Procura do Utilizador  - Blair - Goodreads

Exceptional, but better appreciated with secondary material, either during or after reading. I recommend during, as the prose verges on tedious in english translation. In fact, it's best read in annotated version, which I've seen in stores. Ler crítica na íntegra

Very interesting perspective on Dante's part of hell. Contained beautiful syncretism of Pagan philosophies and characters (Greek/Roman) and Christian figures. Ler crítica na íntegra

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. The horrors of The Inferno were certainly cautionary, but not exactly in keeping with what modernity would deem the correct weight of sins. On to Purgatorio. Ler crítica na íntegra

Enjoyed this read; quite a page-turner for me. Too many chase scenes risk the inviting of comparison to, say Indiana Jones movies. But overall, entertaining, and concerning an important contemporary subject. Ler crítica na íntegra
