    Whether it’s a critically acclaimed novel or provocative collection of essays, every work from best-selling author Umberto Eco is a highly anticipated publishing event. The Prague Cemetery is set amid conspiracy-rich 19th century Europe, where intrigue abounds—and where a lone, evil genius may be pulling all the strings.

    What made the experience of listening to The Prague Cemetery the most enjoyable?

    From start to finish this wonderfully complex life narrative is both fascinating and intricate. Love Eco... wish he would write a few more.


    What other book might you compare The Prague Cemetery to and why?

    Name of the Rose; Foucault's Pendulum, The Island of the Day Before, Baudolino, The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana; and The Prague Cemetery - all wonderfully complex and captivating.

    In 1989 Ken Follett astonished the literary world with The Pillars of the Earth, set in 12th-century England. Readers and listeners ever since have hoped for a sequel. At last, here it is. Although the two novels may be listened to in any order, World Without End also takes place in Kingsbridge, two centuries after the townspeople finished building their exquisite Gothic cathedral. The cathedral is again at the center of a web of love and hate, greed and pride, ambition and revenge.
