"Fans of The Da Vinci Code rejoice! Professor Robert Langdon is again solving the mysteries of the universe."
"A brisk new book that pits creationism against science, and is liable to stir up as much controversy as The Da Vinci Code did. In Origin, the brash futurist Edmond Kirsch comes up with a theory so bold, so daring that, as he modestly thinks to himself in Brown’s beloved italics, “It will not shake your foundations. It will shatter them.” Kirsch is of course addressing The World, because that’s the scale on which Brown writes. Brown and serious ideas: they do fit together, never more than they have in Origin."
–-Janet Maslin, The New York Times
"Origin asks the questions Where do we come from? Where are we going? They are questions about humanity--but they could just as easily be questions about Robert Langdon. The Mickey Mouse watch-wearing, claustrophobic, always-near-trouble symbology professor is back in Dan Brown’s latest book. And just like he was in his original exploits (Angels & Demons and The Da Vinci Code), Dr. Langdon is once again wrapped up in a global-scale event that could have massive ramifications on the world’s religions. As he does in all his novels, Brown[‘s] extensive research on art, architecture, and history informs every page."
"Entertaining . . . Loyal fans of his globetrotting symbologist Robert Langdon will no doubt be thrilled with the fifth book in the series."
"Dan Brown is once again taking on the big questions: God and science and the future of the world. Origin is a familiar blend of travelogue, history, conspiracies and whodunit, with asides on everything from the poetry of William Blake to the rise and fall of fascism in Spain."
"The bestselling author of The Da Vinci Code is back with a new book that looks to the future. Origin features many of Brown’s signature themes. An evil, Catholic-adjacent cult, in this case the Palmarian Church, is behind some murders. Gems from art history are the key to solving the mystery. [And] if the reader is in it for the thrill and the twist, the faithful will be glad to hear that there’s a Da Vinci Code-esque background to Robert Langdon’s mission."

Locale- Spain- Check
Strong, independent, hot female sidekick- Check
Mickey Mouse Watch- Check. (just one or twice though)
Mention of claustrophobia- check
Mention of Harvard- check
Symbolism- surprisingly less
You get my drift.
The book does not deviate from his typical blue print at all.
Like Inferno, the idea in this book is something I liked a lot. But, it's not path breaking, Even though Dan Brown has infused some of his own thoughts into it.
It does hold your interest till the last page, because you don't want an unsolved mystery.
Thanks to Amazon for such a fast delivery and thanks to Dan Brown for such an amazing book.
A good read but it doesn't feel like the previous books. The book does lack some Langdon charm.
The book released internationally on 29th September. Having the book on 4th Oct. Kudos Amazon for on time delivery. Received hard cover for a good deal of discount. Hoping to finish it asap.
Digitally signed copies as promised.
I was once again reminded why Robert Langdon is one of the most recognised characters in modern literature.
Dan Brown's latest novel delivers everything that we have come to expect from him. Beautiful places described in enthralling detail, and their historic significance explained most satisfactorily. This time he concentrates on modern art, a deviation from his usual love for the classics. On the whole, a must read for every Dan Brown fan.
