Inferno

It was a little surprising to me to find out that (probably) the only author whose work I've all read is Dan Brown. I don't find them that good, yes they're good in terms of being a page turner, but there's no deeper layer to it.

But nonetheless I stayed up late into the night finishing Inferno, the synopsis is the as below via goodreads:
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 this one the best simply because it's set in Italy is based off of the Divine Comedy, which I attempted to read back in highschool but only got as far as canto 10? If there's a free online course on the book I would totally take it. 

Also made me realize that there's so many places I didn't go in Florence & Venice! Ughh biggest regret is not going to Doge's Palace but instead spending too much time shopping on Rialto Bridge. This is why trips are not good with a big group of people.

There's this one shop that sells leather journals and glass pens. We spent like 1.5hours in there just picking pens "orz
