I knew going in this one was going to be dense and honestly, I was okay with flexing my brain cells especially due to the high recommendations and ratings this book came with.
But, damn Four to five pages describing a statue that turns into a diabolical vision is not going to I don't even know what to say about this one. Four to five pages describing a statue that turns into a diabolical vision is not going to cut it. Eco is so focused on description that the story part gets completely lost. I hate having to wade through description and theological discussion just to have a nugget of progress in the mystery.
Life is too short for that shit. View 2 comments. From the hype over the years, I was expecting a skillfully plotted, tense thriller that I didn't want to put down. What I got instead was a plodding, slow-paced novel that over the course of many years I tried - and failed - to finish, never getting to that magic page mark.
This time, I forced myself to finish it, mostly because I'm trying to get my "to-read" shelf down to a reasonable number.
And what a slog it was. Eco doesn't seem to know what kind of novel he wanted to write. Historical treatise? Religious philosphy? Murder mystery?
Political thriller? It tried to be all of these and succeeded at none. The story really does work best for me when it focuses on the investigation of the murders.
We have mysterious monks, an abbey with secrets, and a forbidden, labyrinthine library whose keepers jealously guard the vast knowledge contained within. In between the "good parts" of the murder investigation, however, I was tortured by passages of apparently relevant, untranslated Latin that my 9th grade Latin classes couldn't help with he couldn't give us footnotes? Not to mention the absolutely random, pointless, what-the-hell-just-happened, relevant to absolutely nothing sex scene.
In his postscript, Eco defends his pacing by referring to these digressions as "arias", but please. In my admittedly limited experience with opera, doesn't an aria at least have something to do with advancing the story? Eco's "arias" grind the story to a screeching halt in order to expound on some totally unrelated topic, as if someone decided to interrupt "The Marriage of Figaro" with a three-hour lecture on the importance of the stirrup in mounted warfare.
His "arias" are more of a signal to send the audience on a long dinner break than to ooh and aah over the soprano's range.
I eventually found that the only way I could finish the book was to recognize the coming of a pointless tangent and just skip it. It's too bad; I rather liked former inquisitor-turned-travelling monk William. No more Eco for me - I've tried one other novel of his and met with similar results. I almost hate to throw it in the Goodwill pile because with Borders closing, my bookstore options are dwindling.
Damn you, Kindle! Nevertheless, there is no room in my library for books I will never open again. Here's hoping the next books on my list will deliver more! Al mismo tiempo ocurre un asesinato que parece estar relacionado con un cuarto secreto de la biblioteca y un misterioso libro. Bien, pasemos con lo que hace bien el libro: Los pasajes referentes al crimen son interesantes. Lo que hace mal para mi gusto: Tal vez porque ya estaba harta. El asesino, muy previsible.
Detalla cosas innecesarias: Fracasa en todo. Parece una enciclopedia en lugar de una novela. Fue una lectura muy aburrida, larga y poco interesante. Creo es un libro para que la gente se sienta inteligente ya que sigue la premisa: Si es aburrido y lento, debe ser bueno.
Pues yo digo no, no es bueno, solo es aburrido y malo, muy malo. Umberto Eco knows a lot about medieval Christianity.

I was determined not to add a third to that list. It's a weird compulsion, but I hate not finishing books. This one took me literally months to finish. It probably took so long because I was savoring every word. With this one, I was skipping and scanning like mad. And it still took months. The description - a murder mystery set in a 13th century monastery - appeals to me in all sorts of ways. But really, it's just a vehicle for the author to show off his knowledge of life in a 13th century monastery.
I can't stress that enough -UGH. About halfway through, I came to goodreads to see what other people thought. There are quite a few reviews that say something along the lines of "it was hard to get through the first part, but I'm glad I did because the ending was so good.
The ending is not "so good. Well, it was really good to shout "I'm finished with the book about the stupid monks!!! Unless you are sleepy. Then it might be useful to read a page or so. Couldn't make it halfway through.
Umberto Eco is a pompous jackass. The writing is terrible. It's impossible to make it through any plot even without 18 tales of history thrown in to make people feel smart. This is an intellectual's version of the DaVinci Code; exacerbating everything that was wrong with that book. Fuck this book was bad.

I don't want to come off as a dumb reader, so I'm going to give it 5 stars too, even if I didn't really understand a single point of the book".

I commend the profundity of his knowledge about semiotics and the monastic life but he clearly dismissed the whole sense of the plot.
The pace of his story was extremely tedious. Well, what can I expect from a story set in an abbey? And what's with the extensive lines of untranslated Latin? Did he really expect all of his readers to understand the ancient language? I love historical fiction.
However, Umberto Eco went over the top in coalescing his monastic knowledge, all in one plot, that the book rather appeared to spew out stupendous amounts of his ego. His goal was clearly not to entertain but to show off. The Name of the Rose Profound but not engaging. Well-informed but lacked wit. Oct 30, Franz B. Mi aspettavo grandi cose e invece mi sono trovata davanti ad un giallo banale e deludente in cui si capisce subito quale sia la conclusione.
In ogni caso poteva essere interessante, poteva.. In generale una noia assurda in cui l'autore non fa altro che dar sfoggio di se e della sua conoscenza.

Cuanta desilucion he tenido con el mismo, con este libro he comprobado que me importa un par de tres las historias de los monjes del siglo 15 y sus anos consecuentes por favor BC no mas monjes. Esta historia tiene tanta narrativa que para mi era sin importancia, que se me olvidaba en realidad que estaba haciendo Guillermo y Adso Creo que desde vi hace anos la pelicula protagonizada por Sean Connery, siempre quise leer este libro, el cual ya por sus anos y alabanzas ha llegado a ser un clasico.
Esta historia tiene tanta narrativa que para mi era sin importancia, que se me olvidaba en realidad que estaba haciendo Guillermo y Adso en la Abadia. Dio tantas vueltas que ya al final no te importaba quien era que estaba asesinando a los monjes. Y hablando del final, que mediocre. No se si fue que tampoco entendi el motivo por el cual de tanta secretismo en esta abadia.
Decidamente de mi parte, no lo recomiendo. Book can be summarised as such: I have vast knowledge on medieval philosophy, religion and monastic life! Let me show you!
This is a murder mystery! By the way, have I told you I know a shit ton on medieval book trivia. Here, let me show you… Another pages later… Right! Murder mystery! Another dead body! Hey, did I mention my superior knowledge on medieval Christianity? I couldn't finish this. Congratulations, Mr.
Eco, you have found an aspect of medieval history which does not interest me. Yes, I didn't think it was possible, but it turns out that endless theological debates from the Dark Ages simply don't hold my attention. Don't get me wrong, I both respect and enjoy your exacting attention to detail, especially the vivid descriptions of the abbey and its buildings. However, I simply can't take it when most of the dialogue is focused around divine retribution, apocalyptic foreshado Congratulations, Mr.
However, I simply can't take it when most of the dialogue is focused around divine retribution, apocalyptic foreshadowing, or the divine sanctioning of poverty. I made the mistake of borrowing this book from a friend, and felt obligated to read it through to the end.
I was also goaded along by hope of some kind of twist at the end, thinking that perhaps the ending would justify the rest of the book. There is no such ending, merely more of the same. I wish I had given it up earlier. This book is a killer. Eco takes 'verbose' to an entirely new level. I appreciate his dedication to the topic and the period in time of this book, but really?
Was all of that necessary? I feel like this book was written ALMOST for the express reason of seeing how many readers he could get to quit this book. Of my book club of 25 people, 3 read it. The rest of us gave up. We're definitely not the most well-read book club, but majority was two thumbs down. Sorry, Umberto! I do respect you as an au This book is a killer. I do respect you as an author, but this book is only for the select few who can read pages upon pages of description of what the inside of a 13th century monastery looks like.
This is the third Eco book I've tried, and third time's the charm. The charm being the final nail in the coffin. It's just And in this one, gah, that damn MONK, and his rambling descriptions.
Some books are just boring to some people. And for me, this book wasn't worth the struggle. It happens. And I don't have anything else to say. A book shouldn't be hard work. After reading glowing reviews I couldn't wait to read it.
El nombre de la rosa
Now I can't see why I bothered. Paragraphs lasting pages and pages and adding nothing to the story. I much prefer sitting down to read a Shakespeare tragedy. And why, you may ask did I finish it all? I could not help myself. A bit of an exaggeration in retrospect. But alas, I just had to get to the th page to find out if the secret to my life was potentially in here The end. Personalmente non sopporto questo intellettuale del potere, e i suoi libri mi confermano nella mia opinione, sopravvalutato.
