Foucault's Pendulum is like the Producers except instead of a fake musical becoming a huge success to the ruination of the producers, it's a fake conspiracy becoming a real conspiracy to the ruination of its inventors.

I started trying to read The Name of the Rose and it was way too deep way too fast for me. I don't think I can handle Eco's serious novels. <.<

@InspectorCaracal Oh, the Eco book! I was thinking about the actual device. "wait what how could you make a conspiracy out of that"

@noelle oh dang I can't remember when I read it

I keep meaning to re-read it, ever since The DaVinci Code was a monumental disappointment.

@InspectorCaracal @noelle IIRC Eco said (on comparisons to The Da Vinci Code) that FP wasn't *like* tDVC, it was *about* tDVC

@nev @noelle That's extremely accurate, honestly.

I was just hoping The DaVinci Code would be more like FP, when I heard about it. >.>
