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.

    Story
    "He's done it again"
    Would you listen to Inferno again? Why?

    To see if I can pick up on the twist


    What did you like best about this story?

    The fact that real places are tied into the story, and that it's a history lesson rapped up in modern world issues.


    Have you listened to any of Paul Michael’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Outstanding as always!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me think about our world today and what may be ahead for future generations.

    Story
    "The Emperor's New clothes without the Emperor."
    What disappointed you about Inferno?

    I don't know if the King is in the altogether as naked as the day that he was born. Instead his most finely tailored suit went out for a walk without him. I think it was the janitor wearing it. I love history and I love Florence also but I thought I was buying a suspense novel. This was little more than a travel guide with a bit of history and no pictures. There was some kind of story in it I think but it wasn't much of one. I won't spoil the end for anyone but the idea of what the danger is fits in well with recent news. Unfortunately, it seemed that Mr. Brown had a deadline to meet or something because the the plot could have been much more realistic and with much more plausible twists. One great thing about this book (and all of his books) is that it makes my childlike curiosity run rampant. I am going to read a book I never had an interest in, Dante's Inferno (I've had the CDs on my bookshelf for a couple of years). I haven't read "Digital Fortress" yet either (also on my shelf) but I certainly will. Mr. Michael did a great job with what he was handed. Gotta see what else he did.

    Story
    "Decent entry into the this series"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend it to those that really enjoy this series. Not for the casual fan of the Langdon novels.


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

    I would for the the simple fact that I really love quite a bit of his work. I would love to see him write another stand alone novel, a la Deception Point.


    What about Paul Michael’s performance did you like?

    Mr. Michael had the perfect voice for this tale. Ominous, just like the novel would be written. And of course, all the foreign words and locations were pronounced perfectly (at least to my knowledge). Great job with the multitude of voices and accents!<br/>


    Could you see Inferno being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I do not really see this as much of a movie oportunity.<br/>

    Story
    "Not up to Dan Brown's usual standard"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, it was depressing and not that interesting. Very little symbology and a lot of philosophy.


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

    No, I love this kind of genre. I devoured the other titles from Dan Brown. The DaVinci Code and Angels & Demons were terrific!


    Was Inferno worth the listening time?

    No, it was slow moving and really "preachy".

    "Fantastic!"
    If you could sum up Inferno in three words, what would they be?

    Dante, Amazing, Unexpected


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like how he blended fiction and fact, bringing awareness to issues that can't be ignored. The twists just kept coming and I enjoyed every word of the book.


    Which character – as performed by Paul Michael – was your favorite?

    Provost


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

    The part where he talked about the direction our out of control spike in population is taking us. It was eye opening realizing we are a one way trip to doom if we don't figure out something soon.

    "Great book."
    What made the experience of listening to Inferno the most enjoyable?

    I liked the story line, it had a lot of twists and turns. The ending wasn't predictable which I liked.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I wasn't sure who were his allies and who were his enemies. Things kept changing and that kept my interest.

    "It's a Dan Brown book- it's good"
    Where does Inferno rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Inferno is a good book and another Robert Langdon story- not the best one I have read/heard, but a good one.


    Any additional comments?

    Robert Langdon needs to retire and go to florida- he's had a rough go.

    "Inferno was burning up my headphones!"

    I'm a Dan Brown fan. I read most everything he writes. This was my first listen to one of his books and although I loved Paul Michael's ability to effortlessly switch from one voice to another, I missed actually reading this book. That being said, I found this an interesting and intriguing story with a thought provoking issue. What IF there was a virus that could do what was created (without giving anything away here).? Overall, if you enjoy all of the Robert Langdon novels, this one is another great read. Thank you Mr. Brown!!

    Boring....boring....boring....I keep rewinding it and still can't get into the story. A combination of a boring story and boring narrator.
