This book was well written, and kept my interest. Narration could have been a bit better but i enjoyed it.
Yes Dan Brown's books always have my interest.
Not a huge fan, but he did a good job.
Yes i listened to all of it in 2 days
while I enjoy hearing about architecture and ancient history, I do not like 15 minutes to describe every little detail. takes forever to make a point. of all of his books this is the worst
Even if Brown''s science is flawed, his premise makes upsetting sense....riveting!, alarmong, Fitz with zero - pop movement of the seventies.
Engineer, wife, audiobook addict. I live for those books that you just cannot put down.
Like most people, I felt enamored with Dan Brown back with the DaVinci Code and quickly read the other books he had out at the time. Inferno was my first "return" to Mr. Brown's work in quite some time and I looked forward to the suspense, the intelligence, the devouring need to race through an exciting book. However, while Mr. Brown is just as skilled as ever in his craft of tying history and symbology into a complex plot, it doesn't hold the same anticipation any longer. It's as though the "new" has been worn off which is a little disappointing. I'm not sure that the same formula that made the DaVinci Code so exciting can continue to deliver the same power when used over and over and over.
Don't get me wrong, the story was interesting. The plot was exciting. The action and symbology were there. But since I've experienced them all before, it didn't hold my attention like the first books of Mr. Brown's did. I was disappointed that this story just couldn't come to life in the same way for me. I wanted this story to be as impactful and exciting to me and it just felt a little like eating leftovers - still tasty but never as good as the first time around.
Even seeing it in my library un-reviewed, I had to re-read the publisher summary to remind myself what the plot had been. I didn't write this review immediately after reading because honestly, how do you explain that you enjoyed something and it was exactly what you were expecting and that made it disappointing? A writer as skilled as Mr. Brown could and should branch out and find some new formulas to surprise us. This formula is getting old and predictable.
Paul Michael did a fine job of performing the book. However, this story was clunky, poorly written, and pointless. Dan Brown's Inferno felt like a trip through hell. Relief only came when the story ended and even then the reader was left wondering what was the point. The editor fell asleep and failed miserably on this novel. There were parts in later chapters that were cut and paste paragraphs from earlier chapters. Do yourself a favor and skip this one.
I've read all the Robert Langdon books and I have to say this one really has left me wanting. Dan Brown uses his usual formula which by this point is getting pretty old. I don't know what about this book was so boring, but I found my mind constantly wandering. He still has some great stuff in here, but overall it's bland and boring. I really liked his other books a lot more.
