    Story
    "Story is good. Narrator puts me to sleep!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    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.


    Was Inferno: A Novel worth the listening time?

    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.

    Story
    "Better than Angels and Demons"

    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.

    "Same good Dan Brown"

    If you did like the other adventures from Robert Langdon, you will like this one. Same formula with some extra pepper.

    Story
    "Good for listening while doing something else."
    Would you try another book from Dan Brown and/or Paul Michael?

    Yes - His books, while a bit trite, are entertaining.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Predictable...but still fulfilling.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The inevitable Dan Brown plot twist in the middle.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    If someone else was paying and there were drinks involved.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "True inferno"
    What made the experience of listening to Inferno the most enjoyable?

    I like Paul Michael`s way of reading the book, and off course: The book itself


    What did you like best about this story?

    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?


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The end when they arrive in turkey

    Story
    "Made me think!"

    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.

    Story
    "Nothing new here, Same Dan Brown as always."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would like to see something from Dan Brown that moves away from Robert Langdon.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    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.


    Do you think Inferno needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No. Move away from Robert Langdon and write something different.


    Any additional comments?

    Felt bored with this book. First time ever for a Dan Brown novel.

    Story
    "Blaaaah"

    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

    Story
    "This book got me hooked on Audiobooks!"
    Where does Inferno rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It was the first I listened to, and it was awesome.


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

    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.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! I had to force myself to turn off the audiobook as I arrived to work...


    Any additional comments?

    Awesome experience, highly recommend it!
