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.

I enjoy Dan Brown books. I liked the fact that this one was current and had lots of relative symbology to the modern world. The ending was somewhat anti climactic, but it was a good read nonetheless.
Maybe, I have read all of Dan Brown's books and this has the same page turning rhythm as the others. I enjoyed it, but a one time read.
Yes, as always Dan Brown produced another page turner.
He provides a tone to the characters. If I had just read the book I may had interpreted the personality of the characters differently.
It was like all his others.
If you are a Dan Brown fan, it is well worth the time.
Crafting allegory, art and ancient history, Dan Brown offers his devoted readers the famed protagonist Robert Langdon. Caught in a web of intrigue, danger and confusion, Langdon traverses some of the most beautiful Italian landmarks to solve a mystery centuries in the making before it's too late.
A lot of repetition. Protagonist is not likeable, relatable, or interesting. He really seems like an arrogant prick, more concerned about his Mickey Mouse watch than stopping a world wide pandemic. He's suppose to be very smart, as he keeps trying to remind us, but needs to use a smart phone to look up the simplest facts. It would make an okay drinking game based on how many times he repeats the same words and phrases. Dan Brown's vocabulary is lacking. He also seems to have a juvenile obsession with penises.
