My second Dan Brown, and already I found a template of his story. 

This book was intriguing, too intense for my mild self. But towards in the middle, I simply couldn’t stop reading. Twists here and there,
Spoilercouldn’t appreciate what they did for the movie, that Sienna was the bad guy after all, because in the book, what Sienna believed is more complicated.
I love that for a fact, this book features ambiguity in morality. What’s right and wrong, you could never say which one’s which. 

I might wait for a while before starting another Dan Brown. His books were well-crafted, but sometimes books of the same author with similar template put me off (eg. Murakami). But you could appreciate the intricacies of his story, like I was reading nonfiction in a fiction, if that makes sense. This book features the poet Dante and I learned so much of his life history.

Inferno was much better than The Lost Symbol, much closer to being on par with The Da Vinci Code in terms of how everything is pieced together. 

Robert Langdon wakes up in a hospital, with no memory of how he got there, or even knowing that he's in Florence, Italy, instead of Massachusetts. He's attacked by an assassin, and flees with a doctor. Like other Dan Brown novels, Langdon is fleeing various authorities while piecing together a mystery, one that starts with Renaissance painting and eludes heavily to Dante's Divine Comedy, as expected from the title. 

Note: There is a heavy theme of
Spoiler"world destroying plague"
running through the book, which could make it difficult to read.
