    "It does make one think"
    Where does Inferno rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I liked the book, partly because it tweaks on a feeling I have been having for a while. It's a little shrill, but thought provoking.

    "Meh"
    Any additional comments?

    Part One: A long chase scene during which time the author brings out the details he meticulously researched and writes himself into a corner.
    Part Two: Bobby Ewing steps out of the shower.
    Part Three: Forced march to a predictable end.

    Story
    "Average thriller with "who-done-it""
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This book is an average thriller sprinkled with "who-done-it" and "look over here too get another clue". Main character development is insufficient so the readers will not have any emotional connection thus, the story line seems like a typical find clue, decode clue, leading to a real climatic ending, which never really surfaces in inferno. At the end it’s just bit to verbose on the monolithic descriptions and very light on the characters sub-plot and development. Still is a good listen/read and I give is a “C” to a C+.


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

    the WHO (world health organization) lack of political power


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

    his Tone and tempo


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

    NO!!!


    Any additional comments?

    it will be a long time before I read another Dan Brown book.

    Where does Inferno rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This story dragged on. Did help with the original Inferno.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Don't belabor the same information.

    Story
    "Hire a ghost, Mr. Brown"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Mr. Brown has a good imagination. He should hire a ghost writer to express that imagination.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I don't know yet, but it will not be narrated by Mr. Michael.


    What didn’t you like about Paul Michael’s performance?

    Mr. Michael's camp approach to mystery narration might be better used for a Sam Spade novel. For a modern novel, the breathlessness is a bit much. Further, the female protagonist is supposed to be an off-the-charts brilliant prodigy. Mr. Michael renders her a breathless bimbo.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment.
