Have you read Inferno?

  1. Of course, Purgatorio and Paradisio too!

    Well, In preparation with the release of the game, I thought I may as well ask... How many people have actually read it?

    Yeah, and I still have my big old smelly fat copy lying around somewhere.
    Fat, because it also included Purgatory and Paradiso.

    I've only read parts of it (translated, of course). It's not my type of book and I was curious.

    I wish more people would have read it. Since the game was announced I've been passing a joke that the programming was even coded entirely in terza rima, but nobody gets it.

    here in italy they force you to read it in high school but i don't remember many things about it.
    Actually it's not an easy book cuz dante frequently refers to characters and events of his life in florence during the Guelph-Ghibelline conflict goin on in mid-italy during middle ages.

    Purgatorio and Paradisio are boring. Inferno is the only one worth reading.

    Is it really good. I have been interested in it but haven't gotten around to borrowing it from the library.
