Slow going for the first 100 pages or so, while the author is setting up the dynamics of the people in the Dante Club, but after that, a real page turner. Kept me guessing. Basically, the Dante Club is Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Oliver Wendell Holmes, James Lowell and J.T. Fields, and they are working on producing an American translation of Dante's Divine Comedy in 1865. Suddenly, they realize that someone in Boston is a serial murderer, and they are basing the murders on Dante's Inferno.

slacker me, i received this at the last BXer meetup, but hadn't journaled it. i thought i should at least acknowledge that i'd gotten it before i went to the next one, eh?? i've read about 70 pages so far, between being lazy and doing nothing. so far so good!!

This book picked up almost exactly around the hundredth page. I had put it down for more than a week, but after that point it really got interesting. A good mystery, i was surprised by the culprit but never felt like i was clueless. it's even made me think about getting a copy of Dante's Inferno to read again (had to once in high school).
