    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 did you like best about Inferno? What did you like least?

    The pace of the book was the best part
    The worst was the feeling that it was all for nothing


    If you’ve listened to books by Dan Brown before, how does this one compare?

    The daVinci code was I believe the best of them


    Could you see Inferno being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes.

    On January 26, 2009, during the depth of the financial crisis and having just completed five years as President of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, Timothy F. Geithner was sworn in by President Barack Obama as the 75th Secretary of the Treasury of the United States. Now, in a strikingly candid, riveting, and historically illuminating memoir, Geithner takes listeners behind the scenes during the darkest moments of the crisis.

    Where does Stress Test rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    not the best it's actually hard to stop listening to it. Geithner is a convincing guy and it really makes you feel the stress and despair of the whole situation


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Stress Test?

    the moments just prior to the results of the stress tests to the bank


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes, definitely


    Any additional comments?

    If you liked this one, you should read on the brink and too big to fail

    "Three knives were buried up to their brass cross guards in the man's chest. Richard recognized the knife handles. All three were the style carried by the men of the First File. He looked from those blades that should have killed the big man, up to his face. That was when he realized the true horror of the situation, and the reason for the unbearable stench of death." Sequel to the #1 New York Times best seller The Omen Machine.

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

    No, it was a worthy continuation to the omen machine which was itself a bit of a boring book. Richard makes too much of a.difference in battle, the mother confessor is a problem as usual since chainfire.Also Richard not wanting to live without her is kind of repetitive.


    Was The Third Kingdom worth the listening time?

    No

    Since 1990, when Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time® burst on the world with its first book, The Eye of the World, listeners have been anticipating the final scenes of this extraordinary saga, which has sold over 40 million copies in over 32 languages. When Robert Jordan died in 2007, all feared that these concluding scenes would never be written. But working from notes and partials left by Jordan, established fantasy writer Brandon Sanderson stepped in to complete the masterwork.

    Amazon Customer says: "End of one of my favorite fantasy series ever."

    If you could sum up A Memory of Light in three words, what would they be?

    I've listened to the whole the wheel of time series. their performance was great all around
