  • "think this is a good teenage read"

    Overall

    i love the archaeological mystery genre which is why i chose this book. i enjoyed it and the narration was excellent but it was definitely for the "younger reader" or teenager. reminded me of anthony horowitz's alex rider series. totally inoffensive tho, so i gave it a high rating

    It is 1942. The theatres of war are North Africa and Italy. All eyes follow the front, but behind the scenes, a messier war continues. Cabaret singer by night, spy by day, Richard risks his life to help British servicemen escape occupied France and get back to England. Rose leads a group of dancers with mixed morals, high-kicking to entertain the troops as Hitler's bombers roar in the skies above. Then she is given orders to join the forces on the field, destination unknown.

    Dan Brown's new novel, Inferno, features renowned Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon and is set in the heart of Europe, where Langdon is drawn into a harrowing world centred around one of history's most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces. As Dan Brown comments: "Although I studied Dante's Inferno as a student, it wasn't until recently, while researching in Florence, that I came to appreciate the enduring influence of Dante's work on the modern world."

    When you're as big and rough as Jack Reacher - and you have a badly-set, freshly-busted nose patched with silver duct tape - it isn't easy to hitch a ride. But Reacher has some unfinished business in Virginia, so he doesn't quit. And at last, he's picked up by three strangers - two men and a woman. But within minutes it becomes clear they're all lying about everything - and then they run into a police roadblock on the highway. There has been an incident, and the cops are looking for the bad guys....

Thirty-six hours ago he slept with the woman of his dreams at the Savoy. An hour ago his train blew up.

    Welcome to James Keane - card sharp and ladies' man - and one of the finest soldiers of Wellington's army. Keane - hot-tempered, a maverick, never quite accepted by his fellow officers - is in trouble for killing his man in a duel: An activity forbidden by Wellington. To avoid court martial, he takes on an unwelcome assignment: to form an ill-assorted bunch of reprobates into an elite unit capable of operating behind the lines. A nineteenth-century Dirty Dozen.
