NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE With the publication of his groundbreaking novels The Da Vinci Code, The Lost Symbol, and Angels & Demons, Dan Brown has become an international bestselling sensation, seamlessly fusing codes, symbols, art, and history into riveting thrillers that have captivated hundreds of millions of readers around the world. Now, Dan Brown takes readers deep into the heart of Italy . . . guiding them through a landscape that inspired one of history’s most ominous literary classics. “The darkest place in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis.” Harvard professor of symbology Robert Langdon awakens in a hospital in the middle of the night. Disoriented and suffering from a head wound, he recalls nothing of the last thirty-six hours, including how he got there . . . or the origin of the macabre object that his doctors discover hidden in his belongings.      Langdon’s world soon erupts into chaos, and he finds himself on the run in Florence with a stoic young woman, Sienna Brooks, whose clever maneuvering saves his life. Langdon quickly realizes that he is in possession of a series of disturbing codes created by a brilliant scientist—a genius whose obsession with the end of the world is matched only by his passion for one of the most influential masterpieces ever written—Dante Alighieri’s dark epic poem The Inferno.      Racing through such timeless locations as the Palazzo Vecchio, the Boboli Gardens, and the Duomo, Langdon and Brooks discover a network of hidden passageways and ancient secrets, as well as a terrifying new scientific paradigm that will be used either to vastly improve the quality of life on earth . . . or to devastate it.      In his most riveting and thought-provoking novel to date, Dan Brown has raised the bar yet again. Inferno is a sumptuously entertaining read—a novel that will captivate readers with the beauty of classical Italian art, history, and literature . . . while also posing provocative questions about the role of cutting-edge science in our future.

M'eh

Where to begin? One thing I enjoy about all Dan Brown books so far is the scavenger hunt scenarios his main character Robert Langdon experiences. I find them interesting, especially when we get to travel to different locales with the character. But somewhere along the line, in Robert's increasingly outlandish affairs he keeps getting drawn into, it started to get boring. In Angels and Demons, the first Dan Brown book I read, it was new and exciting. With Inferno, it started getting stale. Actually, it started getting stale a bit in Lost Symbol. But at least with the other efforts, there was resolution. In this one, there was none. The bad guy accomplished his bad deed. I know not all endings can be happy, but we sort of expect it with these types of stories, where the character keeps getting into stuff. Like with the Die Hard movies. And the Indiana Jones movies. So, to end this, the overall production was ok. The narration was ok. The story itself . . . not so ok. I don't think I can recommend this book to another person. And I am not wondering if I am willing to read another Dan Brown book.
