One of the many strengths of the book is Eco’s ability to evoke the medieval world with remarkable detail. He writes,”The stone, in its smooth dryness, was like a virgin’s skin before the subtle transgressions of time and seduction.”
I recently read “The Mysterious Affair at Styles” by Agatha Christie, and it was a thrilling mystery! The story revolves around a murder at Styles Court, a grand country house. Hercule Poirot, a brilliant detective, takes on the case and skillfully uncovers the secrets within the household using his keen observation skills.
