Manila describe as the ‘Gates of Hell’ in new Dan Brown novel Inferno


Famou novelist Dan Brown – describe Manila based on one of his characters as the Gates of Hell in his new book, “Inferno.”


The book is a take on Dante Alighieri’s hell as depicted in the epic poem “The Divine Comedy,” Brown’s “Inferno” has the character of one Sienna Brooks, who was aching to visit the Philippines expecting it to be a “wonderland of geological beauty, with vibrant seabeds and dazzling plains,” being eventually traumatized by what she described as a chaotic world of “six-hour traffic jams, suffocating pollution, horrifying sex trade.”

“I’ve run through the gates of hell,” she said, even as the book went on to describe Manila as the “most densely populated city on earth” with a sex industry whose lifeblood is fed by children “many of whom had been sold to pimps by (their own) parents.”

“All around her, she could see humanity overrun by its primal instinct for survival…When they face desperation…human beings become animals,” it read.
