After over a year and a half of being absent from this blog, I have decided to return to the site of my former musings, in an attempt to restore it to at least a fraction of its former glory. Think of it kind of like Emperor Justinian attempting to restore the Byzantine Empire to the former heights of the Roman Empire. And perhaps it’s not such a great idea to restart a blog when one is extremely sleepy, but, come to think of it, it is only fitting! What better way to start rambling again, than to go on a sleepy rant about nothing in particular?
Actually, I did want to impress upon you that, if you’re looking for a gripping, page-turner of a book to read on your summer vacation, you could do a lot worse than picking up Dan Brown’s new novel “Inferno”. It features Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon in yet another history, art, and symbology-riddled breakneck chase – the setting is again Italy, with the majority of the book being set in my second-favourite city in the world – Florence. The main code that Langdon is trying to break this time around is (you’ve guessed it!) based on Dante Aligheri’s “Divine Comedy”, more specifically the part that bears the same title as Brown’s book. Will Langdon save the day again? I will just say that the novel doesn’t turn out as predictable as you’d think, so give it a chance!
Until my next post, here’s lookin’ at you, kids! 😉
