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

    "Plot nonsense"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. The premise and outcome are evil, and worse still, stupid.


    What aspect of Paul Michael’s performance would you have changed?

    The narrator was excellent


    Do you think Inferno needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes. Dan Brown needs to get into a time machine and reverse the plot.


    Any additional comments?

    For the overpopulation of the Earth crowd and Dan Brown, here is a factoid that may help cleanse your brains:

    If we built a Manhattan-type city covering only one-half the surface of Texas, everyone on Earth could live there.

    Population of the word = 6,653,000,000 people
    Size of Texas = 268820 sq miles
    One sq mile = 27,878,400 sq ft
    Texas has 7.5 trillion sq. ft.
    1126 sq ft per person

    Manhattan = 33.77 square miles
    Population = 1,620,000
    581 sq ft per person (compared to 563 sq ft per person in our giagantic Texas city covering only 1/2 of the state)

    "Like it .. not love it"

    It is a simple story line, easy to figure out what is going on .. didn't need to listen to closely. I enjoyed it but not like I enjoyed Angels and Demons ... This book is not in the same category of good. So it was an okay book. If you like Dan Brown you will like it not love it
