Review: The Inferno (The Divine Comedy #1)

Procura do Utilizador  - Bob Naja - Goodreads

If god wanted to hire an Architect to build Hell, Dante would have been the most eligible candidate! Hollander's translation is probably one of the best adaptations of the Inferno. It is very easy to read especially with the explanation chapter after each canto. Ler crítica na íntegra

The first installment of Dante's Devine Comedy and the source of all the popular renditions of Hell as a flaming, subterranean pit filled with daemons and boiling oil. Dante's hell bears a striking ... Ler crítica na íntegra

Good story, but with little knowledge of the "story behind the story" I found myself looking in the notes section a lot. Worthwhile, but took a long time to finish. I will read the other two however, mostly just to say I did. Ler crítica na íntegra

Gave it four stars despite its obvious genius - because, well, I probably only half-understood it, and found it a bitch to get through. Had a version which lays out the specifics of what each previous ... Ler crítica na íntegra

Review: Inferno (The Divine Comedy #1)

Procura do Utilizador  - Melissa - Goodreads

Amazing and bizarre. To have lived in a time awhen the fires and ice of hell were as real as the sun rising each day.
