I reviewed Dan Brown’s latest, Inferno, over at the National Post. Given the embargoes and secrecy and rules surrounding the release of the book, I ended up with about 24 hours to read and write about it, so the whole thing’s a bit of a blur. Then again, I think Dan Brown books are meant to be blurs. Puzzle-packed and jetting around and not knowing quite what the hell is going on but that’s okay, you don’t really have to.
You’ve got to hand it to him, though: he’s found his thing, and nobody does it like he does. And as they say of a certain beer here in Canada – the one I drink, as a matter of fact: “Those who like it, like it a lot.”
