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.

    "Eh"

    Not a fan of all the minute detail included re: the art and museums. Felt like it really slowed the story down.

    "BORING!!!"
    What disappointed you about Inferno: A Novel?

    I listened to this book as I took my dog for a walk each day. The ONLY reason I finished it was because I needed to listen to something as I find walking an unending exercise in futility, but for medical reasons, I do walk as often as I can. As someone else said, if you are going to the places mentioned it this book, just listen to this book. You will not need a tour guide. AND it is about as interesting as that. In fact, a book acting as a tour guide would keep you focused so much more than Inferno. It probably would have pictures. This book is just a narration of renaissance art with a slight sideline of a virus that would infect the world and reduce human population. Although, this would have added a great deal of interest and intrigue, it was hardly ever addressed.


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

    I do not think I will ever read Dan Brown's books again. I used to enjoy his writing, but once he gets started on a theme, he will not let it go. He needs to get to the point that he writes to everyday people, not just about HIS interests.


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

    The narration is great.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Inferno: A Novel?

    Most of the parts describing the art. There was so much about that, I lost complete interest in it. Just too much!


    Any additional comments?

    Complete waste. If I had been sitting down reading for all that time, even though that is an activity I enjoy and hardly ever don't finish a book I start, I would have considered this one a lost cause...

    "VERY WELL DONE"

    Each time I listen to one of Dan Brown's, Robert Langton books, I feel that I have taken several courses in architecture. This book was no exception. I have seen some negative reviews of the INFERNO, but I found it to be better than the DA VINCI CODE. There is less reliance on religious speculation and more reliance on scientific speculation.

    Some of the underlying philosophical questions are worth pondering. How do we deal with over population? Are we now the custodians of our own evolution? Is the worst sin not taking action in moral crisis?

    The narrator did an excellent job. His tone almost forces one to listen.

    "Another great one from Dan Brown"

    The story was great, I listened to the entire story in two sittings. And Paul Michael was excellent in his performance. the way it was written and performed gave me a perfect mental movie. I highly recommend this book to any Dan Brown fans, or fans of suspense.

    Finally a Dan Brown without a strangely placed sex scene. Great read especially if you are familiar with The Inferno.

    plotline was just a tad bit thin here and there but by and large riveting. Dan Brown is worthy to be classified among the best.
