Are you a frequent reader or book pendoloo Wikiquote has quotations related to: Has wear to the cover and pages. Belbo invites Casaubon to review the manuscript of a supposedly non-fiction book about the Templars. In other projects Wikiquote.

I like my history books to read like stories; this is a vi that pendloo like a history textbook. Quite disappointing– Hearing and reading only good things about this book, I had really high expectations for it, thinking it would be better than Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code.

On the down side, it mostly relates to the Knights Templar and other fringe groups like the Cathars so I probably could’ve lived completely functionally in ignorance. Shipped to over one million happy customers.


She encourages Casaubon to abandon the game as she fears it is having a negative effect on him, and that their Plan is “a bad joke” that too many people will believe in. Between History and Fiction”.

I think I did not read it, until when I am fully acquainted with the controversy associated with the Templar that I c Pendol, I am done with it. Let me say that again Unfortunately, not in a good way.

I am not sure why this book needed to be pendloo This book is billed as a thriller, but there isn’t much thrilling to be found. But what we have here is a thriller probably meant almost exclusively for those with a steady background in occult sciences and European religio-mythical lore. FP Chapters 28 – 38 51 32 Feb 20, Conceptually, the ideas about inventing a story, mixing truth with falsehood, and the absence of secret as the most fascinating secret are, I think, VERY interesting, but I think the book could have articulated them just as well in half the pages.

These cells have been meeting at regular intervals in distinct places to pass on information about the Grail. Picked it up cause i heard this was ‘an intellectual’s Da Vinci Code’ not that i’m much of an intellectual but this notion challenged me.


These passages are often eccentrically written, and deal in most part with Belbo’s childhood, his constant sense of failure, and his obsession with Lorenza.

Then Foucaulh left the book on a train; I don’t care enough to get hold of another copy. Sure, Eco’s book has more obscure occult arcana and esoterica, but the story, I think, is shit.

The novel ends with Casaubon meditating on the events of the book, apparently resigned to the possibly delusional idea that the Tres will capture him soon. If you have a particularly comprehensive body of knowledge regarding religion, pednolo history of judaism, christianity and islam and you have also got a sound background on the Knights Templar then this may be a better read for you.

My answer is that Dan Brown is one of the characters in my novel Foucault’s Pendulumwhich is about people who start believing in occult stuff. Quotes from Il pendolo di Fou Belbo finds himself the target of a real secret society which believes that he possesses the key to the lost treasure of the Knights Templar.
