First Chapter ~ First Paragraph Tuesday Intros - Inferno; Dan Brown

Every Tuesday I host First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, where I share the first paragraph or (a few) of a book I am reading or thinking about reading soon. Care to join us?

This week I'm featuring an intro from a book that was recently released:

Chapter 1

"The memories materialized slowly...like bubbles surfacing from the darkness of a bottomless well.

A veiled woman.

Robert Langdon gazed at her across a river whose churning waters ran red with blood.  On the far bank, the woman stood facing him, motionless, solemn, her face hidden by a shroud.  In her hand she gripped a blue tainia cloth, which she now raised in honor of the sea of corpses at her feet.  The smell of death hung everywhere. 

Seek, the woman whispered, And, ye shall find."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

What do you think? Would you keep reading?  Feel free to join us by linking your First Chapter post below.

  1. I've read all the Dan Brown novels and this one is on my list too. I'll be reading it as soon as a copy becomes available from the library.

    Hope you are enjoying it, Diane.

  3. The opening doesn't necessarily grab me but ,since this is Dan Brown's latest novel, I know I want to read it. I hope you are enjoying it.

  4. Biased because I'm not a Dan Brown fan but this one doesn't grab me - it's a bit too deliberately provocative/ mysterious for my liking.

    1. See, I like the mysterious factor (and that it is).

  5. I'd read on - I've just read The Lost Symbol, which I enjoyed.

    1. Lost Symbol is on my TBR list, for some reason, it fell off my radar for a while.

  6. The opening doesn't grab me either, but I know I'm going to read or listen to it anyway.

  7. No, this does not grab me as I do not enjoy his work. They begin with a promise of being a good novel .... and disappoint.

    It's good to be back and reading your intros and reviews, though!

  8. I read the Da Vinci code, which I enjoyed and was so popular, so I would consider reading this book too. Thanks for hosting this meme.

  15. I haven't read any of Dan Brown's works, but I have them on my TBR list. I'll be interested in your review. I did not link up this time. So very busy this week and am still reading The Grapes of Wrath. My reading time has been minimal.

  16. I'm not sure that would do it, but like some of the others I would read on because it is Dan Brown.
