If you have been satisfied with Dan Brown's previous books, I have little doubt that you would consider "Inferno" worth reading...Personally, I'm so used to non-fiction that I blow through these novels quickly and they seem like a vacation. It is interesting the way Brown and the characters use Dante as prophecy to create the drama. I can see this being an interesting movie...

Cool thanks! My wife bought the book and I just wanted to be sure not to waste time reading any forgettable book. I'll look forward to get started.

I arrived at page 162 right now and I don't really like this book, kind of boring, although I do have a long time interest in the works of mr. Nietzsche..

 

Maybe it is because this is the third book in a row I'm reading from Yalom, so I don't rule out the possibility I've been exposed to a Freudian overload..:blink:

 

 

I'll give this book one more go in a few month..

 

 

 

In my opinion 'The Schopenhauer Cure' and 'The Spinoza Problem' are considerably better, but maybe because I prefer Schopenhauer and Spinoza in general above Nietzsche, so it's very personal..

 

Cheers ..

thanks for the update, maybe you should try schopenhauer's telescope as well it was written by an Irish guy, I really liked it. Actually it was an amazing read.

Ring the bells that still can ring,
Forget your perfect offering.
There's a crack in everything,
That's how the light gets in.

 

 Leonard Cohen

 

IMO, top 5 fiction series for mysteries ever. Start with the first. My only regret in reading this book is, it may be the last.   Hooray!
