Book Review – ‘Inferno’ by Dan Brown


The latest Dan Brown thriller, with the dearest of the masses Robert Langdon, the Harvard symbologist, as the protagonist has touched the new summits of perfection in fiction-writing.

The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis.

The story revolves around a series of unfortunate events taking a grip over Robert Langdon, who wakes one day in an oblivious state of mind to discover that his life at stake. The novel is a tribute, for me, to Dante Alighieri, one of the pioneers in poetry, bewitched by whose magnum opus The Divine Comedy, the antagonist Bertrand Zobrist, portrayed as the avant garde of transhumanism, decides to take an evil turn for curbing the population explosion.

Nothing is more creative… nor destructive… than a brilliant mind with a purpose.

Like they say, ‘there’s a fine line between insanity and genius’; Zobrist imbibes in himself the Dante, who went in his masterpiece’s Inferno through hell for the purging of soul…for the good of all and above all!

Fast-paced, compelling and the one that will make you stick to it till you turn the last page and end with a sigh, the sigh that will replay the unprecedented journey you have through ancient Venice back to the times of Dante Alighieri himself. A 5-starrer. One hell of a journey to cherish 😉 In fact, I have started on The Divine Comedy as well, the epic 14000+ lines of poetry!!!
