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.

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.
This book was well written, and kept my interest. Narration could have been a bit better but i enjoyed it.
Yes Dan Brown's books always have my interest.
Not a huge fan, but he did a good job.
Yes i listened to all of it in 2 days
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
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!
Audiobook narrator: mystery/detective, fantasy, romance, sassy humor, action/adventure
Yes. Many reasons: art history, Italy tourism, great narration, Italian phrases.
Realizing who FS2080 is.
The scene in the Hall of the Five Hundred.
I have a copy of Dante's Divine Comedy in Italian, but haven't read it. This book made me want to try again.
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.
Dan Brown wrote magnificent works, full of mystery and adventure. Each book captures the beginning of reader-listener to an end. This makes the masterpieces books.
Of course, because each chapter gives a information, but only on the ends is possible understand all of them.
I like a lot of Robert Langdom.
This book is one more masterpiece of Dan Brown.
