Curt's Talking About...

Curt's reading tastes are broad and eclectic (except he won't read anything political until he's aged 30). His list of recommendations would be as long as your leg if we let him keep talking.

5/5 The Divine Comedy is about the soul going through the depths of Hell and ascending to the gates of Heaven. I'm not a religious person by anymeans, but I tend to find that religious books make for a great read. I personally love that the whole book is a poem! The wording/ format that Dante used couldn't have been better.
