Gabe3886’s #CBR4 review 3 – The Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri

The Divine Comedy by Dante AlighieriThis review represents a change in direction of my reading for a title, and delves into the classic text by Dante Alighieri where he embarks on a journey through the different levels of hell, and describes in vivid detail the underworld and the punishment which awaits the sinners who end up there.  After hearing so much about the classics, and The Divine Comedy, I was curious to see what all the fuss is about and decided to give this one a go.  This particular copy was given an introduction by a scholar of the text, and lead into the actual poem itself which had references to a bibliography in the back to help other scholars to understand the book.

Yes, I did say this is a poem.

This book isn’t the best book out there, and I didn’t enjoy it as much as I might had I had an interest in classic texts, but there is a good story within the pages none the less.

Coming soon, there’s another Andy McNab book, and the first in the Clive Cussler series starring Dirk Pitt
