Origin

The latest novel by Dan Brown to review this time rather than a film. Origin being the fifth book involving Robert Langdon by Dan Brown after The Da Vinci Code, Angels & Demons, The Lost Symbol (the only book not been made into a film) and Inferno.

Origin is set in Spain starting at the Guggenheim Museum before moving to Barcelona and involves one of Langdon’s former student, the Spanish royal family and a Bishop. Whilst like The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons it’s set against religion it isn’t as much a race against time solving clues though has a couple of clues and rather than time it’s against being caught.

I won’t do any spoilers here but I found this better than Inferno and goes back to The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons where I would read for hours into the early hours of the morning as got gripped, this would make a good film I reckon. The Arts, Museum and Cathedrals are as per Brown’s previous novels all real which I think adds to the story. If you like Dan Brown’s previous books this is a must read though if new to the Robert Langdon character the previous books are best read before this (or at least The Da Vinci Code).
