    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

    Another great Langdon story.
    It makes the reader want to visit the places mentioned in the story.
    The story never went the way I imagined and that was another good thing.

    Story

    The music within the story was really nice.
    You should read this audio book version to feel the music melt with the story.
    Characters are well developed and the ending didn't disappoint me.

    Story

    The story is never dull and keeps up the tension.
    Everybody seems to be in danger and in need of help.
    It was hard for me to stop listening. A real page turner.

    The narrator is skilled and his narration was fit for the character, but I felt there were too many sighs.

    It is the cusp of World War I, and all the European powers are arming up. The Austro-Hungarians and Germans have their Clankers, steam-driven iron machines loaded with guns and ammunition. The British Darwinists employ fabricated animals as their weaponry. The Leviathan is a living airship, the most formidable airbeast in the skies of Europe.
