Review: Inferno (The Divine Comedy #1)

User Review  - Javier - Goodreads

I have always wanted to read this book. I enjoyed reading this because I had heard so much about it all my life and there are so many references to it in literature. And it was damn good. A little tough sometimes because I had to look up so many names and words but well worth wading through. Read full review
