Book: Baudolino

Author: Umberto Eco

Details: (c) 2000 RCS Libri SpA; Pub Vintage 2003; translated William Weaver 2002; ISBN 0-099-42239-5

Verdict: Baudolino is great fun.

Reasons for reading it: I liked The name of the Rose enough to give Eco another try, even though I didn't get on too well with Foucault's Pendulum.

How it came into my hands: One of my more successful charity shop raids, I think in Oxford but it might have been in Southampton. In any case I was with hatam_soferet who is one of my favourite people to go book hunting with. And the Vintage edition is rather nice, as it happens.
