Publisher's Summary

From national best-selling author Sylvain Reynard comes the haunting, unforgettable tale of one man’s salvation and one woman’s sensual awakening....

Enigmatic and sexy, Professor Gabriel Emerson is a well-respected Dante specialist by day, but by night he devotes himself to an uninhibited life of pleasure. He uses his notorious good looks and sophisticated charm to gratify his every whim, but is secretly tortured by his dark past and consumed by the profound belief that he is beyond all hope of redemption.

When the sweet and innocent Julia Mitchell enrolls as his graduate student, his attraction and mysterious connection to her not only jeopardizes his career, but sends him on a journey in which his past and his present collide.

An intriguing and sinful exploration of seduction, forbidden love, and redemption, Gabriel’s Inferno is a captivating and wildly passionate tale of one man’s escape from his own personal hell as he tries to earn the impossible - forgiveness and love.

    Story
    "I'm tired of the heroine 'staring at her shoes'."

    The heroine annoyed me from the start. I kept trying to give it time but it just keeps getting worse. I'm about 2.5 hours in and I just can't take any more. She has zero backbone and the constant staring at her shoes, hanging her head and being frightened by everything is driving me nuts. She's not the kind of person I'd ever want to be around. The hero? He's a complete d-head with (so far) no redeeming qualities. I just finished a pedophile-like scene (flashback) where he has just been awful to his family and sent some of them to the hospital and then everyone decides to leave this little girl alone with him so he can give her beer and kiss her and lay down with her and ask her creepily if she's ever kissed a boy, held hands with a boy etc and he keeps replying to her 'no' that he'll be her first. Yuk. It seems like it's supposed to mirror Dante and his obsession with Beatrice but now, when it flashes forward, I can't see him as a romantic hero, he's just a creepy pedophile. I can't take another 18 hours of it.

    Story
    "Weak leading lady"
    What disappointed you about Gabriel's Inferno?

    If you have a hard time listening to wimpy people, you will have a hard time listening to this story. The leading lady "Beatrice" needs to slap herself a couple of times and wake up. She needs to realize that she is being controlled by the professor. I am very glad I only paid $4.95 for this listen, considering it downloaded in 3 parts and I stopped listening half way through part 2.

    On the other hand, the narrator did an excellent job.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Sylvain Reynard again?

    No


    What three words best describe John Morgan’s performance?

    Very good narration


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment and disgust

    "i felt bad for the narrator."
    What disappointed you about Gabriel's Inferno?

    this story...i just can't describe how terrible the writing is. the narrator did the best with what he had, but i couldn't make it through more than 45 minutes. i was horribly, horribly disappointed because the premise has potential. i'm glad i bought it on sale, but i'm still wishing for my money back.

    "Not at all what I thought it would be :("

    I was so disappointed in this one. It was what I call...boring!!! I would not recommend it or listen to it a second time. Wish I had passed this one up.

    "Overly dramatic but entertaining"
    What did you like best about Gabriel's Inferno? What did you like least?

    Based on earlier reviews I was expecting more than a overly dramatic, and predictable, romance. Didn't meet my expectation, but reasonably entertaining.


    Did Gabriel's Inferno inspire you to do anything?

    no.

    "People don't talk like this."

    It was just O.K. for me. I caught myself rolling my eyes a lot. I will not be listening to the 2nd book, it just wasn't for me.

    Story
    "Heart Stopping ..."
    Would you listen to Gabriel's Inferno again? Why?

    The first half of the book,the attraction between Julia and Gabriel kept me coming back to the book for more. The second half of the book was so very difficult to stop reading as I just wanted to know what came next. I love their story ... And I loved the references to Dante, the Italian, the artwork, the romance. It connect mind, body and soul. I am looking forward to listening to the next book in the series.

    Yes, I am addict... I love books, I read and listen and just can't get enough. I do not like non fiction because it is too much like learning and I would rather dive in and be transported to a new world or adventure!
