Dan Brown's new novel, Inferno, features renowned Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon and is set in the heart of Europe, where Langdon is drawn into a harrowing world centred around one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces.

As Dan Brown comments: "Although I studied Dante's Inferno as a student, it wasn't until recently, while researching in Florence, that I came to appreciate the enduring influence of Dante's work on the modern world. With this new novel, I am excited to take readers on a journey deep into this mysterious realm…a landscape of codes, symbols, and more than a few secret passageways."

About the Author

Dan Brown is the bestselling author of Digital Fortress, Deception Point, Angels and Demons, The Da Vinci Code and The Lost Symbol. He is a graduate of Amherst College and Phillips Exeter Academy, where he has taught English and Creative Writing. He lives in New England.

Dan Brown Does It Again With 'Inferno'

If your into the Dan Brown style of conspiracy novels you will not be disappointed. Once again the much loved character of Symbolist Robert Langdon finds himself thrust into a race against the odds and time. Langdon must outwit a deceased genius who was obsessed with Dante's Inferno before time runs out and prevent a devastating plague being unleashed upon the world. The question for Langdon is who can he trust and why are people attempting to shoot him. Suspense builds well and the motivations behind the characters actions are deliberately deceptive for the reader. Enjoy! I did.

Love Dan Brown, and have read most of his books. I don't know what exactly it was but I just couldn't get into it. Yes it is a slow start and I did get sick of him running around the city again...it just seemed like other books his written.

I did however love reading about Dante Inferno, and the history in this story...that was quite interesting.

    Comments about Inferno:

    A chilling and daunting real life look into human society and its issues with surprising twists that will leave you wanting for more hours in the day so that you can continue to read and read and read. The last 40-odd pages just flew by, breathlessly racing towards the involving, terrifying, yet somewhat satisfying ending. This Langdon story is better than 'The Lost Symbol' in my opinion and another great addition to the Langdon series.

      I bought a copy for me and a copy for my 15 year old grandson who now has the full series. My eldest son has taken it to read, so the Dan Brown addiction now runs in the family.

                        It is rare for me to not finish a book, alas Dan Brown's Inferno bored me, I struggled on until about half way , maybe a little less and it just didn't grab me. sorry Dan I read ALL of your books, but this one failed to interest me

                        Dan Brown

                        Dan Brown is the author of numerous bestselling novels, including the worldwide number one, The Da Vinci Code – one of the best selling novels of all time. His four novels were in the Sunday Times bestsellers list for a whole year and were the top four bestselling novels of 2005. They have been translated and published in more than 40 languages around the world.

                        Dan is a graduate of Amherst College and Phillips Exeter Academy, where he spent time as an English teacher before turning his efforts fully to writing. In 1996, his interest in code-breaking and covert government agencies led him to write his first novel, Digital Fortress, which quickly became a number one bestselling eBook. Set within the clandestine National Security Agency, the novel explores the fine line between civilian privacy and national security. Dan Brown’s follow-up techno-thriller, Deception Point, centred on similar issues of morality in politics, national security, and classified technology.

                        The son of a Presidential Award winning math professor and of a professional sacred musician, Dan grew up surrounded by the paradoxical philosophies of science and religion. These complementary perspectives served as inspiration for his acclaimed novel Angels & Demons – a science vs. religion thriller set within a Swiss physics lab and Vatican City.

                        Dan Brown’s wife Blythe – an art historian and painter – collaborates on his research and accompanies him on his frequent research trips, including to Paris, where they spent time in the Louvre for his thriller, The Da Vinci Code.

                        The Da Vinci Code has sold some 70 million copies worldwide. Both The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons have been adapted for film by Columbia Pictures.

                        His fifth novel, The Lost Symbol, featuring Robert Langdon, was released in September 2009.
