New Eco

Alright, so a bit of personal interest then. I worked hard the last two weeks and I decided to treat myself to a copy of the latest novel by Umberto Eco. I am a big fan of his two early novels, In The Name Of The Rose and Foucault’s Pendulum, especially the latter is an absolute favorite of mine. The best novel to explain Sir Karl Popper’s Poverty Of Historicism I think. His later novels were fine, but the new one, The Cemetery of Prague, seems to me more up my alley of secret societies, religious nutcases and such like. I started today, leaving work for a day, and so far I quite enjoy it. Back to reading now (oh, in Dutch of course!)
