Publisher's Summary

After being thrown out of the window of his luxury apartment, science-fiction writer Allen Carpentier wakes to find himself at the gates of Hell. Feeling he's landed in a great opportunity for a book, he attempts to follow Dante's road map. Determined to meet Satan himself, Carpentier treks through the nine circles of Hell, led by Benito Mussolini, and encounters countless mental and physical tortures. As he struggles to escape, he's taken through new, puzzling, and outlandish versions of sin recast for the present day.

Great book, poor rendition

I love this book & know it well having read it many times. Tom Weiner's rendition of it however comes nowhere near doing it justice. His reading voice has great tone and timbre and on that basis ought to be really good, however his phrasing, timing, and particularly inflection are poor and misplaced. Sometimes his phrasing is completely inappropriate to the situation, the words that preceded it and the words that follow. His long drawn out drawl at the end of some words also irritates me, though that's personal taste. If you've read the book I wouldn't recommend this version. If not, well you'll get more or less the sense of it.
