On Feb 13 2015, a reader said:
"The Dante Club" is a historical fiction novel laced in the mystery-thriller genre. Historical fiction books are some of my favorite. Matthew Pearl did a wonderful job piecing together this novel. You have a literary group (consisting of three poets, a historian and a publisher) working against odds to translate Dante's "Divine Comedy" in order to bring it to America for the first time ever. In the process of this, someone is going around killing people referencing the book. The group, along with one of the first African American policemen in Boston, are trying to solve the mystery together. I enjoyed how everything fell into place in the end showing that there were keys through-out the book. It also shines a light of real issues of that era. I look forward to reading more of Matthew Pearls books.
