    This is a tough read, as the style is dense, and the dialogue peppered with Latin- it is set in a 12C monastery after all, and the majority of people there are learned monks.But, keep going. It's a fascinating and detailed book, full of twists and turns, as is the library at the centre of the who-dun-it. Was hugely talked about when first published, and I remember reading it ages ago, but it's been good to revisit.

    This book had several layers to it; it is a historical look at the politics and machinations of the Church and State and the struggles of the various religious Orders in the 14th century and before; it was a very descriptive narrative told by an old man of a time when he was a young novice. So I found it a bit hard going as I am not a "scholar". However I stuck it out because it was also a very clever "whodunit" following various murders in an Abbey investigated by a Monk, William, who is academic and wise. The narrator was William's novice. So definitely not light reading.

    If you read the negative reviews of this book you will variously encounter the following:"...I didn't actually finish the book"...."I have now attempted to read it twice, and each time it has thwarted me"..."It is quite difficult to get into and, eventually you put it aside"..."I found I could not read further than the first two hundred pages"...etc etc etc etc.Yes, it's over 500 pages but if you can't manage that then frankly you need to get back to Harry Potter & the Philosopher's Stone!!The writing is great, as is the murder mystery plot which is set against the 14th century background of a papacy determined to stay rich & powerful in the face of challenge from religious orders like the Franciscans who embrace poverty & charity (thereby incurring the wrath of the inquisition!!).I was inspired to check out many of the book's references to, for example, the Fraticelli & the Minorites which confirmed that the narrative is well and truly grounded in historical fact - something which is further borne out by the fact that many of the named characters can be found in the pages of Wikipedia.Some reviewers seem to resent having to read about this historic background because they want a nice straightforward 'whodunit' - instead they should embrace the detail because without it the book would be a greatly diminished work.
