January Book Discussion: Inferno by Dan Brown

Did you love Angels and Demons and the Da Vinci Code? Join us for a fun pleasure read in January with Dan Brown's Inferno....

In his international blockbusters The Da Vinci Code, Angels & Demons, and The Lost Symbol, Dan Brown masterfully fused history, art, codes, and symbols. In this riveting new thriller, Brown returns to his element and has crafted his highest-stakes novel to date.

In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology, Robert Langdon, is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces . . . Dante’s Inferno.

Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante’s dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust . . . before the world is irrevocably altered.

    I found an interesting map of predicted population growth up to 2100: http://image.guardian.co.uk/sys...­. There was an image floating around the internet of a map with a circle around India, China, and Indonesia, with the caption "Half the world's population is inside this circle." That certainly won't be true by the end of the century.

    I looked on Wikipedia, and apparently the world population is only growing about half as fast now as it was in the 70's. If it kept growing at the percentage rate it is now, it would double in 60 years instead of the 30 or so that it would have taken if the population had kept growing at its peak in the 60's and 70's. They're counting on the rate to keep declining to make the above map true -- if it stays the same or speeds back up, it'll be a big underestimate.

    There's no way I'm going to get the book read by Sunday. I'd like to come to group anyway, because it's been awhile since I've seen you all.

    Absolutely love this book and for those who have not yet read it, I won't spoil the ending. But I was in the city where the book ended 3 months before I read it and felt I was Robert Langdon as the book raced to its conclusion. Enough said............
