Publisher's Summary

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.

Please note: This audiobook will be released on Tuesday, May 14, at 3:00 am Eastern Daylight Time.

    "symbology professor saves the world again"

    honestly the story line is getting a bit old. How many crazy people really want to destroy the world and leave behind a trail of obscure clues that only a Harvard symbology professor can decypher?

    I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.

    "Outstanding Again"

    Mr. Brown never disappoints. I could not stop listening. I listened to it in less than 24 hours and started it again.

    "Simple and Sweet"
    What made the experience of listening to Inferno the most enjoyable?

    Narrator did an excellent job with the accents, characterizations and pace.


    What other book might you compare Inferno to and why?

    The book follows the traditional formula for the Langdon novels.


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

    No


    Any additional comments?

    The book was an easy "read" mixing entertainment and learning together and broaching a topic of increasing interest. The narrator did an excellent job and not once did the plot line drag or slow.

    Story
    "Another Great Robert Langdon Character"
    Where does Inferno rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Among other audiobooks this is one of the best


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I am a huge fan of the Robert Langdon character. He is a semi regular guy that help save the world.... how can you not like that?


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Probably the scene where you find out that Robert stole the death mask and he is finding out about it the same time we are.


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

    No it took about two weeks of intermittent listening


    Any additional comments?

    Nope

    "Good Story, Excellent Narration, Predictable"
    Would you try another book from Dan Brown and/or Paul Michael?

    Possibly, after reading two others the writer has become predictable.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Dan Brown? Why or why not?

    Possibly, after reading two others the writer has become predictable.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The location information and historical information is always a plus.


    Any additional comments?

    This series seems to be the same basic premise over and over again. They're not a bad read at all, but if you've read one you will quickly predict what will happen in the next.

    "Fooled again"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    That it takes the author 2 pages to say the obvious things we already know are coming.


    Any additional comments?

    It's now clear to me that Dan Brown only has about 50 pages of a story and then adds so much filler that you find yourself yelling at the iPod to just get on with it. Paul Michael is good but I now associate him with Dan Brown endless rambling to fill enough pages for his publisher. Shame on me. I was through my wish list and new I'd be disappointed but I wasted my credit anyway.

    Story
    "SO good... then the ending..."
    What did you love best about Inferno?

    I love how Dan Brown weaves history and conspiracy together so effortlessly.


    What other book might you compare Inferno to and why?

    Naturally, Dan Brown's last book (The Lost Symbol) comes to mind - but I enjoyed this one much more.


    Any additional comments?

    I was telling everyone to read this book long before I finished because of how much I was enjoying it. Then the plot came to it's climax... and the big reveal happened... and then the book ended. I was so unhappy with the ending - and unfortunately that's literally all I can say! No spoilers here - just one man's opinion that the ending is a very difficult conclusion to accept. I'm not sure how I wanted it to end; but it certainly wouldn't have been like this.

    Story
    "It's not his best work, but it's ok."
    Where does Inferno rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I've read Davinci Code, Angels and Demons, the lost symbol. This would be at the bottom of the list.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It was cleaver.


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

    I don't remember. But he is very good.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really.


    Any additional comments?

    The other books centered the story in something important or that people is or was always intrigued. This one over population and Dante Aligieri is the main issue. Not as interesting as the previous ones. (I'm not saying that is not important, just not good for this type of book)

    Story
    "Wait For The Movie"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The entire story felt like a screenplay. The historical data is very informative, but not enough to carry the plot. It was so tedious to listen to. I had to stop 3 times, I finally made myself complete the book during my holiday. Please wait for the movie the narrator's historical read is great but the character were lacking...but I think that was primarily due to the author.
