Inferno Book Review

I had wanted to read this book ever since I had started reading Dan Brown’s work. And, when I saw it at a book fair at a cheap rate, I just bought it.

And, this book met all my expectations.

Firstly, because of this book, I got to know about the history of some amazing places in the world. And, it’s one of my favourite things about Dan Brown’s books. They are not just fun to read but they also let you know something in history. Like who built it, why it’s famous, about poets, sculptures, etc.

The cover of this book is also very apt and relatable to the book. And, the title is as well very simple, eye-catchy, and suitable. In fact, the title and the cover are the very the second thing that caught my attention. The first is that it is written by Dan Brown.😄

Now, about the start of the book. The start of the book is with a bang. And, I mean it. In the first chapter only there were gunshots and killings. It had my attention from the start.

The writing style of the author is also very awesome. He makes you feel like you are an important part of the book. Also, imagining the scenes happening in the book was very easy. He doesn’t give too many or too few details. It literally felt as if an HD movie was playing in my head.

The plot of the book is probably my favorite thing about this book. It is very engaging with the right amount of suspense and mystery. It had my attention till the end. Also, the book had lots of twists and turns; some expected and, some not.

The characters in this book are as well very interesting. The main character, Robert Langdon, is definitely on my top detective list. The side characters are beautiful too. And, all the characters were described beautifully. The number of characters introduced is just right. Not too many that you will forget the character and not too less that you will feel something is missing.

And now ending. The ending of the book is very very very unexpected. I didn’t see it coming at all. I liked the ending and how it surprised me. It is my second favorite part of the book.

Overall, for me, there was nothing to dislike in this book. Everything was just perfect.
