Inferno: The Epic Tale of Dante’s Journey Through Hell by Mark C. Scioneaux

I remember reading Dante’s Inferno as required reading in high school. I also remember not loving it as much as I loved this book!

Inferno is a perfect companion book to the original. It gives us a little more information about the journey of the two poets, Dante and his guide, Virgil. As each ring of Hell gets darker, we hear about some of the famous people that are stuck in those rings and what they did to get them there.

Scioneaux does a fantastic job with the embellishment of information on the multiple characters that the poets come across. It’s just enough to know who they are and what time frame they lived. If you love history, you will easily recognize the names. And if you aren’t well versed in history, there is enough information relayed that gives the reader a good frame of reference.

What a harrowing journey it was! This is definitely a shelf worthy read! Go check it out!
