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.

I really liked the ending, it wasn't a cliche. The attention to detail and history makes all his books great.
Dan Brown is fabulous, and I love every story I've read of his. I only wish that I could see all the things he writes about as a read about them! Can someone develop a virtual audio book, please?! :)
I found the book to be surprisingly dark. Once the book got started, the characters came to life. The secrecy aspect gave the story a special twist.
This book kept me entertained, sometimes thrilled. As with much of Brown, I love the travel diary-like pictures he paints (now I have a greater appreciation for Florence). But that's not what the books about. My 3rd DB, it feels formulaic. All of our characters have too many unrealistic close calls.
This book was well written, and kept my interest. Narration could have been a bit better but i enjoyed it.
Yes Dan Brown's books always have my interest.
Not a huge fan, but he did a good job.
Yes i listened to all of it in 2 days
