When a NASA satellite discovers an astonishingly rare object buried deep in the Arctic ice, the floundering space agency proclaims a much-needed victory, a victory with profound implications for NASA policy and the impending presidential election. To verify the authenticity of the find, the White House calls upon the skills of intelligence analyst Rachel Sexton. Accompanied by a team of experts, including the charismatic scholar Michael Tolland, Rachel travels to the Arctic and uncovers the unthinkable.

Great story and great performance. The only thing I didn't like is that sometimes the author takes half a chapter to describe a situation that was understood from the first couple of sentences.
i.e. Three characters are stuck in the snow. We get it, it's cold...hello, it's snow! No need to go half a chapter explaining how cold it is. You get the point.
Other than that it's a great story, I didn't figure out who the "bad guy" was until it was revealed.

It's never wise to talk to strangers...and that goes double when they're dead. Unfortunately, seventeen-year-old Anna Morgan has no choice. Resting on a park bench, touching the turnstile at the Metro station - she never knows where she'll encounter a ghost. These mental hitchhikers are the reason Anna has been tossed from one foster home and psychiatric institution to the next for most of her life.

First of all, I love books about ghosts or people being able to talk to dead people, etc. I started reading this book and then went to the audible version to give it another try thinking it may get my attention that way.
It is sooooooo boring!! I could stand 6 chapters only. I feel like it is a good story but it has too many unnecessary characters. Too many conversations that are irrelevant. It's almost like someone telling you a good story and then sidelining to another story that is not relevant and then coming back to the main story but then you feel lost, etc.
I got this book based on the great reviews and like I said I think it has a good story behind but I was very disappointed. Waste of money for me :(

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.

Awesome story by Dan Brown. Kept me on the
edge every chapter. A must! It is one of those stories that truly makes you wonder “what if?”. I absolutely enjoyed this story.
