Publisher's Summary

Now a Major Motion Picture

With the publication of his groundbreaking novels The Da Vinci Code, The Lost Symbol, and Angels & Demons, Dan Brown has become an international best-selling sensation, seamlessly fusing codes, symbols, art, and history into riveting thrillers that have captivated hundreds of millions of fans around the world. Now Dan Brown takes listeners deep into the heart of Italy, guiding them through a landscape that inspired one of history's most ominous literary classics.

"The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis."

Harvard professor of symbology Robert Langdon awakens in a hospital in the middle of the night. Disoriented and suffering from a head wound, he recalls nothing of the last 36 hours, including how he got there...or the origin of the macabre object that his doctors discover hidden in his belongings.

Langdon's world soon erupts into chaos, and he finds himself on the run in Florence with a stoic young woman, Sienna Brooks, whose clever maneuvering saves his life. Langdon quickly realizes that he is in possession of a series of disturbing codes created by a brilliant scientist - a genius whose obsession with the end of the world is matched only by his passion for one of the most influential masterpieces ever written: Dante Alighieri's dark epic poem The Inferno.

Racing through such timeless locations as the Palazzo Vecchio, the Boboli Gardens, and the Duomo, Langdon and Brooks discover a network of hidden passageways and ancient secrets as well as a terrifying new scientific paradigm that will be used either to vastly improve the quality of life on earth...or to devastate it.

In his most riveting and thought-provoking novel to date, Dan Brown has raised the bar yet again. Inferno is a sumptuously entertaining listen - a novel that will captivate listeners with the beauty of classical Italian art, history, and literature while also posing provocative questions about the role of cutting-edge science in our future.

I felt like I was in the book!

I absolutely loved it and did not want to pause the audio book for a moment! I'm a huge fan of Dan Brown and was a little worried that the audio book experience wouldn't be quite the same, and it was actually much better than I expected! You can still use the imagination factor of picturing the sets and still feel the excitement of what's coming next.

Fast pace, easy listening, makes you think

It reminds us of the fragility of the human race and our capability to enhance or destroy it.

Repulsive sense of life

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.

Dan Brown fan continues

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.
