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.

Just a woman with an unhealthy addiction to literature, the beach and a ice cold drink.
I wouldn't say love, I would say simply enjoyed this book. It is a cool concept that he is trying to recover his memory in the process but its starting to sound like a repetitive storyline he is on. Time crunch, cross country travelings, seemingly non exhausted main carachters who never sleep and still remain clearheaded and knowledge of random facts while barely out of grasp of the enemy. He's still got great writing skill and nice plot twists, but I predicted the ending in the first half of the book and yup, I was right.
Nope, predicted the ending early on. But still listened because I like art history and he's a good story teller.
Nope, but he did quite good considering.
Nope, just slightly aggravated as it took 18 hours to tell this predictable tale.
Good story, well written, good timing, but predictable.
A Dan Brown super fan
It follows the same formula as all his other books.
I have no idea
Disappointment. I was hoping for something more creative.
Please Dan Brown, stop writing the same books with different story lines. I could not even finish the book. This will probably be my last Dan Brown book
Plot lacks direction far too much padding
No but this is not very gripping
Not racy enough
Dan Brown is relying on his reputation established by the Da Vinci Code. He should get away from this type of plot but it seems he has run out of new ideas
The story line was contrived and poorly structured, and the author was too verbose.
I will never listen to another Dan Brown novel again.
The narrator was good, but not good enough to make the book palatable.
The characters were prisoners of a bad plot.
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.
Robert Langdon. There aren't a lot of other characters to root for.
He kept the pace of the book at a level that kept the suspense going.
Not really. It wasn't very emotional, but was an entertaining book.
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.
If you love Dan Brown, you will most defiantly love this book! It's got great twists and stays interesting :)
Nothing made me care about what happened.
I don't think the narrator mattered.
I liked some of Brown's other books, I just couldn't get through this one.
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.
Exposure to history and geography in extremely palatable fashion and Brown's penchant for provoking readers to think.
The predictable flow of the action part of the story.
