Inferno by Dan Brown Book Summary

#1 WORLDWIDE BESTSELLER

Harvard professor of symbology Robert Langdon awakens in an Italian hospital, disoriented and with no recollection of the past thirty-six hours, including the origin of the macabre object hidden in his belongings. With a relentless female assassin trailing them through Florence, he and his resourceful doctor, Sienna Brooks, are forced to flee. Embarking on a harrowing journey, they must unravel a series of codes, which are the work of a brilliant scientist whose obsession with the end of the world is matched only by his passion for one of the most influential masterpieces ever written, Dante Alighieri's The Inferno.
 
Dan Brown has raised the bar yet again, combining classical Italian art, history, and literature with cutting-edge science in this captivating thriller.

Inferno (Dan Brown) Book Reviews

InfernoFiction or reality? Great book and extremely unsettling at the same time as it deals with an ongoing problem that it is affecting the world as I type this short review but just remember that tonight is the beginning on forever........Score: 5/5

Great Read!I would highly recommend reading the book rather then see the movie. Because the movie doesn’t do the book any justice at all. I’m reading it right now and loving it..Score: 4/5

InfernoLarge disappointment.This is probably the first time I have ever said this, but the movie is probably better than the book. Don't waste your time and money, sit back in a dark theater with your date and enjoy the scenery and action..Score: 1/5

Epic bookNon stop suspense. I now have a genuine concern for the future of mankind..Score: 5/5

Worst of the seriesThis was more of a "Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego" adventure than a Dan Brown novel. The art was merely reference and the story lacked the traditional depth of his other books. Very little mystery to the entire book and the twist at the end was intriguing but did not make up for the thin plot of the rest of the book. I hope for better from Mr. Brown in the future..Score: 2/5

Another Adventure with Robert LangdonThis book is amazingly poignant for this moment in time. No one purposely released COVID 19, but the discussion of viruses, the WHO, even apathy is just so perfect right now.

Dan Brown Does It Again!Not a dull moment. As always, he opens our eyes to history and the reality of the modern world we live in all the while keeping the reader at the edge of ones seat in a ride that doesn't end till the very last page.

InfernoWanted to reread before the movie comes out. Still an excellent read with twists and turns. What I like best after reading the book is checking out some history where my interest and the story merge..Score: 5/5

Boring movie scriptWritten like he wanted it to be a movie already... as the DV-Code. Staccato scripts that keep endlessly on to bore. Full of "history" lessons one can research with an internet browser. Sienna's (medical doctor) sudden role of a type of expert on many of Landon's historic "discoveries" is unconvincing. The plot has its surprizes, but is still somewhat predictable..Score: 1/5

Great read!Excellent story, I love Dan Brown's research and application in all of his books. It is an absolutely thrilling page turner, highly recommended..Score: 5/5

Comes up short.I loved the other two dan brown books I've read; The Lost Symbol and Deception Point. They are all thrillers and this is no different. However, this book comes up short. While not as thrilling as previous Dan Brown, it is certainly a page turner. However, the bummer is in the conclusion - a solid epic dan brown reveal that, instead of leaving your head spinning like deception point, the lost symbol, or the da Vinci code, leaves you going, "alright, hmph" kind of like at the end of a horror movie when you respect the ending for its meaning yet really just don't like it.Score: 3/5

Waste of timeThe great part of "code" was the plausibility of the whole story. While the history in this book is interesting the story line is weak. I completely lost interest and only finished the book because I purchased it. I found myself mentally trying to push the slow plot along, like an elephant up a hill..Score: 1/5

How to read itIt's interesting to read other reviews proclaiming how horrible of a book inferno is. They claim it's a miss compared to other Dan Brown books. I can say I've read every Brown book and all books are written in the same manner. Every book has concise detail of the area of which the character is in. This literary technique is the opposite of books that attempt to just get to the point with as little detail as possible. Brown attempts to encapsulate you in the scene that these characters are in to give you vivid imagery so there's practically a movie running in your head if you're able to comprehend it. Inferno accomplishes this. You're placed in mysterious circumstances with numerous plot twists and your own theories being disproven all along the way. The only theory you can be sure of is that your idea of what's happening is wrong. While many may not enjoy the vivid imagery hoping for 24/7 action, it's refreshing to have nice detail to make you feel in the moment. It gives a sense of humanity in the text that you might be in a situation and think of something totally random. Dan Brown has created another great read that has a good mix of action, mystery, twists, and imagery that I've come to expect from his work. If you don't like slow parts describing something so you feel more engrossed in the text, Dan Brown is not your author. I'm sorry to say but the literary style of Brown is lost in most people because they only want fast action and fast reads with simple plots. On to the actual story line. You walk in perhaps feeling somewhat sympathetic to the antagonist. Certain concepts you just can't help but agree with even though you might know it's wrong. One thing is for sure, you walk away with better understanding of an impeccable epic, Dante's divine comedy. Now that doesn't mean you'll know what every part was about but it does give you insight into his work. The book also has an underlying tone that even in the world millions see every day, many details remain hidden or missed or even remain shrouded in mystery. Dan Brown accentuates these concepts subtly throughout the book. While Langdon finds all sorts of off hand facts that most don't know about the buildings that are mentioned contain many more secrets and buildings in the area contain even more. Langdon travels all over Europe, a place riddled with history long forgotten and some missed. It's this fact system we've all grown accustomed to in a Brown book that keeps readers reading out of intrigue. Overall the only crime this book commits is making Langdon seduce another pretty girl who we'll never hear about again. That is a reoccurring theme with Langdon books. I still believe my favorite book of Dan Brown's collection, is deception point. But inferno is certainly worth the read and perhaps re-read to capture more details. Happy reading!.Score: 5/5

Expected MoreDan Brown usually gives his fans what they’ve come to know and love. While Inferno follows the same basic format of the previous Langdon novels, I didn’t really feel it was his best.

A very mediocre attempt by Brown.Inferno, coming from one of my favourite author Dan Brown, horribly failed my expectations after his previous four Robert Langdon books. Based on Dante's poem, Inferno, the chase has a very rudimentary and mediocre baseline and Brown has stretched the story with Langdon running in the streets of Florence and Venice with almost not knowing why and very less iconography and symbolism. Sorry to say, but it was a very mediocre attempt by Brown to mesmerise his fans in his folklore of art, science, philosophy and architecture..Score: 2/5

Yes it is a page turner but feels a little like his earlier stuff Deception Point and not the richness that the other Langdon books carry.

I would have hoped for some forward motion in his writing but in stead it feels like a movie contract is being fulfilled..Score: 3/5
