I finished listening to Purgatory by Dante  Alighieri. It is the second book of the Divine Comedy. I got this book through RB Digital which is like Overdrive. It is through my local library as well. But it uses Windows Media files so I had to convert them through Real Player to get it on my Kindle. It is a different reader and he's much better than the reader of Inferno. And it has music at each chapter. I have decided to re-listen to Inferno with this same reader. Anyway, in this book, Dante and Virgil go to Purgatory. Purgatory is a mountain. He has to climb to the top. Dante learns what keeps the souls there which is love of other things. He also learns what love is. The ground of the mountain is full of death and wars. Dante has terrible dream of a woman who is very ugly and mean. Virgil does leave him at one point. Dante does reach the top where he finds the tree of Knowledge. He ends become pure so he can go into Paradise. I did like this book. I will be listening next (after re-listening to Inferno) Paradise by Dante  Alighieri.

I preferred Inferno when I read it, long time ago.
