Overview

Suppose that you have messed up your life so badly that you are in danger of going to Hell. Suppose further that a deceased loved one tries to save your soul by getting permission for you to travel through Hell and see how the damned are tormented. You get to see how the unrepentant sinners are justly punished for the sins they have committed. You also are able to talk to some of the sinners. All of this is a last-ditch effort to educate you enough that you will know how to live so that you can stay out of Hell when you die. But the sinners are not on your side. They tell self-serving stories and leave out important information. Nevertheless, you can learn something from the sinners you talk to. Can you see through the sinners’ self-serving stories and learn what you need to know to stay out of the Inferno after you die?

At the beginning of Dante’s INFERNO, Dante the Pilgrim is in the dark wood of error and cannot find his way out. But help is coming.

Teachers, the author gives you permission to buy one copy of this book per course and to share it without extra cost with all the students in that course.

The INFERNO is one-third of Dante's THE DIVINE COMEDY, which consists of the INFERNO, PURGATORY, and PARADISE. THE DIVINE COMEDY is also available in a Kindle edition and may be purchased at Amazon.

This is retelling of Dante's "Inferno" in novel form.

Read in my youth but better understood with your book in my later adult life.

In my opinion this is the best version avalible anywhere. It is hard to read unless you enjoy such topics as hell or religon, and it is also written in older English. Still the best translation out there.

I got this book thinking it would be good...and don't get me wrong it is, but I like a challenging book that makes me think. This retell in prose is too flat out and obvious it' s like reading Dr. Suesses 1 Fish 2 Fish Red Fish. Did I mention i'm only 14? Now do you get it?

You must know alot of vocabulary to understand. Might even brush up on your roman gods otherwise you will be lost in this book. But i must say it has great grammar.
