Origin continues Dan Brown’s novels about the adventures (and misadventures) of protagonist Robert Langdon. This one is set in Spain, primarily Madrid and Barcelona, and attempts to reconcile the conflict of faith and science and the questions of where did we come from and where are we going.¬†Yes, this one comes with many of the typical flaws of his other novels. Just don’t zoom in too closely and enjoy the story as a whole, rather than picking apart the inconsistencies and errors. As someone who struggles with issues of religion and science, this hit a home run with me philosophically.
