Book Review | Inferno

I know. The last review I wrote was way back in April (also when I wrote my last post) but it's not that I forgot about this blog. I just haven't been able to find the time to just sit down peacefully and write. And speaking of writing, it's 22nd June and just 8 days from now, is the deadline when we, NaNo Winners can submit our NaNo Novels for printing. So I was focusing more on completing that, than blogging. I am hoping to write an update about it soon. :)

As far as reading books is concerned, I have been reading a lot; every minute I can spare. But the thing is, after I finished Dongri to Dubai, I picked up Stephen King's Dreamcatcher. It was the first of King's novels that I started reading and I was not prepared for it. The writing style and the genre is completely different from what I am used to reading. Moreover, the book is more than 800 pages long and it took me over three weeks to just get through half of it. What pissed me off was that in 400 pages, the word Dreamcatcher appeared twice which made me doubt the significance of the title and any link it may have to the actual story. So I put it on hold to read other books that were on my list. I read Amish Tripathi's 'The Immortals of Meluha' (review will be up once I finish reading the Trilogy) and Dan Brown's 'Inferno.'

But this is not a review of the Dreamcatcher; especially since I haven't even fully read it. So I will reserve my opinions on that. For now.

Let's me talk about what I am really here for. Dan Brown's latest thriller - Inferno
