  1. The body of one of Venice s brightest young actors is found, crucified, his eyes gouged out and a line of verse carved into his chest His is just the first death as a shadowy group stalk the rulers of Venice and their supporters The murderer, known only as The Chimera, is the leader of this dangerous fanatical group the Stiges or Firebirds determined to kill one of the depraved, the gluttonous, the traitors to their cause one for each of the nine Circles of Dante s Inferno.The Doge of Venice tur [...]

  2. OK, I read this a really long time ago, and all I remember is that after it I told myself I should definitely read The Divine Comedy, by Alighieri If it made such a strong impression on me, I have to read it again, for sure I ll come back on this one.

  5. There seems to be quite a fascination with Dante these days There was Matthew Pearl s Dante Club, and now there s Arnaud Delalande s The Dante Trap Both novels use Dante s Inferno as inspiration for wild murders based on the various tortures faced by the damned in the great Florentine s work It s painful when real historical characters are suddenly transformed into detectives I ve seen Newton and Dante in this role , so I m grieved to say that in the former book a bunch of American poets led by [...]

  7. So the basic concept plot of this book is interesing hense why I picked it up and bought it in the first place however, the fact that it is poorly written made it very difficult to enjoy Not only were there several spelling and grammatical errors, I got so exhausted reading the style it was written in i.e paragraphs that are longer than a full page It just rambled and I truthfully spaced out through a bunch of the fine details I barely knew who some people were or could keep straight who was who [...]

  8. A political murder mystery that is set in 18th centry Venice The writer or translator has this habit of using Italian words in italics with no translation Not knowing these words didn t detract from the story, but I found it annoying Also annoying was the style of writing, with complex sentences and archaic language words such as purloined being used why not just say steal The story itself was mediocre at best, and the surprise twist at the end wasn t all that surprising random There were too m [...]

  9. I enjoyed this I d probably give it 3.5 stars if I could It s translated from the French, and the writing doesn t always flow as nicely as it could perhaps this is just down to the translator, or to the occasional tendency of the author to load us down with historical detail However, I did eventually get swept up in it, and it s very well researched unlike, say, some Dan Brown I could mention and intellectually satisfying Not bad at all it s a shame of the author s work hasn t been translated.

  10. I had high hopes for this, since I like both Dante and Venice Unfortunately the book is verbose, with long, painfully drawn out philisophical diatribes on things like the nature of evil and unnecessarily detailed descriptions of the political situation in Venice at the time Neither of these things adds anything useful to the hunt for the murderer.I was really bored by this book Characters that should have been fascinating and quirky were just there It s really a slog to get through this book and [...]

  11. I really enjoyed this historical thriller Bit Dan Brownish think Angels and Demons but in Venice in the 1700s and better written I was actually reading it while in Venice and got absolutely carried away by it s pace, the chase, and the extravagance, delight and history of that extraordinary city I couldn t put it down

  12. Abandoned around page 30 as the plot donkeys drowned one by one, weighed down by the turgid prose and their requirement to tell don t show as the torpid text began to be read in my head in the voice of Matt Berry and as I couldn t get the memory of Prince Edmund s first attempt at a monicker The Black Vegetable out of my mind

  13. I enjoyed this one It seemed like a cross between the Da Vinci Code and James McGee s Ratcatcher I like Venice and it was interesting to read the snippets of its history that were woven into the pages Enough of them to make it interesting but not too many to interfere with the telling of the story.n

  14. While I thought there were decent scenes from time to time in this book, I wasn t engaged with the book as a whole I also thought there were too many points where the author wanted to demonstrate their research by putting in historical detail not relevant to the plot which bogged down the narrative.2 5.

  16. The French author, Arnaud Delalande, weaved a series of murders in 18th century Venice per Dante Alighieri, s Inferno Descriptions, historical information quite good He is a very literary author Keeps one reading.

  17. Another book about Venice that I bought when I was in Venice to read at night or in cafes This was a pretty decent whodunit, not a great one, but a very nice diversion.

  18. Either poorly written or translated, but good story would make a fantastic movie Found toward the end I had a hard time putting it down.

  19. Great travel read Think of 1750 s Venice, grisly murders based on Dante s 9 circles of hell, investigated by a rake who is himself slightly left of law abiding.

  20. It was okay The ending perplexed me the deus ex machina was amazing and the stupidity of some characters pissed me off However, the imagery was really well written Totes would recommend.
