I am a long time fan of Eco's work and eagerly looked forward to the English translation of The Prague Cemetery. After reading a little more than half of the book however, I put it aside--something I rarely do. I found the split narrative fascinating and the various conspiracy theories more than compelling, but I couldn't get past the vitriol that dominated the book. No one escaped the wrath and ridicule of Simonini--not the Italians, the Catholics, the Russians, the Germans or the French--and least of all the Jews, the object of his most abusive ramblings. While intellectually I can appreciate Eco's attempt to magnify the prejudice, hatred and distrust that arose in Europe in the 19th century and later led to two world wars, I found his language and tone personally too offensive to continue reading.
