From scale 1 to 10, how interested would I be to pursue this recommendation?

Shouldn't it be from scale -1 to -10?

Yeah, skip it and read the rotten.com summary. You'll thank me.

I though it was good, but I do like these types of books, Philosophy and such, also The Inferno has to do with a journey through Hell (and thus madness) It depicts punishments for certain sins. It also is a different vision from the Hell we generally think about. In this, there is a dark forest from which the damned come out of, into limbo and then there is a river and on there other side are the Gates of Hell. In Dante's vision Hell is rounded, and in rings. Each ring holds sinners and bears the sins punishment. In the center is Satan who is frozen (Dante believes that if hell were inside earth that the deeper you go the colder it gets).

And like all faggot morons, it seems adombomb skipped straight to the description of torturies and the architecture of hell. Luckily for faggot morons, that's the only part reading.

Like I said, find a summary and read that instead.

The Inferno was a political smear piece.

"Victory for the Comic Muse" is especially good.
