Opinions of Origin: A Novel

Where we come from? Where we go? Yes, it's Dan Brown's new book. Yes, it is pulpy and ridiculous. But I have to say, it was really entertaining too. What happens with Brown is that he is a mediocre writer at best with really fascinating ideas. If you spend too much time analyzing individual scenes and sentences, then you will begin to see the cracks, large and small. Great cracks, like world-renowned scientists who throw absurd conclusions, and small cracks of world renown. Where do we come from? Where we go? Yes, it's Dan Brown's new book. Yes, it is pulpy and ridiculous. But I have to say, it was really entertaining too. What happens with Brown is that he is a mediocre writer at best with really fascinating ideas. If you spend too much time analyzing individual scenes and sentences, then you will begin to see the cracks, large and small. Big cracks like world-renowned scientists that throw absurd conclusions, and small cracks like world-renowned scientists who suddenly know nothing about a topic so that Robert Langdon can inform them (and the reader) about some interesting topic. And Langdon himself must be the most stupid genius ever written. He knows absolutely everything about everything until it is convenient for him not to know something so that someone can explain it to him. BUT, for some reason, the frames, codes and riddles of Brown are interesting enough to ... make everything go well. At least for me. I love all the information about history, science and religion. I love how you can search for the organizations mentioned and discover that they are all real. It's a plot about the written book, but sometimes that may be exactly what you need. No sense, circling the entertainment. In Origin, the famous scientist and billionaire Edmond Kirsch is about to make an announcement that will change the world. His research and technology have led him to make a discovery about the origin of humanity, as well as its future destiny, which will shake the foundations of the world, tear religions and change everything. He has essentially found answers to the two questions: Where do we come from? Where we go? It's hard not to get carried away by these universal questions. Then, when the announcement event goes terribly wrong and it seems that his discovery could be buried forever, Robert Langdon and Ambra Vidal must go to Spain to discover Kirsch's discovery. Throughout, all he could think was "what could his discovery be?" It would have to be something dramatic enough, something with impact ... and, well, I personally loved the revelation. Fake news now carries as much weight as real news. Origine is based on current events and hot topics to make it more relevant to today's world. Brown touches on topics such as "false news", the advancement of technology and artificial intelligence, and the dark corners of the Internet. He may not be an amazing writer, whatever that may mean, but he does play with universal thoughts, fears and questions. It is a very compelling story. I would not recommend this to anyone looking for excellent writing, well-developed characters and a lot of common sense. But if you want to run through a novel of almost 500 pages at a dizzying pace and escape from thinking for a while, then it's a lot of fun. Blog | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | YouTube ... more
