I really liked the concept for this. A middle-aged woman, mother of three, descents into Hell in order to find her lost family in this modern take on Dante’s inferno.
What I liked was the main character, she was a real person and not a likely main character. I also liked the concept, as I said, but I felt that in the execution is was sometimes a bit too crowded, and I felt less would have been more in this case. Virgil has been changed for William Blake, possibly because he wrote some works on heaven and hell, that I haven’t read. Also, Agatha Christie alters as the guide. There are a lot of quotes from the works of people they encounter, but once again it was a bit too much.
Also, the artwork was not really my style. While I appreciate the desperateness that is clear from it, it was a bit too sketchy for me.
Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
