    "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 I love the historical references Dan Brown used in this book as he did in the Da Vinci Code.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.

    Story
    "Much Improved Over Brown's Third Volume"
    What did you love best about Inferno?

    The mix of science and art history as well as Italian scenes was great.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Robert Langdon was well done.


    What about Paul Michael’s performance did you like?

    The narrator enjoyed reading the story and understood it well, obvious from his voice intonations.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall an excellent book, however it is not outstanding. The ending is a deviation from Brown's normal endings. Wondering if this is the last volume in Langdon series now...cuz he paint himself into corner. I do appreciate that Mr. Brown did not lecture on religion and religous beliefs' as he did in the previous installment.

    Story
    "Dante's Code: crack it--or ELSE!"

    If you like continually not knowing what is going to happen next, and discovering the next harrowing clue and dangerous predicament, then this classic Dan Brown scavenger hunt with cataclysmic implications is for you.

    Constructed around the symbology of Dante's Inferno, this is a fast action adventure through fascinating historical cities by the familiar protagonist Robert Langdon, and a freaky-smart attractive leading lady (Angelina Jolie?)

    It gets a little slow around the end of the first third of the book, then takes off again.

    Nothing is ever what you expect.

    This is the definition of suspense.

    "Just Ok"

    I was definitely disappointed with this latest Dan Brown book- my mind wandered often throughout the book. The 2nd half of the book picked up slightly in pace with a couple of twists that piqued my interest enough to see it through to the end.

    Story
    "Transhumanism is real"
    What did you like about this audiobook?

    I liked that the narrator didn't go too fast. I also liked how the narrator tried to do different voices for the different characters.


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

    Interesting topic! I researched online while "reading".


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

    Yes. Dan Brown gives lots of details.


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

    Nothing. I thought it was good.

    Story
    "A really good history of Italy"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Inferno to be better than the print version?

    Did not read the print version, so I cannot compare


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

    The plot at times became very tedious, seemed to bog down.


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

    Robert Langdon


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Made me think about the true premise of the book.


    Any additional comments?

    Spent way to much time giving very detailed descriptions of places and things, move it along. I found the ending to be slightly confusing with no real conclusion.

    Would you try another book from Dan Brown and/or Paul Michael?

    Paul Michael was an excellent reader; easy to listen to...
    I have read several Dan Brown books.


    Has Inferno turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yep, a bit too far fetched...


    Did Paul Michael do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    yes - he did


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Inferno?

    seveeral
