Dan Brown - "Origin" (Robert Langdon Series) October 3, 2017

"In keeping with his trademark style, Dan Brown, author of The Da Vinci Code and Inferno, interweaves codes, science, religion, history, art, and architecture into this new novel. Origin thrusts Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon into the dangerous intersection of humankindís two most enduring questions, and the earthshaking discovery that will answer them."

https://www.amazon.com/Origin-Novel-.../dp/0385514239

It's Robert Langdon which means I'll be reading it. Hopefully he takes him in another direction. As much as I like Langdon going all over Europe, I think it's time he does something different. Of course The Lost Symbol brought him to the US, and look how that turned out.

yeah I'll read it but not hope for too much. I did like the Dante's Inferno book better than the Lost Symbol

Same here; I'll read it but my expectations have gone way down.

When reading Inferno, i had fun following the story along on Google Earth. I also would not have remembered LS if it wasnt mentioned earlier

I'll read any Dan Brown book, though I was hoping for a non-Robert Langdon novel. I wish Brown would mix it up, as I liked Deception Point a lot.

But I'll definitely still read Origin.

I was lucky enough to read it while in Florence. Read at a furious pace, then went to the sites where the action took place. That was fun.

Inferno was really, really bad. That being said Dan has built up enough good will with that series that I'll still bite on this one. Fingers crossed.
