2.0 out of 5 stars Everything you wanted to know about Florence......., 14 July 2013
This review is from: Inferno: (Robert Langdon Book 4) (Hardcover)
As a tourist guide, Dan Brown's Inferno surpasses Fromers any day. Anything you ever wanted to know about Florence and Venice is described in brilliant detail, leaving nothing to the imagination. As a gripping yarn, however, Inferno is miles off course. It's riddled with repetition, leaving readers with the distinct impression that Mr. Brown was struggling to find content for the publisher. Without wishing to ruin the story for fans of Dan Brown, the plot follows Robert Langden's efforts to thwart a mad scientist hell bent on infesting the human race with an ingenious pandemic virus. The plot twists here, vaults there and re-writes itself more than once. Inferno is a far cry from Dan Brown's earlier efforts, making me wonder if his writing career has peaked early.

I am reading this book at the moment, and am bored witless. I find it actually quite unreadable! I was wondering if it was just me, or did anybody else think that they were reading a tourist guide to Florence, with the odd action sentence, added for good measure. So far, for me, this book is deadly. I enjoyed the previous books, well, two of them, the last one was ghastly!

That's what I thought about all the touristy details. It seemed to be inserted randomly into the plot and read like a travel guide. I got to the point where I skipped over the paragraphs of descriptive stuff about Florence and Venice. Here's Langden charging around Europe supposedly racing against the clock to find this virus, but he still has time to admire the scenery. Disappointing.
