Publisher's Summary

Now a Major Motion Picture

With the publication of his groundbreaking novels The Da Vinci Code, The Lost Symbol, and Angels & Demons, Dan Brown has become an international best-selling sensation, seamlessly fusing codes, symbols, art, and history into riveting thrillers that have captivated hundreds of millions of fans around the world. Now Dan Brown takes listeners deep into the heart of Italy, guiding them through a landscape that inspired one of history's most ominous literary classics.

"The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis."

Harvard professor of symbology Robert Langdon awakens in a hospital in the middle of the night. Disoriented and suffering from a head wound, he recalls nothing of the last 36 hours, including how he got there...or the origin of the macabre object that his doctors discover hidden in his belongings.

Langdon's world soon erupts into chaos, and he finds himself on the run in Florence with a stoic young woman, Sienna Brooks, whose clever maneuvering saves his life. Langdon quickly realizes that he is in possession of a series of disturbing codes created by a brilliant scientist - a genius whose obsession with the end of the world is matched only by his passion for one of the most influential masterpieces ever written: Dante Alighieri's dark epic poem The Inferno.

Racing through such timeless locations as the Palazzo Vecchio, the Boboli Gardens, and the Duomo, Langdon and Brooks discover a network of hidden passageways and ancient secrets as well as a terrifying new scientific paradigm that will be used either to vastly improve the quality of life on earth...or to devastate it.

In his most riveting and thought-provoking novel to date, Dan Brown has raised the bar yet again. Inferno is a sumptuously entertaining listen - a novel that will captivate listeners with the beauty of classical Italian art, history, and literature while also posing provocative questions about the role of cutting-edge science in our future.

    Story
    "It was great entertainment for a road trip"
    Where does Inferno rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Somewhere in the middle. My favorites are still the Harry Potter books (I listened to them years ago when Jim Dale was the only narrator and thought he was fantastic). Like Angels & Demons, this book kept our interest, but I wasn't crazy about the ending. I don't want to comment much on why because I don't want to spoil it for anyone.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Robert Langdon. There aren't a lot of other characters to root for.


    What about Paul Michael’s performance did you like?

    He kept the pace of the book at a level that kept the suspense going.


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

    Not really. It wasn't very emotional, but was an entertaining book.


    Any additional comments?

    Again, wasn't crazy about the ending, but still really enjoyed the book. I listened to it along with my boyfriend while on a long car trip. He's not a reader, but he got into the story and enjoyed it with me.

    "Brown delivers again"
    If you could sum up Inferno in three words, what would they be?

    Classic Dan Brown. Loved it. The story had surprises and a great ending. Brown is a master story teller and I can't wait for his next book.

    "Fan or not?"
    Would you try another book from Dan Brown and/or Paul Michael?

    I have decided that I am just not a fan of this author. Therefore not really able to give an unbiased review.

    Story
    "Great Story - not great narrator"
    Where does Inferno rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Love Dan Brown and have read all other of his books. This is the first audio book of his I have listened too. Again the story is great but I did not enjoy the narrator.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Inferno?

    Realizing that the "Plague" was a sterility virus.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    No


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

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I found the narration stiff and annoying. Paul Michael's voice for the women in the story was awful and irritating. Did not like it at all and would not listen to anything else he narrates. Would rather read it myself instead.

    Story
    "OK but tried too hard"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Make it more believable. Dan Brown tries too hard to duplicate his earlier books--needs to move on.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Dan Brown again?

    Probably not unless reviewers said not a rehash of Angels&Demons. I was a big fan of Dan Brown but he needs to break the mold.


    What about Paul Michael’s performance did you like?

    very good


    Did Inferno inspire you to do anything?

    nope--toss up between driving 7 hours down I5 in silence or listening
