I loved this book.

Then again I love all of Dan Brown’s books, even Digital Fortress and Deception Point.

Especially Deception Point.

Origin, however, may be my favorite yet.

Origin brought me back to Angels and Demons and addresses the battle between religion and science specifically around creation.

Who are we? Where did we come from? And most importantly, where are we going?

In true Robert Langdon fashion, the book has an intelligent woman that happens to be beautiful, a helpful aide whose role is mysterious, and a can’t-believe-this-is-happening-over-a-few-days pace.

There’s also a gruesome death. It wouldn’t be a Dan Brown book without one.

What makes Origin stand apart from others is how it addresses the role of technology, and how it infiltrates every factor of our lives and how it will continue to do so.

As with all of Dan Brown’s books, I read the book in a single day and loved every minute of it. While I predicted several of the twists, Brown shocked me in the end.

And now, we wait for the Robert Langdon’s next adventure. I, for one, can’t wait to read it.

If you love thrillers such as these, you’ll love I Am Pilgrim and Red Sparrow. I post a book review every Friday. You can find them all here.

Much like a third party presidential candidate, Tiffany Trump, or having cash at all times, your body’s skin get overlooked. Which is a shame, because it is amazing. It’s well…
