Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 25 November 2013
Although "The Da Vinci Code" swept the world, I haven't actually read it, or any of Dan Brown's output, until now. I don't think I have missed anything!. The prose in "Inferno" stumbles between the pretentiously flowery and the embarrassingly clunky; the dialogue is B-movie magic; and the characters purely one-dimensional. The story starts as a reasonably fun "mad billionaire wants to wipe out mankind" type romp, but descends into ridiculous farce in the last quarter. There are so many utterly unbelievable twists that I can guarantee you won't care whose side who is on, or what the hell is supposed to be happening.

The art works that Mr Brown visits in his narrative are nicely described and quite interesting, though why the "baddie" of the piece should want to create such a deviously complex clue to his far-fetched plot is not really explained. If he wanted the world to know what he had done, he could just have written a letter. But then I don't know that many mad billionaires with a Dante obsession! How do nutters get to be billionaires anyway?
