Waiting on Wednesday (8)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. So here's a thing I'm looking forward to: Inferno, by Dan Brown (from Doubleday, May 14, 2013)

 In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology, Robert Langdon, is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history's most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces . . . Dante's Inferno.

Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante's dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust . . . before the world is irrevocably altered.


Say what you will about Dan Brown, the man knows how to write an immensely entertaining potboiler. I quite enjoyed the other books in the Robert Langdon series, though it took me a long time to get around to reading the third one, and if nothing else, I'm looking forward to seeing him back in Italy for this one.
