Publisher's Summary

Dan Brown’s new novel, Inferno, features renowned Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon and is set in the heart of Europe, where Langdon is drawn into a harrowing world centred around one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces.
As Dan Brown comments: "Although I studied Dante's Inferno as a student, it wasn't until recently, while researching in Florence, that I came to appreciate the enduring influence of Dante's work on the modern world. With this new novel, I am excited to take readers on a journey deep into this mysterious realm… a landscape of codes, symbols, and more than a few secret passageways."

Dan Brown at his best

Would you consider the audio edition of Inferno to be better than the print version?

No, I still like my printed books but alongside the audio the two are great.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Inferno?

The opening seemed out of place until of course you got to understand

What about Paul Michael’s performance did you like?

Very good

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I must admit it seemed too much like Di Vinci code, Professor Langdon on the run with a woman but still enjoyable more than an extreme reaction.

Any additional comments?

I must say I enjoyed this book over Di Vinci and Lost Symbol as a fan of Dante Mr Brown did well to keep it alive for me.

Great Improvement

This is Dan Brown back to his best; a racy thriller with more twists, turns and total plot inversions than any one book could possibly be expected to contain. It is not great literature, but, then again, it never claims to be. A précis of the plot isn't really possible without spoiling the whole book. Suffice it to say that Robert Langdon, a character who needs no introduction, is back to what he does best, racing across Europe in a desperate attempt to thwart the baddie; who the baddie actually is, however, is swathed in layers of smoke, mirrors and downright misdirection until well into the story.

Whilst Langdon is delightfully the same, he is supported by a cast of well drawn characters who are at once believable yet, in most cases, fundamentally flawed. It is not possible to say more than this without spoiling some element of the caduceus-like plot.

For Audible, however, the performance can make or break the enjoyment of a book, and, in this, the American narration spoiled this to a certain extent. The only non-European character is Langdon himself, so I would have expected some effort on the part of the narrator to reflect this. The entire book is read in American English, the exception being the Italians, whose accents were almost risible in parts, and with such verbal horrors of "niche" continually pronounced to rhyme with "pitch", and "fertile" to rhyme with "turtle". This utterly set my teeth on edge after a while. I appreciate that this is entirely my own personal "taste and fancy", but this is my review and it is sometimes difficult to retain total objectivity.

Overall, this is a great listen, narration aside. Dan Brown fans everywhere will love it; those who never warmed to his oeuvre of the thriller wrapped in conspiracy theory may well be disappointed once again.

start was hard going. story good but over descript

I enjoy Dan Brown books but this started out hard going and lacked the usual draw. It was worth persevering with, however I personally feel there were several points in the story that detracted from the overall experience by describing detail that for me didn't seem to add to any aspect to the characters, story or background.

Powerful story that ran out of puff

A good narration of a strong story which had all the fear of Dante's hell but none of its paradise. Feels like the ending left us in purgatorio....
