Another Dan Brown‘s masterpiece!
A mixture of art, history and science, this book will take us roaming around the historical sites in Florence, Venice and Turkey. The big theme this time is Dante Alighieri and his legendary masterpiece, The Divine Comedy, particularly Inferno, combined with the Black Death tragedy and the problem of overpopulation.
As in another Brown’s book, the first chapter gave us death. And it’s rather unusual since the dead person is the main antagonist, which, you can guess, left an interlocking puzzle to be solved by the one and only Robert Langdon. The story is thrilling with surprising twists here and there and at some point make you questioning what is the truth and what is not.
The ending is calming though, left us somehow admiration and respect of the main antagonist and the sense that morality is, at the end, subjective.
