Mariano Gotor As far as I know, the burial place of Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand is the Royal Chapel, Granada, not El Escorial, as stated in the novel.

Greeting from Barcelona!

Debby Ledonne Dan Brown doesn’t disappoint.....lots of intrigue, suspense, plot twists. The basic premise, “where did we come from.....where are we going.” In light of the advances of technology, makes for good discussion.

Arpit Saxena Mystery, thrill, suspense and obviously a persisting drama characterize the novels of Dan Brown. From the release of his first novel Digital Fortress, his writing style has become more refined with every novel and eventually his latest book Origin is a testimony to his writing style. The story again presents a marvelous decrypting capacity of Prof. Robert Langdon and a beautiful, elegant lady Ambra Vidal caught in a wanton of accidental turn of events with every possible resource and person turning into a hostile one.
It’s a tautology that you will always get a good insight of several secret societies and various other symbols and monument but the predictable nature of novel starting with the death of some prominent authority and concomitantly ending with a revelation also manifests some inherent banality
The same thing happened with this book also. Although the talent of Brown to hold the readers in a captivating aura and motivating the binge-reading, well for this he deserves a 5 out of 5 rating.
I won’t divulge the climax, but believe the mystery and the contradictions presented regarding our reason to be in this world and finally the revelation will only leave you satisfied. In context of story, I would give it 3.5/5 and in context of amount of knowledge gained maybe 5/5 rating would be an understatement.

Lianne Burwell The whole book was based on Kirsch being an idiot. Surely he has read Asimov, but he didn't build some equivalent of the three laws into Winston, which allowed Winston to decide that his orders (make the presentation a success) allowed for murder. Shades of HAL in 2001: A Space Odyssey.
