Origin – Dan Brown

As usual, but first?

“Langdon had always enjoyed the challenge of modern art—primarily the exploration of why particular works were hailed as masterpieces: Jackson Pollock’s drip paintings; Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup cans; Mark Rothko’s simple rectangles of color.” Page 17.

Oh, oh, me! Me! Pick me, I can answer that one. Pollock’s drip paintings can be seen as narrative, and I know I felt Rothko’s painting, especially the New York ones in London — Tate Modern. I understand the challenge of modern art, but it takes an open mind, not too mired in previous beliefs. I enjoy some of the modernists. Dovetails perfectly with another book I started reading, about Georgia O’Keefe.

The opening section of the book, first hundred pages were laborious, other than the excitement I get from some “modern art.”

Further along, is it ok to like a computer? There was always Hal.

Nobody understands that joke anymore, “I’m sorry Dave, I’m afraid I can’t do that right now.” 2001

Didn’t not make the cut.

Success is the ability to go
from one failure to another
with no loss of enthusiasm.
Page 427

As expected, a thrill ride, good to the last page.
