The Origin could very easily pass as one of Dan Brown’s sterling creation and there is a good reason why.
The story line is amazing and it follows one renowned scientist, Robert Langdon, a Harvard Professor of Symbology and Religious Iconology as he arrives to witness the unveiling of a discovery that “would change the face of science for good”. The host for the unveiling, at the ultramodern Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is Edmond Kirsch, a renowned billionaire and global figure whose works and inventions have touched many spheres of human life. He was one of Professor Langdon’s students at the university.
A well designed presentation turns chaotic and Langdon is forced to flee Bilbao, in an effort to preserve Kirsch’s discovery and shake off the sudden threat on their own lives. Apparently, Kirsch’s presentation was more provocative than he had been led to believe. The journey takes him to Barcelona in quest of a cryptic password to unlock the secrets unleashed by Kirsch. With him is Ambra Vidal, an elegant museum director who had worked with Kirsch in staging the event gone sour.
They find themselves evading enemies of all kind, some going as high as the Spain’s Royal Palace and people who will stop at nothing until Edmond Kirsch dies with his secret. It’s up to the duo to unravel enigmatic symbols and mysteries to discover the secret that everyone is willing to kill for.
What they discover is stunning and would change the way we know earth and being forever.
