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.

If you like his previous books, it's definitely worth the listen
Just like all the rest of his books. Formulaic, entertaining and fun though
Loved the descriptions of the buildings
I enjoyed this Audiobook very much. The story was amazing and very exciting. It also gave a lot to think about afterwards. It is an interesting problem.
Maybe, I have read all of Dan Brown's books and this has the same page turning rhythm as the others. I enjoyed it, but a one time read.
Yes, as always Dan Brown produced another page turner.
He provides a tone to the characters. If I had just read the book I may had interpreted the personality of the characters differently.
It was like all his others.
If you are a Dan Brown fan, it is well worth the time.
Crafting allegory, art and ancient history, Dan Brown offers his devoted readers the famed protagonist Robert Langdon. Caught in a web of intrigue, danger and confusion, Langdon traverses some of the most beautiful Italian landmarks to solve a mystery centuries in the making before it's too late.
I really enjoyed the book. Some of the reviews were not very favorable. I learned a lot about Dante's Inferno that I never knew. I would listen to it again.
