Has anyone read anything by Umberto Eco?

So far I've read The Name of the Rose, and Foucault's Pendulum. They were both really good, probably two of the best books I've ever read. I'm also currently reading The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana.

Foucault's Pendulum kicked butt. The original Davinci code, as it were. I really enjoy Eco's writing style.

Aw c'mon, any other Umberto Eco fans out there? Confused

I've recently purchased Baudolino, but I haven't read through much of it yet.

I read The Name of the Rose some time ago. I'm a sucker for Sherlock Holmes pastiches Pleased .

Baudolino is on my shelf, but I haven't gotten engaged in it yet.

I only know his name; I remember a teacher who told about a book by Umberto Eco (I don't remember the title) ; it was in the logic and argumentation cursus. Eco spoke about nuances in the speach ..... it was time ago. i don't remember well sorry.
