review 1: :) Một buổi đối thoại tuyệt vời của hai học giả, những người chơi sách có tiếng. Chỉ đọc cuốn sách này thôi mà đã có bao nhiêu điều muốn tìm hiểu thêm. Quả là "tửu phùng tri kỷ thiên bôi thiếu, ý bất tâm đầu bán cú đa". Ngồi nghe 2 ngài này chém gió chắc cả ngày vẫn không thấy ch...
The Infinity of Lists (2009)
language
English
3.97 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: A series of meditations on the character of different sorts of lists, especially those that appear in literature and art, Eco's rich illustrative excerpts are more substantial than his own prose. Some of these lists are wonderful, but lists aren't necessarily the most engaging g...
Come si fa una tesi di laurea: le materie umanistiche (1977)
language
English

review 1: I punti di forza di questo "agile volumetto" (cit.) sono sicuramente il fornire un metodo di lavoro serio e una struttura che, se seguita, non fa perdere tempo allo studente sotto tesi. Ottima la parte della citazione bibliografica e le note a piè di pagina. Allora perché solo 3 ...
Inventing the Enemy: Essays (2011)
language
English
3.69 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: As the title says, 'essays' - totally unrelated to one another. Some essays are good (like the title essay, which the author admits the publisher choose on purpose as the book title). Some essays, not so good. Most are speeches translated out of the original Italian. The reader d...

review 1: كان يمكن لهذه الرواية أن تكون أفضل لكن كثرة الاحداث والشخصيات أفسدت استمتاعي بفكرة الرواية وأسلوب العرضالاقحام الكبير للتفاصيل التاريخية والشخصيات وتحري الدقة التاريخية أفسدت الرواية ..تبقى محاولة الكاتب لكتابة رواية حول ما وراء الماسونية و" المؤامرة" محاولة عبقرية والأسلوب السرد...

review 1: Ļoti informatīva, patīkami un saskanīgi sakārtota. Grāmatā stāstīts par sarakstu veidošanas un tulkošanas metodēm cauri gadsimtiem literatūrā un mākslā sākot no pirmajiem rakstītajiem avotiem, turpinot ar centieniem veidot pirmās vārdnīcas (suns - visiem zināms dzīvnieks) un enci...

review 1: Una volta fatta la tara all'antisemitismo e all'odio verso i gesuiti, è un libro interessante, che affronta il problema della storicità di un evento secondo il punto di vista di un falsario.La storia principale riguarda la creazione dei Protocolli dei Savi di Sion, documenti prov...

review 1: Hardly know where to begin with this. There is no question that Eco is insanely intelligent and a great prose writer. The problem for me is the guy has a tough time just telling a story. The book is so packed with historical detail, characters coming and going, etc. that there is...
