” Where did we come from and where are we going.” The ultimate mystery? Creation versus evolution? God versus science? What is waiting for us? Big questions, but not for a Dan Brown novel.
Brown’s latest suspense thriller, Origin, couples Robert Langdon with a wonderful cast to bring forth this suspense filled story in all its glory. Set in Spain, the novel couples the story line with incredible imagery. Brown states : ” All art, architecture, locations, science and religious organizations in this novel are real.” It adds greatly, to drawing the reader deeper and deeper into the story.
Edmund Kirsch, an eccentric billionaire and futurist, claims to have found the answer to life’s ultimate questions. The story conflicts Christians with atheists, adds a good dose of the Spanish Monarchy and even romance. Of course, the ending will surprise.
There is not a lot more that needs to be said about a Dan Brown novel. I highly recommend the book. Quite possibly the story warrants a screenplay. You never seem to tire of Langdon and you will find yourself with a new outlook regarding artificial intelligence. Prescient? I think so.
