Origin is a brisk new book (september 2017) that pits creationism against science. The book is absolutely entertaining, and all the topics discussed in the novel are quite interesting, such as fake news, artifical intelligence, the beginning of life, and darwinism against creationism. In my opinión, the big point in the story is the addtition of an AI character, that is not only an assistant, but he plays an important role taking important decissions by his own.2Edmond Kirsch, a forty-year old billionaire, atheist and inventor. He is very superstitious, arrogant but insecure. He was a former student of Robert Langdon at Harvard, a computer genius that could be compared with the real life person Elon Musk. He is the main character in the book.3  Famous scientist and billionaire Edmond Kirsch is about to make a world-changing announcement. His research and technology have led him to make a discovery about the origin of humankind, as well as their future destiny, that will shake the foundations of the world, tear apart religions, and change absolutely everything. At the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, before the reveal, Kirsch is killed.Deciding to release Kirsch’s discovery, Langdon steal Kirsch’s phone and follow directions from Winston (artificial intelligence and Kirsch´s alter ego) to reveal the interrupted presentation to the world. Langdon goes to Barcelona, to find the password to reveal the presentation at Kirsch’s home. Then, he goes to Barcelona´s Supercomputing Center and shares on the internet the kirsch´s presentation. With five hundred millions of viewers, Kirsch explains that humanity was created by natural events, then reveals that in fifty years humanity and technology will merge, creating an utopic future free of religious conflicts. The presentation stuns the world and creates widespread debate. At the end, Winston reveals Langdon that he orchestrated Kirsch´s murder to make him a martyr. 4 No, I can not. I think the autor makes a well ballanced ending in this book. 6 The story sets in Spain, at the present time. It starts in Bilbao, then the action sets in Barcelona, at Sagrada Familia, Montjuic and Casa Milá. Also some characters and action are set in Madrid.
