Blurb
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.

 

Review

On its own, Inferno is a fabulous read with even more unexpected turns than Brown's previous books. Everything is thought out and is another spectacular work in relation to the research and tie ins with history. The problem that I had was the many similarities to others in the series and the end takes a turn toward the silly. You can read Inferno without first reading others in this series. There are no references to previous story lines.
