The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco

Into the Wild

Read The Name of the Rose Online Free - The year is 1327. Franciscans in a wealthy Italian abbey are suspected of heresy, and Brother William of Baskerville arrives to investigate. When his delicate mission is suddenly overshadowed by seven bizarre deaths, Brother William turns detective. His tools are the logic of Aristotle, the theology of Aquinas, the empirical insights of Roger Bacon - all sharpened to a glistening edge by wry humor and a ferocious curiosity. He collects evidence, deciphers secret symbols and coded manuscripts, and digs into the eerie labyrinth of the abbey, where "the most interesting things happen at night."

Eco's writing is so infectious, lively, and likeable that I thought it appropriate to pen my review in his style. 1. In which I, as reader, feel used. Yes, I'm almost certain Eco wrote this thing for the sole purpose of informing us of how knowledgeable he is of the finer points of monastic orders,...

إكتب يا أدســو، إكـتب، فمن يكتب لـن يموت أبدا فقد يأتي يوما ما أحدهم ليقلده ويزيد عليه بعضا من غوايات عزازيله الفاسقة ومذكرات أدسو في "أســم الــوردة" ورحلته مع الراهب غوليالمو ذو الماضي المعقد بذلك الدير الرهيب هي عملا مزخما مليئا بالتفاصيل ,وبالرغم من أن الأحداث في القرن الرابع عشر، الا انك ستشعر...

إن كنت ستقرأ إسم الوردة فاترك خيالك وراءك فأنت بكل تأكيد لست بحاجة إليه فهنا ستجد دقائق الأشياء تتجلى وكل تفصيلة صغيرة تتوهج أمامك لست بحاجة لتخيل شكل الغرفة أو حجم المتاهة أنت بحاجة لعقلك واعٍ ولكل ما تحمل من حنكة لكي تحاول أن تفهم عند تتمة القراءة ما مدى رمزية المتاهة تلك وما هي التأويلات التي يمكنن...

This is one of those rare near-perfect books that crosses through many genres and could be universally acclaimed. There are dozens of great reviews on here already, but this book struck me as so profound that I felt I needed to briefly put down my own thoughts. I could not bring myself to put thi...

Go ahead, throw your tomatoes at me! I know that in general this book is loved. Many count it amongst their favorites. I found it very dull and very boring. I had an extremely hard time staying interested in the story, which is weird for me and mystery/suspense stories. Never have I fought so hard...

"The Name of the Rose" is not a book to be picked up lightly with the expectation that you, the reader, are about to embark on a traditional work of historical fiction. Umberto Eco expects much from the reader of this book. Almost immediately the unsuspecting reader will find himself dropped into...

If I had to spend a year on a desert island and was only allowed to take one book, this would be it. At the time of its publication, one reviewer described `The Name of the Rose' as "a book about everything". At first glance, it may seem to be a book largely about obscure Fourteenth Century relig...

الكتب لم توضع كي نؤمن بما تقوله ولكن كي نتحرّى فيها، لا يجب أن نتساءل أمام كتاب ماذا يقول ولكن ماذا يريد أن يقول. كي تعرف ما يقول كتاب يجب أن تقرأ كتبًا أخرى. هناك نوعان من الأعمال المرهقة؛ الأول أمقته بشدة وأشعر أثناء قراءته بملل لا ينتهي وتشتت يدفعني لاحتمالهما واجب إنهاء الكتاب. يعتصرني حتى ال...

Forget Christopher Hitchens. Away with that Richard Doggins guy. For a truly penetrating look at religion and atheism, Umberto Eco, he da man. The Name of the Rose is a profoundly nihilistic book. It is ostensibly a book about a murder mystery: A man, a monk rather, Brother William, arrives with...
