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.

Ok until the end

This one has taken me to the point of having to think about buying another book by Brown. This puts me at 3 likes, 1 blah, and a couple that were ok until the end.
I didn't hate lost symbol but it wasn't up to my 2 faves Angels and Demons along with Deception Point. Da Vinci code I like 3rd. Digital Fortress was good until the ending and now this book.
Story wise I guess it's ok but what a bad ending. The characters are well done and I liked the idea of The Provost but again such a brutal ending.
I hope he can turn it around in the next book but I will say that I won't be surprised if the movie is better than the book which I never really think of any movies.
Just a real letdown. So intrigued and then blah.

Novelist & Narrator

A good novel delivered by Dan Brown; definitely an enjoyable read. Angels and Demons and The DaVinci Code are still my favorites but don't let them take you away from this book. Paul Michael does an excellent job bringing the reader/listener into the midst of Robert Langdon's exciting journey. Recommended for anyone who enjoys a little history with their fictional stories.

With out a doubt, my favorite book series.

Dan Brown has a knack for making a reader feel connected to every character he creates. Sienna Brooks was an incredibly developed, complex character that I feel I know. With the same intellectual writing, and historic, religious, and conspiracy content that forces you to listen for hours on end, Inferno is a perfect sequel to the Robert Langdon anthology.

Love and Hate Dan Brown

I wish I didn't love Fan Browns novels so much as the moral of the stories usually go against my beliefs, but they are exciting reads when I need a break from my non-fiction focus.

Another good Robert Langdon story. Not as good as the first few, but still a great book.
