SUMMARY

'Seek      and     ye      shall       find'
With these words echoing in his head, eminent Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon awakes in a hospital bed with no recollection of where he is or how he got there. Nor can he explain the origin of the macabre object that is found hidden in his belongings.

A threat to his life will propel him and a young doctor, Sienna Brooks, into a breakneck chase across the city of  Florence. Only Langdon's knowledge of the hidden passageways and ancient secrets that lie behind its historic facade can save them from the clutches of their unknown pursuers.

With only a few lines from Dante's dark and epic masterpiece, Inferno, to guide them, they must decipher a sequence of codes buried deep within some of the most celebrated artifacts of the Renaissance- sculptures, paintings, buildings - to find the answers to a puzzle which may, or may not, help them save the world from a terrifying threat....

MY VERDICT
                     "The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis."
Inferno is a thought-provoking novel. It had me perpetually on the edge of my chair, which is odd, because initially when I came across the book I thought I would hate it.
Before reading Inferno, I never  gave overpopulation much thought, but reading it made me fear for the future inhabitants of this earth. I loved how Dan Brown drew me into the story and made me feel I was on the run with Professor Langdon and Dr.Brooks.
Although all the references to Dante's inferno and the seven levels of hell made my skin crawl, I absolutely could not put the book down. 
Inferno took me from Florence to Venice to Istanbul and I loved every bit of it. I've learnt so much and I do not see why you should not get this book right now!
