Summary: There is a series of murders at an Italian monastery. Our narrator is tasked with solving the murders.
Final thoughts: I couldn’t handle this book. Usually, I’ll give a book 50 pages before giving up, but I could barely handle 10 pages. The writing was so convoluted and boring. I didn’t even get to the point of the book before I gave up. Luckily I found an E author on my Kindle to make up for not reading this book.
Title comes from: Apparently there’s some big mystery as to why the book is called The Name of the Rose.
Reading challenges fulfilled: none since I didn’t finish
