Elaborate Description

There are two organization under observation this time. The World Health Organization and The Consortium. The latter organization’s name is different than in reality, but the type of organization is a creation of the digital age rather than an ancient organization. The methods and tools of trouble in this book are newly developed but are linked to historical analysis. The symbols that are followed Robert Langdon must follow are those shaped by Dante and his famous work of Divine Comedy.

This book is more narrative based than its predecessors which are abound in philosophy. This time the implications are economic with the base in population. The characters themselves are very morally complicated rather than the normal narratives of easily decipherable good or evil people. Complicated characters involved in a complicated plot try to highlight the costs of actions and inaction when the world itself is at stake.
