I think once Dan Brown got the "Dan Brown Formula" down in "Angels and Demons", he has stuck to it and has created some very good stories from it. As usual, Robert Langdon has been called in to consult on the symbology of somethiing that leads to some kind of nefarious affair. He meets a girl who is his companion through the novel. Of course it's not the girl from the last novel. He runs through the art and architecture of a great city and shows us all the hidden symbolism of well know pieces while being chased by some secret group with nebulous intentions.
This time there are some differences. Neither the Masons nor the Catholic church are involved in the conspiracies. Although, the Catholic Church is given partial blame for the problem and is one reason the bad guy must act the way he did.
I did enjoy reading "Inferno". I was lucky enough to have visited Florence and I loved the depictions of the art and sculptures of the city. I was intrigued by much of the the background information on "Dante's Inferno". And of course, the action was exciting and played out well.
