    In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology, Robert Langdon, is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces: Dante’s Inferno. Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante’s dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust...before the world is irrevocably altered.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Dan Brown and/or Paul Michael?

    Dan Brown is very good at mixing art and science in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Florence- so yes, I would endure another book by Brown. Paul Michael's narration is excellent.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The moral relativism of the ending was difficult to swallow.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Without a doubt, Brown hooks you with the perilous predicament of Robert Langdon in the first chapter.


    Do you think Inferno needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No. Brown's point was made effectively.


    Any additional comments?

    Unfortunately, I didn't let myself enjoy the experience until I suspended my bias that I was being carried along in another typically contorted Brownian plot that combines him with another uber-genius female in a deadline-induced race to save the world. Once I gave in to Dan Brown's formula, just as one would give into an Conan Doyle plot line, the book became very enjoyable and exciting. My advice to the reader is abandon all critical reasoning and surrender to Dan Brown.
