Wow! Those pictures are incredible. Honestly, the book did not do any of those locations justice.

That's awesome. That's why I liked the illustrated editions of Da Vinci and Angels and Demons, to see all the sights.

Thanks everyone, I really enjoyed being in Florence. It was my third time, and I hope to go back many more times. It's my absolute favorite city in Europe. Here's a few more from events from the book.

Palazzo Vecchio and Bargello, where the story began



Ponte Vecchio and the Vasari Corridor



Il Duomo





The Bapistry looking up inside

Great pictures.

As for the book, it was disappointing but it did get better towards the end

Spoiler:
So tired of these books with twist endings. The bad guys are good! The good guys are bad! Everything you thought is wrong!

Dan Brown's 'Inferno' is Amazon.com's top seller for 2013

NEW YORK — A year after "Fifty Shades of Grey" overwhelmed best-seller lists, book buyers were seeking different kinds of thrills.

Dan Brown 's latest Robert Langdon caper, "Inferno," was Amazon.com's No. 1 seller for 2013, the online retailer announced Monday. Khaled Hosseini was second with "And the Mountains Echoed." The best-sellers for kids and teens were Veronica Roth's "Allegiant" and Rick Riordan's "The Houses of Hades."

Other major hits on Amazon.com were "The Cuckoo's Calling," a crime story J.K. Rowling wrote under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith, and John Grisham's "Sycamore Row." Sylvia Day's "Entwined With You" was one of the few works of erotic fiction to place high on Amazon's list. Nonfiction favorites included Sheryl Sandberg's "Lean In" and "Things That Matter," an anthology of essays by conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer.

I'm about half way through INFERNO now...just got around to reading it. It's MUCH better than THE LOST SYMBOL - I'd actually like to see a movie version of this story.

Doing some late night channel flipping, I came across this movie. I found the name - and description - somewhat interesting.
