Dan Brown’s highly anticipated novel Inferno made it’s debut in bookstores yesterday. Inferno is the fourth book to feature Harvard professor Robert Langdon (following in the footsteps of Angels & Demons, The Da Vinci Code, and The Lost Symbol). According to reports, the book is set in Italy and has Langdon going up against a villain who has control of a powerful new science that could bring about the end of the world. Langdon must match wits with the foe using clues from the famous poem Dante’s Inferno.
I can’t wait to get my hands on Inferno. Although each of the Langdon books have been controversial, the underlying stories have been fantastic reads. I am grateful to my friends Sandy, Jacob, and Mike who all recommended The Da Vinci Code to me a few months after it was released in 2003. I finished the book in only a few days and enjoyed it immensely; within a couple of months, I had completed all of his other publications as well.
Now it is my turn to recommend Dan Brown to you. If you have not had the chance to take in one of his books, give it a go. Start with Angels & Demons (in my humble opinion, his best work) and if you like it, work through the others. Who knows, I may just see you in line at the bookstore in the near future, ordering your copy of Inferno.
