Caihl Joseph G. Acejo10- KamagongIntroduce the book.Inferno is a novel written by Dan Brown. It is his 4th book after Angels and Demons, Da Vinci Code, and The Lost Symbol. Inferno is the underworld as described in Dante Alighieri’s poem The Divine Comedy, which shows hell as a structured realm with its citizens known as shades or the bodiless souls. Dan Brown’s Inferno ranked top 1 in the New York Times best seller.Tell about the book, but don’t give away the ending! Robert Langdon, a Harvard Professor of Art History and Symbology, wakes up in a hospital without remembering anything about what happened to him the last few days. He last remembers walking on the grounds of Harvard but then he quickly realizes that he is now in Florence, Italy. His attending doctors, Dr. Sienna Brooks and Dr. Marconi reveal that he is suffering from amnesia. When Vayentha, a female contract killer, entered the hospital and killed Dr. Marconi, Dr. Brooks helped Langdon escape, and together, they go to Dr. Sienna’s apartment.Tell about your favorite part of the book or make a connection. My favorite part is when Robert Langdon and Sienna Brooks found out what’s inside the Cylinder Seal. Cylinder Seal is invented by the Sumerians and served as a forerunner to the intaglio form of printmaking. The most interesting for me is when Sienna read the text SALIGIA. I’m curious so I read the text furthermore. Then I found out that its meaning is Superbia, Avaritia, Luxuria, Invidia, Gula, Ira, and Acedia. And there’s something that made me search in the internet: The La Mappa dell’Inferno. I searched it in the internet to see is if the Map of Hell is true, and yes there’s a Map of Hell and it shows different levels of hell or the 9 Circles of Hell. Give a recommendation (eg., If you like…., you will love this book or I recommend this book to anyone who likes…..). I recommend this book to anyone who likes mystery/thriller genre because it’s a nice book. It has a good story line that will make you imagine the real situation of Robert and Sienna. From Provost’s minions chasing Robert and Sienna that made them go to different places around Florence, until the end, it’s worth reading. So I recommend this book to everyone.
