    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 made the experience of listening to Inferno the most enjoyable?

    Paul Michael did a great narration.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Robert of course!


    What does Paul Michael bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I thought he really sounded like Tom Hanks and varied his tone well for other characters.


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

    There was that Dan Brown fear twist that kept the story edgy.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the ending.

  • The Pillars of the Earth

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Got 40 hours to kill? You’ll find the time when you start listening to Lee’s take on Follett’s epic – and widely celebrated – novel of 12th-century England. The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known...of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect - a man divided in his soul...and of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame....

    What made the experience of listening to The Pillars of the Earth the most enjoyable?

    The vocals of Jon Lee.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Pillars of the Earth?

    Jack and the fire that brought the cathedral down.


    What about John Lee’s performance did you like?

    I've actually read the book many times and he sounded just like the characters in my head.


    If you could take any character from The Pillars of the Earth out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Jack and his mother. What a creative pair.

    May 1565. Suleiman the Magnificent, emperor of the Ottomans, has declared a jihad against the Knights of Saint John the Baptist. The largest armada of all time approaches the Knights' Christian stronghold on the island of Malta. The Turks know the Knights as the "The Hounds of Hell." The Knights call themselves "The Religion".

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This novel appeals to both men and women. Vivid battles, touching relationships and conflicting cultures are all explored and will leave you wanting more.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Religion?

    The night Carla played her music at the waters edge and Tannhauser was able to hear it through his fevered and weakened state in the Islamic camp.


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

    This was the first time I ever listened to Simon Vance, but he truly captured the characters.


    If you could rename The Religion, what would you call it?

    I would not rename this book. At first I was put off by the name thinking that it another book with endless religous dogma. But within just a few pages I knew this novel's title meant much more.


    Any additional comments?

    I want a sequel!
