Anyone excited about this? I'm not in particular, but it might be a fun read.

Yes I am very tuned up to get my hands on Dan Browns new release.I always will judge a book by how much entertainment I get from reading it.Yup I am getting this book the day it comes out.

I just hope it's better than Lost Symbol. I liked all his other books :-) (well, sort of anyway)

Don't know what it is but I just love reading Dan Brown,I revel like a chelsire cat as I turn the pages,a combination of all the elements,long lost secret societys,underground passages,hidden meanings,partly historical,revelations uncovered and revealed.Inferno I believe becomes available on May 14th and I can't wait to get it.One thing pisses me off and that is the Ebook edition price $18.00 way to expensive for the E version in fact not much less than the Hardcover edition.

I'm currently reading Digital Fortress. I remembered I hadn't read that one yet. I really don't like it. It suddenly reminded me of how shallow his characters and plots are. In a way, all his books are the same. I'm not sure if I will finish it. I'm also listening to The Hunger Games on audiobook and I like that one much much better :)

Hi E-Hoog
Yes i recall reading Digital Fortress as well,it was so so,I agree but I still liked it.By the way E-hoog tomorrow Dan Browns "Infereno" is available for download ,get this E-Hoog the e version is $18.25 cents,damn pricey for an ebook,I know you agree with me on that,problem is I am really want to read it so we will see if I breakdown and buy it.I find popular authors when they publish a new book are pricey,I can relate to the price if it was a hardcover but feel ripped off when it is in e format.
The Hunger Games,I read all three in the series and liked them a lot,very very good,and a little up your alleyas far as your own personal taste of reading,a touch of fantasy built in to the storyline,saying that I loved The Hunger Games big time.
[b7] Wonder when we will see Jeffrey Whittams new book ? :lol:

I agree, that is way too much for an e-version. But I'm sure they can get it, so they'll milk it for a while. I will try to give Digital Fortress another shot. And yes, hopefully Jeffs new book will be out soon :).

I'm almost finished with the first book of the Hunger Games. Very exciting stuff and indeed right up my alley :)

Inferno: A Novel (Robert Langdon) - publication release was yesterday May 14th.Very interesting there are 43 reviews of this book on Amazon.com ( how can that be it came out yesterday - interesting ? ).The reviews are 3 and a half stars out of five,it seems some are very critical of Dan Brown and his offerings,I have not read the book but plan to very shortly,I love the intrigue of how Dan Brown weaves together,history,science,fantasy,lost secrets of the world,hidden passages,secret society's,etc etc.I read Dan Brown for the entertainment side of reading,not the intellectual side

Looks like Dan Brown does not take to critisism to well.Whatever the case Dan Brown,Queen Elizabeth and President Obama like you well enough - who cares what the critics say.

Got" Inferno "downloaded on my kindle,I have not read it as I am finishing a triology called The Zambezi Chronicles by Dwight Kopp.Anyway just wanted to say I got my hands on it and I am wanting to read it.What is really a cool thing is the ebooks that my wife downloads to her kindle,I have access to and vice versa,so both of us can read Inferno from our own ebooks,and share the purchase.
