Bsessed artist and writer Gabriel Rossetti will be the next victimChristina enlists poets Robert Browning and Alfred Tennyson and famous scholar Dr Oliver Wendell Holmes to assist in deciphering the literary clues Together these unlikely investigators rush to unravel the secrets of Dante's verses in order to find Gabriel and stop the killings Racing between the shimmering mansions of the elite and the dark corners of London's underworld they descend further and further into the mystery But when th. I absolutely loved The Dante Club and was so excited to see there was a seuel At the beginning it seemed like a repeat of the story with just a change in scenery from Boston to London but things take an unpredictable path and the copycat Dante killer is not what he seems This is not at all a replay of The Dante Club it is a completely different animal If possible it s even surprising suspenseful and shocking The twists were jaw dropping One astonished me so completely that I actually had to stop reading put the book down and say Oh my god out loud I could not believe what I was reading The reason for these deaths blew my mind While The Dante Club started a bit slowly and then picked up The Dante Chamber had much better pacing and was exciting right from the start and all the way throughThe writing is smart and incredible the characters are so well done that I really felt like I knew these poets High school English was never very exciting as all the old dead white guys weren t very relatable to my teenage self If only I had known them like they are in The Dante series They re so vibrant and real that I forget this is fiction If you ask me about Tennyson I will be sure to note that he was pretty well blind and loved to uote his own poems which he would praise as brilliant Browning loved his wife deeply but was a bit of a pompous ass I don t know if all this is true but it feels like the truth and it s the version of these famous men that I will remember in the future These poets act like divas They are self centered self important patronizing and absolutely hilarious The Dante Chamber is a thoughtful read that will reuire you to use your brain but it is so clever and funny that it will be completely painless I received this book for free through a Goodreads Firstreads giveaway but this has not influenced my review in any way
