A Plan9Crunch mini-book review -- Dan Brown's 'Inferno'

By Doug Gibson

I finished Dan Brown's "Inferno," which I read at a slower pace than is likely best for the novel. It's an above-average B-grade novel, very fast-paced at the start and then, surprisingly for Brown, slows in pace. At times the novel seems to read like a travel guide of Italy ... About three-quarters through there's a well-executed twist that restores intensity to the tale. The ending is a bit odd, though, more advocacy than entertainment. ... However, the novel did spur me to put Dante's "The Divine Comedy" on my Kindle. (If interested in "Inferno," buy it here.
