Cool beans! Just picked up Umberto Eco's THE NAME OF THE ROSE for Kindle, on sale from $7.99 and going for $2.99. Can't beat that! Eco is a master and a genius that seems to know everything about everything.
THE NAME OF THE ROSE on sale here!
One of my greatest influences in writing the history section for my novel PUZZLEMAN was Eco's FOUCAULT'S PENDULUM. Unbelievable, complex work of history written as fiction. His THE ISLAND OF THE DAY BEFORE is another deep and complex mind blower. Great stuff! Although I'll admit, not for everyone. You better be ready to use your brain. lol
