I loved this, pure poetry and a beautiful dip into a different view on hell.

If you want to write a mystery, do it. If you want to write philosophy, write a textbook. Don't try to combine the two. I couldn't figure out the story line for all the random quotes and mumbo-jumbo thrown in.

Dante's Inferno, despite a fairly intricate plot, fails to deliver much suspense or mystery. Most of the developments upon which the story twists and turn were formulaic and predictable.
