Dan Brown has yet again come with another moronic thriller that can make your IQ points flake away like dandruff. The author of Inferno and The Da Vinci Code has interwoven history, architecture art, science, codes, science, and religion together in the Origin audiobook.
In ‘Origin,’ the Harvard professor, Robert Langdon, goes for the fifth outing, to uncover pending shocking conspiracies and stunning secrets in “The Da Vinci Code” and other phenomenally best-selling novels Brown authored.
Specifically, the Harvard symbologist dangerously intersects two of the most enduring questions about humankind and gives an earthshaking discovery to answer them. Brown hyperventilates all elements that seemed worn-out in earlier books.

Origin Audiobook Synopsis
Robert Langdon, the professor of symbology, attends an event at the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao where there was going to be a major announcement. Langdon’s former student, Edmond Kirsch, who has become a billionaire celebrity because of his genius inventions and futurist technologies, is set to make two earth-shattering scientific revelations.
At the commencement of the event, hundreds of people gathered are captivated by the fact that it will be an utterly original presentation, but Langdon suspects that it might be more controversial than many think. Rumours are that Kirsch had essentially found answers to the two fundamental questions of human existence: Where do we come from? Where are we going?
Unfortunately, chaos disrupts the meticulously orchestrated evening, and Kirsch is murdered before disclosing the breakthrough discovery. Noticing imminent threats, Langdon and the elegant museum director, Ambra Vidal, who worked with Kirsch to stage the high-profile event, escape Bilbao. The interesting thing about this is that Winston, Kirsch’s beyond-the-cutting-edge artificial intelligence, offers necessary background information, advice, and other life-saving escape tips.
Together with the “future queen of Spain,” they flee to Barcelona trying to uncover Kirsch’s secret discovery as they dodge police questioning and a loony religious hit man who might have silenced Kirsch. Whilst on their code-breaking, clue-solving spree, they encounter clues that possibly might bring them face-to-face with Kirsch’s shocking discovery.
Origin is a very compelling tale that offers pure enjoyment what others might refer to as brain candy.

About the author
Brown is a mediocre-at-best writer with fascinating ideas. He is the author of various bestselling novels. Some of his best works include Angels & Demons and The Da Vinci Code followed by Inferno and The Lost Symbol.
The Da Vinci Code has been considered amongst the bestselling novels of all time due to the way it draws intellectual debate among many scholars and readers. Brown’s novels have been published in almost 52 languages.
He became famous to the point that in 2005, TIME Magazine named him as one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World. Reason being that he was able to keep the publishing industry afloat with a number of controversial topics.
Being a son of a church organist and a mathematics teacher, Brown found the paradoxical interplay between science and religion fascinating when still on a prep school campus. Such themes are what formed the basis of most of his books. As a graduate of Amherst College and Phillips Exeter Academy, he returned there to teach English prior to focusing on full-time writing.
He is currently working on a new book and also preparing a Columbia Pictures film version for the new novel.
