Inferno is my third book of the may reading challenge; A book that’s been on your to-read list for a long time. This book has been a long time on my to-read list, because I already read Angels and demons, a the Da Vinci code, but i didn’t know if this book was as good as the other best-sellers from Dan Brown. So this challenge was a good opportunity for me to read Inferno.
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.
Mystery, old cities, and a beautiful women, these are the standards of dan Brown’s books. But again, Dan Brown has made a complete new story of history and tension. In Brown’s book, Inferno, you get to know Italy and Istanbul in Dante’s time.
From the first page ’till the last page, Inferno is characterized of mystery and tension.
Again, Dan Brown manages to interfere the past and present together. The book is full of tension and has a surprising turn. I found it very impressive to be to follow the story with tension and thereby treated with Dante, Venice, Florence and Istanbul. All interfering the past and present together. How the story is put together, surprises me every time. It has so many characters, and so much to tell, that the storyline is (almost) impossible to write, except for Dan Brown.
This book is going to be a movie! At the end of the year, you can see Tom Hank returning as Robert Langdon on the white screen. I hope the movie will be as good as the book!

The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater.”
