    In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology, Robert Langdon, is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces: Dante’s Inferno. Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante’s dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust...before the world is irrevocably altered.

    Would you try another book from Dan Brown and/or Paul Michael?

    I've read all of the books by Dan Brown and so knew that I was probably going to be getting something formulaic. Still, I thought it was worth a try. I think this will be my last book of his, though.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Dan Brown again?

    I felt like I was listening to The Da Vinci Code or Angels and Demons, but in a different city with different art and with much worse writing. It was actually pretty hard to listen to in parts, given how slowly the plot moved and how pedestrian the writing was.


    Did Paul Michael do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    The narrator did a good job and I applaud him for trying to make the most of it. But he couldn't rescue the story.

    For 40 years Western intelligence agents have known a terrible secret: the Russians have a mole - code-named Talbot - inside the CIA. At first Talbot is suspected of killing European agents. Then a street-smart ex-cop uncovers a storm of espionage and murder on the streets of New York, while in a Long Island suburb a civic demonstration against the Russian mission masks a desperate duel of nerves and wits. Engineered by Talbot, a shadow world of suspicion and deceit is spilling onto the streets....

    What disappointed you about The Talbot Odyssey?

    I'm a big DeMille fan. Really liked all the John Corey books. This one is a disappointment, though. Plot is a bit confusing, characters aren't convincing, and action seems forced. Scott Brick does a great job, as always, but can't rescue the story.
