Book: Foucault's Pendulum

Author: Umberto Eco

Details: Trans William Weaver; (C) 1988 Gruppo Editoriale Fabbri Bompiani; Translation (c) 1989 Harcourt Brace Jovanovich Inc; Pub Ballantine Books 1990; ISBN 0-345-36875-4

Verdict: Foucault's Pendulum is mixed; some interesting stuff but overly dense.

Reasons for reading it: I'd been meaning to read Foucault's Pendulum for absolutely ages, because it sounded like the kind of book that I'd really get on with. And various people have raved about it, including pseudomonas and neonchameleon.

How it came into my hands: A really lovely second hand book stall in a market in Berkeley.
