Internationally renowned and hunky Harvard professor of symbology Robert Langdon is once again at the center of an art-related plot, this time by a narcissistic virologist who has hidden his plan to destroy humanity in the seminal work of Dante. Oh, stop, you know you want to read this. Unfortunately, like most of Brown's other books, this is quite short on plot and heavy on running. One thing I noticed is Brown paces his books like really long TV shows: each chapter is a short scene which ends with a little cliff-hanger. Would only recommend this to people who *really* like Brown's books.

“Consider this. It took the earth’s population thousands of years — from the early dawn of man all the way to the early 1800s—to reach one billion people. Then, astoundingly, it took only about a hundred years to double the population to two billion in the 1920s. After that, it took a mere fifty years for the population to double again to four billion in the 1970s. As you can imagine, we’re well on track to reach eight billion very soon. Just today, the human race added another quarter-million people to planet Earth. A quarter million. And this happens every day—rain or shine. Currently, every year, we’re adding the equivalent of the entire country of Germany.”
“He once described himself as being trapped on a ship where the passengers double in number every hour, while he is desperately trying to build a lifeboat before the ship sinks under its own weight.” She paused. “He advocated throwing half the people overboard.”
