The Future 260x420

The Future is Al Gore’s latest foray into speculation about where he thinks the world is headed over the next several decades. In this well-written and thought-provoking book, he hasn’t found a lot of reasons to be any more optimistic than he was in An Inconvenient Truth seven years ago, at least with regard to such frightening prospects as massive global climate change, the continued and increasing disproportionate power in the hands of corporations and their lobbyists, and the dangerously sky-rocketing affluence of new middle classes throughout the developing world.



<Spoiler Alert – Some plot points and locations from the novel will be mentioned in the review>

Inferno is Dan Brown’s latest Robert Langdon thriller, and with Brown there are a few things you know you are going to get: non-stop action, detailed descriptions of exotic locales (heck, DC is exotic to me, so even The Lost Symbol did this), cyphers and puzzles, good-but-not-great writing, and enough gotchas to keep your head spinning.
