    "Another fantastic hit!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would absolutely recommend this book to my friends and family. It is enlightening, eye opening and highly entertaining!


    What other book might you compare Inferno: A Novel to and why?

    I've loved all of the Dan Brown boooks I've read so far, such as Deception Point, Angels and Demons, the Lost Symbol and of course the Davinci Code


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

    I really enjoy Paul Michael's performances as well. He knows exactly how to represent the characters, male and female!


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

    Oh yes, it was very difficult to pull away from this book. I listened in the car to/from work and at night before bedtime.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved it! Ready for the next Dan Brown book!

    Story
    "Interesting but lots of chase scenes."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Fewer chase scenes and more serious interactions/better character development. I did not identify with any characters at all.


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

    Change the tone/story to one that is more serious and believable. Help the reader to respect all the information.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    For me the plot was obscure. There was a great deal of activity, it was not especially interesting.


    Do you think Inferno: A Novel needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    It was written to be made into a fast-paced movie. No, I would not look forward to more of this.


    Any additional comments?

    Interesting historical information but too muddled in all the running and chasing around

    Any additional comments?

    The end is a bit far fetched

    "Illusions"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Inferno: A Novel to be better than the print version?

    The audio had the advantage over print because the characters can come to life with different voices.


    What other book might you compare Inferno: A Novel to and why?

    The Stand by Stephen King. Both deal with good and evil. Inferno teases out the distinction can be blurred.


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

    When good men do nothing.

    "Somewhat predictable, still enjoyable"

    Dan Brown's works have become largely formulaic and repetitive, featuring many similar plot devices and characters, but I find that I can still enjoy them. For someone with a casual interest in art and history, the well-researched background information present in Inferno is also welcome. People interested in science, however, will have to exercise extreme patience with some of the happenings in this book and Browns' others. Paul Michael provides a compelling, clear presentation.

    "Even a less than perfect novel is still awesome"

    I'm such a fan of Dan Brown. I feel privileged for the opportunity to read, learn and experience his books. I will admit that I didn't initially get completely absorbed in Inferno as I did in his other novels, but I'm still so grateful to have had the opportunity to listen to it. I think the reason is that his first novels were so magnificent that even he would have a hard time surpassing them. But I loved every part of this book. I learned so much about Florence, Italy and Dante that I have renewed interest in learning more. Brown does such an amazing job merging reality and history into fiction that you always wonder, "could this happen?" I think it could and it scares the heck out of me.

    Even though it took me a month to get through this novel, I'm so glad I went against many reviews and got it. I will be thinking about the story for many years to come. And I can't wait for the next Dan Brown novel.

    "Story is good. Narrator puts me to sleep!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I like this book and it's content. The narrator though puts me to sleep. I listen to these at work and I can't go to sleep when I am working! I haven't finished it yet for that reason.


    Was Inferno: A Novel worth the listening time?

    I think it would be a better read than listen.

    I like history and biography, novels too. I do have a thing for zombie books as well. I need crappy thrillers now and then.

    Story
    "Better than Angels and Demons"

    Dan Brown writes some really trite sentences, so if you don't mind that, go ahead and listen. Actually, listen to Paul Michael is better than reading. Of course, a person reads Dan Brown for the historical oddities and tidbits. At least I do, and there is enough in here to keep one's interest. I like to that the repercussions of this so-called terrorist attack or not completely ignored or undone at the end of the novel. If you've read it, you'll know what I mean. Dan Brown sticks to his guns there.

    So this book is kind of fun if you keep your expectations restrained.

    "Same good Dan Brown"

    If you did like the other adventures from Robert Langdon, you will like this one. Same formula with some extra pepper.

    "Good for listening while doing something else."
    Would you try another book from Dan Brown and/or Paul Michael?

    Yes - His books, while a bit trite, are entertaining.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Predictable...but still fulfilling.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The inevitable Dan Brown plot twist in the middle.


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

    If someone else was paying and there were drinks involved.


    Any additional comments?

    This book provided a fun distraction for me while I was packing my apartment. Sometimes I just want to be entertained! Inferno did the trick.
