My Thoughts Exactly...

Dan Brown does it again with another Robert Langdon action-mystery extravaganza. Taking on yet another pillar of literature (Dante's Inferno), art (Botticelli's Map of Hell) and tying it in to the beautiful, historical landscape of Italy, it's like you're running through the streets in a haze of puzzling tragedy.
