Review: Dan Brown’s Inferno

Available Now:  Dan Brown’s Inferno

***3/5 stars

Against all logic (I mean, how much trouble can one Harvard professor get into, anyway?) Robert Langdon wakes up to find himself in another race against time to solve a mystery laced with historical intrigue and more symbology, and with yet another female companion to boot.

Recommended readers:

  • If you like a nice page turning adventure novel…
  • if you’d like to see what that Robert Langdon is up to next…
  • if reading Dante’s Inferno in college still occasionally haunts your dreams…
  • and if your good dreams are of Italy, this book is for you.

Here’s my Rankings:

  • 2.5/5 for characters
  • 3.5/5 for plot
  • 3/5 overall


Against the backdrop of Florence, Italy– center of the Renaissance and birthplace of the most harrowing description of hell ever wrought, (Thanks, Dante) Robert Langdon wakes up in hospital with his memory wiped and a riddle to solve with implications for all of mankind.

Follow him from here to Venice to Constantinople as Dan Brown again instills the desperate desire to travel with fast-paced, plot-driven good fun for history and classic lit nerds who love to be reminded of what they read in their college days.
