Well, it's not really to be taken as a book,
This review is from: How To Travel With A Salmon: and Other Essays (Paperback)
Ok, first of all this review refers to other reviews, it is, in a way, an answer to some mis-statements...
Now yes, this book is absolutely and delightfully hilarious, but no, it's not really a book.
This is a collection of articles Eco wrote in various magazines and newspapers. So it is to be judged as a selection of works...
So do not judge the lack of an over-riding theme, because this is just a collection of essays, but it's the best collection I've ever come across in my life.
So read it, laugh with it, and love it.
