    Story
    "Entertaining Listen"
    If you could sum up Inferno in three words, what would they be?

    Does not disappoint


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    By starting in the middle of the story and then feeding back story through having the main character having lost his memory is not a new concept, but works very well indeed in this case.


    What about Paul Michael’s performance did you like?

    Yes, I thought the performer was just right for the roll.


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

    No, not that kind of book.


    Any additional comments?

    The author sure does like his dramatic endings. Antimatter annihilation in the Vatican, Jesus's descendent, long lost wisdom uncovered and now this... I little excessive perhaps, but somehow it works in the story and is a perfectly believable resolution.

    I was delighted to have been completely caught off guard by the unexpected twist and as usual with Dan Brown we were taken on a delightful history tour through fascinating places.

    Overall if you like the character of Robert Langdon, you will like this book.

    Story
    "Another Dan Brown Book"
    Where does Inferno rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Paul Michael is a great narrator however, if you are sleepy, his voice is very soothing and it will put you to sleep. I enjoyed this book overall.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The scenery was very vivid, almost as if you are taking a trip to Europe. The details of ancient buildings and art is described very well.


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

    Pronunciations that may be hard to read.


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

    No, its much to long and I needed time to digest the imagery portrayed.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall it is written in a very Dan Brown style, lots of historic mystery intertwined with drama. I enjoyed this book more than the last.

    "Thought-provoking"

    As anticipated, this was an enjoyable and educational romp through art and architecture -- armchair travel among the best. What was unexpected was for it to be one of the most thought-provoking books I've come across in a long time.

    "A little too scary!"
    If you could sum up Inferno in three words, what would they be?

    This was a great story and the topic was extremely scary to sit and think about.


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

    This topic was scary to say the least!

    "Scarey!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Inferno to be better than the print version?

    The narration was delightful and I don't have time to just sit and read.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Inferno?

    When I figured out exactly where this plot was taking us. It was like an epiphany.


    Which character – as performed by Paul Michael – was your favorite?

    I loved them all! Paul Michael did an outstanding job. I thought I was really listening to different people and that's important on audio books.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    One senario can easily turn into another. Be aware!


    Any additional comments?

    I always enjoy Dan Brown's books, but this one truly scared me. I work in the environment field so I know how easily this could happen!

    "Great story with an unbelievable ending. REALLY!"

    Great story, but a guy that falls 50,000 feet from a helicopter lives? Really? The ending ruined it for me.

    Story
    "Avoid this in audio. I regretted this one."
    What would have made Inferno better?

    The story takes up less than a third of the writing. There was way, way, WAY too much architectural description, historical trivia and useless drivel for my taste. If I had been reading, I could have skipped it, but thats not easily possible in audio.

    I can't be certain if my annoyance at the drivel described above made me more sensitive, or not, but I found some of the internal dialog annoying. When characters talked to themselves, and it seemed to happen quite a bit, it seldom seemed relevant. If fact, redundant. Annoying.


    Has Inferno turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, but perhaps I'll approach Brown with more caution.


    Did Paul Michael do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    The reader was quite satisfactory. I had no difficulty with the narration.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The theme of the book, overpopulation, and some of the ideas presented, were interesting. I found myself somewhat interested in wanting to read Dante's Divine Comedy, even though I heard too much about it in the book.
