    "Great Book"

    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.

    Story
    "Intellectually offensive"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    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.

    "Disappointing"
    What disappointed you about Inferno?

    It was slow and boring. Even a movie with Tom Hanks as the lead couldn't save this story.


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

    No

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

    Sure.


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

    Its what you would expect from Dan Brown. Formulaic.

    No.


    Was Inferno worth the listening time?

    It was.


    Any additional comments?

    It was just OK, nothing special.

    Story
    "Five Star Dan Brown Movie Material"
    What made the experience of listening to Inferno the most enjoyable?

    It was a gripping tale that instantly placed Florence on my must visit list


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

    Fantastic plot and throughly plausible.


    What does Paul Michael bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Paul Michael has an even easy tone and his Italian accent brought Firenze to life


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

    Langdon goes viral to hell and back.


    Any additional comments?

    Just an exceptional tale which already has me trying to second guess who will play Sienna alongside Tom Hanks Robert Langdon.

    Story
    "Rehabilitation for the Eugenicist"

    The Progressive Era and the Eugenicist movements were so horrible it has taken 100 years for someone to write an apologia for it. That is pretty much what Dan Brown did in Inferno, the latest, and perhaps the weakest of the Robert Langdon series.

    The story is typical of Dan Brown. History grafted onto a clockwork plot with clockwork characters coming out and hammering the clockwork bell at times set by the Great Windup Spring of Plot.

    If you've read Dan Brown before, you've read this book before. Lots of historical exposition and a story with all the emotional impact of a Vulcan opera.

    All this and some agitprop for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

    If you thought Brown's writing was weak in his previous outings and are only still reading trying to determine the appeal, this book could put you off the author forever. Enjoy!

    Story
    "Dan Brown does it again!"

    As always, Dan Brown delivers an excellent plot keeping you in suspense till the very end. I only wish the narrator had more range when speaking for the individual characters (although his overall performance was acceptable).

    Story
    "Don't Waste Your Money"
    Would you try another book from Dan Brown and/or Paul Michael?

    Not unless it was free from the library and the reviews were outstanding.


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

    No, but I will be very careful to read all the reviews before I buy another one.


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

    Yes, by voice.


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

    half the descriptive narratives. I wanted to read an action book, not a tourist guide book.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was so hard to slog through, that I finally gave up and didn't finish it which is very unusual for me.

    Story
    "Much better than Lost Symbol"
    What did you love best about Inferno?

    Dan Brown is back. The story is much more exciting than Lost Symbol. The story moves quickly and there are interesting twists.


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

    Paul Michael sounds like how I imagine Langdon speaking.
