it was ok

It's what you expect of a Dan Brown book - an adventure with a professor in Europe that somehow manages to keep caught up in international intrigue. However I'm beginning to wonder about the professor's mental abilities since he seems to keep getting into tricky situations and isn't instantly paranoid on meeting anyone new. A word of warning to anyone that has studied Italian Renaissance art: you may find yourself at points saying "yes I know all about that, get on with the story". I'd imagine it'd be the same for anyone that's studied Dante or The Divine Comedy in any depth. It's another quick read with most chapters starting and ending on a climax so that you need to go on to the next chapter. There were points where I felt it needed more editing. This isn't a tome where you'd forget what was said/revealed a few chapters earlier, yet Brown felt it necessary to repeat information or reshow something to yet another character with us looking at it too-and what they're showing doesn't lead to a revelation of a clue. Another fun summer read.
