    After being murdered by a mystery assailant, navigating his way through the realm between life and death, and being brought back to the mortal world, Harry realizes that maybe death wasn’t all that bad - because he is no longer Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard. He is now Harry Dresden, Winter Knight to Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness. After Harry had no choice but to swear his fealty, Mab wasn’t about to let something as petty as death steal away the prize she had sought for so long.

    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 recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Not unless they were planning a trip to Italy


    Would you ever listen to anything by Dan Brown again?

    Take any previous book, subtract Catholic & Vatican, replace with Dante & Italy and you have the same book. Then never ending descriptions & history of every little bit of architecture had me fast forwarding in the hope that the story would pick up. Narration was good.

    Survivors is the all-new soul-shattering climax to the postapocalyptic trilogy, featuring a deadly virus, military action, global devastation - and zombies. A lot can change in three months: Wars can be decided, nations can be forged...or entire species can be brought to the brink of annihilation. The Morningstar Virus, an incredibly virulent disease, has swept the face of the planet, infecting billions. The infected hosts rampage, attacking anything that remains uninfected.

    Story

    This last part of the trilogy seemed to wander a bit more than the first 2 parts and the ending was a bit abrupt but not a bad listen. It brought the story to a close. I'm going back to listen to all 3 parts together to see it was a difference in writing style or maybe plot that left me feeling it was only a 3 star listen.

    Story

    I've never been able to make it thru the original novel but toss in zombies and ninjas and I am hooked. Listened because of Seth Grahame-Smith's other novel but was unsure at first that it would be different from the zombie free edition. Couldn't put it down! I found myself sitting in the driveway to listen to just a bit more.

    This is the way the world ends: with a nanosecond of computer error in a Defense Department laboratory and a million casual contacts that form the links in a chain letter of death. And here is the bleak new world of the day after: a world stripped of its institutions and emptied of 99 percent of its people. A world in which a handful of panicky survivors choose sides - or are chosen.

    This has always been one of my favorite books so to be able to listen to it made it even more special. Mr. Gardner gave life to characters that I thought I knew. Things I had forgotten mixed with the stuff I remembered.

    It is a very detailed book that gets that holds true after more than 30 years. Thanks Audible and Mr. King.

    When we last left the mighty wizard detective Harry Dresden, he wasn't doing well. In fact, he had been murdered by an unknown assassin. But being dead doesn't stop him when his friends are in danger. Except now he has nobody, and no magic to help him. And there are also several dark spirits roaming the Chicago shadows who owe Harry some payback of their own. To save his friends-and his own soul-Harry will have to pull off the ultimate trick without any magic...

    Overall

    I too loved James' reading but my understanding is he cancelled the day he was to begin recording the book. Things happen. It'll be odd listening to a different voice but John is very good. A few chapters in and the story will be the focus, not the voice. Go back and listen to James reading the first few books. Not nearly as polished as he became by book 4. His breathing is annoying and he changed the pronunciation of Marcone. I'll buy the audio and listen to it repeatedly as I have to the other books. Harry is dead: He lost his home, car, office, lab, love, and daughter. His view of everything is different. Maybe a different voice is logical.

    One of the most popular suspense novels of all time. A well-dressed man stalks the high-class neighborhoods of New York City. He is armed with an ice axe. His victims are strangers. And one cop, Captain Ed Delaney must solve a series of bizarre, gruesome murders that defy logic or method. This shocking story has captured the imaginations of millions like no other modern thriller.

    Overall

    I read this when it first came out and enjoyed it. Thirty years later I listened to it and enjoyed it just as much. Not high action, just a good detective novel with characters you can't help but care about. It does seem a little slow at places in the beginning when details bog it down but everything builds up to a great finish.
