Convince Me to Read: INFERNO

I am incredibly hesitant about reading brand new books. I get nervous about investing my time in titles that are so new there aren’t usually a ton of reader reviews (which I trust much more than newspaper reviews). Because of that, I’m going to throw out some titles here, on Book Riot, and see what YOU think of them. I’m going to ask you to convince me to read it (or not to read it), below in the comments. Those of you who have read it will get a chance to say what you think, those of you who are hesitant to read it will get to see what other readers think. Only rule: no spoilers please!

I’ve read the other three books in this series, but I wonder: did we need another? I’m surprised by how many people have cruised through this book and are recommending it to me. These are people who usually have good taste in books and like to be entertained and made to think.

Is this just a good break from heavier reads? Does it have more to it than I’m expecting it to? Did it keep your attention because you are invested in the series or because you thought the book had merit on its own?

Why should I (and other readers) read this book?
