Inferno Review

INFERNO is one of the few Dan Brown books I haven’t read (I guess Brown’s formula was wearing thin on me by the fourth instalment in the Robert Langdon series). Thankfully, the film still has enough to surprise even a semi-Brown buff such as myself!

The Girl On The Train

The Girl on the Train novel was released in 2015 and became one of the best selling novels of the year in a matter of weeks. With such popularity it was inevitable that Hollywood would turn it into a feature film with high expectations from fans.

According to Abe this all happened during World War 2.
