This is unique, I don't typically do book reviews, but this book is mind boggling. First of all, it is by the author of the Davinci Code and the movie stars Tom Hanks. Well Tom Hanks makes for a great movie... Inferno is well written, takes place mostly in Italy and Dante (wrote the Inferno) has a lot of really fun information about Italy, and it is very much the same adventurous fun as the other books by this author.
But, Brown delves into a topic that is current and serious, that of the future exponential growth in population and our limited resources to handle this growth. He paints a scary picture and I have to admit that I was scared.
If you read the book as a fun entertaining sequel to the Davinci Code, then you won't be disappointed. But be aware before you pick it up, it might just scare you.
love always, k
