Harvard professor of symbology Robert Langdon awakens in a hospital in the middle of the night. Disoriented and suffering from a head wound, he recalls nothing of the last thirty-six hours, including how he got there…. or the origin of the macabre object that his doctors discover hidden in his belongings.
Landon’s world soon erupts into chaos, and he finds himself on the run in Florence with a stoic young women, Sienna Brooks, whose clever maneuvering saves his life. Langdon quickly realizes that he is in the possession of a series of disturbing codes created by a brilliant scientist – a genius whose obsession with the end of the world is matched only by his passion for one of the most influential masterpieces ever wrtitten – Dante Alighieri’s dark epic poem The Inferno.
Racing through such timeless locations as the Palazzo Vecchio, the Boboli Gardens, and the Duomo, Langdon and Brooks discover a network of hidden passageways and andcient secrets, as well as a terrifying new scientific paradigm that will be used either to vastly improve the quality of life on earth… or to devastate it.
The movie is on cinemas!!! I am so excited to watch it though a little bit scared that the movie might not meet my expectations.
Like his other novels, this is sooooo thrilling!!! I love all of Dan Brown’s novels and how these books create a buzz for awhile… (if you know what I mean 😉 )
The story starts with Robert Langdon in a hospital room where he can’t remember anything. Then suddenly people die right before his eyes and his life is in danger. Someone wants to kill him! — and the reason, unknown. Enter Sienna Brooks who basically saved his life from the people who were after him. (Why on earth should it always be a woman?? In Dan Brown’s other novels, Robert Langdon’s companions in his journey are also women!)
Both of them worked together in search for answers. But of course, this time it would not be easier because Robert Langdon can’t remember anything. The last thing he remembered was teaching in Harvard — he doesn’t even know that he is in Italy!
Well, what are they searching for?? — find out. All I can tell you is that this famous scientist – Bertrand Zobrist created something that Robert and Sienna believes to be something that will destroy human population.
The story ended in Istanbul where they were able to……… read it! 😉
The idea of this novel is scary and will make you think. The use of Dante’s epic poem Inferno as a source of their answers was magnificent.
If you love art, history, literature, science, suspense… this book is definitely for you! Dan Brown is one of my favorite writers, he is brilliant in putting pieces of the puzzle together.
