I saw the movie when I was young (starring Christian Slater and Sean Connery, 1986) and I read the book also later. It is not an easy read, as are all the Umberto Eco's books. I really enjoyed this series and the casting was perfect. I understand why some people don't embark on the journey, it is not a light "show" and asks of the viewer to be quite focused. But truly, Eco wrote a masterpiece and this rendition is really great.
