    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 about this audiobook?

    I liked that the narrator didn't go too fast. I also liked how the narrator tried to do different voices for the different characters.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    Interesting topic! I researched online while "reading".


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    Yes. Dan Brown gives lots of details.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    Nothing. I thought it was good.

    Story
    (802)

    Researcher and thought leader Dr. Brené Brown offers a powerful new vision that encourages us to dare greatly: to embrace vulnerability and imperfection, to live wholeheartedly, and to courageously engage in our lives. In Daring Greatly, Dr. Brown challenges everything we think we know about vulnerability. Based on 12 years of research, her book argues that vulnerability is not weakness but rather our clearest path to courage, engagement, and meaningful connection.

    Fulfillment and Exuberance says: "Love Brene Brown, didn't like the narrator"
    "Wonderfully insightful"

    Where does Daring Greatly rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is the best audio book I have listened to, but I think part of that is because of the content.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked that this had real life examples and short chapters


    Did Karen White do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes but there weren't too many characters that needed different intonations.


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

    I liked listening to a chapter and then stopping to reflect on what the lesson was.
