10 out of 10

Well if you haven't read this one already.... stand in the corner and think about what you have done! I found this copy at the bookstall at my local primary school's fete and decided to grab it to share with the world - there must be SOMEONE out there who hasn't read this classic work!

For those of you who would like to know more....

from the Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature
"Novel by Umberto Eco, published in Italian as Il nome della rosa in 1980. Although the work stands on its own as a murder mystery, it is more accurately seen as a questioning of "truth" from theological, philosophical, scholarly, and historical perspectives. The story centers on William of Baskerville, a 50-year-old monk who is sent to investigate a death at a Benedictine monastery. During his search, several other monks are killed in a bizarre pattern that reflects the Book of Revelation. Highly rational, Baskerville meets his nemesis in Jorge of Burgos, a doctrinaire blind monk determined to destroy heresy at any cost."
