       Nice to see Eco getting some love.  Where is Focault's Pendulum though?  Anyway the name of the rose is a great book.  Please dont be turned off by the christian slater movie that was made from this wonderful text.  I know it is cliche but the book is a whole hell of a lot better than the movie. 

       Now I want to appologize to any Eco fans for what Im about to say.... If  you like the da vinci code you will love this book.  Not that this is in the same ball park as dan brown but I think it was this book that made it possible for dan brown even to exist.  Dan brown books are like a copy of a copy of this book. 

       Not a must read, but a very entertaining read.  I recommend highly.
