    I guess this will fulfill my yearly quota for Mickey Mouse watch-clad academics who solve ancient conspiracy filled puzzles.- - - Updated 5/31: Sometimes, I feel like Dan Brown is my nemesis.In interviews, he comes off as a smart, earnest guy (if a bit of an academic dweeb*) who has an obsession for puzzles, old art and conspiracy theories, but also as a guy who has no idea how to laugh at himself. He seems to take his own work very seriously, an...

    Allow me to summarize every Dan Brown novel ever: An unsuspecting but intelligent protagonist is called up in the middle of the night. Someone very powerful and possibly related with the authorities needs his expertise that only the protagonist can provide. A well-known figure has died and that started a chain of events with catastrophic consequences. The authorities need our protagonist's help to solve a puzzle left by our instigator just before...

    Lasciate ogni speranza, voi ch’entrate. Or something. Statue of Dante by Enrico Pazzi, Piazza Santa Croce, FlorenceWhen I took this picture a couple of months ago, I thought Dante’s dour expression must be because he was pondering the horrors of hell. Now I think it’s because he was dwelling on the ignominy of having his masterpiece turned into this Dan Brown novel.By the fourth book in the series, the formula has been well-established: Rob...

    This is my first Dan Brown book and what can I say...it pretty much sucked. I was kind of shocked. Yes, I had read a lot of disparaging comments about Brown’s writing, but I pushed them aside, figuring his books must be at least entertaining. Otherwise why would he be so popular? And I rather like cheesy books. This one had a condescending tone though that grated on my nerves and sapped all the fun right out of the story. It was a tedious read...

    I really enjoyed this book. Thou personally I think it's a bit different than the other previous three books. The other three books have similarities in having a story plot that creating a really blur line between history and fiction. But in this fourth book, the history is like the inspiration of the fiction story, but I still liked it and gave it 3.5 stars.I really enjoyed the thrill and excitement of Langdon adventure. And as a former internat...

    CHAPTER 1Obscure reviewer Jane Steen sat in her modest study in cozy suburban Illinois and stared with horror at the object she held in her hands. Measuring nine-and-a-half by six-and-a-quarter by one-and-a-half inches, the object was encased in a shiny substance the overweight reviewer knew to be plastic.A book of some kind.To the little known reader’s brilliant mind and eidetic memory, identifying the book was a simple task. The labels affixe...

    Lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch'intrateorAbandon all hope, ye who enter here Dante and Virgil approach the entrance to Hell From the WorldofDante.org The heat is on. There is, of course, a deadline. A mad scientist of a Dante super-fan, who takes theatrical delight in referring to himself as The Shade, would like to bring about a great renaissance for humanity, a reawakening similar to the one that occurred following the Black Plague. As with that...

    June 18, 2013This book has Dan Brown written all over it. Just like the previous stories in this series, the entire book is about 24 hour long mystery/thriller. Robert Langdon wakes up at a hospital with no recollection of how he got there and as he starts to figure out what's going on, he starts getting deeper into a dangerous event that is about to take place. From the very first page, a chain of events starts to take place at a very fast pace....

    I've spent the past few years writing a book on Inferno, immersing myself in Dante's Commedia, and was looking forward to a fun read. While the book is decent it's still a disappointment. Despite having quite a few issues with Da Vinci Code, it was nevertheless a fun trip through the world of art and puzzle solving. Unfortunately Inferno reads more like a movie treatment with some factoids thrown in. At times it reminded me of the old Batman epis...

    To be very honest, I had a lot of expectations from this book and Dan Brown does not disappoint. I'm not entirely happy with the book; the second half of the book lacked certain things and was not quite as interesting as the first part. The research work for this book is done very painstakingly and it shows. 4.5 stars.

    I considered giving this two stars but then I realized there really wasn't anything I liked about it. It was so boring and it took me more than a week to get through. I know it's too much to ask that Dan Brown scale the heights of Angels & Demons or even The Da Vinci Code once again but I'm somewhat baffled as to how his writing has taken a turn for the worse and it started with that blasted The Lost Symbol. There's nothing much to say about this...

    Aaron turned on his computer and opened it to Goodreads.com, a widely used website for books. It was time. He looked around to be sure he was alone, and started writing ... his review of Dan Brown's Inferno.CHAPTER 253Aaron looked at the screen, wondering how best to approach the review. He had to be quick about it."There's no time!" he shouted even though no one else was around.They could be here at any minute, and he had to hurry. He had to mak...

    "Abandon hope all ye who enter here" ~ Dante's Divine Comedy.(Oh, Mr.Brown...the irony and the accuracy)----------------------------------------------------The last Dan Brown novel that I recall reading and enjoying to the hilt was Angels & Demons.

    I have something to ask before I start.Why doesn't Robert Langdon ever reference his previous adventures? Wouldn't you think it'd be a huge credibility booster (and probably score some points with the cute lady he's running with here) to drop into conversation something like "Well, I did save the world once before from an anti-matter toting lunatic, so this time it should be no sweat" or "Remember that time I discovered that Jesus was married to ...

In addition to his being handsome, he seemed to possess a sincerely good heart. In some distant, alternate life, Robert Langdon might even be someone ...

    “Just because the human mind can't imagine something happening, doesn't mean it won't.”3/5 StarsAnother typical Dan Brown book. It's been on my to-read list for ages, so is The Lost Symbol still. Now that the film will be released soon, I needed to get a grip and read it. And I, too, decided to skip Book 3 and move straight on to this one.My expectations are fulfilled. Mysteries, art, intruige, a race against time. But since I last read a Dan...

    Warning: If something in my review is marked with a spoiler tag, it really is a spoiler. I don't want to be the reason that a die-hard fan reads a spoiler and has the whole book ruined for him/her. So if that kind of thing matters to you, DON'T CLICK ON THE SPOILERS. If nothing else, Dan Brown's Inferno reminded me that the interrobang (?!) is a thing. Also, why use one ellipsis ... when you can use ... A MILLION?! I can't take this book seriousl...

    Kinda blah after the other Langdon entries. Getting a little used to the Langdon formula. Also, in the end it was not all that great of a story (in my opinion). Honestly, hard for me to believe they got another movie in the series out of this (I hope they changed a lot of it to make it more interesting! Hard to believe I just said I hoped they changed the story when making a movie - SACRELIDGE! )

    Bullet Review:Wow, this was an awful book. I will say that Dan Brown has improved his writing craft, as there seems to be better flow and not so many grammatical errors, but just barely. He still switches tenses, starting out nearly every chapter with a big, ugly blob of text about some historical landmark that may or may not have bearing on the plot.The characters are just bare outlines of people, like a grown-up coloring book, who somehow manag...

    I actually want to read this book so badly, it hurts!I am so excited- when I heard that Dan Brown was releasing a new book, I screamed so loud that another girl on my floor ran into my room and thought I was getting attacked! Brown is probably my top favourite author and I have loved each book that stars Robert as the main character. I loved 'The Lost Symbol' so much!! I have really high hopes for this next one :)Update:Now that I have finished t...

    Compared wid his previous offerings, definitely lacklustre (better than the lost symbol..though that doesnt amount to much) The author i felt wasnt able to resist dumping all his research into the book without any form of culling. All the random interesting nuggets and facts which made his previous books bestsellers were fascinating because they were very much a part of the ongoing story and seemed like a plausible thought-train in Robert langdon...

    The only reason I read this book is because of the subject matter. You see, though the apparent god of all things, Robert Langdon, professes to be a Dante scholar (even though he didn't get the clue bat hitting him repeatedly on the head until almost 100 pages into the book), I actually enjoy The Divine Comedy and have read it every year since I was 12. (A lady never reveals her age, but I'm turning 27 this year.) I own three translations of it a...

    3.5I’ve compiled a list for my review. Why it’s perfectly acceptable to compare Dan Brown novels with one night stands : 1.) The decision to pick up a Dan Brown book or a one night hookup comes down to the same thing- instant gratification. You pick it up knowing you’re going on a wild ride!2.) Waking up and seeing a Dan Brown book on your night stand almost makes you feel like you need a shower more than the morning after getting some stra...
