Escape From Hell May 17, 2009
Allen Carpenter tells his story of how he lost Rosemary Bennet, to Sylvia Plath a tree in the Seventh Circle, the Wood of Suicides. Mussolini has escaped from Hell, and Allen is taking up his charge to get as many souls as possible out of Hell, which is a lot harder than how it sounds. He looses Rosemary, an assistant deputy prosecutor when she was alive in New Orleans, to the Administrative Center of Hell, where they find out that everyone in Hell will have a new trial! Throughout the group’s journey to the bottom of Hell, Niven and Pournelle give a better description than what was provided in “Inferno”, and he meets some of the same people that he ran into, in “Inferno”. Carpenter’s true question as he travels is, is it justice for a sinner to suffer punishment for all of eternity? Because, some do learn their lesson and repent. And, their reward is their will to escape from hell!
