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.

    A good story with an essential message which humanity should listen to. Beautiful all the way, with a final essential twist of a very brave author.

    "I did enjoy the book."

    I enjoy enjoyed the book. However, I think The DaVinci Code was better. It seemed that the conclusion had to come together real quick.But all in all it was a good read.

    "Disappointing at every level"

    The end to this book cannot come soon enough. Unfortunately it is extremely long. This book's storyline is linear, predictable, lacks any kind of suspense and at the end of the story it leaves a question of why did I listen to this book. There was a total lack of suspense and at the end of the book it was impossible to have any kind of attachment or emotional bonding with any of the characters. Lots of clever and ingenious books out there to be read, this was definitely not one of them

    "Where is the excitement?"

    I have read the other Robert Langdon books and toward the end they usually start getting exciting and have you on the edge of your seat but this book did not have the same type of thrill. Everything had already happened so the end seemed like it abruptly ended and was promptly thrown together leaving the reader's high behind.

    "Gripping, compelling"

    Another Dan Brown thriller, full of twists & turns. I found myself gripping my car's steering wheel in anticipation & suspense, only to (sort of) breathe a sigh of relief. 'Sort of' because there was another suspenseful passage ahead.
    The narrator did a fantastic job of (foreign) accents and emoting of the characters' feelings.
    Sad I'm done with the book, but will look for other suspenseful & intriguing books narrated by the same person.
    Excellent & timely book!

    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

    "Great as a vacation-book"

    The story was fine, especially as a casual summer-read. But it doesn't quite stack up to the previous books, I feel. The narrator was good but not great. The story good but not great. With lots of cultural and city-descriptions, the suspense loses a bit of its urgency. But again, it's fine for a casual summer-read in the shadows of a parasol :-)

    I really enjoyed this book as others from Dan Brown. It was my first audiobook and I think because of Paul Michael it became a very good experience.

    Story
    "Classic Dan Brown (So get over it!)"
    Where does Inferno: A Novel rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I only gave Paul Michael's narration 4 stars, though I found the narration to be very very good - easy to follow and so on, however, I hoped he would've been the storyteller rather than just someone reading the story aloud (if you know what I mean). The whole experience was very enjoyable though, so no complains.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The storyline is CLASSIC Dan Brown so if you haven't liked he's previous novels you won't like this one either but if you enjoyed The Lost Symbol and/or Da Vinci Code you will fall in love with this one too. The history of art and architecture can go on and on and on and be extremely boring if you're not into it and also he's not known for a psychologically in-depth analysis of the characters so some of the characters can be a bit two dimensional - but that is just his style. The main story, however, was, hands down, his best yet. Not quite as many twists in the plot as his previous ones but still brilliant!!


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The ending! The ending wasn't quite what I expected, however, I'm glad about it because that would've been boring. The whole storyline is set in a way that makes you think that you know what's going to happen at the end but I assure you that nothing is as it seems.

    So if I haven't put you off - Go for it and enjoy!!!

    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"

    "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

    "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

    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.
