In his international blockbusters The Da Vinci Code, Angels & Demons, and The Lost Symbol, Dan Brown masterfully fused history, art, codes, and symbols. In this riveting new thriller, Brown returns to his element and has crafted his highest-stakes novel to date.
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.

The author appears to want to share his wealth of knowledge to the point of boredom. He goes on and on droning about Italy and it gets to the point where you just stop listening.
Something by Thomas Perry to get back to a good author.
Considering the content, he did OK
Almost all of it as the story line is lost in all the drone
I like historial mysteries and Dan Brown in particular. He presents much historically valid information and this is what I really like. It is not a far out novel with unbelievable situations.
I have listened to several of his narrations and they are very rich and varied in delivery. He is excellent.
I was afraid it would not be as good as Angels and Demons or the DaVinci Code, but it was totally up to par in all respects. Maybe more thought provoking because of the serious issues it presents.
The mention of every landmark (in Italian)
A good ending
A good clear voice.
I liked the ending
I will NOT try another Dan Brown book!
Kind of long for and slow in some parts.
That's it? Just another day in the life of Robert Langdon.
The narrator did a good job of creating the verbal images of the book.
Not really. Some parts did make you want to continue but it slows up a bit with all of the art history that makes it sound more like blah blah blah. Then the story kicks in again.
Good read if your a Dan Brown fan and a fan of the Robert Langdon series but its more of a rinse and repeat of the past books.
I like that Dan Brown uses topics that are very current. I read Inferno and than began to notice how much Dante is out there and population growth is a big topic of conversation. Only bad part about audible is I would love to see all the art work referenced in the book.
I have read each of the other books in this "Robert Langdon" (aka Tom Hanks with a really terrible haircut) series, so it seemed fitting that I should also include this one. It was good. Very Dan Brown-ish. Langdon travels to Istanbul which was so fun. Istanbul being a favorite city of mine, I loved learning more about it through this book.
Likely others will read it for the same reason I did, "I read the others, so why not this one." Lowering your expectations for it might be a good idea.
I finished it. It was not the worst book I have listened to but let's all agree that Dan Brown has told this story and it is time to move on. At times tedious at others a bit preachy. The narration helped keep me going.
I was very disappointed with this book. I typically enjoy Dan Brown, but this book was too similar to other versions but with less suspense.
Not only way the story engrossing from start to finish, but the reader was absolutely phenomenal in the way he could distinguish himself between characters.
From the very beginning of the story it was non-stop excitement, just as I've come to expect from any Dan Brown book.
I enjoyed the entire book, but the twist at the end was excellent.
Better than The DaVinci Code
The location & the history.
The twist about Siena.
I like that there is always a bit of truth to the fiction.
