Introduction

#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 sumptuously entertaining thriller.

  "Great discussion "by Smcrae (see profile) 12/19/14

This book brought forth great discussion at our mtg. Many felt that the "solution" was an interesting o e and may be worth it to "save" the whole from extinction.

 
  "Inferno"by TXCOLITCHICK (see profile) 10/16/14

Slow in many points, then very hectic. I love art history and learned a few things.

 
  "Inferno"by Lindamdyer (see profile) 10/16/14

Not a book club book, but would be an interesting read on vacation. The topic of overpopulation and plagues is interesting given our point in history. Would have preferred more symbolism and less "car... (read more)
