Book: Inferno by Dan Brown

Yep, same old, same old by Dan Brown: Robert Langdon, accompanied by yet another young beautiful woman, running helter skelter in Italy solving cryptic puzzles along the way and pursued by many bad-assed people led by a chief villain with an earth-shattering evil intention.

One thing you can say about a Dan Brown’s, you do learn something new about Europe’s Renaissance heritage. This time it’s about Dante Alighieri (yep, the guy with the funny hat and the laurels who inspired the most graphic tortures and depredations in Hell) and his magnum opus, La Divina Comedia.

Here’s a nice free iPad app where you can read Divine Comedy and Sandro Botticelli’s painting, La Mappa dell’Inferno at one go.
