق والإثارة ولكن بطريقة ليست معتادة أبدا
يستخدم الرموز والخيال والعلم والدين
Dan Brown is back with another thriller so moronic you can feel your IQ points flaking away like dandruff.
“Origin” marks the fifth outing for Harvard professor Robert Langdon, the symbologist who uncovered stunning secrets and shocking conspiracies in “The Da Vinci Code” and Brown’s other phenomenally best-selling novels. All the worn-out elements of those earlier books are dragged out once again for Brown to hyperventilate over like some grifter trying to fence fake antiques.
This time around, t ...more
Dan Brown returns to his best with Origin. Much like some of his previous works he tackles religion, particularly Christianity, this time with the age-old debate of Creationism Vs Evolution.
Once again we are taken on a ride of codes and symbolism with Brown's biggest character Robert Langdon. The story is set in Spain where Robert comes across one of his former students who has now become world renowned in the science and technology fields and as a confirmed atheist, he sits well and truly on th ...more
There are some laughably bad and some insanely-good parts in this novel. If you like Dan Brown, your skin will already be toughened for the bad writing in parts and you will be thrilled with the genius parts. This novel, like Brown's others, will not pull at your heartstrings; it's very much an intellectual adventure--just like you'd expect from a Harvard professor who seems to have no sex drive nor any desire to fall in love. He's in love with ideas and he makes the reader fall in love with ide ...more
