Dante's Inferno

The Inferno
By Dante Alighieri

432 pages
5 hours and 5 minutes listening time

Grade C-

I cannot tell a lie. I was bored. I was also lost, mainly because I have a hard understanding old English, and I understand that this one has been translated to English, but either way. So I know I should have probably loved this book, or appreciated it for it's history and the fact that it is still a very well known book even though it is a million years old. But I am sorry to say, I was not thrilled......

ETA: I promised Matt, that one day, I will re-read this book, in paper form, because maybe I will get more out of it in paper form.

No, you know, I don't think you'll get any more from it in paper form. I couldn't even make it through the first chapter myself.

Yup I agree with Jenny, all it was really was Dante commenting on the people of the time and where they ended up in hell and heaven. I have a couple more CDs of this and then I am done and really you know all you need to know to get its reference in popular culture. Tell Matt I said that... (Shauna)
