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.

Not Brown's best. There is a twist that seemed a bit cheap. I remember feeling "this better be good" and in the end I think the author made it plausible if not wholly satisfying.
My favorite part is the protagonist is someone who can be cheered for and one I can identify with in certain strengths. Loved it.
The narrator, Paul Michael, was fabulous. Also, I always enjoy the twists and turns in Dan Brown's books.
Robert Langdon, of course. Such a beautifully deep voice was created by the narrator.
No. But I hope to again.
I have read all of Dan Brown's books with The DaVinci Code and Deception Point being my favorites, and this one coming in third. I appreciate the voluminous research that goes into all his books and often find myself watching travel videos to visualize the many cities portrayed. It makes me feel like I'm in the story with the characters. The ending to this story was completely unexpected. I would love to see a future book making reference to this one and revealing details of the long term outcome.This is the first Dan Brown audiobook I have listened to and the narrator was extraordinary. What amazing talent to create so many voices! Kudos to Mr. Brown and Mr. Micheal!
I enjoyed this book. As much as the first Dan Brown Novel in this series.
Clues and all.
You felt like you were there in the story watching it unfold.
The narrator did a wonderful job - telling the story , keeping the characters clear and not over acting!
I would listen again.
Love this story the narrator is perfect for it. The way the story unfolds to the reader is different and engaging. I loved the real places and things he uses. I would look them up or listen to them well I "read". So I was very involved with it :-)
Dan Brown never disappoints. His stories are gripping right to the end with endless plot twists and a vocabulary and flow that keeps you continuing. The narrator is fantastic and reads as if you were listening to a movie without looking at the television.
"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
