I love the move The Name of the Rose it stars Sean Connery and Christian Slater in a medieval monastery that is both strange, familiar and very spooky. I can almost smell the scents in the movie the smoke, the mud, and the gore. It is a very gory movie.
I have tried a few times to read this book but I have never sat down with the goal in mind to finish it. This year no this month this book is my goal. The difficulty for me is not the story I love the idea of the story, it is the authors writing style or it could be the fact that it is translated from Italian to English and some translations loose something in that process.
So good luck to me, and to all the reader out there who have picked a book that they want to read but might be having trouble with.
