Sad indeed. The name of the Rose is one of my favorites, but I gave up on Foucalt's pendulum after a few pages. I just didn't get it at all. The only other book of his that I have is "Mouse or Rat?" a lovely little tome about the challenges of translation. Goodbye to a literary giant.

It's definitely not an easy read - I restarted it numerous times. And I had to have a dictionary by the side of me when I was reading it! And I Googled stuff. Definitely not a light read, but still somehow fabulous.
