    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 was one of the most memorable moments of Inferno?

    for me the most memorable moment is the descriptive narration of Roberts trek through the grounds at the Pitti Palace, the surrounding area of the Uffitzi and St Marks Square. Take me back to my favorite place in the world.

    not sure


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Great story, the ending slowed down a bit too much

    Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.

    What did you love best about The Witness?

    I love the strong character, I can identify with how standoff Abigil is with those she doesn't know or want to know.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I would hate to see a person go through what Abilgil (Elizabeth) goes through. I would like to believe that falsify information is more difficult, yet someone with a high IQ might be adept enough to figure it out, get the degree they are looking for, start their own company, and hide in plain sight.


    What does Julia Whelan bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    I like how the character, situation and description of the area can transport me into the story.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I really liked the narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    Never really like Nora Roberts books, I gave this one a try and was surprised that I liked the story line, character and how strong the main character is in this story.

    First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

    Nicole says: "You love it or you hate it..."
    "Interesting but too long"
    Overall

    Not as bad as I thought the story might be, some areas were just to long and unnecessary. Great character development.

    Mikael Blomkvist, crusading journalist and publisher of the magazine Millennium, has decided to publish a story exposing an extensive sex trafficking operation between Eastern Europe and Sweden, implicating well-known and highly placed members of Swedish society, business, and government. On the eve of publication, the two reporters responsible for the story are brutally murdered.

    David says: "irritatingly engrossing"

    Lisbeth is at it again, and I am glad I was along for the ride. Kudo's to another great book, I am waiting for the third book in this series. Love the narrator, please keep him for the third book.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    Pamela Murphy says: "COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN"
    "Awesome"
    Overall

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I am a James Patterson fan and disagree with others who believe the book is ineffective. Yes the book is long, but it is needed for character building and the twist and turns that take place near the end. Some of the topics in the book are disturbing, yet I understand why the author added them. I highly recommend this book to all my friends and family.

    In my opinion the book is an elementary Silence of the Lambs meets Angels and Demons. I am left longing to understand what happens to the "girl with the dragoon tattoo".

    Lastly, I too would like to see this as a movie.
