En el año 2002, el estudio central de la Cadena SER se transformó en la nave del misterio. Con la ilusión y el rumbo puestos en la búsqueda de lo desconocido comenzó una aventura fascinante que ha hermanado a millones de amigos. A lo largo de los casi quinientos programas de Milenio 3 hemos vivido muchas experiencias, hemos sentido muchos terrores y hemos aprendido algo que anteriormente no sabíamos. Este libro es un homenaje a esa gran familia que vive cada fin de semana esta experiencia radiofónica, una invitación a los que quieran sumarse y un recuerdo de algunas de las historias que convirtieron la madrugada en algo mágico e inolvidable. IKER JIMÉNEZ - CARMEN PORTER.

unfortunately, too relevant

I feel like this book has had some bad luck by becoming increasingly true and relevant. Since conspiracy theories have proliferated this decade, we're all thoroughly familiar. Although this book was there first, if you've already had a read through everything on wikipedia and countless thinkpieces on the issue, this feels like more of the basics. What might have been obscure and exciting conspiracy theories, a mindblowing social milieu, and novel analysis when presented for the first time is just not so exciting anymore.
This is solidly a good book - its just that the other Eco novels are better. The ones set in the middle ages are more immersive, more imaginative, more vibrant. It also seems like Eco is taking this seriously instead of "just" having fun. There's an analytical and didactic feel at the heart of this novel, which I didn't like.

Eins der besten Bücher das ich kenne

5 stars

Im Grunde eine Anleitunge wie man eine Verschwörungstheorie bastelt - für Fortgeschrittene. Ziemlich dicker Schinken, nicht leicht zu lesen. Und nebenbei verbringt man noch etliche Stunden damit Vieles was erwähnt wird auf Wikipedia nachzuschlagen. Aber meiner Meinung ist es das wert, auch nach mehrmaligem Lesen findet man darin noch Details die man bisher übersehen hat.
