I love to read and working on my first book. Maybe it will be on Audible someday.
I absolutely loved this book. My wife bought me the illustrated edition for Christmas a couple of years ago (Christmas before last) and I just got around to finally reading before last Christmas. Many things came up, including illness, and I just finished it today. I read the print version of the book while listening to the audiobook.
The narrator is wonderful! It was never difficult to tell who was speaking during a dialogue scene. Even his female voices were quite distinguishable from each other. His pacing was just right for me; not too fast and not too slow.
I have read all of the Robert Langdon series of books by Dan Brown, and this is easily his best one since the DaVinci Code, which I also have in audiobook.
As the book opens Robert Langdon is in the hospital in Italy having been shot in the head. When he wakes up he finds that he cannot remember anything about the last couple of days. He meets Dr. Sienna Brookes when he wakes up, but barely has a chance to get his bearings and figure out where he is before a gunman enters the hospital and starts shooting up the place while gunning for Langdon. Sienna helps him escape the hospital, and this is where the adventure around Italy begins.
This book should NOT be missed. There are so many twists and turns and Robert Langdon is never sure who to trust or when to trust them. Fans of Dan Brown will not be disappointed by Inferno. If you can, get the illustrated version which has tons of pictures of the places and objects that Robert and Sienna encounter along the way.
Great follow up for the Robert Langdon series.
No. This was the first Paul Michael's performance for me, and I will look for other books he has performed. Easy to listen to, and captivating narrative.
The story plot is as usual a twisty idea from Dan Brown. This is my third book of his writing and i am liking it. My next is the lost symbol and it has very high benchmarks to meet. I have to say though that one of Dan Brown's key excellence is his care for details, and in an audio book format (for me) I cannot grasp such detailed image. Fortunately I have issues with long written detailed books in usual reading experience, and for this combo of reason I can only listen to Dan Brown and cannot read his books. This does not have any thing to do with the book and everything to do with my preference, i am sharing this so any one with same preference does not feel threatened by the obsessive details provided by the book, your mind will utilize what it can, and you will survive.
I really liked the ending, it wasn't a cliche. The attention to detail and history makes all his books great.
Dan Brown is fabulous, and I love every story I've read of his. I only wish that I could see all the things he writes about as a read about them! Can someone develop a virtual audio book, please?! :)
I found the book to be surprisingly dark. Once the book got started, the characters came to life. The secrecy aspect gave the story a special twist.
