I'm giving this two stars for the 'enhanced' version, not the actual content of the story. I've lost count on how many times this book has had to be downloaded (I think it's somewhere between 30 or 40 by now and counting). The videos are all of seconds and offer nothing additional. Total waste of time and money. Just get the regular version and save yourself the frustration. I'm going to see if I can get my money back on this one. NOT WORTH IT!!

TIME FOR A HUMAN CULLING? I’m not a fan of amnesia by way of any book’s plot ploy. I thought it worked for Robert Ludlum in his Bourne series, but usually, in my opinion, it comes off contrived. Needless to say, Dan Brown’s INFERNO starts Chapter One with his recurring hero, Robert Langdon, suffering memory loss in a Florence, Italy, hospital bed. Literally, I sighed upon that revelation but plowed ahead if just because I’ve read Brown’s popular THE DA VINCI CODE, as well as his ANGELS AND DEVILS, and the author can usually be counted upon to provide a better read than many of the recent less-talented people who have begun writing similar genre mystery/adventure books that mingle fact with fiction. When I got over the annoyance of the amnesia, I did find this book’s plot as good as it is complicated, with subject matter definitely relevant in a world where overpopulation is already straining viable water, food, and natural resources. As in all the Robert Langdon as-hero novels, there’s a mystery to be solved in this one. If the arcane clues are deciphered by our hero with acumen that often leaves a reader awed. Any novice in symbolism, like I, needs suspend all disbelief that the protagonist is anything but exceedingly smart and clever … even if that same smart and clever protagonist can raise this reader’s eyebrow by somehow ignoring a key shout-out in Italian, as well as somehow forgetting that Istanbul’s Hagia Sophia has two narthex. As usual, Brown provides a definitive sense of place, leaving little doubt that he knows well the locales about which he writes, as well as knows his subject matter. It’s always a pleasure, when one has visited many of the exotic sites mentioned, like I have, to vicariously re-live those visits through Brown’s eye. Though I don’t judge this the best of Brown’s work, it’s certainly good enough to provide enjoyable hours of reading by firelight while avoiding the winter’s chill, or on a beach somewhere while wiling away one’s days in the sunshine.
