Travels in Hyperreality based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Occasional writings may be very readable on or around the occasion i.c. or in a given time period, but collections of such writings often result in tedious reads one has to drag through. Travels in hyperreality by Umberto Eco is such a collection of dead wood, that someone pasted an enticing new title on. A selection of readings from the 70s and 80s, this volume did me nothing.
The only thing I really understand from this book is that Eco knows he's smarter than the rest of us. But does have to be so snarky about it?
