[Book Watch] The Name of the Rose - follow up

Finally done with a monster of the book - 500 odd pages with the author's post script.

The book, as much of a mystery it promised to be, it invariably petered out. It ended up trying to tackle the bigger issue of state vs church during the 14th century and whether 'laughter' is a sin.

Even though it had some delectable intelligent passages, as a whole, it was quite a disappointment from the 'mystery' aspect.

The author comes clean in the postscript talking about, how he knew, it would never be able to satisfy a mystery lover. He also talks about various other topics of writing novels etc.

Overall rating: 3 out of 5
