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.

17 hours of a history lesson about Dante

Would you try another book from Dan Brown and/or Paul Michael?

I love Dan brown. I like the Langdon series but this one bored me to tears. There were times in the story when I simply wished I had the nook so I could rip the pages out. So many history lessons and very little actual storyline. At one point I wondered if Dan Brown had trouble finding a way to end the book because the climax didn't do it for me.

Would you ever listen to anything by Dan Brown again?

Oh yes, I have read a number of his books and I would definitely listen to them on audio.

What does Paul Michael bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He brings characters to life and in this instance was the only reason I finished the book.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

There was some intrigue and a couple of good twists however, the history lessons about Dante ruined it for me.

Any additional comments?

I found the climax slightly forced and I got the impression that the author found himself boxed in and searching for a way to end it.

Thought-provoking story

I thought Inferno was a very thought-provoking story. Definitely much better than the Lost Symbol. I feel the movie version does not do the book Justice. I encourage that people should listen to the story. Because you don't know who you would agree with.

A brilliant masterpiece

Dan Brown is my favorite author. I love the way his stories are full of factual references. He keeps me sitting in my driveway long after I arrive because I stop listening. This was truly a treat that constantly had me guessing and left me satisfied with the way things ended. Enjoy.
