      Books written by Dan Brown were never a paragon for ideal writing.

And when it features one of my favourite fictional protagonists, Robert Langdon, the renowned art professor from Harvard to unlock mysteries on the run tailing clues after clues aided by his eidetic memory it's totally irresistible.

      After 'The Lost Symbol', which was mostly a yawn that literally put me to sleep, Brown returns to form with 'Inferno', even though at times it feels like a glorified tour guide that's straight out of a Wikipedia page. Although it lacks the finesse of 'Da Vinci Code' and 'Angels & Demons', it's an engrossing page-turner nonetheless with some suspension of disbelief about the existence of all the state-of-the-art stuff in it that often sounds like pure science fiction (which Brown claims to be real).

      In 'Inferno', Brown was somewhat successful at subverting some of his trademark formulas like the prospect of making Langdon solving something he had already cracked post a temporary amnesia and he still does have some tricks up his sleeve to leave us on the edge of the seat, even when the narrative was slightly bilging and becomes a tad predictable. Insights on the impending tragedy of overpopulation were interesting, though he could've stressed on this matter a lot more, I felt.

      'Inferno' might not be among the best works of Brown, but this scavenger hunt is definitely a significant improvement over 'The Lost Symbol' and packs a punch, despite all the been-there-done-that vibe it gives and its typical race-against-time sensibilities. In short, a wildly entertaining guilty-pleasure addition to the Langdon series.

      To be honest, this should work big time as a movie, much more than those mediocre adaptations of 'Da Vinci Code' and 'Angels & Demons' which lost a hell lot in translation.

      Ajaya:The Rise of Kali vayichu theernu. Terrific characterisation and adrenaline pumping war sequences. Must read

      Currently reading The Phantom by Jo Nesbo. A noirish dark thriller starring a terrific character called Harry Hole. This one chronicles the title characters journey into the bleak cold underworld of Oslo

      Cool

      The Kite Runner ee idakk vayichirunnu. I don't get the hype for this book. A cowardly unlikeable protagonist whose primary emotion is weeping is the bane of this book. And the ending is too cinematic to make an impression. The language is simple though the initial episodes in Afghanistan have a kind of sensual beauty to them. But ultimately a horrible letdown

      disagree completely.
      There are some things you can't share without ending up liking each other, and knocking out a twelve-foot mountain troll is one of them.

      Also 1000 splendid suns, is more intense, more realistic( I agree with you on tha cinematic climax of kite runner) and it brings you deeper into the afghan situation. especially a women point of view. Still I like kite runner because of its simple story, pleasent ending and as a story about children.
