He seems to enjoy writing books that will make people tear their hair out in fits of aplopleptic rage. Protagonist is always handsome, extremely well-educated, and single.
He purposesly sets himself apart from the main populace, observing the common culture and placing it historical context rather than participating. Protagonist has one or two defining traits that will be mentioned over and over again in lieu of characterization.
Protagonist is in constant danger from shady Antagonist, who usually has issues of his own, probably psychological, usually also sexual and religious.
Protagonist is nearly always fooled by the presence of a Traitor, who hides in plain sight as a kind, intelligent, and resourceful person until it is time to do the betraying. There are five million plot twists. Protagonist saves the world with his brain never his brawn. Protagonist and Girl ride off into sunset this part is metaphorical. The End.
His books are similarly easy to riff on, and Inferno is no exception. Namely: Repetitive plot, repetitive characters, the traitor, the global organization, the puzzle plot for no reason at all in this one seemingly , etc, etc.
See above formula. But the Langdon books in particular have their own special vocabulary. Here is my point to counteract — or maybe encompass is the better word — the points above. Even if the above points are true, and I believe they are, they do not affect my enjoyment of the book. You read a Dan Brown novel to be carried along on a plot going the same exact speed of one of those fancy foreign high-speed trains. You read a Dan Brown book to see historical facts and famous pieces of art placed in new context, or maybe just to learn something.
You read it for the secrets and the conspiracies and the ridiculously high stakes the plot hinges on. You read it for the red herrings and the betrayals. You read it to be fucking entertained. In that respect, this book is pretty much a success.
