Boring....boring....boring....I keep rewinding it and still can't get into the story. A combination of a boring story and boring narrator.
No. The premise and outcome are evil, and worse still, stupid.
The narrator was excellent
Yes. Dan Brown needs to get into a time machine and reverse the plot.
For the overpopulation of the Earth crowd and Dan Brown, here is a factoid that may help cleanse your brains:
If we built a Manhattan-type city covering only one-half the surface of Texas, everyone on Earth could live there.
Population of the word = 6,653,000,000 people
Size of Texas = 268820 sq miles
One sq mile = 27,878,400 sq ft
Texas has 7.5 trillion sq. ft.
1126 sq ft per person
Manhattan = 33.77 square miles
Population = 1,620,000
581 sq ft per person (compared to 563 sq ft per person in our giagantic Texas city covering only 1/2 of the state)
It is a simple story line, easy to figure out what is going on .. didn't need to listen to closely. I enjoyed it but not like I enjoyed Angels and Demons ... This book is not in the same category of good. So it was an okay book. If you like Dan Brown you will like it not love it
I am Not sure, I did not read the book, print version
The plot did Not quite keep me on the edge, but still very interesting
Just very relevant, really makes u think
As always Dan Brown is fun to listen to but his hero is getting way over the human level...definitely into the realm of Super Hero status.
They're all outlandish fluff. Good for listening while gardening but not worth reading
Paul Michael saves this book. I always enjoy his performances.
Not a thing but laugh at many of the situations.
It is comparable to the other Dan Brown books in the series.
This book is very similar to the first books in this series. It was a very slow start, so I was worried that I would not be that interested in it. But once the "intrigue" and the "figuring out of the clues" started, I enjoyed it. And honestly, the resulting end of the book was good. What ended up happening is not what I expected, so that is always a good end to a book.
Story kept me listening intently. This is another Dan Brown success. The performance was very good, but there were parts that were slurred, requiring a second listen. Overall, recommend this highly.
I think the Dan Brown is now overusing his trademark formula--which was fresh in "The Da Vinci Code" but is getting a bit stale now: The banty professor is put into a nasty situation and with the help of a brilliant woman solves the mystery that saves the world. Admittedly there is a bit of a twist in this one but it really doesn't successfully distinguish the book from Brown's common mold.
I thoroughly enjoyed the audiobook edition of Dan Brown's new novel Inferno. I found it a better addition to the Robert Langdon series than the fairly recent The Lost Symbol because the foreign settings here are more exotic and interesting than the Washington, DC setting of The Lost Symbol, and the background story of unchecked population growth in Inferno has more meat. Also, the parallel story of Dante's Inferno is interesting, literate, and exotic.
The book is not just a disguised travelogue of Florence, Venice, and Istanbul. The author's knowledge of classical art, artists, architecture, and history is first-rate, but Brown's skill and craft meld this material into an engrossing story, with many twists of plot, interesting characters, and at least one mad man/mad scientist. The novel is entertaining and an easy read, or listen, but the story of the population explosion and its implications for the near future is very relevant, or should be very relevant to all thinking people. Children born today, or their children, may well witness the extinction of human kind -- by our overwhelming the earth's resources or by our replacement by "trans-humans," the next step in evolution.
I do agree that the plot has some turns that seem not completely logical -- why does a man intent on hiding a secret leave many tantalizing clues to uncovering the truth? He wants the credit, no doubt, but he imperils his intention to carry out an action that is at the heart of the secret, or so it seems. The resolution of this conflict is central to the book and is not revealed until the very end of the story. For those of you who have not finished Inferno, enjoy!
I collect spores, molds, and fungus.
As far as the Langdon series goes I'm done with Dan Brown.
This book is really bad guys. There is hardly any character development, the dialogue is like cardboard, and the plot is pretty much plotless. Robert Langdon with amnesia? Gawd how much more corny can you get? Same "on the run" with a BEAUTIFUL BRAINY woman, same clues in historical works of art, same evil unknown threatening world destruction. It seriously feels like someone forced Brown to put out another book by a certain deadline so he did what he could to get words on paper ASAP. A huge disappointment.
