I couldn't put this book down because every moment was exciting.
Inferno, follows the story of Robert Langdon after he wakes up in a Florentine hospital with no memories of the last two days. He is then thrown into a world of assassin followed chases and a threat of a worldwide plague that could be as catastrophic as the Black Plague. He has to use his knowledge of Dante's greatest work, The Divine Comedy to unravel the puzzle and try and save the world from sudden outbreak. Like I said, this book was fast pace and really easy to jump into.
Something was always happening and I just wanted to know what would happen next. In terms of overall plot, I just loved the characters Zobrist and Sienna Brooks being my favourites and the content the novel produced.

As he expertly navigated the labyrinthine corridors of Palazzo Vecchio in Florence, Eugenio Giani claimed he had no doubts about Dan Brown. Giani, a quintessentially elegant Florentine and the head of the city council, is eagerly awaiting this week's release of Inferno , Dan Brown's take on Florence and Dante Alighieri — the 13th-century local poet whose Divine Comedy helped define the Italian language as Chaucer did English.
Now Brown is set to do for Dante what he did for Leonardo da Vinci, when he turned the Italian polymath into a magnet for conspiracy theorists in , selling more than 80 million copies of The Da Vinci Code. Fans can expect Brown's protagonist, academic Robert Langdon, to find hidden, deadly meanings in Dante's description of his descent into hell in the Divine Comedy , while a preview chapter released before publication wastes no time sending a female assassin to try to kill Langdon in the shadow of Palazzo Vecchio, the crenellated centrepiece to the city which was once used by the Medicis and is now home to Florence's city council.
That optimism was echoed by Silvano Fei, who runs the city's Dante museum, which draws 60, visitors a year. Dante wrote his three-part masterpiece, in which he visits hell, purgatory and paradise, when he was exiled from Florence after finding himself on the wrong side in one of the city's complex factional fall-outs.
Inferno Ending: Why Dan Brown Was OK With The Movie's Big Change
He took with him the memory of mosaics located in the baptistry of the city's cathedral — still visible today — which depict a scary, horned Satan munching on souls in the underworld. It is visions such as these that show how Florence was made for Brown, said Giani, taking me on a tour around Palazzo Vecchio's complex network of passageways to prove his point. Pressing on the map of Armenia, a secret door swings open, revealing a passageway leading to a grille through which the enormous Room of the can be glimpsed.
In the hall, a huge 16th-century fresco by Giorgio Vasari is believed by researchers to conceal The Battle of Anghiari , a lost masterpiece by Da Vinci. But efforts last year to drill through to find it were halted after protests from academics. Beyond such mysteries, fans of Brown's Inferno heading for Florence to discover traces of Dante will be well catered for, since quotes from the Divine Comedy referring to streets that have not changed for years are placed on plaques around the city.
