Reading list: Inferno

Just finished reading Inferno by Larry Niven & Jerry Pournelle.

The book is about a sci-fi novelist who gets drunk on the side off a skyscraper and falls off the side as he hurls. The fall kills him and he wakes up in Hell where he is guided through Dante's vision of Hell.

The book paints the torments in Dante's circles very well and in a modern light where the main character the sci-fi writer tries to rationalise everything from the 1600 italian vision of Hell.

Good entertaining and fast read.
