Regurgitation if ever I've seen it...
, 20 Nov. 2013
This review is from: Inferno: (Robert Langdon Book 4) (Hardcover)
To put it bluntly, we've heard it all before. Throughout the whole book I felt like I'd already read it. The same pattern follows time after time after time in all of the Langdon books:
Langdon discovers an unexplainable object/piece of information-----him and his new found partner (whoever it may be that is conveniently a well connected and resourceful genius) run to an ancient city, not really knowing where they need to be in the hope of evading the various assassins/authorities that are after him (not sure how I would fare up trying to escape an armed assassin AS WELL AS an SAS team after waking up with a bullet wound and amnesia, Langdon is obviously a better person than I!).......Whilst on the run Langdon has a sudden epiphany of where he needs to be and what the clue means......They get there.....New clue.....new method of escape.....new epiphany. And so the cycle continues through every single one of the 462 pages.
Despite the repetitiveness I was enjoying the story until I reached an incredibly disappointing and not very well thought out ending. Should have stopped at Angels and Demons, and at the very least, The Lost Symbol.
