- A Novel
- By: Dan Brown
- Narrated by: Paul Michael
- Length: 7 hrs and 32 mins
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.
This was so boring and it was the abridge version

Just awful !
Dan Brown ought to be ashamed. I am an avid reader and book on tape listener. Literally hundreds of books. Rarely do I not finish a book because it is so bad. I didn’t finish this one. The final straw is when Robert Langdon is knocked unconscious for minutes(not seconds) and immediately recalls an Internet model of a church under construction in order to find a way out. Mind you, he didn’t know he would be at this church. The priest, WHO LIVES THERE, doesn’t know how to get them out, but Langdon, who was just comatose, does. Not to mention the police have the church surrounded, there are dead officers, but they don’t go to where Langdon is because the priest tells them to wait on the medics. Sadly, this was the last ridiculous situation that made me quit reading; there were many more before this. Oh, and I still had apprx 3 more hours to go. Last dan brown for this reader.
