Professor Robert Langdon returns in the fifth of Dan Brown's wonderful books, "Origin".
This time the story is set in Spain. I am sure that Barcelona and Familia Sagrada in particular, will attract even more tourists now. Langdon's friend and a tech genius Edmond Kirsch, is giving a talk at the Guggenheim museum. He promises to reveal the secret to life and universe, to answer the questions: Where do we come from? Where are we going?, the fundamental questions of human existence.
In my opinion it's one of the best books of the year. It is an adventure, but a very thought-provoking one. A fantastic thriller that unites art and technology, science and religion, history and poetry, symbols and codes, and a bit of romantic love.
I find his ideas about science and religion at the end of the book fascinating!
