In keeping with his trademark style, Dan Brown, author of The Da Vinci Code and Inferno, interweaves codes, science, religion, history, art, and architecture in this new novel. Origin thrusts Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon into the dangerous intersection of humankind's two most enduring questions - and the earthshaking discovery that will answer them.

I rarely will do a book review, but I have noticed that a lot of, what I call Book Snobs, have complained about how similar this book is to all the others. Like most TV series or Movies made with a recurring character, the story is yes "similar" to all the rest. Get over it. It is entertaining and I always enjoy how Dan Brown describes the structures or places in that myself will never be able to see with my own eyes.

I feel I should mention, I guessed the outcome half way through the book, but that's part of the fun for me as I continue on just to make sure I was correct.

I throughly enjoyed this. I spend 65% of my life in a vehicle for work so I go through a lot of audiobooks. With that said, I have always enjoyed audiobooks read by Paul Michael. Especially his reads on Dan Brown novels.

So many 90's references I felt like I was remembering these from my own childhood. On her web series, The Flog, she looked liked she was so anxious about how this book would turnout. Let me tell you, there is no need worry. This book was great and a delight to listen to.
