As soon as I received Inferno, I knew it was special. The way it began, as always was something only Mr. Brown can do. And of course Paul Michael delivers an awesome voice narration that is absolutely first class. I feel that the chemistry between both author and voice over really bring the stories that Dan Brown writes to life. The pace is at break neck speed, and you can't wait to get to the next chapter. Can't wait till the next epic Dan Brown novel. This guy is my favorite author, and no one else can properly come close the that of Mr. Brown. Great work.
None, only previous books from Dan Brown can even come close.
Can't choose just one. They are all super cool and stand out. I guess the 'Consortion' scenes always seemed dark and mysterious, my kina stuff.
The whole trip through the levels of hell, that was extremely moving.
Can't wait till the next novel.
Someone that is willing to let a story drag on.
Maybe it was the performance that threw me off the most because I am a big fan of the author.
I am not sure.
The plot was very predictable.
Do you read the book before you dislike my reviews?
I'm not a huge fan of this series and Dan Brown, but I have read all three books thus far and I thought that I would get "Inferno." I'm kinda amazed on how much I liked the story. Unlike his previous books, the female characters are not postmarks for Langdon. I always thought that the female characters in the other books, such as "The Lost Symbol" were very weak. That is the main reason why I wasn't too sure about this one, but the characters are a lot stronger and most noticeable.
I was talking to my friends about Dan Brown's writings and they mention that his books are something that you pickup at the airport to kill time on a flight. It's interesting with the biblical references and entertaining at the same time, but it is something that you can forget after the last page.
I just hope that the salvation to an act of biological terrorism would be put in the hands of more then just one guy with amnesia.
This book is ridiculous, and not in a fun way.
As good as Da Vinci Code was,, this was a it's opposite. Either Dan Brown did not write it, or he "slept walked" through the creation of Inferno. The plot was predictable, the writing choppy and the characters lifeless.
A very disappointing book for Brown. I can only hope that Dan Brown gets over his writer's block and does better next time..
Hi all. I'm in my 50's (that's relevant, i think), and I favor fiction. I like the british sensibility, and was introduced to the Forsyte Saga through audible ... loved it! I happen to also like Chinese writers, but they are not well represented yet at audible. Looking to follow readers with similar tastes ...
Dan Brown's books are instant best sellers. They are inventive, suspenseful and well written. This book is all of those, although i did tire of the "chase" after awhile. The narration is excellent and tempers the constant action in the book. 4 stars, as it is not The DaVinci Code.
If there had been a story at all, I would've have rated it higher.
The narrator did as well as could be expected with such a non-eventful story.
The whole book.
I loved Angels and Demons and The Da Vinci Code but Dan Brown should've stopped with these.
The book has all the items that one would expect in a Dan Brown novel. Some of them include, a quick snippet on the historical background of the place, taking the reader back to one of Langdon's lectures back in Harvard to provide more context/background, a plot that holds until the end and a thrilling ending.
The negative includes, similar style to Davindi code or Lost symbol, almost predictable events (The way Langdon's escape from harms way is almost something you can predict if you have read some or all of his previous novel) and NOT a riveting story line.

I like the continuing adventures of Robert and this one had a unique twist considering the injury he had sustained before the book even begins.
I was unsure who to trust, but at times I felt like it was a bit too much. In the end it all pans out logically, but for a minute or two audiances are left to wonder.
Find the Dante within.
Enjoyed the book, but Brown's previous entries into the saga were better.
I found myself searching the web for the references in Dan Brown's Inferno. I always enjoy the reality in his books. The way he takes historical figures and places and intertwines his fiction is never dissappointing. He writes like a conspiracy theorist but adds enough touches of truth that it seems plausible. Inferno is frightening. It made me think about subjects that I had never really considered and the repercussions of the choices people make. I think it is important to keep in mind that this book is fiction--not a conspiracy even if it touches on present day worries. It is engrossing and entertaining but not reality.
