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.

    "Keeps your attention"
    What did you love best about Inferno?

    Narration was as phenomenal as the gripping suspense.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Without revealing anything the villain had many cynical facets.


    What does Paul Michael bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The different personalities and the effect of the performance.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    An historically accurate adventure.


    Any additional comments?

    Great Audiobook.

    "Predictable Dan Brown"
    Where does Inferno rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The performance is great!


    What could Dan Brown have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Dan Brown is not a great writer. He's just OK. He created an interesting (albeit flat) character with an interesting background. Unfortunately he always has to take it too far with the end-of-the-world stuff in his stories. Too dramatic and unbelievable. It does make it enjoyable. Pure ear candy.


    Which character – as performed by Paul Michael – was your favorite?

    Sienna. I'm always amazed at how well some performers pull off opposite sex characters.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "Robert Langdon saves the world. Again."


    Any additional comments?

    I'm not all the way through, but this is a typical Dan Brown book. Fun, light, summer read/listen. Brown's writing style works for audio, because if you miss something you can be sure someone in the story will recap it for you pretty soon. Great book to listen to during your daily commute.

    I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.

    "A novel"

    This novel by Dan Brown is really thought provoking. The first thing to remember is that this is fiction even though the characters deal with real world issues in real world places.

    Paul Michael IS the voice of Robert Langdon. Exceptional work by Paul.

    Dan, thank you for entertaining me through commutes to work, waiting in line and during my knitting. I appreciate the different perspectives of the world and the problems our whole globe shares.

    Sometimes I can't get over how big government has grown and why I need a building inspector to review my chicken coop. Then I read a novel like this and want to let my small city know there are far bigger problems in the world. This novel is a good, intensive read that is so grasping it is very hard to put down your player. Sunday afternoon is not the time to start this novel, Monday morning still will come and work won't be happy when you call in tired and claiming you still have a few hours left of this book. :-)

    "Fantastic Book with a Wonderful Narrator!"

    I absolutely loved this book. My wife bought me the illustrated edition for Christmas a couple of years ago (Christmas before last) and I just got around to finally reading before last Christmas. Many things came up, including illness, and I just finished it today. I read the print version of the book while listening to the audiobook.

    The narrator is wonderful! It was never difficult to tell who was speaking during a dialogue scene. Even his female voices were quite distinguishable from each other. His pacing was just right for me; not too fast and not too slow.

    I have read all of the Robert Langdon series of books by Dan Brown, and this is easily his best one since the DaVinci Code, which I also have in audiobook.

    As the book opens Robert Langdon is in the hospital in Italy having been shot in the head. When he wakes up he finds that he cannot remember anything about the last couple of days. He meets Dr. Sienna Brookes when he wakes up, but barely has a chance to get his bearings and figure out where he is before a gunman enters the hospital and starts shooting up the place while gunning for Langdon. Sienna helps him escape the hospital, and this is where the adventure around Italy begins.

    This book should NOT be missed. There are so many twists and turns and Robert Langdon is never sure who to trust or when to trust them. Fans of Dan Brown will not be disappointed by Inferno. If you can, get the illustrated version which has tons of pictures of the places and objects that Robert and Sienna encounter along the way.

    "Just OK"

    A little bit disappointed compared to other books of Brown as Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons. Too many historic details without any meaning make the story tiring. The narration is good.

    Well-written, suspense!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Great follow up for the Robert Langdon series.


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

    No. This was the first Paul Michael's performance for me, and I will look for other books he has performed. Easy to listen to, and captivating narrative.

    "I liked it very much"

    The story plot is as usual a twisty idea from Dan Brown. This is my third book of his writing and i am liking it. My next is the lost symbol and it has very high benchmarks to meet. I have to say though that one of Dan Brown's key excellence is his care for details, and in an audio book format (for me) I cannot grasp such detailed image. Fortunately I have issues with long written detailed books in usual reading experience, and for this combo of reason I can only listen to Dan Brown and cannot read his books. This does not have any thing to do with the book and everything to do with my preference, i am sharing this so any one with same preference does not feel threatened by the obsessive details provided by the book, your mind will utilize what it can, and you will survive.

    I really liked the ending, it wasn't a cliche. The attention to detail and history makes all his books great.

    "Another great one!"

    Dan Brown is fabulous, and I love every story I've read of his. I only wish that I could see all the things he writes about as a read about them! Can someone develop a virtual audio book, please?! :)
