Amazon Exclusive: Inside Inferno

Explore the sights of Inferno alongside Robert Langdon in this exclusive first look at Dan Brown's latest thriller.
1

As Langdon continued on toward the elbow of the square, he could
see, directly ahead in the distance, the shimmering blue glass dial of the
St. Mark’s Clock Tower—the same astronomical clock through which
James Bond had thrown a villain in the film Moonraker.

2

The Tetrarchs statue was well known for its missing foot, broken
off while it was being plundered from Constantinople in the thirteenth
century. Miraculously, in the 1960s, the foot was unearthed in Istanbul.
Venice petitioned for the missing piece of statue, but the Turkish authorities
replied with a simple message: You stole the statue—we’re keeping our
foot
.

 
3

Amid a contour of spires and domes, a single illuminated facade dominated
Langdon’s field of view. The building was an imposing stone fortress
with a notched parapet and a three-hundred-foot tower that swelled
near the top, bulging outward into a massive machicolated battlement.

4

Langdon found himself standing before a familiar face—that of Dante Alighieri.
Depicted in the legendary fresco by Michelino, the great poet stood before
Mount Purgatory and held forth in his hands, as if in humble offering,
his masterpiece The Divine Comedy.

Q&A with Dan Brown

Dan Brown

Q. Inferno refers to Dante Alighieri´s The Divine Comedy. What is Dante’s significance? What features of his work or life inspired you?

A. The Divine Comedy—like The Mona Lisa—is one of those rare artistic achievements that transcends its moment in history and becomes an enduring cultural touchstone. Like Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, The Divine Comedy speaks to us centuries after its creation and is considered an example of one of the finest works ever produced in its artistic field. For me, the most captivating quality of Dante Alighieri is his staggering influence on culture, religion, history, and the arts. In addition to codifying the early Christian vision of Hell, Dante’s work has inspired some of history’s greatest luminaries—Longfellow, Chaucer, Borges, Tchaikovsky, Liszt, Monteverdi, Michelangelo, Blake, Dalí—and even a few modern video game designers. Despite Dante’s enduring influence on the arts, however, most of us today have only a vague notion of what his work actually says—both literally and symbolically (which, of course, is of great interest to Robert Langdon). A few years ago, I became very excited about the prospect of writing a contemporary thriller that incorporated the philosophy, history, and text of Dante’s timeless descent into The Inferno.

Q. Where did do your research for Inferno? How long did you spend on it?

A. Researching Inferno began with six months of reading, including several translations of The Divine Comedy, various annotations by Dante scholars, historical texts about Dante’s life and philosophies, as well as a lot of background reading on Florence itself. At the same time, I was poring over all the new scientific information that I could find on a cutting edge technology that I had decided to incorporate into the novel. Once I had enough understanding of these topics to proceed, I traveled to Florence and Venice, where I was fortunate to meet with some wonderful art historians, librarians, and other scholars who helped me enormously.

Once this initial phase of research was complete, I began outlining and writing the novel. As is always the case, when a book begins to take shape, I am drawn in unexpected directions that require additional research. This was also the case with Inferno, which took about 3 years from conception to publication.

With respect to the process, the success of these novels has been a bit of a Catch-22. On one hand, I now have wonderful access to specialists, authorities, and even secret archives from which to draw information and inspiration. On the other hand, because there is increased speculation about my works in progress, I need to be increasingly discreet about the places I go and the specialists with whom I speak. Even so, there is one aspect of my research that will never change—making personal visits to the locations about which I’m writing. When it comes to capturing the feel of a novel’s setting, I find there is no substitute for being there in the flesh...even if sometimes I need to do it incognito.

Q. What kind of adventure will Robert Langdon face this time? Can you give us any sneak peak at the new novel?

A. Inferno is very much a Robert Langdon thriller. It’s filled with codes, symbols, art, and the exotic locations that my readers love to explore. In this novel, Dante Alighieri’s ancient literary masterpiece—The Divine Comedy—becomes a catalyst that inspires a macabre genius to unleash a scientific creation of enormous destructive potential. Robert Langdon must battle this dark adversary by deciphering a Dante-related riddle, which leads him to Florence, where he finds himself in a desperate race through a landscape of classical art, secret passageways, and futuristic technology.

Q. What made Florence the ideal location for Inferno?

A. No city on earth is more closely tied to Dante Alighieri. Dante grew up in Florence, fell in love in Florence, and began writing in Florence. Later in life, when he was exiled for political reasons, the longing he felt for his beloved Florence became a catalyst for The Divine Comedy. Through his enduring poem, Dante enjoyed the “last word” over his political enemies, banishing them to various rings of Inferno where they suffered terrible tortures.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Mr Brown, please, do something! 22 mai 2013
Format:Format Kindle|Achat authentifié par Amazon
I discovered Down Brown via the Da Vinci Code and I also read great books from him (Digital Fortress, Deception point among others). I was a bit disappointed with Angels & Demons having a feeling of copy/paste of Da Vinci (may be because I started with that one). When I saw Inferno I hesitated but still, at the end I gave it a chance. Damn! Wrong choice. I must admit I could not go further than about half the book simply because, I will summarize it easilly: Langdon is chased, he hides, find a last chance exit, gives a lesson in history. Langdon is chased, he hides, find a last chance exit, gives a lesson in history. Langdon........ etc etc etc. This book does not finish from starting! Sorry but this is really too boring and I really do not care now what happens next. Please Mr Dan Brown, you're not worthy of such a book! For the next one be sure I'll wait long enough and will read critics a lot before spending money on a Langdon story. Too bad.

Were we expecting a book by Dan Brown with Dante and his Inferno as the central piece? Probably. But it finally came out and let us totally aghast.

Some simple reasons.

It is fast, multiple as for the point of view, very dynamic, sliced into so short chapters that have a high taste of TV series with some of them sliced up a second time like split hair that we are confronted to a scattered jigsaw puzzle. I don’t really like that kind of massive loaf of bread chopped up so thin we don’t have time to assess a situation before it is already gone, since there never – or nearly never – is a fully developed situation. Just tit bits you have to sort out and assemble the way you want if you are not particular about the story line, or the way you can or should if you want to keep up with some story line.

At the same time the story is multiple with many points of view and that gives a real dynamism to the tale that a more consistent or continuous story telling technique would not necessarily produce, would even very probably not produce. Especially when you know it all plays on the eyes that are used to see a character and speak about her or him, the eyes of another character, and not always the same. Some kind of inner voyeurism from one voyeur into another voyeur who pays the same homage to the first one: reciprocal and crisscrossing voyeur’s points of view. One of these voyeurs is struck by some important loss of memory and some other characters are just superficially identified by this or that momentary and transient voyeur, mostly Langdon who is under complete delusion due to his loss of memory, but several others too.

Then the story is complicated.

Format:Broché|Achat authentifié par Amazon
A fairly predictable and disappointing scenario pasted over a snobbish guide book of Florence, Venice and Istanbul. Remove the description of the historical buildings and almost nothing is left for you to read.

Dans la lignée des oeuvres de Dan Brown, on se fait un cour d'histoire et un cours d'histoire de l'art en même temps principalement en Italie.
Et il aborde un thématique importante. Je recommande

In my opinion Inferno does not live up to the standard set by the first two novels in the Robert Langdon series.
Midway through this infernally boring novel, Dan Brown finally pulls a fast one on the reader, and the story picks up, but by that time it is too little, too late.

Après avoir lu la majeure partie des oeuvres de Dan Brown, j'ai été très déçu par Inferno. L'intrigue est invraisemblable, compliqué, d'ailleurs j'ai eu l'impression par moment que l'auteur lui-même perdait le fil de son récit. Sans intérêt

Le livre se lit vite et ce n'est pas désagréable. J'ai utilisé le site inferno guide qui permet de visualiser les œuvres et les lieux du livre a chaque chapitre. J'ai trouve l'intrigue assez tirée par les cheveux mais le bouquin permet de faire un petit voyage a Venise Florence Istanbul.

I am mid-Inferno and I'm not sure I can be bothered to read to the end. It has introduced me to Ross King's "Brunelleschi's Dome" - maybe that will prove more interesting. Lire la suite

Although the book doesn't rival The da Vinci Code, we are still immersed in Langon's world made of history, suspense and murders. Cannot be missed!
