Love him or hate him

Dan Brown's new book "Inferno" due on May 14th in Canada and the US, so we'll see it the next day in SA. This is a new Robert Langdon novel.

There's no available jacket as yet, but the following is from Dan Brown's website :

Inferno, featuring the return of renowned Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon, is set in Italy and centers on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces, Dante’s Inferno. The book will have a first printing of four million copies.

“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,” said Brown. “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.”

“Dan Brown is a masterful storyteller” said Mehta (Chairman and Editor in Chief of the Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group), “his ability to fuse codes with well-researched history has helped to make his novels some of the most popular works of all time. With Inferno, Dan has taken a literary classic and animated it in a way that only he can.”

Our breaths are bated.
