Harvard professor of symbology Robert Langdon wakes up in an Italian hospital, unable to remember how he got there and what happened in the past 24 hours. After an assassination attempt by a mysterious spiky-haired woman in the hospital, Robert flees with Dr. Sienna Brooks. From there, Robert and Sienna find themselves on a twisted quest through Florence to try and stop a madman determined to release a modern-day Black Plague. The madman has used "Inferno," from Dante Alighieri's epic poem, "The Divine Comedy," as his inspiration to create his havoc in Florence. Dan Brown intricately weaves together literature, art, history and modern day issues such as bioterrorism and overpopulation in this excellently written novel. Anyone who is a fan of Dante, enjoys historical fiction or mysteries will not be able to put this book down.
