Reason Book was Chosen: I'd read the first two of Dan Brown's Robert Langdon series (Angels and Demons & The Da Vinci Code) back in 2005 and have two of the remaining three books sitting on my bookshelf for some time now. Whilst picking my reading list for this year I was inspired by Erik's idea to commit to reading a series of books and therefore I'm completing a few series' that I already own as part of my challenge this year. Dan Brown's Landon series being one of them, I've decided not to re-read the previous novels as they are still fresh in my mind.
My Thoughts

Another enjoyable Langdon story this time based around Dante’s Divine Comedy and a possible man made pandemic being released into the world (yes I’m read about another pandemic whilst being in a pandemic!) to solve the problem of human population growth. I enjoyed this a lot, for a few reasons, it reminded me to make sure I add Dante’s Divine Comedy to a future reading list, the imagery of the renaissance artists from Italy which I’m desperate to go and see (re-visit in some cases) and the fact it tackles the problem of overpopulation which I’ve battled with myself over the years and which I’ve had many conversations about – obviously I would never go to the extreme’s that this novel described but it’s always been a concern of mine. All in all an intense thriller, Landon as always is his typical self and I enjoyed the characters Brown introduced in this novel.
