Hey fellow Bloggers Anonymous, as my first post of ‘The Lost Musings’ era I’ve decided to write a review of Dan Brown’s book Inferno; not that it needs one as the majority of it’s readers will no doubt already be fans of the Robert Langdon series. I personally (an avid fan of the series) made the mistake of reading the first chapter of the book on Indigo’s website leading to me becoming attached to the book for the next few days.
Inferno although being part of the award-winning series does not require you to have read either of the previous three books (Angels & Demons, The Da Vinci Code or The Lost Symbol) in order to understand the storyline which makes it ideal for enthusiasts and new readers alike.
Robert Langdon through a quickly escalating series of problems forms a close bond with one of Inferno’s main characters Sienna Brooks; an incredibly gifted Doctor. Through learning more about Sienna’s past Robert and readers alike empathise and gain an utmost respect for her. As the story continues and more problems arise you are kept guessing as to what will happen to either or both of the characters.
Inferno’s brilliantly written by Dan Brown causing you to feel a range of emotions for the characters with the storyline itself causing you to challenge your own beliefs. The book ends with a dramatic climax that leaves you feeling uncertain about the future of the human race in real life terms.
In conclusion Inferno is a must read for Dan Brown fans and anyone who enjoys fast paced fictional thrillers; particularly those with an interest in art, architecture and history as it left me with a desire to visit historical art and architectural sites around the world. Having thoroughly enjoyed the book I’d have to rate the book 4 out of 5 stars.
I hope you enjoyed my first blog of this site and found it informative enough to encourage you to read the Dan Brown books
