Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Classic Robert Langdon"

    Robert Langdon returns to save the day again. All of the excitement and intrigue you're used to from Dan Brown in a thrilling performance. Only downside is the difficulty of picturing real art and architecture without seeing it.

    "Different from the film, not sure which I prefer"

    It's good. Sufficiently different from the film starring Tom Hanks. The challenge is that Hanks is so good, that you can see him has Langdon. His co-star in the film, Ms. Jones is mostly cardboard, so the character differences are not really disturbing. The book is a bit long, and could use more aggressive editing, but the story moves along. Some have characterized this as a series of tourist guides. I didn't get that, and I think it's worth listening to. Paul Michael is a very good reader.

    "A little too much"

    Did not enjoy this book as much. There was just to much detail about names and places. It just seemed to bog the whole story down. Paul Brown is a great writer but this one moved to slow for me.

    "Review"

    Alot of the story is a nice history lesson. Some of it was hard to get thru because of that. With that said it fit well into the series.

    "Fake Reviews, Use Fakespot"

    Okay, I'm about as sick of fake reviews as I can be. I had a number of things to say about this book but for kicks, I put the product URL from Amazon through Fakespot. In case you were wondering, Fakespot is a way to tell how authentic reviews are. So I do and the book receives a fake review rating of a B which isn't great. If you click at the bottom of the page, you can actually see reviews that have been flagged. For instance, user "Jon E Angelone" has uploaded tons of 5 star reviews on December 9th. I'm so sick of this it is disgusting. I would guess that sooner or later, this will result in a class action lawsuit. I don't know if that is a product of Amazon or a product of other nefarious companies. By the way, Fakespot also shows a full report that weeds out the fake reviews. It states that the book should actually have received a 3 out of 5 star rating if you click the "Full Trustwerty Report." Like I said, total BS. Anyway, here is my review. Dan Brown is a lousy writer. He is a great teacher of art history but a terrible writer. Dude wrote one interesting story which was actually just a re-write of Angels and Demons. Now he is pouring out crap. He comes up with a good premise for a story but his writing and dialogue are terrible. Jesus H, Langdon starts thinking about sunscreen while looking at a faded mask? Then, when the story breaks down, Brown will just load up on the exposition via remembering a classroom lecture. WTF Dan? Anyway, I'm done with Brown. Also, the reason why the Silver Haired Woman was the way she was? Give me a break. Lousy book, fake reviews. I hope Dan Brown catches a plague.

    "This should be the end"

    This is my 4th book. It is time to let it rest. The professor can't get any better know or more handsome. This is an art lesson that got more interesting than the story. Narration was ok, but just.
    The characters were lost in the effort of telling the story. Everything drug on and on, and finally wrapped up in such a quick package it almost required an epilogue or apology to finish it. I was more than disappointed. Listened till the end. Will return it for my credit.
    I just loved The Da Vinci Code , Angels And Demons was good, to me. But this one is long and has no adventure.
