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.

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.
Robert Langdon never disappoints. And the escapades to save the world are enthralling again. And the sentiment at the end is particularly nice.
If you like his previous books, it's definitely worth the listen
Just like all the rest of his books. Formulaic, entertaining and fun though
Loved the descriptions of the buildings
I enjoyed this Audiobook very much. The story was amazing and very exciting. It also gave a lot to think about afterwards. It is an interesting problem.
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.
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 around confused. Really? Pacing is weird and draining.
"very disappointing, very repetitive."
Someone who will not listen to it continuously
Not sure yet
Just a really poor repetive story. Sections of the text were repeated word for word in consecutive chapters
"An immersive journey in the most beautiful places"
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
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.
"The darkness ahead for humanity"
A wonderful insight into Florence, after hearing this book I would love to visit Florence, it is almost like q tourist guide.
It is a bit like Bourne Identity where the main character has to back trace his steps to find out what has previously happened.
The moment where Prof. Langdon realizes who the thief is.
Yes, most definitely just didn't have the opportunity
loves this audio book, story is so engaging, couldn't stop listening....
really good to listen to, and he throws in the odd accent or ladies voice which is fun...
No, I was disappointed with the loss of reality, Dan Brown seems to have lost it
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 ???
the facts , historical and religious as usual are well documented , however the story was too unbelievable
The Narration was quite good
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"
Intrigue, mystery, fascinating
Pure Dan Brown. Lve the story, the historical facts and how they can be intertwined so artistically.
I couldn't wait to get back ton it every time I put it down and felt very sorry when it was over.
If you like dan Brown, you'll love this new addition to his latest novels.
"I loved it and can't wait for the movie :)"
Langdon once again made it all so historically interesting! I love facts written into novels!
Very De Vinci Code
