The Dante Club

The Dante Club - Matthew Pearl I really liked this book! It was hard for me, because so many characters are introduced in the first part of the book, it was difficult for me to keep them all straight. So, I started over, with a cheat sheet and then I could follow the story.

This book requires some effort from the reader, but it's worth it in the end. I'm not naturally a murder-mystery kinda gal, but I enjoyed this book.

The murders are particularly gruesome. I gagged my way through the first one. Since I had to start it over, I gagged my way through the first one twice!
