Fast paced and infinitely readable, Dan Brown knows how to treat his readers to a special time. The plot may not always be my favorite but I do love learning about all the art architecture, history, and buildings that Robert Langdon describes in vivid detail. I was also excited to see that the poet Dante Alighieri featured prominently in this book so the reader gets to know a lot about his life as the story progresses. I didn't love the end, and I didn't particularly love the plot (a plague) but I finished this book in no time flat (thank you tiny chapters!). I am interested to see the movie adaptation later this year. Overall, another good thriller from Dan Brown, a must read for his fans and those of art history.
