Gabriel's Inferno Viral Book The only way I know how to describe how bad this book was is to share a few passages with you and give you my feedback. I've maintained the original format as much as I am able to help emphasize some of my points. Here it goes.The Passages"Gabriel brought his hand up slowly so as not to spook her and gently caressed her cheek." What is she? A horse?“Don’t cry, little Rabbit.” Um, Paul is a total creep.“But Julia didn’t want to be keyed.” And then a few paragraphs down. “Julia turned away, ashamed of the sudden and intense rush of emotions she was having, over being keyed of all things, and having him cite beloved children’s literature to her.” Ok, this whole segment has issues. First and most obvious to me was the word keyed. I know this takes place in Canada, but both main characters are American. Not knowing what being keyed meant in Canadian I went to trusty and gave it a looksee. Definition 1: High on marijuana. Considering what a straitlaced, naïve, insult to 23 year-old virgins Julia is, I don’t think she’s high on anything, except maybe Italian poetry over-exposure. Definition 2: when ones vehicle or other expensive possession becomes defaced by someone scraping off the paint with their own set of keys. Well this is definitely something I wanted to do to her face after the first fifty pages. Definition 3: Getting completely fucked up through the use of both alcohol and marijuana. Again the use of illegal substances for our porcelain, angelic heroine I'm not feeling. But maybe she was ducking quick shots from her bottle of cheap tequila, again. If you look at the next part “sudden and intense rush,” this sounds like an ad for Trojans so maybe it has a sexual connotation? But then you throw in the “beloved children’s literature” and I’m starting to get really creeped out. This is Paul again, by the way. What is it with him and kids?!“Beatrice,” his arm tightened around her waist as he moved to whisper against her hair, still damp from the shower. “Don’t cry.” With his brilliant blue eyes closed, Gabriel pressed his lips to her forehead, once, twice, thrice.“I missed you. So much,” she whispered, her lips moving against his tattoo.“You found me,” he murmured. “I should have waited. I love you.”Now Julia wept harder, clinging to him as if she were drowning and he was her savior." *gak!!!* Ok, before your panties get all wet I would like to point out the reason why our virtuous heroine’s hair is wet in the first place. Beatrice, or whatever the heck her name is, found it necessary to tidy herself up a bit after Gabriel lost control of his reflexes during a drinking episode and vomited all over her. ALL OVER HER. The last time my ex-boyfriend got the urge to regurgitate I made a point of staying the hell out of his way and you better believe he did not get the cuddle treatment afterwards. This is not something I want to be in the middle of. I will have you know that it made me personally cringe to have to rewrite the word “thrice” since, as much as the author would like to be as good as Shakespeare, he doesn’t have the sense to realize that this word looks stupid in any other context. The sobbing throughout this book made me ill, a feeling Julia experienced every time someone exposed her to anything sexual in nature. At least we both have the ability to become ill in common. Now keep in mind as we reread this passage and our hearts are aflutter, Gabriel is still very much inebriated during this conversation. Not only does he have no clue what he’s saying, but remembers none of it the next day, which leads me to the next quote."Why is he so angry with me? Why doesn’t he remember?" - omg, seriously? This coming from our little tart who drinks on the sly? Please tell me she’s not so naïve that she doesn’t understand, at least from an academic point of view, the potential side effects of overindulgence. I mean she is, after all, so smart she got admitted to Harvard. Couldn’t figure out how to get a full ride but, nevertheless, was a bright enough talent for the "pole-in-keister Dante specialists" of Harvard. (This keister phrase, btw, was used twice. I'm kinda of the opinion that phrases like this should be used only once in a book since they are so unique and stand out like a blinking light. But who am I to judge. I'm just the reader, not the Dante specialist.)“He sounded like sex. Or at least, what Julia imagined sex would sound like…Oh my, Gabriel. Oh my, Gabriel. Oh my, Gabriel. Oh…my…Gabriel.” BWAAAAHAHAHAHAHA OMG THAT SOUNDS SO INCREDIBILY IDIOTIC I AM BESIDE MYSELF!!! On her kiss with creep boy, Paul: “Julia felt his surprise in the quick clenching of his jaw. He tensed beneath her lips, no doubt in shock at her boldness.” Um, honey, there are other reasons why a guy wouldn’t be receptive to your advances. Considering Paul’s proclivity for children’s lit, I hesitate to venture a guess into what causes him to clench anything.“He would leave her as he found her, the blushing brown-eyed angel, surrounded by bunnies, curled up like a kitten in her little chair.” There is something about this book that is just child-molesty. Maybe because everyone has the maturity level of a 12 year old. This is not a Paul quote, btw. “It was the lyrics about fucking like an animal, and the look on his face as he brought his forehead to hers and whispered it to her, staring straight into her soul…she’d believed she heard the voice of the Devil. Julia had wrenched herself from him and fled to the ladies’ washroom, looking at the pale and shaking girl in the mirror, wondering what the hell had just happened. She did not know why he had spoken to her like that or why he had chosen that moment to confess. Nevertheless, she knew him well enough to know that the repeated lyric was a confession of his deepest and perhaps darkest intentions and not just a mindless repetition.” Holy, moley. What the hell did I just read? The only thing this girl is shaking right now is her head. (This whole scene is referring the Nine Inch Nails song,Closer.) Something visually that I did not care for in this paragraph was the use of italics, which is overused in general in this book. In this paragraph it's emphasizing something that I personally don't think needs the emphasis, especially when coupled with eye-grabbing words like "fucking." Furthermore, the addition of these force the reader to hitch when reading, thus interrupting the flow. Overuse of these devices can tend to lessen their impact to the reader, leaving them with a choice. They can either make the emphasis and feel like they're mentally riding a dirt track or ignore it completely and enjoy the smooth ride. Thus begs the question, was this device even necessary to begin with?"Gabriel? Sweetheart, don’t listen to that kind of music anymore, okay?” She sounds like my mother when I was a teenager.“The other photo took Julia’s breath away, for it was the most overtly erotic, and she was instantly repulsed by its rawness and aggression…Julia was disturbed by the photo,” but not so much that she didn't stop to describe it in full detail, “and immediately looked away in embarrassment.” Methinks something wicked this way comes and she’s in total denial of it.kemfn: I still can’t find a translation for this word. Can’t say I particularly care too, either. Too many blasted different languages in this blasted book."He smashed a chair. He smashed a metal chair." And yet she still walked in the room. Wow. That's healthy.”Look at me when I’m speaking to you.” I knew someone who said this. It pissed me off like you wouldn't believe. “She recognized the top photograph as the fifth one, the one that had been over the bed. It was gently erotic and almost tender. He shouldn’t have been ashamed of this one.” Wait?? Didn't she look quickly away in embarrassment? How the heck does she remember specifically which photograph this is and where it was hanging?! Mmmmm...She is so censorious and judgmental. It’s sickening. The Flower References:• "You blossom under kindness, don’t you? Like a rose." Omigosh, how seriously lame can you be! • "She does blossom under kindness. Just like a rose, opening her petals." Gag!! Apparently incredibly lame!• "Her shoulders were hunched, and her head was down. He’d made his little rose wither. Any blossoming had now been completely undone." You know, one of the best things anyone ever said to me is this. No one forces you to feel anything. Those feelings are something within you and no one but you can control them. With that said, could this chick get just a little more anemic please? • "She would be a rose in his eyes, and she would flower beneath him." God bless it, no more!• "I want her petals to open,' Gabriel breathed softly," TO HIS SISTER, NO LESS! CREEP!The Incessant List of Pretentious Shit:• Chopin’s Nocturne 9, Op. No. 2• Henry Holiday’s Dante meets Beatrice at Ponte Santa Trinita • Venus de Milo and Bernini’s Apollo and Daphne• Botticelli’s complete set of illustrations of The Divine Comedy, original sixteenth century reproductions and the only complete set in existence, naturellement. The Vatican doesn’t even own this.• Serego Alighieri Vaio Armaron Amarone 2000: And yes, just in case you were wondering, this IS the wine from the vineyard that Dante's son purchased in the fourteenth century. So there. O.o *phooooooooo*• Meisterstück 149: a rather ugly (in my humble opinion) fountain pen that costs more than I would like to spend on twenty such writing instruments. • Cyrano de Bergerac: I didn't want him to feel left out• The Velveteen Rabbit: I’m sorry but for some reason this whole kids lit stuff creeped me out big time!• Mozart’s Requiem Lacrimosa: I happen to like this piece of music (I actually listen to the whole piece, not just the one track on repeat like some people), but I’m going to be giving it a break while I contemplate the complete translation into English. Give me a break, please!• Rodin’s The Kiss, which “Julia had not purchased a replica of it when she visited Musée Rodin in Paris because she found it too arousing.” …ugh…followed by a vocabulary lesson in French on the usage of the word baiser and it’s double meaning of “to kiss” or “to fuck,” which probably made her ill and had to rush off to the ladies' room. This chick is so frigid, I swear.• Freaking Beowolf!!• Laphroaig: “a single malt Scotch whiskey” with just a drop or two of spring water to “open up the taste.” She should have known that with all her wine swishing capabilities. • One paragraph: “My family is like a Dickensian novel, Julia. No, it’s worse.” – I agree, this could get much worse, wait for it – “We’re a twisted mix of Arthur Miller and John Steinbeck, with a bit of Dostoyevky and Tolstoy thrown in.” - Oh ga! She didn't! But wait, we're not done!• Three Thomas Hardy references occurring in the following paragraph: Mayor of Casterbridge, Tess of the D’Urbervilles, and Jude the Obscure (Oh, is that who wrote this book?)• Hem’s Rabbit Songs featuring the eternal hit, Half Acre• Complete 1st stanza from John Donne’sThe Flea. I actually had to look up the name for this one since the author did not provide it for once.• “Gabriel liked it because they sold a particular kind of Trappist Ale that he preferred, Chimay Première, and it pleased him to have pizza in the Neapolitan style to pair with that beer.” Holy shit, you have got to be kidding. It would please me if you would just eat the damn pizza. It's not polite to swish your beer in public. And please don't ask me what was going on with that lambskin rug right after this. I tried not to look.• The ongoing references to Héloïse and Abelard (which I just kept picturing Big Bird’s cousin Abelardo on the Mexican Sesame Street. I think I know something more obscure than the author. Wooopeee!)• Edith Piaf’s La Vie en Rose <-- I am so sorry Ms. Piaf to drag you into this!• Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin vintage 2002: I think my nose just turned up an inch.• You and Me by Matthew Barber, who?• Far Far by Yael Naim. Apparently I’m not playing along; 67 other people highlighted this part of the book. I am not one of them.• "Hands of the Precious, Gollum.” • Buena Vista Social Club• All the Pretty Faces by The Killers, preceded by two shots of that cheap tequila.• Prospero’s Speech by Loreena McKennitt: I’m really out of it on this one and the 113 people who highlighted this passage.• da Vinci’s La Scapigliata This is really beginning to give me a headache.…and the list goes on and on and on and on… My Concluding Thoughts”She’s been broken, you jackass.” Sister Rachel to Brother Gabriel. And what, may you ask was our dear Julianne so broken about? The answer is something so incredibly lame it doesn’t even warrant repeating and would, in fact, ruin what little suspense this book contains.There is nothing healthy to be learned from this book unless you include the prologue where Beatrice leaves Dante standing on the road like a fool. If your ideal future life involves codependency and psychological abuse, please, be my guest, read this book and add to the rave reviews it has received thus far. It has most assuredly not gained any esteem from me..

Bestseller Books Gabriel's Inferno 2.5 starsI'm almost afraid to write a review, because this book is apparently universally loved ... and I definitely - obviously - did not feel the same way. I was so looking forward to the book and love pairings of a dark and tortured hero with a sweet and innocent heroine. Reynard definitely delivered on that last count - far, far too much: Julia was put up on a pedestal - and for reasons that I'm not sure warrant her being put there - and everything else was evil and dark and sinful.{ Praise }Gabriel was a very interesting character and for the first ~2/3 of the book I really liked him. He was a total a-hole at the beginning - wanted to slap him upside the head a few times - but it was fun watching him then immediately after do something in a gruff off-handed manner to make up for it. There was definite darkness to the character and I was really looking forward to exploring and unraveling that.I liked their relationship in maybe the 3rd fifth of the book and I really enjoyed their class ... discussion. The chemistry between them was surprisingly good and the kisses - especially that first one! *sigh* - were pretty sizzling. And before he got far too sickly sweet (see #5 below) I loved how tender and caring Gabriel was with her.{ General Criticism }I'm going to get these things out of the way, because the rest is all about my main issue with the book:(1) The POV switching was very, very odd and not at all smooth. It would switch between paragraphs - sometimes even between sentences - from Julia to Gabriel to the waiter at their table. It was confusing at times.(2) Paul drove me nutso. Absolutely 100% nutso. He and Julia probably should be together, with their sickening sweetness. He was ready to practically sacrifice his life for her within a few minutes of speaking with her and he could not stop calling her Rabbit every 5 seconds.(3) The ending is unbelievably rushed and not only that, but we're given a definite hint before then that there are going to be repercussions for something ... and then nothing happens. Very weird.(4) The whole thing about Beatrice-Dante and Julia-Gabriel became overused and their entire first encounter is difficult to believe, in the sense that I don't think either of them would have acted that way. All way too teenage-perfect and unreal.(5) The last third of the book is so sappy and corny. Gabriel and Julia are way, way, WAY too sweet all the time - to the point of not being at all enjoyable. I wanted to scream, Enough already! Go carve your names into a tree, get those matching necklaces with half of a heart, and exchange promise rings. IMO, it got to be so over the top. (I know, you couldn't tell I thought that).(6) The author crossed the point of subtly showing us that he knows his stuff (Dante, history, music, etc.) and went into the area of making us feel like he was trying to prove it { My Main Objection }I was looking forward to her character, because I love shy, wallflower-type heroines, but by the end of the book, Julia / Julianne / Beatrice / whatever was really driving me nuts. Julia was far, far too "innocent" and we hear constantly - CONSTANTLY - about her purity and innocence. She's naive and perfect and beautiful and stands on a pedestal and is light personified and on and on and on. She was absolutely "perfect" and therefore, to me at least, absolutely boring.Even though she's supposed to be this angel of utter perfection (don't even want to county how many times she is referred to as such), the truth is I did not find her perfect at all. For the middle of the book, I found her to be very judgmental and intolerant. Also, at one point she says that has "unfortunately" been hit on by women before and it came off sounding a little homophobic. Interesting note: the only two bisexual women in the book - or at least, women who are open to sleeping with another woman - are evil / mean ... hmmm.I hated that Gabriel is supposed to be this horrible, dark, tortured guy who has done all these bad things and because he is so sinful and unforgivable, he has to beg Julia to forgive him and love him anyway - even though he doesn't deserve it, which we hear over and over and OVER again - so that he can bask in her light, blah di blah di blah.I hated that there's this sense Gabriel can't fully disclose things to her about his past because she's too innocent and fragile. That she's scared of his darkness and he has to protect her from it and doesn't want to pollute or corrupt her by even telling her about it. I hated that her reaction to any type of variation in the bedroom is one of horror and that we're told through both of them that making love has to be tender and gentle and anything else is degrading and wrong and immoral.I know that she is a virgin and she's been through a bad relationship previously, but to me that didn't equal an explanation for what we're told. Which is that using the word "f*cking" for having sex is a capital sin. That having had troubles and made mistakes means you're stuck in sin and destined for hell and darkness until, if you're lucky, you get to go into the light and be with an apparently perfect (but really not so much) angel in human form. That having a one night stand is the worst thing on earth. That lust is evil and shameful and that artistic but erotic art is disgusting. That a woman being on her knees is offensive - and not even only in the mind-in-the-gutter sense (though that as well) but just in general, i.e. you're picking something up that you dropped (I kid you not).Now, before anyone attacks me and accuses me of being some sex maniac who hates virgin heroines, let me tell you that while Julia is a 23-year-old virgin, I'm a 25-year-old one, and that already at the beginning of the book she has more experience in this department than I do. Okay? So this is not a case of me disliking this book because virginity and innocence are glorified and I feel personally attacked.{ Bottom Line }This book was not for me and I won't be picking up the sequel. Julia is boringly "innocent" (don't even think that's the proper term), the book feels a little preachy and a lot judgmental, and the last third of the book was so corny / sappy / sweet that I had to stop myself from skimming.(Written August 16, 2011)

  • Let s set aside the unethical practices that lead to this book aka Twilight Fan Fiction being published and just focus on the story This is a giant turd nugget of misogyny wrapped in romance stereotypes and sprinkled with the most basic understanding of classic literature No literally, if you read Dante s Inferno for Dummies you will walk away with a better comprehension of that classic work than the author of this humongous joke of a novel.The sad part is the author is skilled at manipulating r [...]

  • Once again, I dislike the book everyone else obviously loves First of all and I NEVER thought I d say this about a book it is too long It would be fine if it had action driven plot, but for a story like this I think that reducing the number of pages would be a significant improvement This way, I had a feeling that I was reading the same thing over and over again every encounter between Gabriel and Julia looked almost exactly the same like the previous one It just dragged on and on and I was seri [...]
