Robert Langdon, Harvard professor of symbology and religious iconology, arrives at the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao to attend the unveiling of a discovery that "will change the face of science forever". The evening's host is his friend and former student, Edmond Kirsch, a forty-year-old tech magnate whose dazzling inventions and audacious predictions have made him a controversial figure around the world. This evening is to be no exception: he claims he will reveal an astonishing scientific breakthrough to challenge the fundamentals of human existence. But Langdon and several hundred other guests are left reeling when the meticulously orchestrated evening is blown apart before Kirsch's precious discovery can be revealed. With his life under threat, Langdon is forced into a desperate bid to escape, along with the museum's director, Ambra Vidal. Together they flee to Barcelona on a perilous quest to locate a cryptic password that will unlock Kirsch's secret.-- Adapted from book jacket.

"Well, the meek were supposed to inherit the earth, but instead it has gone to young- the technically inclined, those who stare into video screens rather than into their own souls."

I found this book to be both enjoyable and thought provoking! Despite the many characters involved, the plot was easy to follow, suspenseful, and included twists along the way. I highly recommend this book!

Danno hit a home run with TDVC, but lack luster follow ups. Origin does not hold the magic and his same ol, same ol script has gotten boring. A yawner . All filler and no thriller

Good page turner. Finished it in one day. A variation on a theme. Langdon is being pursued by bad guys again with a lady in tow. A big secret will be revealed. Not deep but enjoyable. I was fortunate to get an Express copy of this book otherwise I was # 143 in line.

Terrible description of this book by Amazon. Maybe they didn't read it or they hate Dan Brown's books. Please change the description
