My Take: So, I wasn’t really sure what I would think of this book. All I knew was there was stuff about Hell, a guy, and escaping. Really, it didn’t give me much by reading the synopsis. But I figured what the heck, it’s about hell. It can’t be that bad right?
True. It really wasn’t that bad. Now, I know I didn’t give it my highest rating, and the reason for that isn’t because I didn’t like the storyline – but because I felt like sometimes I was confused. I understood the story, but at times I got confused about different characters, or why they were truly important to the storyline.
If you like things that have to deal with some mythology, the seven platforms of Hell and well, some gruesome bits, I definitely recommend this book. However, I don’t recommend having a snack while reading because there are parts that will make your stomach turn from description alone.
All in all, I liked the book, and I’ll probably go back to read it a second time so I understand more bits here and there.
