In his international blockbusters The Da Vinci Code, Angels & Demons, and The Lost Symbol, Dan Brown masterfully fused history, art, codes, and symbols. In this riveting new thriller, Brown returns to his element and has crafted his highest-stakes novel to date. In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology, Robert Langdon, is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces: Dante’s Inferno. Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante’s dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust...before the world is irrevocably altered.

Reader skip paragraphs. Not consistent with the book. Biggest scam!!!!!
I consider that I can only critique a book, if I myself wrote one and sold the same amount of volumes.
At this stage in my life I am a consumer of good belletristic readings, and this is a great one.
He is following the same old formula. It starts well as a kind of thriller (who are these people and why do they want to kill me?) but three quarters in he starts to resolve plot points with ridiculous turns in the story. Of course the characters are one dimensional but that is OK but only if the plot is exciting and follows its own rules in a fair way. The blatant product placement is worse than the worst in a Hollywood movie. At the end he seems to be making a personal neo - Malthusian case for eugenics believe it or not, which runs against every religious and human value that Dante held. I don't think Brown understands or appreciates the values of the Italian Renaissance. He just wants to exploit Dante's name and fame in the most superficial way possible. I regret buying this audiobook.
