Samenvatting

Sent to Hell for typical teenage misdemeanours, Conor is surprised to find that it's not all pitchforks and leaping flames. But an eternity in a fusty cave full of philosophy books and obscure classical music is actually worse. Then Conor realizes that his personal version of Hell might be someone else's idea of Heaven - and vice versa. He sets out on a filthy, funny and forbidden journey to search for his opposite number, accompanied by his repulsive pet dog, a depressed cross-dressing Viking and a stumpy devil called Clarence. What he sees is disgusting and what he discovers is shocking, but oddly enough Conor learns a hell of a lot about life - now that he's dead!

Recensie(s)

Anthony McGowan made a hilarious debut with Hellbent, a modern take on Dante which manages to mix existentialist and determinist philosophy with quite surprising amounts of poo -- Anthony Horowitz Sunday Telegraph A wisecracking helterskelter ... Real boys' stuff ... but watch out for a twist in the novel's devilish tail -- Hepzibah Anderson Observer A brilliantly nauseating thriller ... It is a devilishly funny, clever and moving novel -- Amanda Craig The Times Dante for beginners with a serious moral message -- Geraldine Brennan TES Every writer hates to hear the words stunning new talent applied to someone else, but in the case of Anthony McGowan nothing else will do -- Meg Rosoff
