    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 HAVE NOT FINISHED THIS BOOK YET, HOWEVER, THE STORY, SO FAR, IS WONDERFUL, BUT THE READER NEEDS LESSONS IN PRONUNCIATION. IT IS UNDERSTANDABLE THAT A FEW FOUR SYLLABLE WORDS MIGHT BE INCORRECTLY PRONOUNCED. HOWEVER, THE WORD DOGE, USED OVER AND OVER, AS IT NEEDS TO BE, AND PRONOUNCED DOUGHJAY GETS REALLY ANNOYING. I JUST WONDER WHY THIS SUBJECT WOULD NOT BE CHECKED BEFORE THE FINAL RECORDING! SORRY TO COMPLAIN ABOUT SOMETHING THAT MIGHT SEEM MINOR TO MOST. I SHALL REVIEW THE STORY WHEN FINISHED, I JUST NEEDED TO RANT.

    Mike Wingate had a rough childhood  —  he was abandoned at a playground at four years old and raised in foster care. No one ever came to claim him, and he has only a few, fragmented memories of his parents. Now, as an adult, Mike is finally living the life he had always wanted  —  he’s happily married to Annabel, the woman of his dreams; they have a precocious eight-year-old daughter, Kat.

    What made the experience of listening to You're Next the most enjoyable?

    The prose, the story line, the fact that this writer does not telescope the plot/ending. An extremely good mystery/thriller that has me, now, a fan who will download all of Greg Hurwitz books. I must also mention the reader, Scott Brick, who is absolutely a perfectchoice.


    Any additional comments?

    After listening to many books, I have finally found a writer that is worthy! Great prose, incredible story line, that does not telescope the plot/ending. A thriller in the true sense of the word. Frankly, I wanted to go straight through to the end, however, as it is so very good, I also wanted to savour it, and am still listening. I just wanted to share this so that more listeners can enjoy a fine writer. I shall download the rest of his books, hopefully, they will all be unabridged. If not, could Audible make it so. Thank you Greg Hurwitz, you have restored my faith in the written word. An avid Los Angeles listener.

    The sequel you’ve been waiting for: the follow-up to the sensational number-one best seller The Devil Wears Prada. Andrea "Andy" Sachs is on top of the world, running her own very successful high-fashion bridal magazine. But she got there with the help of her rolodex - actually, the rolodex of Miranda Priestly, her former nightmare of a boss. As Andy's success grows, she realizes she'll soon have to face Miranda. Still, Andy can hardly anticipate the horrifying reality that’s approaching - a reversal so profound that she will be squarely in Miranda’s crosshairs once more.

    What would have made Revenge Wears Prada better?

    It would have been better to have not bothered to write this at all.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    A good writer, good prose, great story, something I normally do. This was an extremely bad choice. I have no doubt that the original movie, The Devil Wears Prada, was far superior to the written word.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator was fine, however, a lesson or two in pronunciation would have been a good idea.


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

    None I didn't even bother to finish it. It was too painful to listen to.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't waste money buying it.
