Brown's novel "Inferno."
Once we returned home from vacation, we ordered it and I (Rob) read it. Note: It's over 600 pages, but it's a fast read. It features Professor Robert Langdon from Brown's previous novels, so you know the character. It also takes you through places in Venice and Florence (and places we got to visit on our trip). It was a fast-paced book that will keep you guessing. I Recommend it!
DO YOU KNOW DANTE'S INFERNO POEM? - Of course, it references Dante Aligieri's famous poem "The Inferno" - which is about Dante's journey through Hell. In the poem, Hell is depicted as nine circles of suffering located within the Earth.
THE VILLAIN - A villain with "good intentions" happened to use the "beaked or plague doctor" mask that we talked about in an earlier blog - so it was interesting to be able to picture it while reading.
This is another good book by Dan Brown, and I can see why everyone recommended it. Give it a read.
