    "Umberto Eco has to be one of my favorite authors. Having written many internationally acclaimed books, he is a powerhouse in the literary community. In my honest opinion, I believe The Name of the Rose to be his best work. It is beautifully written with moments that tug at your heart. It is not an easy read, and I find myself stopping many times only to pick it back up to find out more about William of Baskerville. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is a fan of Umberto. "

    "The Name of the Rose actually received much better reviews. This title was published two years after The Island of the Day Before, and has sold many more copies than the later."

    "Art and Beauty in the Middle Ages combines the notions of the age, time and day into a fun book about art. Everything to the time had a mysterious and mystical meaning. It was a world coming into its own. It was on the cusp of an awakening in intelligence and brilliance. And it was transcribed through their understanding of the beauty of art."

    "Only one work was given in the solution. It would have been more proper for Chronicles of a Liquid Society as well as The Prague Cemetery to be included."

    "I love reading new books. One of my favorite authors is Umberto Eco. The book On Literature was one of his finest works. It was translated from Italian and features some great essays. It really felt natural for the most part."

    "At first, I had trouble getting into this novel, but once I realized that the narrator is a stroke victim trying to reconstruct his memories and figure out who he is, it was easy to float in the swim of things. His memory is a wild jumble of all the novels, comic books, songs, and movies from his childhood. The illustrations in this book are just beautiful. This was very different and unique"

    " My physics teacher would fix me with his twinkling gaze and intone, “Truth is stranger than fiction.” He was right, and not only about the behavior of elementary particles."
