finished reading

This is the fourth in the Robert Langdon series. As with the other books, it takes place over 24 hours. Because the thrill of the chase is packed into such a short time span, it heightens the adventure. But the implausibility kicks in and kind of spoils the fun.

I don't know much about Dante's Inferno and now am curious to read it. Or a condensed version of it. And I want to go to Florence and Venice and Istanbul. What I really enjoyed is that I didn't know who to believe, who to trust, through the whole book. Because Langdon suffers amnesia (which is not a spoiler), it sets up the action for the rest of the book.

I'm excited for my book group to discuss this book. I'm sure there will be a few readers who do not like it and I can anticipate their reasons. Overall, I thought it was a fun thriller.
