    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.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This book is an average thriller sprinkled with "who-done-it" and "look over here too get another clue". Main character development is insufficient so the readers will not have any emotional connection thus, the story line seems like a typical find clue, decode clue, leading to a real climatic ending, which never really surfaces in inferno. At the end it’s just bit to verbose on the monolithic descriptions and very light on the characters sub-plot and development. Still is a good listen/read and I give is a “C” to a C+.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    the WHO (world health organization) lack of political power


    What does Paul Michael bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    his Tone and tempo


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    NO!!!


    Any additional comments?

    it will be a long time before I read another Dan Brown book.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The story line starts full of action and details, but after chapter 11 the true purpose of the book is reveal. The author political and religious views and the event horizon and true purpose, hidden with a techno-thriller theme. He becomes extremely verbose for the purpose and in support of his personal Christian belief. The story line suffers from this as the author continue to interrupt with his religious and political overtures that add nothing but distraction to the novel.

    Extract this and it's an average book...


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The detail of tactics and technology. Additionally, the deep understanding of both Christian and Islam historical past.


    What does Christopher Lane bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Fan-freaking-tastic narration with enough suspense in his inflections. One of the very best narrations!!!


    Did Damascus Countdown inspire you to do anything?

    No...but I'm still a techno thriller , political tactical war fan.


    Any additional comments?

    ...next book for the author should caution the reader of his intent...
