Inferno….Just Misses The Mark

In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology, Robert Langdon, is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces…Dante’s Inferno.

Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante’s dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust…before the world is irrevocably altered.

 The text you just read above is the introduction to Dan Brown’s new novel Inferno.Robert Langdon features as the lead character in this fast paced and engrossing thriller, set In Italy. As one critic puts it, the beginning of the book is as close as Robert will get to a unbelievable start to his roller coaster adventure.
Although the characterization is secondary yet I did not find it to be harmful or boring for the overall plot and structure of the story, but still paper thin characters do make them less likable.
The best part about the story is that there are twists and turn at every turn, which captivate the attention of the reader and make the read even more engrossing, though the story lacks memorable dialogues or sentences yet overall the book is fine but not a great masterpiece. It’s seems more of a screen play for a movie rather than a book/novel.
For ages 16+.
