I'm quite a big fan of Eco, having all of his fiction. I enjoyed Focualt's Pendulum and of course Name of The Rose, which I thought was brilliant. If you have not seen the film starring Sean Connery you should. It's very good. I will be interested to read your thoughts on this novel...
Also his non-fiction essays are amongst some of the best going around by an author today. A real intellect.
