Inferno by Dan Brown

Inferno - Dan Brown

What to say?

It took me a while to really get into the book. It started a little too slow for comfort, pace-wise something along the lines of the previous book in the series and lightyears away from the first two installations, Angels&Demons and The Da Vinci Code.

Then, somewhere in the middle, it finally picked up pace, serving a few surprises along the way, a few major twists (I sure didn't see those coming)...Yet, the ending, though not really a happy one, didn't fulfill on the promise the story kept making. I hoped for a bang, since the ending was such, or a different ending altogether.

Well, we certainly cannot have everything we want or hope for, so I guess I'll have to make do with what I've been offered. Which isn't bad, certainly better than its predecessor, but still, I keep hooping Mr. Brown will deliver a book that's a worthy heir to the first two Langdon books.

Not bad, but not great either.
