Unfortunately it takes nearly pages to get to the plot, and then it doesn’t actually get interesting until about page Not much of it is devoted to plot, while there is some characterization it gets lost in the lectures, and really it was fucking boring.

Let me say that again I’ve previously read two of Eco’s books, his superb The Name of the Rose and the nearly equally fantastic The Island of the Day Before so I honestly didn’t think that Foucault’s Pendulum would be as much of a headache to wade through as it was, but whether because I just picked it up dj the wrong time or simply don’t know enough about the subject matter, I submit that the book has me beat DH read about 70pgs; he has since moved on to dii things.
