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.

I like this book and it's content. The narrator though puts me to sleep. I listen to these at work and I can't go to sleep when I am working! I haven't finished it yet for that reason.
I think it would be a better read than listen.
I like history and biography, novels too. I do have a thing for zombie books as well. I need crappy thrillers now and then.
Dan Brown writes some really trite sentences, so if you don't mind that, go ahead and listen. Actually, listen to Paul Michael is better than reading. Of course, a person reads Dan Brown for the historical oddities and tidbits. At least I do, and there is enough in here to keep one's interest. I like to that the repercussions of this so-called terrorist attack or not completely ignored or undone at the end of the novel. If you've read it, you'll know what I mean. Dan Brown sticks to his guns there.
So this book is kind of fun if you keep your expectations restrained.
Yes - His books, while a bit trite, are entertaining.
Predictable...but still fulfilling.
The inevitable Dan Brown plot twist in the middle.
If someone else was paying and there were drinks involved.
This book provided a fun distraction for me while I was packing my apartment. Sometimes I just want to be entertained! Inferno did the trick.
I like Paul Michael`s way of reading the book, and off course: The book itself
The tempo. I figured out some of the "surprises" and I loved that. I also liked the many references to Dante`s inferno and actually wanted to read it afterwards. I was also interested in the idea: What if someone really wants to "kill" people because we become so many people on earth?
The end when they arrive in turkey

The story hooks you from the very beginning.
DaVinchi Code - You cannot turn this audio book off.
Yes, you will want to put off conference calls and meetings to finish the audio book.
You know you really want to buy this audio book.
A dreamer who loves the adventures hidden in every story!!
Though this is a work of fiction there are aspects of this book that have given me quite a bit to think about. Definitely one of Dan Brown's better works. Angels and Demons still holds the top spot for me but this is a close second. Fast paced from the first page to the last it was an enjoyable read.
I would like to see something from Dan Brown that moves away from Robert Langdon.
Nothing truly peaked my interests with this book. I am a big Dan Brown fan, and have read all his books, but I'm just getting bored with the same story played out in a different way.
No. Move away from Robert Langdon and write something different.
Felt bored with this book. First time ever for a Dan Brown novel.
Tell us about yourself!
This book is 90% history lesson, 5% running in circles and 5% story. One review had said it perfectly - Dan went through a lot of trouble to describe everything to the last detail! I like the history, but not to much where it takes over the book. He wrote a book just to write a book
It was the first I listened to, and it was awesome.
Paul Michael's incredible diction makes him very easy to listen to, even for listeners who English is not their first language. His control of tempo, voice, pitch, and consistency throughout his other narrated books make him a favorite reader for me.
Yes! I had to force myself to turn off the audiobook as I arrived to work...
Awesome experience, highly recommend it!
