I have just finished Dan Brown's newest book, Inferno, and can't tell you it was worth the time I spent slogging through it. The best I can say is that Paul Michael does a good job narrating this sad, formulaic, trip down the same road traveled in Brown's prior books. This time Robert Langdon wakes up in hospital with amnesia, meets a beautiful woman-with-whom-he-does-not-get-involved, immediately witnesses a murder, and goes on the run with her to escape from people trying to kill him while he pursues the symbolism in Dante's Inferno to save the world from a deadly virus created by a madman. The reader is treated to the same "lectures about things the world has not understood" -- this time about Dante, Florence, vector viruses, and overpopulation of the world. Brown's writing style is sloppy, and (remarkably) Robert Langdon remains under-developed and again appears as a "I have no life or personality" character who is marginally affected by the remarkable situations and events in the plot. I recommend you skip this one...

Another Dan Brown thriller, full of twists & turns. I found myself gripping my car's steering wheel in anticipation & suspense, only to (sort of) breathe a sigh of relief. 'Sort of' because there was another suspenseful passage ahead.
The narrator did a fantastic job of (foreign) accents and emoting of the characters' feelings.
Sad I'm done with the book, but will look for other suspenseful & intriguing books narrated by the same person.
Excellent & timely book!

Just a really poor repetive story. Sections of the text were repeated word for word in consecutive chapters

it was a great story! It unfolded the same way a mystery/thriller movie plot would unfold!
