Publisher's Summary

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.

Please note: This audiobook will be released on Tuesday, May 14, at 3:00 am Eastern Daylight Time.

    Story
    "Dan Brown is an excellent writer"
    If you could sum up Inferno in three words, what would they be?

    Exciting. Informative. Calculated.


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

    The plot was no different than any other Robert Langdon series. However, it was well written, well researched, and moved quickly.


    What about Paul Michael’s performance did you like?

    Paul Michael clearly distinguishes the characters in the book from one another. It is easy to follow along, and characters are never "dropped."


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No

    "Just what you'd expect"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    If you liked the other Dan Brown books, you'll be fine. Same formula. Pretty good.

    "Fascinating story"
    What made the experience of listening to Inferno the most enjoyable?

    The story is gripping and suspenseful. It takes you through a number of Europe's prime tourism spots (Florence, Venice, Istanbul). Technically, this novel is much better done than most other Dan Brown works.


    What aspect of Paul Michael’s performance would you have changed?

    According to the story, Bertrand Zobrist and Elizabeth Sinskey are Swiss (so they would either speak German, French or Italian). Yet, the way Paul Michael vocalizes them gives them a Slavic accent. That is weird.

    Story
    "Interesting story... Too much description"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Inferno to be better than the print version?

    Yes, the audio version to better to the print one because it allows my hands to be free and I can carry it anywhere, listen to it everywhere.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The plot is the best thing about the story


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Langdon runs away from the men clad in black after reaching Sienna's apartment


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

    All hell broke loose


    Any additional comments?

    So much description in the story loses the reader. Also, I didn't like the part of the story where everything is revealed about the identity of each character and their role in the deception that was playing around Langdon. It was just too much.

    Story
    "Fourth and hopefully not the last."
    What did you love best about Inferno?

    The amnesia which was not caused by an accident.


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

    Yes. Your friends are your enemies and your enemies are your friends.


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

    The provost. Cold hearted businessman but realizes there are limits to everything.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The plagues reality.


    Any additional comments?

    Overpopulation is a real problem. Zorbrist's solution was wrong but he felt he was saving humanity.

    "Langdon is still a good teacher, but predictable."
    What did you like best about Inferno? What did you like least?

    Lots of historical data and information, it's a joy to read and learn all of this new things.


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

    Since all four books have kinda of the same plot, you can predict what is going to happen.


    Did Inferno inspire you to do anything?

    Research more about the historical facts presented in the book.

    Story
    "I just could not put it down"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Inferno to be better than the print version?

    Spent the entire weekend listening to this book (almost non-stop). Driving, shopping, cleaning up at home... You can't do that with a print version.


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

    I did, and almost happened... 17 hr book and 35 hrs over the weekend


    Any additional comments?

    I had the fortune of visiting these places in Europe in the past two years so it felt so very real. I do really hope they make the movie. Of course I imagined Tom Hanks playing Robert Langdon. Paul Michael sounded just like him in my head..
    Please Ron Howard, make it into a movie, it would make an mazing trilogy

    "Hard to stop listening once you begin."
    Where does Inferno rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book easily goes to the top of the list of audio books i have listened to so far.


    Have you listened to any of Paul Michael’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The narrator's voice inflexions were quite good and he brings out Langdon's wry humor very well.
