    "Not as good as I hoped."
    Would you try another book from Dan Brown and/or Paul Michael?

    I probably will.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Dan Brown? Why or why not?

    I like his work, but this story just seemed too much of a repeat of his earlier work.


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

    The narration was great. The voice inflections helped create and distinguish the characters from each other as the story developed.

    Story
    "Predictable Dan Brown"
    What disappointed you about Inferno?

    It was one big chase scene. I never figured out what role the doctor in the beginning of the book played. I didn't think the story had any substance. Just chase and escape, which was very nerve racking.


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

    Yes, at least for a while.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Paul Michael?

    Maybe, it would depend on the book.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Can't think of any right now. Definitely not his best and too much like his other books book.


    Any additional comments?

    I just could not get into to this Dan Brown book. I think this is a guy book. My husband will probably like it.

    Story
    "It's what you'd expect from a Dan Brown book"

    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.

    Story
    "Dan Brown again but not as Inspired"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Eeh. I was not quite captivated by the tale. It fit the Dan Brown formula story, but needed to be expanded.


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

    I enjoyed the story, but it lacked the thought and inspiration I expect from Dan Brown. The story was fast paced and exciting, but missing something deeper.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I enjoyed the way the narrator used inflexion to bring out excitement. The narrator did a good job distinguishing between character voices.


    Was Inferno worth the listening time?

    It was an appropriate length.

    Story
    "Dan Brown delivers again."
    Would you listen to Inferno again? Why?

    I doubt that I would listen again, but not because it wasn't a good story. There are too many books, so little time.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Inferno?

    The scene that unfolds in the hospital and the pursuit that follows.


    What about Paul Michael’s performance did you like?

    He was a good narrator with perfect inflection and timing.He was skilled at bringing each of the characters to life.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not especially. Overpopulation sounds a little scary.
