Dan Brown ¶ 1 READ & DOWNLOAD

READ & DOWNLOAD ↠ Inferno By Dan Brown Harvard professor of symbology Robert Langdon awakens in an Italian hospital disoriented and with no recollection of the past thirty six hours including the origin of the macabre object hidden in his belongings With a relentless female assassin trailing them. I guess this will fulfill my yearly uota for Mickey Mouse watch clad academics who solve ancient conspiracy filled puzzles Updated 531 Sometimes I feel like Dan Brown is my nemesis In interviews he comes off as a smart earnest guy if a bit of an academic dweeb who has an obsession for puzzles old art and conspiracy theories but also as a guy who has no idea how to laugh at himself He seems to take his own work very seriously and gets his feelings hurt by even the eensiest teeny baby criticism He writes the same four or five characters over and over in every book he s ever written He writes books that have sold millions of copies but he has no idea how to write a character that doesn t flounce around his stories like a puppet with his hand up its ass He seems to enjoy writing books that will make people tear their hair out in fits of aplopleptic rage Once I m pretty sure he compared himself to Shakespeare but I can t find the article right now so you ll just have to trust me I guess He completely disavows the notion that he writes with a formula The public image he s created for himself sometimes gives me a strong urge to chew up nearby scrap paper and then spit it at the back of his head And I ve never hocked a spitball in my life I say this as a former academic dweeb myself so don t go crying into your Cheerios Dan The Dan Brown Formula Something mysteriouscreepyviolentpotentially life changing happens setting into motion a chain of events that can only be stoppeduncovered for what they really are by our Protagonist an intelligent middle aged gentleman who happens to be an expert in his field but also in the specific areas necessary to saving the worlduncovering a mysterysolving puzzles laid out for some unknown reason by a shady Antagonist on him later Protagonist is always handsome extremely well educated and single He purposesly sets himself apart from the main populace observing the common culture and placing it historical context rather than participating Protagonist has one or two defining traits that will be mentioned over and over again in lieu of characterization Protagonist with the help of a beautiful usually young woman who finds him handsome and is generally impressed by him solves a series of mysteriespuzzles in order to accomplish a goal Protagonist is in constant danger from shady Antagonist who usually has issues of his own probably psychological usually also sexual and religious Antagonist always seeks to change the world in a negative way either by altering the world s perception of something it holds dear or by endangering lives Protagonist is nearly always fooled by the presence of a Traitor who hides in plain sight as a kind intelligent and resourceful person until it is time to do the betraying There are five million plot twists Protagonist saves the world with his brain never his brawn Protagonist and Girl ride off into sunset this part is metaphorical The End His books are similarly easy to riff on and Inferno is no exception Actually as the fourth Robert Langdon book it s the easiest because it s becoming increasingly obvious through repetition what his limited repertoire of tricks consists of Namely Repetitive plot repetitive characters the traitor the global organization the puzzle plot for no reason at all in this one seemingly etc etc See above formula But the Langdon books in particular have their own special vocabulary For Langdon himself you can t go two pages without one of the following being mentioned the Harris Tweed that he wears in apparent defiance of the establishment which scorns the apparel as nerdy his Mickey Mouse watch the fact that he is in exceptional shape for his age because he swims every morning his great head of hair something always noted by other characters not Langdon himself having characters applaud or notice how handsome Langdon is young chicks falling for him all the time and my personal favorite how the only thing he thinks about besides his scholarly pursuits is that one time as a child he got stuck in a well and apparently he never really left It s apparent to me that Dan Brown clearly works out his own fantasies desires and frustrations in the pages of his books Bottom line there s a lot to criticize in a Dan Brown book HOWEVER This is where this review will take a 180 and flip positions so if you re one of those people who are uncomfortable admitting that even the worst written book might have something worthwhile to offer THE PLEBES AND THE STUPIDS LIKE IT SO I MUST NEVER back out from this page slowly and go elsewhere on the interwebs Here is my point to counteract or maybe encompass is the better word the points above Even if the above points are true and I believe they are they do not affect my enjoyment of the book Look you don t read a Dan Brown novel for great writing You just don t You read a Dan Brown novel to be carried along on a plot going the same exact speed of one of those fancy foreign high speed trains You read a Dan Brown book to see historical facts and famous pieces of art placed in new context or maybe just to learn something You read it for the secrets and the conspiracies and the ridiculously high stakes the plot hinges on You read it for the red herrings and the betrayals If you re like me you also read it so that every time Dan Brown writes something with a Dan Brown flair you can shake your head or laugh loudly or use whatever sort of exclamations you prefer Oh Dan Brown you say mentally patting him on the head with simultaneous affection and frustration You read it to find out what crazy thing he s written about next and to find out just how many and what types of people he s going to piss off next You read it to be fucking entertained In that respect this book is pretty much a success Also for as much shit as people give Dan Brown I think he s good at uite a lot of things that get overlooked most of the time He s really good at research for one thing the wealth of historical detail he uncovers in his books is extremely thorough and I d be willing to bet the amounts of information he uncovers that he doesn t put in his books is rather large I also think it s notable that the historical and artistic bits he does include are nearly always very interesting For another thing in terms of the genre he s writing in the thriller his writing is top notch I ve read a lot of thrillers by other authors and in comparison Dan Brown is something of a wordsmith On a related note the purpose of the thriller is to thrill to create suspense So while one might consider his short chapters that 99% of the time end in cliffhangers as hacky you might also want to consider them effective They serve their purpose they get you to turn the page And finally and maybe most significantly Dan Brown has a definite talent for finding our cultural panic buttons and then pushing on them real hard The effect of this is that he works through in his novels issues that we face every day and he does so in a venue that can be sold candy coated to a consumer mass public that would otherwise barf up similar information in reflexive panic The last thing I want to say about Dan Brown and this book is the reason that I ended up giving it four stars instead of three That reason is ballsiness He tries to break up his formula in this one and in some ways he succeeds It was an interesting experiment in Inferno to have the plot start with Langdon unable to recall where he is or why he s in Italy with a gunshot wound to the head From there he has to piece together his recent past and solve a mystery he s already solved once before all over again This adds an extra layer of confusion to the plot that his previous three Langdon books were missing He also shakes up his infamous traitor plot a little but I won t say too much about that just in case you re going to read it for yourself But the most significant reason I say he has balls is the ending to this book view spoilerIn thrillers like this one the hero always saves the day The world is returned to its status uo maybe a little richer maybe a little cynical depending on whose book it is you re reading But he always succeeds in whatever madcap tomfoolery he s been participating in But in this one Uh he doesn t Langdon and his associates attempt to stop the mass dispersal of a virus that will sterilize 13 of the world s population for all time and they fail This means that any future Langdon book will take place in a world that has been irrevocably changed hide spoiler Troveranno il corpo kind intelligent and resourceful person until it is time to do the betraying There are five million plot twists Protagonist saves the world with his brain never his

Lasciate ogni speranza voi ch entrate Or something Statue of Dante by Enrico Pazzi Piazza Santa Croce FlorenceWhen I took this picture a couple of months ago I thought Dante s dour expression must be because he was pondering the horrors of hell Now I think it s because he was dwelling on the ignominy of having his masterpiece turned into this Dan Brown novelBy the fourth book in the series the formula has been well established Robert Langdon the intrepid Harvard professor and symbologist must race against the clock to decode a series of obscure clues left by a madman to save humanity from destruction The only thing surprising is that Langdon continues to be dumbfounded when he finds messages from shadowy cabals hidden in the pockets of his Harris Tweed You d think he d be used to it by now Unfortunately the book reads as part dressed up travelogue part Wikipedia entry On the plus side much of the discussion is about Florence one of my favorite cities Brown does name check some good places I d agree with him that No trip to the piazza della Signoria was complete without sipping an espresso at Caff sic Rivoire The problem is that these observations about Florentine tourist destinations are interspersed with scenes of our valiant heroes racing through the narrow streets fleeing heavily armed paramilitary operatives who want to kill them Langdon is never too distracted to pontificate about history and Renaissance art but it s probably likely that he would give the Frommer s a rest during this particular tourview spoiler hide spoiler The Boyfriend Next Door kill them Langdon is never too distracted to pontificate about history and Renaissance art but it s probably likely that he would give the Frommer s a rest during this particular tourview spoiler hide spoiler

    Inferno By Dan Brown E–pub/Kindle This is my first Dan Brown book and what can I sayit pretty much sucked I was kind of shocked Yes I had read a lot of disparaging comments about Brown’s writing but I pushed them aside figuring his books must be at least entertaining Otherwise why would he be so popular? And I rather like cheesy books This one had a condescending tone though that grated on my nerves and sapped all the fun right out of the story It was a tedious readFirst
