Midway upon the journey of our life, I found myself within a forest dark, for the straightforward pathway had been lost.

As a big fan of Dan Brown’s Robert Langdon series, I must say I’m very disappointed. It seemed to be more of a history lesson about Dante, and a guide that allows you to visualize the art of Florence, and the architecture of Turkey. It’s story is thin for the most part, and lacking the usual excitement that makes me want to know what is going to happen next. Normally when I read a Dan Brown book I find myself researching all of the little facts and conspiracies and what not, but I didn’t feel the need to do that because there weren’t really any. I don’t feel that the character of Langdon uses his qualifications much, although he does get to be more of an art historian than a symbolist.

I felt that Brown was quite repetitive and that the ending was rushed, and a bit of cop out.

I’m not saying I didn’t enjoy the book at all, I did. I just didn’t feel that it was up to scratch with his other novels.

The ending of the book does make me wonder if this will be the last one in Landon’s series. I don’t really see how they could continue it, and if it is I feel that he could have ended it better.

  1. I’ve been putting off reading this book since it was released. I am a huge fan of all the other Dan Brown books but I struggled to get into Inferno when I got it and I’ve been putting it off ever since.

    I’ll have to start it soon so I can see if it’s as bad as people have said.

    • You’ll have to let me know what you think of it.

      I personally think he just wanted to finish writing about Langdon and just did a rushed job which is unfortunate!
