really liked it
Read in May, 2010

I wouldn't say this is the best book ever (despite my love for the superlative, I wouldn't say that usually anyway). It is, however, a really amusing collection of stories, and the 3 that stand out for me are good enough to make me say I really liked it. I especially like the one replacing a driver's license in Milan, since that is where I am living at the time of reading it. I also liked his discussion of the academic department, and a few others that I have now forgotten. I skipped over some of the weirder ones, but maybe one day I will look at it again. Anyway, very enjoyable to read, although not "great" in terms of importance. But it made me want to be friends with Mr. Eco...
