I was so excited to get to review this book by Kurt Burner and Jim Ware. To be honest I had trouble with understanding most of what I was reading. I have never read anything by Dante and therein lies the main problem. It is Burners and Wares take/ telling of Dante's Divine Comedy. I had to reread quite a few pages to understand what was being said. I am still confused over the story and feel kind of bad for not understanding more of what was said. I would love to tell you what it was about but I am not sure. I so badly want to give a great review and tell what it is all about but I want to be honest. I just simply am not sure.
I am going to give it a reread and see if I understand it better a second time.
