I don’t recommend wasting your time with this book. It reads like a travel guide to Florence and Venice, Italy, not like a novel. While I enjoyed Brown’s previous efforts, The Lost Symbol, and The DaVinci Code (especially the latter), this one is not in their league, although it features the same central character, Robert Langdon. One would hope Brown gets back to writing story and relegating the factual information about the places and artworks of his novels to a supporting role in the background. That’s really all that needs to be said about this disappointing book.
