Inferno : (Robert Langdon Book 4) Paperback
by Dan Brown
Part of the Robert Langdon series
NOW A MAJOR FILM STARRING TOM HANKS AND FELICITY JONES.
Florence: Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon awakes in a hospital bed with no recollection of where he is or how he got there.
Nor can he explain the origin of the macabre object that is found hidden in his belongings.
A threat to his life will propel him and a young doctor, Sienna Brooks, into a breakneck chase across the city.
Only Langdon's knowledge of the hidden passageways and ancient secrets that lie behind its historic facade can save them from the clutches of their unknown pursuers.
With only a few lines from Dante's Inferno to guide them, they must decipher a sequence of codes buried deep within some of the Renaissance's most celebrated artworks to find the answers to a puzzle which may, or may not, help them save the world from a terrifying threat...

Review by aadyer
An engrossing thriller, which as the age old adage has it, was a real page turner. Very intriguing. Not quite enough Dante for me, being as I am a real fan, but none the less entertaining, intriguing & mysterious. I did have the feeling that at times, it felt as though it was the travelogue of a very rich American Tourist. Nothing against that, but others have done it better. Worth a look for those with an interest in Italy, The Divine Comedy, Florence or those who like being thrilled.
Review by PennyAnne
Utter rubbish but an entertaining read. I liked it mostly because the locations used are generally places I have visited and I enjoyed being able to really visualise where the action was occurring. But the book is typical Dan Brown - not very well written, not all that mysterious and then with the "shock" near the end of the book. But it is definitely a page turner and great when you just don't want to focus on anything too serious.
Review by rlangston
His writing isn't very sophisticated, and the constant lecturing is irritating, but Dan Brown does know how to make you turn the pages.
Review by martensgirl
A hilarious romp rather similar to The Da Vinci Code- Brown has stuck to his successful formula. The plot is so ridiculous I was chuckling along. It would appear that Brown decides to include a certain trendy topic in his book and then has to write some appalling prose about it. Brown's fetishes for this book include drones, viruses, geometric growth and PCR.
