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.

Say something about yourself!
This book is exactly what you expect it to be, the same formula we've seen before. A fast-paced race to find modern secrets in ancient things, a pretty girl who isn't what she seems to be and piles of miscommunication and misdirection to lead the way.
Some of the characterizations are rather trite, but I only rolled my eyes a couple of times.
What I want to know is why is this still entertaining? Because it is, I just don't get why.
This was one of Dan Browns best novels and it was presented wonderfully by Paul Michael.
Having read several Dan Brown novel's I have come to respect him in his ability to weave a intricate and page-turning reading experience. Even in this work his style stands out; the story, however, and climax In particular reveal how critical plot-theme are to be in conjunction. Without spoiling anything, Dan Brown has a warped view of humanity and "ends justifying the means" philosophy. I cannot in good conscience excuse what could have been a wonderful work for its horrible sense of life. 1 star.
This was my first audible book experience and it was very enjoyable. I am a fan of Dan Brown's books and this one did not disappoint. It was narrated in a voice that had me engaged right from the start. Highly recommend it.
I come to like Dan Brown's work especially the two movies that were made. However, I hope that this one will not be made a movie. It was just okay in book form.
Love books, what else can I say.
I probably will.
I like his work, but this story just seemed too much of a repeat of his earlier work.
The narration was great. The voice inflections helped create and distinguish the characters from each other as the story developed.
