Highly recommended for Dan Brown fans (and Michael Crichton's too),
This review is from: Inferno: (Robert Langdon Book 4) (Hardcover)
Another typical Dan Brown's bestseller, with lots of chasing (too much for my taste, the book could be shorter without losing the main plot - this is the reason for my 4 stars rating), and the guilty parties are revealed only at the end, with plenty of surprises. Much better than the The Lost Symbol, and actually, getting close to The Da Vinci Code, so I believe this one has a better chance to become a movie.
The detailed descriptions of Florence and Venice are so rich in details about the art and history of these cities, that you wish you could travel there. I am not kidding, this book is a very good travel guide to those cities, and no doubt they will have now the "Inferno" tour, just as Paris and London have "The Da Vinci Code" tour.
Unlike Brown's latest Robert Langdnon series bestsellers, Inferno has a strong message about a real world problem, overpopulation. And Dan Brown deals with it in the good old style of Michael Crichton. That is why I think that MC fans who do not like Dan Brown, might take a chance and take a peek at Inferno. Highly recommended.
