Publisher's Summary

Now a Major Motion Picture

With the publication of his groundbreaking novels The Da Vinci Code, The Lost Symbol, and Angels & Demons, Dan Brown has become an international best-selling sensation, seamlessly fusing codes, symbols, art, and history into riveting thrillers that have captivated hundreds of millions of fans around the world. Now Dan Brown takes listeners deep into the heart of Italy, guiding them through a landscape that inspired one of history's most ominous literary classics.

"The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis."

Harvard professor of symbology Robert Langdon awakens in a hospital in the middle of the night. Disoriented and suffering from a head wound, he recalls nothing of the last 36 hours, including how he got there...or the origin of the macabre object that his doctors discover hidden in his belongings.

Langdon's world soon erupts into chaos, and he finds himself on the run in Florence with a stoic young woman, Sienna Brooks, whose clever maneuvering saves his life. Langdon quickly realizes that he is in possession of a series of disturbing codes created by a brilliant scientist - a genius whose obsession with the end of the world is matched only by his passion for one of the most influential masterpieces ever written: Dante Alighieri's dark epic poem The Inferno.

Racing through such timeless locations as the Palazzo Vecchio, the Boboli Gardens, and the Duomo, Langdon and Brooks discover a network of hidden passageways and ancient secrets as well as a terrifying new scientific paradigm that will be used either to vastly improve the quality of life on earth...or to devastate it.

In his most riveting and thought-provoking novel to date, Dan Brown has raised the bar yet again. Inferno is a sumptuously entertaining listen - a novel that will captivate listeners with the beauty of classical Italian art, history, and literature while also posing provocative questions about the role of cutting-edge science in our future.

    "Fake Reviews, Use Fakespot"

    Okay, I'm about as sick of fake reviews as I can be. I had a number of things to say about this book but for kicks, I put the product URL from Amazon through Fakespot. In case you were wondering, Fakespot is a way to tell how authentic reviews are. So I do and the book receives a fake review rating of a B which isn't great. If you click at the bottom of the page, you can actually see reviews that have been flagged. For instance, user "Jon E Angelone" has uploaded tons of 5 star reviews on December 9th. I'm so sick of this it is disgusting. I would guess that sooner or later, this will result in a class action lawsuit. I don't know if that is a product of Amazon or a product of other nefarious companies. By the way, Fakespot also shows a full report that weeds out the fake reviews. It states that the book should actually have received a 3 out of 5 star rating if you click the "Full Trustwerty Report." Like I said, total BS. Anyway, here is my review. Dan Brown is a lousy writer. He is a great teacher of art history but a terrible writer. Dude wrote one interesting story which was actually just a re-write of Angels and Demons. Now he is pouring out crap. He comes up with a good premise for a story but his writing and dialogue are terrible. Jesus H, Langdon starts thinking about sunscreen while looking at a faded mask? Then, when the story breaks down, Brown will just load up on the exposition via remembering a classroom lecture. WTF Dan? Anyway, I'm done with Brown. Also, the reason why the Silver Haired Woman was the way she was? Give me a break. Lousy book, fake reviews. I hope Dan Brown catches a plague.

    "This should be the end"

    This is my 4th book. It is time to let it rest. The professor can't get any better know or more handsome. This is an art lesson that got more interesting than the story. Narration was ok, but just.
    The characters were lost in the effort of telling the story. Everything drug on and on, and finally wrapped up in such a quick package it almost required an epilogue or apology to finish it. I was more than disappointed. Listened till the end. Will return it for my credit.
    I just loved The Da Vinci Code , Angels And Demons was good, to me. But this one is long and has no adventure.

    "New Dan Brown story"

    It is unfortunate that Dan Brown writes his books as if it is the next movie so why bother with one's imagination. Also saw the movie and it's a wonder Tom Hanks can say his lines with a straight face. It appears the book was written just as an opportunity to make money for the writer, producer and actors but not much writing, acting, or anything else. An interesting tour of Dante and Italy but not much else in the way of a story....so sad. Will have to return to this book!

    "Twists and Turns Abound"

    Inferno is another masterpiece by Dan Brown. his descriptions as you go through the book make you feel like you have been there before, met the characters before. The storyline was epic, it was intense and you never knew what was coming next.

    Story
    "Wake up at the end....you'll miss it."

    I usually don't criticize an author's work. However, it was rather clear that we mortals were meant to get lectured here; I was just not clear whether it was supposed to be a lecture on art, over-population or political correctness.

    The art portion seemed to be the obvious choice here at first. I am sure that if a person knew all of the art or had toured the areas mentioned, this might be fascinating! I really tried to focus on it, I did. Instead, I found my attention wandering freely and then getting frustrated when I had missed an exciting moment in between. I did a lot of rewinding.

    Then, during the last 3 hours of the book, all of a sudden all of the excitement happens. It would have been interesting with the different plot twists and such, except that the author seems very determined to drive home every point about over-population already made--again and again.

    Furthermore, he insists that the evil villain in the book must be understood, leaving the reader possibly feeling a bit bewildered and certainly alienated. Wait, so we are supposed to understand that the villain's way is right, and everyone magically agrees with him in the end??? To complete this lecture (which hopefully has transformed our beliefs by the end of the book), the author even thoughtfully includes different groups that deliberate about over-population (presumably should we wish to join). This is his prerogative, but if I had wanted to attend a lecture on either art or world population, I would have done so. I was hoping to just to enjoy a good mystery, not be preached at.

    The only reason I gave 3 stars instead of 2 was because the plot twists were interesting, even if a bit far-fetched. Other than that, I was mostly frustrated by this book, not enlightened or stimulated.

    "missing something"

    to start off. dan brown is one of my favorite authors. And the Robert Langdon series one of the best. This book had all of the great and amazing elements that his others did. Only, i can't help but feel i am missing something at the end. While the ending had a great recap of the mysteries of the book. i was left unfullfilled with curiosity of what happened right when it ended. another chapter or two is all I feel is missing. even though i understand why it was left open.
