A Canticle for Leibowitz (St. Leibowitz, #1)

  • Au­thor: Wal­ter M. Miller Jr.
  • Rat­ing:
  • See in goodreads
  • Re­view:

    Yes, sure this is a clas­sic, but it has aged hor­ri­bly. It's a paean to re­ac­­tionary, con­ser­­va­­tive "thought", the sparse plot makes no sense, and it's so deeply in­­vest­ed on catholi­­cism it reeks of stale con­se­crat­ed wine.

    The catholic equiv­­a­­lent of a rap­­ture book.

    Would not rec­om­­mend if it were the nex­t-­­to-last book left in a post-apoc­­alip­tic waste­­land.

    PS: the au­thor some­how seems to feel say­ing some­thing in latin makes it deep and true.
