My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Robert Langdon is back but the problem is that he can’t remember where he has been. When he wakes up in a hospital in Italy, the last thing he can remember is being in Massachusetts. So, why has he been shot and why are people still after him?
The answer seems to lie in a reproduction of a painting of Dante’s Inferno that he was carrying. To follow the clues will require knowledge of Dante and Italy.
I don’t know that I’ve ever rooted for a bad guy as much as I rooted for this one. I told the bad guy’s plan to several people at work and they all got dreamy-eyed and said that they supported it also. I loved, loved, loved the ending of the book. Like Da Vinci Code, this book falls into line with my personal ethics and values so I love it. I can see how others might find it disturbing. I don’t want to give too much away because part of the fun is discovering what is about to happen.
