Loved this book until the last 10-15% or so. Very nice way of combining the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice with a Christian sort of Hell. Yes, it riffs predictably a lot on Dante--as well as classical mythology--but half the fun is seeing what kind of twist the standard tropes will get (a Grim Reaper of sorts drives an antique sedan with the vanity plate "2L84U," Rodin is condemned to sculpt a grotesque parody of his "Gates of Hell" to ornament the actual Gates of Hell...). Top marks for style, and for a seemingly endless font of atmospheric descriptions of sadistic punishments. But there's never any real payoff at the end. It seems to be building toward some sort of grand, horrific revelation, then settles instead for a perfectly fine but not terribly interesting ending.

This was a fun take on the Orpheus story.
