This 611-paged book written by the well-acclaimed
author of thriller fiction, Dan Brown, has brought Robert Langdon, the
protagonist of his series books into another dimension of conspiracy theories
using 14th century classics from Florence, Italy. Inferno by Dan
Brown is the fourth novel of the Robert Langdon series. The hero’s exploit to
hindering the plans of genetic-genius, Bertrand Zobrist, to terminate humanity
is packed into its 104 chapters.
Dan Brown’s Inferno opened with
a quotation by Dante Alighieri, “The darkest places in hell are reserved for
those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis.” The story
revolved to the peculiar adventures of Robert Langdon searching for the
unknown. He achieved to combine art history and symbols with a modern mystery that
only the hero can unwind. The story flows with the help of the relics left by poet
Dante Alighieri. Langdon deciphers codes that reveal the location of a hidden
plague that European billionaire Bertrand Zobrist designed to slaughter the
population of the world by leaving people sterile.
What makes me thirst more to the
novel is the erect of Zobrist’s idea that humanity is a disease that slowly
kills Earth, the idea of his that a plague that will cause humans to be unable
to reproduce is the only way to ease the aftermath of our world. In here, all the astounding plots started. It
also brings out the idea that there are tons of ways on how to save the planet
stocked in the smallest region of our minds.
This novel will surely satisfy
any listeners who want to feed their hunger in historical materials and to the
literatures that moved the world before. The story also makes the pleasure to wonder
through the ruins and walls in Italy intense. I highly recommend this book to
those with obsession of mystery and thrilling twists and to those that are not
because this novel will turn you into one.
