    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.

    What disappointed you about Inferno?

    As good as Da Vinci Code was,, this was a it's opposite. Either Dan Brown did not write it, or he "slept walked" through the creation of Inferno. The plot was predictable, the writing choppy and the characters lifeless.
    A very disappointing book for Brown. I can only hope that Dan Brown gets over his writer's block and does better next time..

    This is audiobook #23 in the Casca Series. Cursed by Christ on Golgotha, condemned to outlive the ages, and wander the globe as a constant soldier. Forever fighting, surviving and waiting for Him to return. When pirates sink the merchant ship he's traveling on, Casca becomes trapped within the wreckage and dragged to the bottom of the Atlantic, where his immortal curse continues to keep him alive even as he drowns.

    What was most disappointing about Paul Dengelegi’s story?

    This was am abysmal attempt at recreating the Casca series. I will say that Mr. dengue legit did improve it his second attempt, Casca: The Defiant.

    History is rewritten in an instant as the future smashes into the past, and high-tech hardware goes head to head with World War Two technology. In the chaos that ensues, thousands are killed, but the maelstrom has only just begun. The veterans of Pearl Harbor have never seen a helicopter, or a cruise missile - let alone nanotechnology, ceramic bullets, and F22 Raptor stealth jetfighters. Allied and Axis forces are then caught in a desperate struggle to gain the upper hand.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I dearly love the "displaced in Time" books such as Guns of the South and Final Countdown. Were this to have been my first book of this genre, I would never have read another. Everone portayed in this novel are flawed and unlikable. This book would have been much better if there had been at least a few characters with redeeming values. I understand that the author probably wnted "realistic" and "beleivable" persons in his book, but I know that there are people who are likable in real life. A few in this book is not too much to ask for.


    What didn’t you like about Jay Snyder’s performance?

    Jay Snyder did a good job performing this book. It is not his fault that the material was so lack-luster.
