If Paradise is this boring, please keep me out. ( )

I listened to this book on CD instead of actually reading it. The version that I had had an explination at the beginning of each verse to help you understand and then read the verse.

In this book, you travel with Dante as he assins to Heaven through the skies.

I really did not liked this book. There is a lot of astrology in this book (which I did not expect). I did not really understand this book (I have several people tell me that I understand the other two parts of The Divine Comedy better because I live my life more on the sinful side **laughs**). I just did not like it. I would not recommend this, though others might understand it better than me. ( )

I started this but couldn't finish it, I really need to get back to it. Unlike the other books, it just seemed like the personalities weren't as interesting ,and I guess the rewards just weren't as interesting as the punishments.... ( )

Not the correct edition, since I don't know who the translator of my copy was. My apologies.

For some reason, I found Paradise harder to read than the other two sections. Still, well worth the effort for the beautiful language, and how it makes other people's references to Dante fall into place! ( )

I read this for my Medieval Intellectual History class. I found it fascinating, especially as a meditation on relationship between Dante the Christian and Dante the poet and where they overlap and where they don’t and how the shaping of the identity of one ties into the shaping of the identity of the other. Also, it was odd to read it while finishing my thesis, because now I think I could write an essay about the ways in which the Paradiso shaped Monna Innominata. [April 2011]

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0140441050, Paperback)

In "Paradise", having plunged to the uttermost depths of Hell and climbed the Mount of Purgatory, Dante ascends to Heaven, continuing his soul's search for God, guided by his beloved Beatrice. As he progresses through the spheres of Paradise he grows in understanding, until he finally experiences divine love in the radiant presence of the deity. Examining eternal questions of faith, desire and enlightenment, Dante exercised all his learning and wit, wrath and tenderness in his creation of one of the greatest of all Christian allegories.
