    Virtuoso storyteller Umberto Eco conjures up a gloriously rich portrait of 14th century Franciscan Italy with such grace, ease, wit, and love that you will become utterly intoxicated with the place and time. The story is performed by Theodore Bikel who has starred in numerous Broadway hits, including The Sound of Music, Zorba, and Fiddler on the Roof.

    Story

    The audio version, abridged, is nice because it makes it more accessible. Reading the book can be daunting for someone who is not well acquainted with history and classical languages. The audio version eliminates a lot of the philosophy arguments between the characters. The narrator is fantastic. His voice is rich and mellow. I have found this to be my favorite companion on nights when sleep eludes me.
