    "Probably the last Dan Brown I'll 'read'"
    Any additional comments?

    This book kept me entertained, sometimes thrilled. As with much of Brown, I love the travel diary-like pictures he paints (now I have a greater appreciation for Florence). But that's not what the books about. My 3rd DB, it feels formulaic. All of our characters have too many unrealistic close calls.

    "Love the historical aspect!"

    Excellent, didn't want to put it down. Live the historical references! Ending was a bit long but in the end it was worth it.

    "condescending to readers"

    while I enjoy hearing about architecture and ancient history, I do not like 15 minutes to describe every little detail. takes forever to make a point. of all of his books this is the worst

    "Couldn't get through it"

    I am going to return this book. It just isn't interesting. Same old tired formula. Nothing new here. Found my mind wandering...it quickly became a chore.

    "Picturesque, exciting, but repetitive."

    Dan Brown does a wonderful job of taking us to the most beautiful parts of Europe and intertwining descriptions of important works of art into the plot. From time to time he revisits plot elements through flashbacks or differing perspectives on a single event that seemed a bit superfluous. Thoroughly enjoyed another clue solving adventure, though!

    "Made me want to read Dante's Inferno!"
    Would you listen to Inferno: A Novel again? Why?

    Yes. Many reasons: art history, Italy tourism, great narration, Italian phrases.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Inferno: A Novel?

    Realizing who FS2080 is.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene in the Hall of the Five Hundred.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I have a copy of Dante's Divine Comedy in Italian, but haven't read it. This book made me want to try again.


    Any additional comments?

    Like Dan's previous books, I thought it's a fantastic and thought-provoking story. Paul's Italian pronunciation is quite good, which I'm picky about b/c I speak it. My only crit would be a bit more emphasis and animation on the Italian phrases would make them sound more authentic.
