I love his incorporation of actual historical events and actual places you can go visit
The trip through the museum
This one had a particularly good twist without knowing who the actual culprit is until the end. And it was a good one.
I would wait to see very good reviews before trying another Dan Brown book. I do find myself comparing what Dan Brown writes to the DaVinci Code which might be unfair as that was a remarkably good book, very well written, engaging and interesting.
I thought the reading was very good.
I liked some of the history, and the topic of population was interesting.
I found myself having to accept too many far-fetched and convenient coincidences, and only at the end did some explanations make these seem more plausible. I would have liked to be let in earlier, at least given some good hints. I also think there may be too much preoccupation with writing it to read well for a potential movie that it loses something as a book, or at least the focus seems to be on a movie and not on the book.
The narrator at least makes a really boring and slow story bearable.
Inferno is very different from the previous Dan Brown books. It is extremely slow and lacks the constant action and suspense evident in his previous books. This book was an effort to go through, and I couldn't wait for it to end.
Robert Langdon .. Though he was boring in this book.
Not at all, you can't listen to more than 30min without becoming bored. I fell asleep,several times listening to this book as the story was so slow. Do not listen while driving :-)
This book is a big disappointment to me for a Dan Brown book. I loved all his previous books, but this one lacked the action, mystery and suspense you found in his previous books. Very disappointed.
Just a woman with an unhealthy addiction to literature, the beach and a ice cold drink.
I wouldn't say love, I would say simply enjoyed this book. It is a cool concept that he is trying to recover his memory in the process but its starting to sound like a repetitive storyline he is on. Time crunch, cross country travelings, seemingly non exhausted main carachters who never sleep and still remain clearheaded and knowledge of random facts while barely out of grasp of the enemy. He's still got great writing skill and nice plot twists, but I predicted the ending in the first half of the book and yup, I was right.
Nope, predicted the ending early on. But still listened because I like art history and he's a good story teller.
Nope, but he did quite good considering.
Nope, just slightly aggravated as it took 18 hours to tell this predictable tale.
Good story, well written, good timing, but predictable.
A Dan Brown super fan
It follows the same formula as all his other books.
I have no idea
Disappointment. I was hoping for something more creative.
Please Dan Brown, stop writing the same books with different story lines. I could not even finish the book. This will probably be my last Dan Brown book
Plot lacks direction far too much padding
No but this is not very gripping
Not racy enough
Dan Brown is relying on his reputation established by the Da Vinci Code. He should get away from this type of plot but it seems he has run out of new ideas
The story line was contrived and poorly structured, and the author was too verbose.
I will never listen to another Dan Brown novel again.
The narrator was good, but not good enough to make the book palatable.
The characters were prisoners of a bad plot.
Somewhere in the middle. My favorites are still the Harry Potter books (I listened to them years ago when Jim Dale was the only narrator and thought he was fantastic). Like Angels & Demons, this book kept our interest, but I wasn't crazy about the ending. I don't want to comment much on why because I don't want to spoil it for anyone.
Robert Langdon. There aren't a lot of other characters to root for.
He kept the pace of the book at a level that kept the suspense going.
Not really. It wasn't very emotional, but was an entertaining book.
Again, wasn't crazy about the ending, but still really enjoyed the book. I listened to it along with my boyfriend while on a long car trip. He's not a reader, but he got into the story and enjoyed it with me.
If you love Dan Brown, you will most defiantly love this book! It's got great twists and stays interesting :)
