DAN BROWN'S INFERNO: ANOTHER MASTERPIECE

By

If you haven't heard the Da Vinci Code author, Dan Brown has finally published a new book, called the Inferno. Inferno like the others is partly influenced by religious beliefs in this case, Inferno the first part of Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy. Dante's inferno describes the division of hell based on the sins one commits whilst on earth. While being based on Dante's Inferno, the book doesn't focus on the subject of hell rather on the Villain's penchant for Dante's inferno and its implied relationship with the problems that an unchecked World population could bring about.


I recently got the fourth installation of acclaimed author, Dan Brown's chronicle of the adventures of Robert Langdon, sees the Harvard scholar and his new companion Sienna Brooks in the city of Florence (then Venice and Istanbul) taking in its rich art, cultural and architectural landmarks while trying to escape capture by agents of a shadowy organisation called the "Consortium" and security operatives of the WHO (World Health Organization).
In Inferno, the stakes are raised even higher, as Robert Langdon is not just tasked with saving his own life (after suffering a memory loss) but that of the world using his knowledge of ancient symbols, history and landmarks as he trys to find a virus using clues from Dante Alighieri's Inferno before the viral outbreak occurs.
What I really love about Dan Brown's books is his ability to recreate the architectural landmarks of the cities with words, making the reader feel like he/she is tagging along with Robert Langdon. Inferno like all Dan Brown's novels is filled to the brim with suspense and is totally addictive, so much that I just had to finish reading it within a day of obtaining the eBook.
