Yes - His books, while a bit trite, are entertaining.
Predictable...but still fulfilling.
The inevitable Dan Brown plot twist in the middle.
If someone else was paying and there were drinks involved.
This book provided a fun distraction for me while I was packing my apartment. Sometimes I just want to be entertained! Inferno did the trick.
I like Paul Michael`s way of reading the book, and off course: The book itself
The tempo. I figured out some of the "surprises" and I loved that. I also liked the many references to Dante`s inferno and actually wanted to read it afterwards. I was also interested in the idea: What if someone really wants to "kill" people because we become so many people on earth?
The end when they arrive in turkey
Prior to this book, I was 75% pleased with Brown's books. I loved The DaVinci Code and Angels and Demons, and I enjoyed The Lost Symbol. I wasn't a huge fan of Deception Point. This one falls below Deception Point. I found myself wondering multiple times if I should just stop listening since I didn't care how it ended.
The last 90 minutes of the book held my attention. Otherwise it was very difficult to get through. Overall, no, I don't feel like it was worth the listening time.
I am always amazed at how Dan Brown can create a fantastic story every time. Great book, great theme, well told by a very good narrator. It has been a pleasure.
Fun and exciting book with lots of interesting history like you'd expect from Dan Brown but when the protagonist finds out what's going on, it reminded of what happened when I used to watch Scooby Doo. All is not what it seems! Zoinks!
Learned a lot about Italian art and especially the Divine Comedy, good pace to story
Very well done
Pretty formulaic but still enjoyable
The layman's terms in which Dan Brown writes his stories, and the way in which Paul Michael (the Narrator) reads Brown's books.... he reads them as if he wrote them himself!
Angels and Demons
The Divinci Code
Any of Brown's Books
The way in which he really knows Dan Brown's thoughts and how he reads Browns books as though they were his own.
This book is definitely one of Brown's BEST!!!!!!!
Why it didn't get the media attention that his other books did, I may never know.... but it is a shame!
I don't know why, but this was the hardest 'Robert Langdon' book to get into. All the other books grabbed me from the begining. It took several chapters for this one to capture my full attention. Overall good story though. Gives you a lot to think about afterwards.
It read like a book report. If I wanted to listen to a translation of the Divine Comedy, I would have bought it. It read like the audio version of a fan pic. I've read Dan Brown before and while I admire his research ability, his storytelling fell flat on this one.
Something with a plot. Maybe something by Robert Heinlein.
Sienna. Weak psychopathic not-even-love interest. Couldn't even feel sorry for her. Robert Langdon needs to get himself some new friends. Maybe some leftover underground Cathars?
It just went on and on and. . .
