Butler writes a "Dante’s Inferno" for the modern man. His Hell is a reflection of the hundreds of little hells we inflict on ourselves and each other everyday. He is inventive and dryly witty.

WOW.
This is one hell of a book, and I don't intend the pun.
Butler presents Hell in such wit and graceful storytelling with plenty of cultural and historical references to keep the reader grinning.
The ending is perfect (I won't spoil it); it paints a terrific portrait of the human soul.
Fun fact I came across: the author put himself in the book as a nameless character on page 35. The reference text can be faintly seen on the computer screen in the author's photo inside the back cover where Butler carries a knowingly, devilish hint of a smile.
