Read-a-Thon April 2011 (2)

Well, after 12 hours my first goal, at least 200 pages to read form the book Imprimatur by Monaldi and Sorti is reached. Although the novel is not too much interesting. it's like a "The Name of the Rose"-clone. Lost and found manuscript, a homicide, secrets and mysteries. It's set in Rome in an inn (or a hotel) in the 17. Century.The narrator is a young boy, precisely: someone, who was a young boy at the time of the story, but he wrote the whole story 16 year later.  It' s also like in Eco's novel, it's like Adso's position, he was also a young boy when the story, he tells us  took place. (But he notices it in his old ages, so it makes him an unreliable narrator double time) And there are similarities in th character of William of Baskerville and Atto Melani too. 

Well, unfortunately, I can't dissociate it from The Name of Te Rose during reading this book, I'm always searching the similar motives.  

But I'm still hoping to find something makes it more interesting on its own way.
