I have read many Umberto Eco works - as well as some of his non-fiction, but this book affected me particulalrly due to the location, as my father was on Christmas Island (supposedly discovered Christmas day but of course they hadn't realised they'd crossed the date line) during the British hydrogen bomb tests ..

Unfortunately, I found this book completely unreadable and abandoned it after a valiant attempt at getting through the first 50 pages (I have a personal rule that any book should be given 50 pages of benefit-of-the-doubt).
Interestingly, I have met several people who have attempted to read the book (usually because they enjoyed The Name of the Rose), but none of them were able to finish this one.
