    "Not as good as I had hoped"
    What disappointed you about Inferno?

    I thoroughly enjoy Dan Brown books until now. It wasn't all bad, but it felt too predictable.

    "I LOVE this book!"
    If you could sum up Inferno in three words, what would they be?

    3 words? I loved it!!,

    I finished listening to this book and have now restarted! The ending threw me completely and I HAD TO START OVER, knowing how it ends, to see if it makes sense and IT DOES!This is his best book so far. Angels and Deamons comes a close second but this one is SO WORTH IT!!!

    Story
    "Run, art description, Run, more history, Run...."
    What did you like best about Inferno? What did you like least?

    The art history was great.
    The story was very weak.


    What could Dan Brown have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Change his formula: all his books are the same.


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

    No character was my favorite.


    Could you see Inferno being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Tom Hanks, and someone else who I couldn't care less about.


    Any additional comments?

    No more Dan Brown books for me.

    Story
    "Scooby, Scooby Doo!!!!"
    What did you like best about Inferno? What did you like least?

    Seriously, the plot was way too "Scooby Doo" for me, and the narrative could be excruciatingly repetitive. The author goes over and over with the same information, and it was just all too cheesy and ridiculous for me. No thanks.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Dan Brown? Why or why not?

    No


    What three words best describe Paul Michael’s performance?

    Good job with the content, but again slightly cheesy.


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

    No

    "Well, I didn't hate it....."

    I bought it. I didn't hate it. I finished it. This book bored me at times but didn't bore me enough to stop listening to it. I think that if I had it to do over I would have saved my credit.

    "Excellent on all counts. Best Dan Brown yet."
    What made the experience of listening to Inferno the most enjoyable?

    Great characters, holds interest, good plot.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All the characters were admirable. Paul Michael made each character individual and believable.


    What about Paul Michael’s performance did you like?

    He is an excellent narrator with a particularly expressive talent.


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

    Would if I could. I listen in my car and was always eager to get back to it.


    Any additional comments?

    All in all, a very good read. I have even started on Dante's Divine Comedy.

    "One of my favorites!"
    What did you like about this audiobook?

    I love Dan browns books because its like a history lesson with an amazing story entwined together.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    I want to know more about the plagues that gripped the world that are not talked about in modern society.


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    Love his writing, you learn so much without feeling like you are and you don't feel dumb at any point.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    Nothing

    "Inspiring and just a great story!"

    Overall, this is a great story, fast-paced, and exciting - like the Da Vinci Code. This one makes you want to read/know more about Dante Alighieri and his master piece, The Divine Comedy. I love the historical references Dan Brown used in this book as he did in the Da Vinci Code. Because his descriptions were so great, I found myself looking up these places online just to see how spectacular they really were. Now I want to go to Italy and Turkey! Narration was great as well. This book kept me hooked from beginning to end.

    "Just awful"

    Worst book I've ever read. This book started out ok but quickly went down hill. Incorrectly disappointing and bleak.
