    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

    I happen to like Dan Brown. I feel like I learn something about art and history and symbolism with every book. This book is mostly set in Italy and will give you a glimpse into Dante's Inferno.

    If you liked The Lost Symbol and the Da Vinci Code, then you'll like this one.

    Prodigal Summer weaves together three stories of human love within a larger tapestry of lives in southern Appalachia. At the heart of these intertwined narratives is a den of coyotes that have recently migrated into the region. Deanna Wolfe, a reclusive wildlife biologist, watches them from an isolated mountain cabin where she is caught off-guard by Eddie Bondo, a young hunter who comes to invade her most private spaces and her solitary life.

    "Excellent Story"
    Overall

    This book started out a bit slow for me, but since I enjoyed the author's other book, The Poisonwood Bible, I stuck it out. I'm glad I did. Once the story got rolling, it was a great listen. Not riveting, like a who-done-it, but thoughtful, well written, well read, and ecologically and environmentally thought provoking.

  • Going Postal: Discworld #29

    Arch-swindler Moist von Lipwig never believed his crimes were hanging offenses, until he found himself with a noose around his neck, dropping through a trap door, and falling into...a government job? Getting the moribund Postal Service up and running again, however, may be an impossible task. Worse, the new Postmaster could swear the mail is talking to him.

    "Love the humor"
    Overall

    This is my first Pratchett book and I have to disagree with some other reviewers. I have never read any of the Discworld books, but did not have any trouble following this book. I loved the dry humor, the sarcastic placement of characters, and the overall wit. I think I'll have to read some of those Discworld books now.
