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.

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.
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.
Eeh. I was not quite captivated by the tale. It fit the Dan Brown formula story, but needed to be expanded.
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.
I enjoyed the way the narrator used inflexion to bring out excitement. The narrator did a good job distinguishing between character voices.
It was an appropriate length.
I doubt that I would listen again, but not because it wasn't a good story. There are too many books, so little time.
The scene that unfolds in the hospital and the pursuit that follows.
He was a good narrator with perfect inflection and timing.He was skilled at bringing each of the characters to life.
Not especially. Overpopulation sounds a little scary.
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.
Yes, at least for a while.
Maybe, it would depend on the book.
Can't think of any right now. Definitely not his best and too much like his other books book.
I just could not get into to this Dan Brown book. I think this is a guy book. My husband will probably like it.
