Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
"As brilliant and quirky as THE NAME OF THE ROSE, as mischievous and wide-raning....A virtuoso performance."
THE SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
Three clever book editors, inspired by an extraordinary fable they heard years befoe, decide to have a little fun. Randomly feeding esoteric bits of knowledge into an incredible computer capable of inventing connections between all their entires, they think they are creating a long lazy game--until the game starts taking over....
Here is an incredible journey of thought and history, memory and fantasy, a tour de force as enthralling as anything Umberto Eco--or indeed anyone--has ever devised.

Review:
If you love mind gaems, intricate puzzles, the curiousities of history, and strange imaginings, you'll be fascinated by FOUCAULT'S PENDULUM, an elaborate maze of a book by the author of the huge bestseller THE NAME OF THE ROSE.
There are demonstraton models of Foucault's Pendulum in science museums across the United States and in Europe - my favorite is at the Musee des Arts et Metiers in Paris - a museum of technology and human endeavor lodged in an ancient clerical building - it's a fabulous combination of the practical and the metaphysical.
