Inferno: Edge of your seat story that will give you chills long after you finish

Updated on November 4, 2013

An adventure that never stops

One of the greatest parts of reading a fictional story is its ability to transport the reader to a fantasy land or time when anything is possible. A place where the author can show a world that if ever happened in reality would be a true nightmare. Dan Brown√Ęs latest novel does just that. A story set in modern times, focusing on real modern problems that we are facing right now including over population and the potential for worldwide epidemics while following a brilliant Harvard professor as he seeks to stop one of the greatest crimes against humanity in history. To say anything more would be to spoil some of this amazing story.

Have you ever thought about the endless growing population?

Overall Review

Dan Brown has perfected the recipe for combining historical places and stories with a complex web of intrigue, all the while writing a story that demands readers compulsively turning the pages to reach the climatic finish. Inferno is no exception to his line of novels.

This story however adds an additional layer that other Brown novels miss, and that is a higher moral question. He forces the reader to ponder the question of the 'appropriate size' of the human population on this planet before we consume too much resources and generate too much waste ultimately leading to the demise of our species. Think of rabbits on a small island. They will procreate as fast as possible even though the island has finite food and water. At some point they will consume too many resources and ultimately kill off the entire population. He poses the question if this is any different on a macro-scale of the human population on Earth.

While following along on an amazing world wind journey of spies, shadowy agencies, and one genius college professor; the reader is placed into a seat forcing them to examine their own moral grounding. What decisions would you make if in the same situation. The final closing thought that haunts the reader: "There is no greater sin than inaction."

Beyond the moral questions asked in this novel, this Dan Brown novel is sure to entertain any reader for as long as it take to fly through the pages. Strongly recommend.
