The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco

If the outside of this book is any indication - this is a really boring book.  All I was looking for was a murder mystery.  Something light.  A quick easy read.  Ok, this sounds good.  Its about a bunch of monks getting killed in a monastery.  I was thinking Redwall meets The Da Vinci Code meets The Agony and the Ecstasy.  Wrong.

Easily one of the most boring books I've ever read.  Instead of reading drama and suspense, I was reading about 14th century Catholic doctrine.  Just to save you the pain of actually reading this book.  The library burns down in the end.  Done.

  1. Umberto Eco is one of my favorite writers!!!! I am so happy to find that someone appreciates him too! My favorite is the Focult Pendulum.
