Book Review: Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco - Reviewed by (18 May 2011)

Don't let the heavy writing style put you off persisting with this book. You'll be rewarded by a storyline full of twists that may frustrate you at times but the impact will stay with you. The story is written in the descriptive, atmostpheric manner that Umberto Eco is known for. It's not for times when you need a gentle, mind-numbing read, this is a book you need to tackle when you have the time and headspace.
