    "No Da Vinci Code"

    While not a bad story, this installment in the Robert Langdon series lacks the excitement and frantic pacing of the others.

    If you're a big Robert Langdon fan then this book will fill the need, but if you're looking for an exciting scavenger hunt style mystery there are better options out there.

    "As thrilling as every book in the series."

    Robert Langdon never disappoints. And the escapades to save the world are enthralling again. And the sentiment at the end is particularly nice.

    "Captivating"

    Intriguing to say the least. I was surprised by the lack of a romantic subplot in this story. A compelling thesis.

    "Not Dan Brown's Best.. but still good!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If you like his previous books, it's definitely worth the listen


    What other book might you compare Inferno: A Novel to and why?

    Just like all the rest of his books. Formulaic, entertaining and fun though

    Loved the descriptions of the buildings

    Story
    "Very believable!"

    A hauntingly fictional tale that was very believable. I am not a scientist, obviously, but this stuff made sense. I would ask this counterpoint, however, rather than controlling population, couldn't we figure out a way to welcome all who come to this earth by sharing resources and better managing growth and renewal of abandoned areas...e.g., the abandoned areas of Detroit.

    "Another great story"

    I was compelled to finish even at the risk of being late for work. The only issue I have is with the description of the art and historic places, this seemed a bit like filler at times. My mind started to wander from the story during some of the lengthen descriptions.

    "17 chapters in, character still basically sitting"

    17 chapters in, character still basically sitting around confused. Really? Pacing is weird and draining.

    "very disappointing, very repetitive."
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who will not listen to it continuously


    What will your next listen be?

    Not sure yet


    Any additional comments?

    Just a really poor repetive story. Sections of the text were repeated word for word in consecutive chapters

    Story
    "An immersive journey in the most beautiful places"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. It reads (or "listens" in this case) very easily, and you feel like you are inside the book from page one. Even though a lot of things are shrouded in mystery right up untill the end


    What did you like best about this story?

    Robert Langdon, the main character, will be travelling to many different places. The awesome thing about this book is that these places actually exist, and Robert being a professor of History at Harvard will tell you so many interesting things about various buildings, paintings even cities. When you actually travel to these places, you can relisten the book even just for the great descriptions of art. This combined with a thrilling and twisting plot gives you an awesome listen.


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

    n.a.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "The darkness ahead for humanity"

    Story
    "Outstanding"
    What made the experience of listening to Inferno: A Novel the most enjoyable?

    A wonderful insight into Florence, after hearing this book I would love to visit Florence, it is almost like q tourist guide.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Inferno: A Novel?

    It is a bit like Bourne Identity where the main character has to back trace his steps to find out what has previously happened.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The moment where Prof. Langdon realizes who the thief is.


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

    Yes, most definitely just didn't have the opportunity

    loves this audio book, story is so engaging, couldn't stop listening....


    What about Paul Michael’s performance did you like?

    really good to listen to, and he throws in the odd accent or ladies voice which is fun...

    Story
    "Disappointingly unreal"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, I was disappointed with the loss of reality, Dan Brown seems to have lost it


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    yes, I must admit to Googling Dante's inferno , however the storyline lost interest when characters who were believed dead, suddenly appeared and admitted to being actors engaged solely for a performance to convince the hero they had been shot ???


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    the facts , historical and religious as usual are well documented , however the story was too unbelievable


    Could you see Inferno being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

    The Narration was quite good


    Any additional comments?

    I won't buy the next Dan Brown solely on His name , as I have in the past. This storyline was too far from reality

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

    Intrigue, mystery, fascinating


    What did you like best about this story?

    Pure Dan Brown. Lve the story, the historical facts and how they can be intertwined so artistically.


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

    I couldn't wait to get back ton it every time I put it down and felt very sorry when it was over.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like dan Brown, you'll love this new addition to his latest novels.
