It is a manual in how to manipulate, cheat, lie, use others, create a complott or manufacture evidence. This is a return to the vivacity of language and ideas paraded in The Name of the Rose and Foucault’s Pendulum while simultaneously demonstrating the degree of social manipulation of which individuals and institutions are capable through the exploration of postmodern and metafictional themes.
My only criticism is that while The Prague Cemetery focuses on the roots of modern anti-Semitism, Umberto Eco seems uninterested in seriously examining the profound suffering it causes. But it also is at times refreshingly truthful, although the truth may then be used for nasty purposes. In other words he is a master forger. Eco still explores topics that come across most of his work, including religion, conspiracy theories Foucault’s Pendulumdeception and reality creation, and of course, semiotics.
He is a man without a moral compass except in the case of Abbe Dalla Piccola. And the story is hard to call nice – it is in fact really, really not nice. More than a fiction story, it is a true reality what he translates in this powerful book.

Instead, Eco is satisfied in his belief that his fiction is more real and devious than Dan Brown’s.
