Publisher's Summary

"Abandon hope all ye who enter here." Dante, our young, naive hero, has woken from a deep sleep to find himself in a cold, dark wood. Before he can begin to work out where he is, his path is blocked by a leopard, a lion, and a she-wolf. Things get worse from there, and our pilgrim finds himself on a journey through the very depths of hell.

Why is he there, and will he ever make it out alive? During his journey Dante meets the worst sinners imaginable and witnesses how God punishes them. Although they writhe and wail in tortured agony, he must remain strong, for he has to make it through or he may find himself lost in this dismal place forever.

Who will Dante meet on his journey, and what will he learn?

This first Italian classic from Real Reads is our wonderfully retold version of the first part of Dante’s great epic, told in prose and terza rima by Isabel Coe.

    "Great Story, Great Narrator. Too short."

    Narrator was excellent. I've always loved this story. First heard about the book from playing the PS3 game as a teenager. I'm a fanatic of mythology, especially Greek. The only issue that I have is how short the story was. It really didn't touch on the Beatrice part of the story. I have never read the original, which I think is written in Italian and a lot harder to understand nowadays. I quickly checked out the original versions sales page. It looks as though it would be a lot longer and there is no audible version. I recommend this audiobook. Just know that it doesn't seem to cover much. I think based on the 42 minutes or so that even a price of 4 bucks is kind of high. I think 1.99 would be more appropriate. But this book is a classic and they made it more understandable. This probably has something to do with the higher price.

    "Scary"

    It is interesting to me that our beliefs about Hill mostly come not from the Bible or from Christian teaching, but rather from this poem by Dante. It is a truly imaginative and terrifying tale. Abandon hope all who enter here.
