The Prague Cemetery - Umberto Eco I hate not finishing a book, but life it too short, and there's too much to read, to waste time on the ones that just don't click. Its entirely possible that this is a wonderful book, but after 100+ pages, it still fails to hook my imagination, and I'm finding it very tiresome to slog through. Another review mentions that it may be an issue of and Italian writer, writing for an Italian audience for whom the historical background is more familiar, and I'm willing to consider that as a source of the problem, but who knows? I have, previously, loved everything by Eco that I have read, so it is a shock to find this one so unreadable, for whatever reason.

I'm breaking up with this book. Umberto, its not you, its me....
