Lauren Smith Curious to know what you think of this one Bill. I started it a while back because I thought the plot sounded amazing, but I only got about a third of the way through at most. I got bogged down with all the Italian pop culture he was going through.

Bill Tucker Yes...the last 300 pages have been more than a little tedious. I may not finish it, or at least put off finishing it until a later date. The plot is unique, and such a departure from his other works...particularly "The Name of the Rose" and "Baudolino"...both of which I recommend highly if you haven't already read them.
