The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana (Unabridged) audiobook, by Umberto Eco Internationally best-selling author Umberto Eco is a master stylist whose books, including The Name of the Rose and Baudolino, have been savored by millions around the world. Now, with The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana, Eco crafts another of the ambitious and breathtaking novels that are his. Of course, the rejection of their own style, too, is in the spirit of postmodernism, but I wished that from eco have only the richness of vocabulary so book subjects (“Name of the Rose” remembered) In general, post-modernism in the “Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana “blooms so that drowns out all the charm and subtlety of the novel.
