So it snowed yesterday. Luckily it melted today and didn‘t kill my flowers.

I‘m on disc 14 of 15 and I stayed in my car after work to get past a good part where I FINALLY found out the big announcement in the book. Very good book and I‘m looking forward to seeing how it ends.

Getting some nephew time tonight. I‘ve got him watching the Great British Baking Show while playing Candy Crush.

I‘m listening to Origin and just over half way. Getting more interesting!

Ah Dan, he‘s so controversial. He‘s criticized for weak writing... ok I get it but I like his stuff. And this one is SCIENCE-y. The fact I just said SCIENCE-y should let you realize how little I know about this. So I googled a LOT and that‘s what I like. 🤷🏼‍♀️ though I am a bit tired of the Langdon running with hot chic format, it was a quick educational thought provoking read 👍🏼👍🏼

My least favorite of the Robert Langdon series. Still fairly enjoyable but I wasn‘t sucked in like the previous ones in the series.

I enjoyed this one, even though the Robert Langdon books are incredibly formulaic. I like that the author truly researches the art and architecture he has his hero dashing past and I find myself repeatedly looking up the different art pieces and sites he mentions, but he definitely has a set pattern for his characters. (Thankfully, Langdon‘s Harris tweed wasn‘t mentioned umpteen times this book.) Less puzzles and codes, but still a fun read.

Scientists, atheists, and friends - including Harvard professor Robert Langdon - explore the wonders of the Guggenheim while anxiously awaiting their host. Langdon is enjoying the modern art exhibits thanks to his personal docent, Winston. As the host gears up for his groundbreaking discovery, he is silenced and his discovery will no longer see the light of day. Robert Langdon and Winston will stop at nothing to ensure scientific progress.

Forgive me for this photo,if you have spider phobias, but I was so tickled that the opening scene of this book is at the Guggenheim Bilbao Museum. I visited this museum two years ago and it was fun to read about some of the modern art exhibits, including Louise Bourgeois‘ giant spider “Maman.” No photos from that museum on my phone, but a similar statue from the less exotic locale of Bentonville, Arkansas, taken a few weeks ago at Crystal Bridges.

I enjoyed this book, but not near as much as the first four books in the series. It just didn't engage me like the other books did. I had the 'been there done that' feeling. The beginning was good, but somewhere along the line it lost my interest so much that I put it down for about three weeks.
When I finally finished it I enjoyed the ending, but it was a long road getting there.

I first reviewed this book just over a year ago (not long after joining Litsy) and my thoughts after this reread haven‘t changed. The Robert Langdon series as a whole is incredibly clever: reading them one after the other highlights how technology has progressed in a short space of time and also shows how Brown has uncannily preempted future technology. A frighteningly brilliant series.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Tearing through this Robert Langdon story - my main complaint is that there seem to be fewer puzzles packed in. Which leads to fewer irritating lectures from Langdon, but also less to keep me guessing with our protagonists. But I am very much enjoying "seeing" bits of Spain!

I adore Dan Brown‘s books, particularly the Robert Langdon ones. Origin certainly didn‘t disappoint me. Compelling plot, great twist and story that makes you change your mind about who the ‘baddies‘ are again and again. I hope this one is made into a film as I love Tom Hanks too.

The newest Robert Langdon book by Dan Brown. If you liked the DeVenci Code, or just happen to enjoy conspiracy books in general, then add this to your reading list.

Where are we from? Where are we going? This book delves into those questions and more. This book is fiction but all the science and mentions of religion and religious groups are all facts. Awesomely put together, Dan Brown took a new, interesting and almost believable route to answering those questions. Without giving anything away, It kind of has this iRobot feel to it, for those of you who have seen that movie but way more awesome! FedEx??

Cinfhen FEDEX was cool!!! 7mo

Not gonna lie - religion can be the origin of a lot of problems. It seems there are those who will use anything they can to justify their position.

I have to say this was a good read even if I don't agree on how the author described Irish soccer fans as hooligans and the fact he use any English saying "mate" when meeting one of the key character. If I am honest there was no need for the scene as it did not connect to the storyline.

Not the best Langdon story. The start had me gripped but the main story line dragged on until the very end and I found it difficult to finish.

This one had the non-stop action that you expect from a Dan Brown book. I feel, however, that the church conspiracy trope is getting a little worn. Also, most of the book was a build up to a big reveal that was a big flop for me. I don‘t want to put here without spoiler tags, but, suffice it to say, it was something that was a pretty typical SciFi theme. Often entertaining, but failed to deliver on the ending. 3⭐️

What do you read for in Dan Brown books? For me, I love the history, art, and architecture aspects. This book did not disappoint for that. Loved learning about Gaudi‘s work!

Finally finished it. Towards the end things felt a bit slow and I wished the end were more exciting than I found it to be. That said it was in keeping with a good Robert Langdon adventure latent with great historical references and some thought provoking questions and suggestions.

The book was okay but not really as amazing as the other Langdon books. The most disappointing thing was that the ending didn't surprise me at all but at least there was quite a lot of action. The translation also wasn't the best possible, there were some strange decisions made at times. Overall quite okay but just not as good as the previous ones. #translatedbooks

Loving it so far! Loved the first few Of Brown‘s Langdon books but wasn‘t a huge fan of Inferno and have therefore been skeptical about Origin but I‘m about a third of the way in and really enjoying it! The pup doesn‘t mind extra snuggly book time either!

Needed a break from the other books I am in the middle of reading. It was about on par with his other novels in the seties. I did enjoy the scifi aspects in the novel. Also was picked up to complete the series.

This is between so-so and a pick. The locations were great and I always enjoy a good conspiracy. But, despite the danger various characters were in and their frenetic race across Barcelona, I felt the story dragged. The answer to "where are we going?" is one I've seen before and is intriguing, and the reveal of The Regent's identity was suitably chilling, but I still felt this fell a little short.

Today I've been in the mood for the newest Robert Langdon novel and I have to say that I'm enjoying this a lot. It's nice to read something in Finnish every once in a while and actually get books from the library so this also fits into those categories nicely😄

My new job has me so busy and exhausted that I haven't had time to read, much less hang out on litsy. Definitely NOT part of the #newjobperks . 😧 This is actually the first book I've picked up all week and I'm hoping I can stay awake long enough to make a good start. 🤞

Just finished this one and I didn‘t really care for it. I thought it was predictable and a bit slow. Not the fast-paced thriller that I‘m used to from Dan Brown. The narrator was good but the story did not capture my interest.

I‘ve been on the library holds list for this one since it was released last year- it finally just came in last week and I blew through it, as predicted. I‘m always here for a Robert Langdon adventure 😉 even though I saw what was coming toward the end!
