    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 try another book from Dan Brown and/or Paul Michael?

    I would wait to see very good reviews before trying another Dan Brown book. I do find myself comparing what Dan Brown writes to the DaVinci Code which might be unfair as that was a remarkably good book, very well written, engaging and interesting.


    Have you listened to any of Paul Michael’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I thought the reading was very good.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I liked some of the history, and the topic of population was interesting.


    Any additional comments?

    I found myself having to accept too many far-fetched and convenient coincidences, and only at the end did some explanations make these seem more plausible. I would have liked to be let in earlier, at least given some good hints. I also think there may be too much preoccupation with writing it to read well for a potential movie that it loses something as a book, or at least the focus seems to be on a movie and not on the book.
