Inferno by Dan Brown

Inferno by Dan Brown

I’ll admit it.  I can’t wait to see what happens to poor Robert Langdon next.  For a professor he sure does get himself into a lot of trouble.  In this book he wakes up in a hospital and has no clue how he got there.  A glimpse out of the window freaks him out entirely.  Last thing he remembers he was on campus in America.  The buildings out his window prove to him where he is – Florence, Italy.  But when, and how, did he get here?  Yep, poor Dr. Langdon has amnesia and it seems like there are people after him and trying to kill him.  Upsetting in normal circumstances, even more upsetting when you have no clue what these crazy killers want!

Was it completely over the top?  Yes.  Was it pretty cool how he incorporated symbolism and the words of Dante?  Yes.  Am I waiting for the next one?  Yes!  If you want great literature, go elsewhere.  If you want a wild ride through Italy (and other places I cannot mention lest I ruin the plot!) definitely give this one a spin.
