Excellent reader and story
The reader was excellent. She was clear, crisp and didn't put on annoying voices for each character.
The story was brilliant. I was sorry it ended.

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."
Powerful story that ran out of puff

Too Scooby Doo!
The plot was too much like a Scooby Doo story where the great ghost reveal is always explained. it was written for a movie not as a book and felt hurried. having said that it wasn't bad, it just wasn't great.
The reader was the best I've heard. Easy to listen to, not exagerated, just perfect.
I guess I also connected with the bad guy too so it made it hard wanting him to succeed haha.
