Dante's Inferno by Dante Alighieri

The book Dante's Inferno by Dante Alighieri is the book I will be reviewing. It’s an amazing book where you follow Dante into hell so he can find his wife. Although most copies of the book were in Italian, I was able to get an English copy for the review.

SPOILER WARNING!!!!

The book starts when the main character “Dante” ventures to hell's gate to find his wife. He begins his quest in limbo. He meets the three headed dog that guards hell's gate.  Dante defeats it and continues on to limbo, the first place he must go to. He arrives there by taking the Charon ferry across the river of Woe. While going through limbo he sees the souls trapped there. The next place he must go is lust, where those who committed the sin of lust are kept. I don't want to go any further with the plot. I suggest you read the book first.

END OF SPOILERS!!!!
I would rate the book a 9 out of 10. If you have a heart of glass I don't suggest this book. This book is dark in tone. The book is an amazing book and I recommend it to anyone who is at least over the age of 10. My connection to this book is that it was a book that had lots of emotion and had an amazing and fulfilling ending.
