Eco s writing is so infectious lively and likeable that I thought it appropriate to pen my review in his style1 In which I as reader feel usedYes I m almost certain Eco wrote this thing for the sole purpose of informing us of how knowledgeable he is of the finer points of monastic orders book trivia and medieval philosophy Knowing most would not put up with this crap for 500 pages he wisely chose to interrupt his many digressions on poverty heretics whether or not Jesus laughed Aristotle architecture etc with an amateurish mystery plot It s pedantry disguised as fiction I ve been used 2 In which the pace sucksJust when you thought it was getting interesting just when the plot is getting meatier and it grabs your attention here comes a dissertation or a long drawn description of doors churches parchments beasts characters that are totally irrelevant to the plot and backstories that do nothing to shed light on the events You must often wait a chapter or two to get back to the mystery that drove you to read this thing in the first place Do yourself a favor and uit after he has solved his first mystery page 253 In which its heavy handedness is offensiveLurk around bookworms long enough and you re bound to find some pompous pseudo intellectual enraptured by the rich textured yet subtle literary clues so artfully crafted into this piece You mean to tell me that Jorge De Burgos the blind monk is actually a nod to Jorge Luis Borges the blind Argentinian writer Whaaat So cleverI m sure the late Borges heard this face palmed and then turned in his graveEDIT I have been duly informed perhaps by the type referenced above that Borges was actually alive when this work was published He died shortly thereafter4 In which the plot fails to deliverProvided you made it as far as the end all in hopes of finding a conclusion so stellar as to redeem the drudgery that preceded it what one is most likely to find is disappointment Most by the time they get there will already know who the culprit is and given the setting and the tools the protagonists are carrying what will happen in the final scene Is it a fantastic twist A conspiracy centuries in the making No Just lunatic ravings akin to the ones that drove Eco to romanticize about love lust knowledge etc

This is one of those rare near perfect books that crosses through many genres and could be universally acclaimed There are dozens of great reviews on here already but this book struck me as so profound that I felt I needed to briefly put down my own thoughts I could not bring myself to put this down and it was always a battle to not skip work and continue reading in the parking lot after lunch break Eco crafts a novel that could be labeled as historical fiction mystery theology and philosophy metafiction a plot boiler literature and many others hell there s even a bit of love and sex thrown in and of multiple sexual orientations He essentially takes Sherlock Holmes and Watson and recasts them as monks in a 1300 s Abbey where murder and theological debates appear around every corner The two main plots the murder mystery and the religious debates weave together effortlessly each feeding off each other as the tensions rise and the plot thickensThis is no simple plot driven thriller however Eco brings a tome of medieval and christian history to the table working it as a period piece and educates the reader as well as entertains This has drawn a lot of comparisons to works such as Dan Brown s Da Vince Code yet Eco surpasses Brown in almost every category This book truly deserve to be considered literature as there is much to it than a history and research tossed into a plot Eco can spit prose with the best of them and he will keep your dictionary close at hand His character s speech is all believable and what fascinated me the most was how expertly he wrote the theological arguments between the Abbey occupants Through these characters many which were real people he presents believable and often fiery multifaceted discussions on a range of topics such as heretics vows of poverty and gospel interpretations Eco has a vast knowledge of medieval studies and it shows He is also a professor of semiotics which play a critical role in this novel William s method of deduction hinges on his ability to read the signs in the world around him He carefully crafts syllogisms which brought me back to my logic and reasoning courses at MSU to produce his theories Eco puts his best foot forward and gives the reader a good introduction to his own fields of study with Rose However he also throws in the loophole that the world may not be comprised of any inherent meaning and that it is senseless to try to apply meaning to randomness This could present uiet a dilemma for a monk who s life draws meaning from the gospelsPerhaps the most exciting aspect of this novel was that it was a book about books The whole novel spins around several texts such as Aristotle and Revelations but is made up of other books He even draws the readers attention to this as William explains to Adso how the contents of one book can be discerned by reading other books He strings together hefty allusions to other medieval texts and also to one of Eco s and one of my own personal favorite authors Jorge Luis Borges This novel is saturated with allusions to Borges works there is even a blind librarian much like the real Borges named Jorge of Burgos I would highly recommend picking up a copy of his collected fictions simply because it is a phenomenal read and to read selected stories such as The Library of Babel simultaneously with The Name of the Rose as Eco drew much of his inspiration for this book from Borges story The scenes in the labyrinthine library of the abbey are gold I wanted to get lost with William and Adso as they flipped through great works together while trying to make sense of their obfuscating surroundings Eco s use of metafiction greatly adds to this novel as an acute reading will show Eco is often talking about the book itself than the actual plot with his two leads He also leaves in plenty of untranslated Latin while having William conclude that true scholars must first master languages and to key in on the idea that this book was a text found and translated by the character of Eco He leaves some detective work for the reader and I thank him for thatYou really need to read this book There are scant few people who would not find something of interest within it s pages It is a deep dense ocean of a novel and not a little plot driven pool to be waded through just for enjoyment but with just a little effort it will provide a fountain of enjoyment That was a weird out of place and senseless string of water metaphors but you get the idea Easily a 55
