Inferno review

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.

My thoughts: 

The last book by Dan Brown about Robert Langdon’s adventures.  The book’s been written in usual for Brown light manner. The book has the basic formulae in it’s core – adventures+the pieces of art and symbols in it+charming lady and a little bit of flirtation. Any of such book can make a nice movie.

My rating is 4 out of 5 just because it’s Brown and his books used to amaze me. But this time it was a little boring, predictable and very filmlike. Overpopulation idea was fresh and interesting. And Sienna’s story shocked me. But all in all that’s just fun read and no any special moments for me. Recommend to everyone who likes books-like-movies.

Rating: 4/5
