Foucaultin heiluri (tekijä: Umberto Eco) (1988)

    Ruusun nimi (tekijä: Umberto Eco) (hankreardon, Sensei-CRS)
  2. 193
    Yhdeksäs portti (tekijä: Arturo Pérez-Reverte) (P_S_Patrick, stephaniefeldman, Sensei-CRS)
    P_S_Patrick: These books have a fair bit in common. They are both intense and thrilling mysteries, involving the occult, conspiracies, books, murders, and are both set mainly in Europe. What The Club Dumas does, Foucalt's Pendulum does better, but that is just my opinion. I have known people give up on reading Foucalt's Pendulum because of its length, its abundance of complicated detail, and its demands on the readers concentration, but any serious reader who enjoyed the Club Dumas should enjoy this more. Anyone who enjoyed Eco's story, likewise, should enjoy the other book, but don't expect it to be quite as good, though I don't think there is a surplus of work in this genre that can compare, with this being more or less the next best thing that I have read.… (lisätietoja)
  3. 82
    Prahan kalmisto (tekijä: Umberto Eco) (bookmomo)
    bookmomo: Two brilliant conspiracy stories, with heaps of secrets and scret societies, wicked or plain mad characters. Both well written.
  4. 83
    Quicksilver (tekijä: Neal Stephenson) (ateolf)
  5. 74
    The Illuminatus! Trilogy (tekijä: Robert Shea) (craigim, ateolf)
  6. 42
    Flaamilainen taulu (tekijä: Arturo Pérez-Reverte) (Patangel)
  7. 32
    Anathem (tekijä: Neal Stephenson) (freddlerabbit)
    freddlerabbit: See the Name of the Rose recommendation above - I find Foucault's even more analogous here because Name of the Rose is a bit more plot-driven than the other two, where Foucault's and Anathem both have as much as 40% pure theory-disguised-as-dialogue.… (lisätietoja)
  8. 54
    Painovoiman sateenkaari (tekijä: Thomas Pynchon) (billmcn)
    billmcn: The best paranoid alternate history novel ever written. Also the best novel ever written.
  9. 21
    The Book of God and Physics: A Novel of the Voynich Mystery (tekijä: Enrique Joven) (bertilak)
  10. 00
    Aegypt (tekijä: John Crowley) (LamontCranston)
  11. 11
    Everything Is Under Control: Conspiracies, Cults, and Cover-ups (tekijä: Robert Anton Wilson) (ehines)
    ehines: A good primer on a lot of the conspiracy theories that drive this book.
  12. 00
    The Damned / Down there (tekijä: Joris-Karl Huysmans) (Torikton)
  13. 00
    Alamut (tekijä: Vladimir Bartol) (ursula)
    ursula: Alamut tells the story of the assassins of the Alamut fortress reference in Foucault's Pendulum. It also has a philosophical bent that will probably appeal.
  14. 11
    Flicker (tekijä: Theodore Roszak) (ari.joki)
    ari.joki: Secret societies, conspiracies, mass media...
  15. 24
    Kabaalin kulta (tekijä: Lawrence Norfolk) (P_S_Patrick)
    P_S_Patrick: These two books have a fair bit in common. Both are dense, demanding, historical, and are thick with intrigue, conspiracy, and foul play. Thrilling stuff.
  16. 14
    Tuli (tekijä: Katherine Neville) (PghDragonMan)
    PghDragonMan: Numerology, arcane science, secret societies and foreign languages bind these two works together.
  17. 14
    The Moses Legacy (tekijä: Adam Palmer) (Farringdon, hankreardon)
    Farringdon: Umberto Eco is essentially an up-market Dan Brown
  18. 16
    Pyhä veri, Pyhä Graal (tekijä: Michael Baigent) (Moomin_Mama)
    Moomin_Mama: One is a cracking, very readable conspiracy theory. The other is an intelligent thriller which makes fun of such books, their writers and their readers. Both are great fun

Eco has an encyclopedic knowledge of historical events and figures and combines these with fictitious storytelling to the point that it becomes difficult to tell what is indeed true. On every page Eco mentions yet another historical figure or (real) secret society which warrants a break from the book and puts you on a side-quest to find out more about them. The story itself revolves around two friends with a passion for conspiracy as they construct their own theory following the reception of mysterious manuscript. Much like the reader often struggles to discerns Eco's fiction from history, so do the protagonists become increasingly involved in the conspiracy they created. ( )

This was my first Eco book. It won't be my last.

I usually lose patience quickly when an author has a proclivity to use two, three - even four analogies where one is sufficient. Not so with this book. The analogies are so clever - and cleverly delivered - that I barely noticed I was being pestered by one of my pet peeves. Even after realizing it, I still was not bothered all that much. Strange, that.

Eco is a very wordy writer who, at the same time manages to drive the plot forward while painting immense pictures with words. The translation from Italian to English must have been a monumental task as the prose is dense and the sheer amount of cryptic references is staggering. While I'm sure some parts must have suffered due to translation, I found the text eminently readable. Anyway, on to the story...

Imagine that you work at a publishing house in Milan as a researcher. Now, imagine that, previous to being hired into this position, you wrote your doctoral thesis on the Knights Templar, thereby making you somewhat of an expert on the subject. Imagine further that your little publishing house is constantly beset by crackpot wanna-be authors who are looking to publish their personal crack-pot theories about the Knights Templar, the Rosicrucians, the Jesuits, the Jews, the Illuminati, the Catholics, the Nazis, the Masons, the Muslims, and... oh yes! The Masters of the World, who live underground, (naturally!)

So one night, after a long day at the office researching compounds for books on metallurgy, you are sitting around with a couple of your co-workers at the local watering hole discussing these crack-pot authors, (whom you have dubbed 'Diabolicals' - smirk!), when you hit upon an idea; you and your friends will write 'The Plan'! You will create a cohesive, all- encompassing plot that ties together all known conspiracy theories into a single unified plot! This plot will explain, once and for all, what all these mysterious secret groups have been up to all these centuries. To help with this task you enlist the aid of a strange, urbane old fellow named Agliè who is extremely knowledgeable about the occult and who likes to imply that he is the Comte de Saint-Germain, living in perpetuity and assuming new identities as the previous ones, (ahem), outlive their usefulness. But I digress...

As you and your friends obsessively enter historical details of 'The Plan' into your computer, (which is compiling all the data and turning it into 'The Plan' by finding conflicts in your data), you realize that the original Templar plan, (you know, the one that you are creating), went awry due to some mismanaged numerology. This led to one splinter group of Templars missing their meeting with another splinter group of Templars, which led to various and sundry shadowy organizations meandering around in the dark trying to figure out how to get back on track. When they catch wind of 'The Plan', these shadowy groups begin to pursue you and your friends in order to wring the final key to mastery of the world from you! Verily, your hoax is become like The Great Worm Ouroboros, eating it's own tail.

Oh, and everything of course hinges on the pendulum.

I liked this book despite the wordy 640-page length. I liked it despite Eco's insistence on lengthy descriptions. I liked it despite - and because of - the 'kitchen sink' approach that included just about every secret organization and conspiracy theory ever dreamed up. I loved this book for the humor and education it bestows. With that said, Focault's Pendulum is not for everyone. Many people will likely find it dry and tedious. I found it funny and entertaining in many parts. Downbeat and sad in others. One thing most readers will probably agree on - love it or hate it, Eco writes some extremely well-researched material and the depth of his historical knowledge is incredible.

If you're not sure, give it a try. Don't give up too soon but, if you're not having a good time by around page 200 or so, this book might not be for you. ( )

Umberto Eco has launched a novel that is even more intricate and absorbing than his international best seller The Name of the Rose. Unlike its predecessor, Foucault's Pendulum does not restrict its range of interests to monastic, medieval arcana. This time Eco's framework is vast -- capacious enough to embrace reams of ancient, abstruse writings and a host of contemporary references or allusions...
True believers, skeptics, those waffling in between: all are in for a scarifying shock of recognition.
lisäsi Shortride | muokkaaTime, Paul Gray (Nov 6, 1989)
 
You may call the book an intellectual triumph, if not a fictional one. No man should know so much. It is the work not of a literary man but of one who accepts the democracy of signs. .... To see what Mr. Eco is really getting at, the reader of his fiction or pseudofiction should consult his scholarly works, where observation and interpretation are not disguised as entertainment. I don't think ''Foucault's Pendulum'' is entertainment any more than was ''The Name of the Rose.'' It will appeal to readers who have a puritanical tinge - those who think they are vaguely sinning if they are having a good time with a book. To be informed, however, is holy.
 
I doubt if we will see a more exhilarating novel published this year, and you don't have to take a reviewer's word for it: can 600,000 Italians be wrong?
 
U ovom delu Eko se lucidno podsmehnuo svim teorijama zavere od srednjeg veka do danas. Posle čitanja ovog romana sigurno je da će mnogi čitaoci pohrliti da obogate svoja saznanja o alhemiji, kabali i srednjovekovnim tajnim društvima. U ovom romanu Eko se lucidno podsmehnuo svim teorijama zavere od srednjeg veka do danas.
