I found this book a tad slow in the beginning, but as you move along you'll find that the world created within is incredible in its detail. The main shock came somewhere around page 180 (this isn't a spoiler, don't worry) when the story being told came to an end. I wondered if 420 pages of epilogue was a little overdone, but i found that the book is actually broken into four parts with four different characters telling their versions of the same series of events. The pieces slowly come together throughout the book as you learn who to trust and who to be wary of. I really enjoyed this format and especially found myself wrapped up in the second and fourth sections. The third section is slightly rough because the character talking at that point is not redeemable to me in any way, but that's always a matter of opinion.

If you like old style "who-dun-it" tales interwoven with religious fervor, then this is right up your alley. ( )

Endless. Tedious. I abhorred the writing style. It is deliberately annoying. ( )

Very well put together. The story told from four very distinct perspectives. The last story wraps it all up very neatly. It's set in Oxford in the1660s - it seems very realistic historically, from what little I know. People hold attitudes that sound quite strange to 21st Century ears! The politics and conspiracies around the Restoration seemed very realistic too. ( )

I liked nearly everything about this book - great plot, clever organization, four sometimes unreliable narrators (although not always for the reasons you're led to expect), pitch-perfect evocation of mid 17th century Oxford, and a great ending. My only complaint is that the pacing was too slow. If everything else about it wasn't so good I probably wouldn't have finished it. I had to get nearly to the end of the book to appreciate how good it was and it keeps getting better the more I think about it. ( )

If you liked Umberto Eco's "Name of the Rose," you should run to buy Iain Pears' lavishly erudite historical mystery "An Instance of the Fingerpost."... If Eco's book was a sly demonstration of semiotics, the study of signs, Pear's is an exercise in theories of knowledge. Theological disputation, cryptography, religious dissent, medical experiments, moral philosophy, even the Turkish-Venetian war over Crete are all dealt with in what sometimes seems an entertaining encyclopedia of the second half of the 17th century.... When the denouement comes, it is with a new and final twist, one whose quality of surprise is the final proof of this talented author's almost infinite capacity to replace one understanding of things with another.
 
Successful literary thrillers in the mold of Umberto Eco's ''Name of the Rose'' are the stuff of publishers' dreams, and in Pears's novel they may have found a near-perfect example of the genre. It is literary -- if that means intelligent and well written -- and for the reader who likes to be teased, who likes his plots as baroque and ingenious as possible, ''An Instance of the Fingerpost'' will not disappoint.... [T]wo, perhaps three, of the four narrators are men hard to like or care about. It was not until the final 150 pages that I found myself being moved. The feel of this last section is bolder, more imaginative, mysterious even, as though the novel had suddenly transcended itself and broken free of the trappings of the genre.

...a novel about deception and self-deception, about the scientific method and Jesuitical chicanery, above all about political expedience and religious transcendence. Every sentence in the book is as solid as brick -- and as treacherous as quicksand.... [Y]ou could reread the novel just to savor the subtle tricks of omission and misdirection.... Iain Pears has written an impressively original and audaciously imaginative intellectual thriller. Don't miss it.
 
Rashomon meets The Name of the Rose in a triumphant triple-decker that knocks every speck of dust from the historical mystery.

A Question of Precedence

There are idols which we call Idols of the Market. For Men associate by Discourse, and a false and improper Imposition of Words strangely possesses the Understanding, for Words absolutely force the Understanding, and put all Things into Confusion.
— Francis Bacon,
Novum Organum Scientarum, Section II,
Aphorism VI
An Instance of the Fingerpost

When in a Search of any Nature the Understanding stands suspended, then instances of the Fingerpost shew the true and inviolable Way in which the Question is to be decided. These Instances afford great Light, so that the Course of the Investigation will sometimes be terminated by them. Sometimes, indeed, these Instances are found amongst that Evidence already set down.>— Francis Bacon,

Marco da Cola, gentleman of Venice, respectfully presents his greetings. I wish to recount the journey which I made to England in the year 1663, the events which I witnessed and the people I met, these being, I hope, of some interest to those concerned with curiosity. Equally I intend my account to expose the lies told by those whom I once numbered, wrongly, amongst my friends.
