With Lotsa Love from gaz regn
This is one oif those books that makes you think that the author considers himself a major success so now he can just churn out garbage, whilst boasting about his knowledge of art history. This it the last dan brown book for me.
Fast and furious
1. Too many details and descriptions of touristic places, some parts seem a travel guide. 2. It is ok to misguide readers, but suddenly changing everything in 2 pages seems odd and a bit of cheating. 3. The big question remains: what's the point of all that treasure hunting and clues? The second part of the book dismisses the need of the first part.
Great for fast readers, but if you take your time and question why and what for....you realize Brown's craft at writing best-seller formats is unquestionable, the mix of interesting data as a way to lead the treasure hunting is very interesting, but it seems like he had all this information well organized and prepared to guide from one point to another and then he had to add a context and hurriedly made something up while looking for effect, but it really doesn't blend in well.
Intelligent idea, frantic reading, great material for a special effects movie, but disappointing plot coherence.
Avid Reader of Non-Fiction, cant get away from words on a page. Fiction, this is a whole new ballgame. Please tell me a story. Audio
interesting theme, not really up to par with previous books
Excellent. Paul Michael made this story worth listing to
not buy another Dan Brown book.
Great story. My husband and I loved the travelogue style and the history of the Medici's and Dante. Made me at Florence and Venice to my bucket list and will attempt to read Dante again.
Robert, of course, he has so much depth and knowledge.
Most anything would have made it better. It is a rehash of his prior books, which were reasonably good, but it seems he decided to tell the same story with a new bad guy. Plot and twists almost identical to earlier books. I can not recommend this book to anyone
That the story line was almost identical to prior books.
Great story and so well crafted..keeps you guessing. Nobody can craft so much detail and still keep it fun as Dan Brown can. One of my best reads on audible. FInished this in 2 days from buying.
Inferno was my first audiobook and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the narrator read this story! His tone and the change in his voice when speaking for each character made it so easy to follow along.
The most memorable moments of Inferno are when Robert and Sienna were on the run. Very exciting; felt like I was right there with them running from place to place uncovering the clues. I got annoyed with the least interruption...LOL!
First time, and he did a great job narrating.
The parting of Robert and Sienna and Robert's journey home were the most moving parts of the story.
My mind wandered a little too much while listening to Inferno so I would have to rewind and re-listen to the story. I'm not sure if it was the story or the reader. As always, Dan Brown interjected snippets of history and interesting factoids which I enjoyed. I wanted to give 3.5 stars.
I had this book finished in 2 days, during my work commute, knitting socks, and organizing my Audible list in Excel. The book served as background to more productive persuits, and I know how to respond if asked what I thought of this latest book in the Robert Langdon series.
It was rather bland all around.
He is easy to listen to.
It was worth it only because I was very productive with other things with this as background. When the book comes up in conversations, I can legitimately lament on my disappointment.
Time for Dan Brown to move on to fresh material.
While the storyline was a little different, this book was so much like The Da Vinci Code that I was able to predict exactly what would happen. I hate that! Well written, well researched, but disappointing all the same.
