Read in September, 2009

I had a hard time rating this book. While the writing style itself was frankly pompous and arrogant, the concept itself was fantastical. A pupil beng allowed a tour of hell?It took me quite a while to plod through it and while I'm glad I read it, I couldn't help but breathe a huge sigh of relief when I was finally able to close and reshelf this book.

All in all it was pretty depressing, if Dante actually knew the criteria to land one in hell, I don't know many people who are not going there. So I believe I will take this book with quite a few grains of salt and as the mythylological journey I believe it was intended as.
