Lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch’intrate

Dan Brown has, God help us, decided to do Dante.

Most pitiable quote from a member of the small battalion of ink-stained wretches tasked with translating the Master’s work:

“But it was a unique, fantastic experience – a rare opportunity to work in a group for weeks and to experience total immersion in the world of Dan Brown.”

Total immersion in the world of Dan Brown.  No wonder it’s called Inferno.
