Inferno

Dan Brown’s books following the adventures of the Harvard professor and symbolist, Robert Langdon, have grasped my heart ever since I sat and watched Angels & Demons. Once I discovered they were books, I made out to read them as soon as I possibly could. I have the all on my Kindle and have slowly progressed my way through them due to various things – mostly at the time it was school and now it’s other things in life. But I can officially say that I have finished Inferno and am happy to report that I’m in love with just as I have been in love with all the rest of them!

Inferno-coverIn 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.

This book combines all of my favorite things just as it always does: a puzzle to be figured out, a race against the clock, and something with the potential to change the world. Seriously, the whole Da Vinci Code had me on the edge of my seat, but Inferno had me gripped from the moment I first started reading it. It just took time for me to read because I had to find the time to read it among every other book series I was being turned on to.

I have thoroughly loved ever single one of the Robert Langdon adventures by Dan Brown, but I must say that this has been my absolute favorite of them all. I hope he continues them, but I will be content if this is where he leaves us with Robert after basically his greatest adventure in my opinion. If not, then I’m ready for another exciting ride.
