Dan Brown's Inferno: Another Robert Langdon story

*read below for goodreads summary*

In his international blockbusters The Da Vinci CodeAngels & Demons, and The Lost Symbol, Dan Brown masterfully fused history, art, codes, and symbols. In this riveting new thriller, Brown returns to his element and has crafted his highest-stakes novel to date.

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 review:

Apparently, Dan Brown has clearly outdone himself with this book. Although I think Angels & Demons is the best among the series so far and this only comes second in my list. This is simply based on my opinion of the story. Truth be told, there's only a tiny bit of a gap between the two. But this book is really cool!

The story starts with Robert Langdon waking up to find himself in a hospital with tubes and all. He has this really nasty headache and the one thing he could always count on, his memory, can't help him. He wakes up to find company, a female doctor named Sienna Brooks. As Robert struggles to recall how on earth he ended up in Italy when he knows he's supposed to be in a lecture in Harvard. A woman named Vayentha comes soon in the hospital and goes after Robert Langdon, for reasons he doesn't know or understand. Yet. The story unfolds further to reveal a character named The Provost, the man who hired Vayentha, and owns a boat called The Mendacium, that houses a team of specialists for, well, Mendacium. Moving on, the book introduces yet another character. He's a Dante fanatic and created his very own Inferno.
