“Inferno” – Dan Brown

Daily Prompt: Bookworm

June 16, 2013

Tell us about the last book you read (Why did you choose it? Would you recommend it?). To go further, write a post based on its subject matter.

The last book I read was Inferno, by Dan Brown. Apart from having exhilarating plotlines that hook you in every time, Dan Brown ensures that we take home a lesson of some sort every time, either a history lesson or some moral food-for-thought. So much for why I chose it. As for recommending it, I would always recommend a Dan Brown book, and this one is no different.

Inferno focuses on the dire threat of population. It points out, correctly, that all our other sustainability problems (less food, less water, less land to grow food, less land for housing, disease, global warming, etc.) are NOT problems, but symptoms of something else entirely – the much-too-huge population of human beings, currently on a frighteningly rapid rise.

  • Mystery/Adventure lovers: you will love this.
  • Dan Brown lovers: you will love this.
  • Thinkers/Philosophers: you will especially love debating the subject matter and the new points of view he puts forth.

So basically, if you have just the fifteen minutes required to get yourself to the bookstore, I highly suggest you do it – you’ll have loads of fun and enrich your understanding as well.

  2. I have read most of his books and I finished Inferno a couple of weeks ago. I also love the revisits for me to Florence and Venice and now Istanbul is on my list. The plot was quite good, Attention: SPOILER – I just did not like so much the way everything was neatly solved and tied up in pink ribbons at the end. So many suspects, but only one or two crooks, everyone else seemed to be a big misunderstanding – Mr. Brown you can do better.

    • i absolutely agree with you about the ending – that’s exactly what i though! it seemed much too perfectly resolved to be real. still, the best thing that came out of is the solution to the problem he portrayed at the end. No matter how contrived it appears, it bears thinking about, don’t you think?
