Foucault’s Pendulum

I recently finished reading Foucault’s Pendulum by Umberto Eco. It did not live up to my expectations. It’s about these book editors who are working on a publishing house that focuses on hermetica and conspiracy theory. The editors play this game called The Plan, where they make up their own conspiracy weaving all the theories together. The Plan backfires on one of them, when out of pride, he brags about it to the wrong guy.

In order to understand this book, you need to know a bit about the Templar knights, have read Holy Blood Holy Grail and be familiar with Hermetic and Qabalistic principals.

It’s not a bad book, it’s just not what I was expecting. I expected a faster pace. Oh, and the first few chapters, you’re going to be looking up A LOT of words.
