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

    If this would have been the 1st of a series, OK. In this one Langdon sounded like a novice in research after De Vinci & Demons.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    the point of over population, hunger, and world health only needed to be stated 2-3 times, we got the message.Langdon, who was my favorite character in DeVinci & Demons, dropped in the believable category. He seemed like a novice in the research and investigation arena, letting the other characters lead him where they wanted. He is smarter than that!


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Paul Michael?

    Absolutely


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

    if they do, Tom Hanks, of course, he'll increase the credibility to the character as long as he is allowed to create the character as he was in DeVinci.Maggie Smith as the WHO leader.Ben Kingsley as the Consortium's provostVayentha = Portia de Rossi.Bertrand Zobrist = Anthony Hopkins

    Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to deliver an evening lecture in the U.S. Capitol. Within minutes of his arrival, the night takes a bizarre turn. A disturbing object is discovered in the Capitol Building. The object is an ancient invitation, meant to usher its recipient into a long-lost world of hidden esoteric wisdom. And when Langdon's mentor is kidnapped, Langdon's only hope of saving him is to accept this invitation and follow wherever it leads him.

  • Macbeth: A Novel

    Macbeth: A Novel brings the intricacy and grit of the historical thriller to Shakespeare’s tale of political intrigue, treachery, and murder. In this full-length novel written exclusively for audio, authors A. J. Hartley and David Hewson rethink literature’s most infamous married couple, grounding them in a medieval Scotland whose military and political upheavals are as stark and dramatic as the landscape in which they are played.

    Would you listen to Macbeth: A Novel again? Why?

    Yes, it was more than I expected and I know I missed some activity. I already have relistened to different segments and had missed crucial items in the first listening.
    I had to read Macbeth in English Lit & just didn't get the poetry and the rhythm. this was much more enjoyable!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Macbeth: A Novel?

    when the young orphan died drinking the wine Lady Macbeth made for the guards, and when Macbeth tries to justify their actions for the murder and of course


    Have you listened to any of the narrators???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but I'll be looking for more! I love when the narrator takes on the accent & culture of the main character, it adds so much to the reading & meaning of the book!
