It,s the worst book DanBrown has written. All his other books were so good.
No,it was rubbish.
Narrator did an excellent job with the accents, characterizations and pace.
The book follows the traditional formula for the Langdon novels.
The book was an easy "read" mixing entertainment and learning together and broaching a topic of increasing interest. The narrator did an excellent job and not once did the plot line drag or slow.
While the hisstorical details were at times interesting, the story itself was yet another improbable treasure hunt. I found it impossible to understand or to relate to any of the characters. The plot twists left me just feeling frustrated not intrigued.
Despite appearing in several books, the main character does not feel like a real person to me. I have no idea what motivates him.
I thought he did a serviceable job, but I found some of the accents distracting.
I recommend skipping this book and reading Dante instead.
This book is so filled with repetition that there were several parts that I could repeat from memory by the end. For instance, the same video was described using the same words 5 or 6 times from different characters points of view. It was almost as if Brown had to reach a word limit. I also felt as though the descriptions of art and architecture were much more involved (and boring) than in his previous books. I just had a very hard time getting through this one. It was not the action packed thriller I was hoping for.
Dan Brown can definitely tell a great story; however, the heavy-handed and dubious conclusion left a really bad taste toward the book. Such a great story with all its twists and turns, surprise character revelations and suspense, deserved much better than a tired and tried "sermon" on a scientifically doubtful premise.
The Great Gatsby
A great narration
Yes, the way it was read was truly engaging.
the voice and the depth of the feeling the book invokes
it made me listen attentively and made me stop from what I was doing
I like listening to it very much!
Among other audiobooks this is one of the best
I am a huge fan of the Robert Langdon character. He is a semi regular guy that help save the world.... how can you not like that?
Probably the scene where you find out that Robert stole the death mask and he is finding out about it the same time we are.
No it took about two weeks of intermittent listening
Having traveled Europe I enjoyed the history lessons but OMG!!! I thought about getting the abridged version but I think it was 1/3 the length of this one.
Best: The narrator was AMAZING.
Least: The book felt forced and contrived and the suspense came off as false. Too many formulas in one cake just does not bake.
Read it before he submitted it.
He is always amazing.
Thats the problem, it was written for the screen not the reader.
Hi I'm Matt. I help companies get found online in Google. I love to read, and I love just about anything to do with Science, & learning.
At 17 hours + it's a little bit longer than I expected. But at 17 hours + it was perfection. Having traveled myself too many of these places, I was easily able to follow the story in my mind's eye. I found myself listening to Inferno during the evenings, out on the porch, during the days at the beach, and sometimes relaxing before bed. Although I would say this probably isn't the best relaxing book as some scenes get pretty intense. But that's what made it fun. I've read most of Brown's books. This one is a winner again.
I'm really looking forward to seeing the movie... A definite recommend from me. A+
I like magical realism.
I liked the story, but it was not exceptional. I liked the narrator, but I did not find his performance particularly exceptional.
Overall, I'll remember that I read it and the general plot, but I found it to be a pretty unmemorable book.
