In his international blockbusters The Da Vinci Code, Angels & Demons, and The Lost Symbol, Dan Brown masterfully fused history, art, codes, and symbols. In this riveting new thriller, Brown returns to his element and has crafted his highest-stakes novel to date.
In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology, Robert Langdon, is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces: Dante’s Inferno.
Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante’s dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust...before the world is irrevocably altered.

Inferno's quality is superb and the narrator is very easy to listen too.
I find the entire book to be a memorable experience. It is a great ride, and keeps you in your cart for the whole ride. I could not put the book down.
Paul Michael does ever character very well. After the "Da Vinci Code" became a movie, I have Tom Hanks' voice ingrained into my head for Robert Langdon. But all his other voices are great. Very well pronounced and nails the accents!
I have to say I am particularly fond of the ending.
I did not like this book from the start. I stayed with it and read the whole book but it never got better. The reader is okay but the story is just silly. Not sure if there is really a plot and every twist is easily predicted. Written at a 12 year old level the book was very simplistic.
If I wanted to read a travel book I'd buy something by Michael Palin. I couldn't even finish this book because I couldn't give a damn about the plot. Dan Brown's writing has always been dumb, but at least exciting. Just watch a Youtube video about Florence and save yourself the trouble.
yes, I've read / listened to most of dan brown's books. I always find something to think on.
Geez what a far range in reviews.
When his previously popular books came out - the topic did not strike my fancy and I did not read them. I'd have to have lived under a rock to not get that book without reading about it, by now.
This book was very good. I sincerely enjoyed it. I was involved in the story, attracted to the characters and surprised at all the right parts. I enjoy the history and the art stories. I was able to fall in to this book, as if this was his first, in that they rarely mention the characters previous adventures.
The narration is perfection. Paul Michael is like listening to silk. His gender changing is transparent.
Anyone that says this books is predictable needs to get a big glass ball and join the circus.
No, again more of the same, Langdon and Partner chased and in mortal danger, meanwhile exchanging knowledge and showing touristic and other details.
I already didn't finish The Lost symbol. No more Dan Brown.
Nothing new on the Divina Comedia, maybe some interesting details on the City of Florence
Dan Brown should change his style. Real people don't speak nor act like his characters in this book. Digital Fortress was much better.
IT'S PRETTY MUCH A PAGE TURNER. NOW I WILL CONTRIDICT MYSELF AND SAY IT'S NOT ALL THAT COMPELLING AND RATHER FORCED. AND WILL BROWN EVER BRING A MODICUM OF DEPTH TO HIS CHARACTERS?. THERE ARE FORCEFUL ARGUEMENTS HERE REGARDING THE OVER POPULATION OF OUR PLANET. ALSO AN IN DEPTH AND ONGOING TRAVELOGUE OF FLORENCE, AND ANOTHER CITY I WON'T MENTION.
No Dan brown book will ever reach the level of The Da Vinci Code but Inferno is a good book overall. There is action from the very beginning to the end with twists and turns along the way. It is an entertaining book that saw the hours pass by quickly. A good listen.
Having read many Dan Brown novels, I have to say: This was deeply disappointing.
The story is weak and everything has the feeling of having been created with a deep search of Wikipedia.
The story has some glaring basic fact errors, like a jet being chartered from Monaco airport (try to find that if you will) to the main story line (basic population theory) and how it's being told.
Just don't buy this book. It's a waste of money and time.
"very disappointing, very repetitive."
Someone who will not listen to it continuously
Not sure yet
Just a really poor repetive story. Sections of the text were repeated word for word in consecutive chapters
loves this audio book, story is so engaging, couldn't stop listening....
really good to listen to, and he throws in the odd accent or ladies voice which is fun...
No, I was disappointed with the loss of reality, Dan Brown seems to have lost it
yes, I must admit to Googling Dante's inferno , however the storyline lost interest when characters who were believed dead, suddenly appeared and admitted to being actors engaged solely for a performance to convince the hero they had been shot ???
the facts , historical and religious as usual are well documented , however the story was too unbelievable
The Narration was quite good
I won't buy the next Dan Brown solely on His name , as I have in the past. This storyline was too far from reality
"Pure Dan Brown"
Intrigue, mystery, fascinating
Pure Dan Brown. Lve the story, the historical facts and how they can be intertwined so artistically.
I couldn't wait to get back ton it every time I put it down and felt very sorry when it was over.
If you like dan Brown, you'll love this new addition to his latest novels.
"I loved it and can't wait for the movie :)"
Langdon once again made it all so historically interesting! I love facts written into novels!
Very De Vinci Code
