Book Review: Inferno by Dan Brown


ImageClassifying Dan Brown’s book as a thriller is an understatement. In a combination of lessons in art, history, philosophy, sociology, environment, and literature, Dan Brown delivers this magnificent piece of narrative.

If you haven’t read any books for Dan Brown before, I suggest you do that before you tackle Inferno, as they will ease you into understanding the mastery of Dan Brown’s writings.

When Robert Langdon wakes up in a hospital in Rome, he has no recollection of how he got there and why there is a bullet in his head. The secrets of Robert’s journey begin to unravel as he begins to solve clues from a mysterious object he finds in his jacket. Page by page, Dan Brown takes us through the journey of Robert through the depths of Dante’s poem “Inferno”, which turns out to be the basis of a sinister plan by a maniac with radical views.

Not only is the story told in a compelling style, but it also delivers a message that our society is being blinded to — or refuses to see at all. I found myself, at more than one occasion, rooting for the antagonist.

The amount of research it took Dan Brown to write this book is enough on its own to give Inferno a five-star review. This book is a must read and I believe will leave its mark on the literary world for generations to come.
