My first video- A book review of Walter Miller’s exceptional “A Canticle for Leibowitz”
Absolutely loved this book.
Thanks for a nice interview. I just read the book and I loved it. It was recommended to me by a student in the library where I work as a librarian. I don't usually read science fiction, but this book was something I really enjoyed. I keep thinking about it, even though I finished it about a week ago. Thank you again!
They say don't judge a book by its cover, but for this I have to and I can tell it's fucking sick!
Dear Pr)pertyPub1ic,I liked your review, short and sweet. I first read A Canticle for Leibowitz in 1962, (I was 20 years old then) and it totally captured my imagination and spiritual view. I have read it every 5 years, and still I learn about the Existential human condition. thank you, – pierre from New Mexico –
It is one of the best books I have ever read, that includes all genres.
You should review Tales of The Screaming Eagle. I loved that book!
awesome review . short & to the point!
I just bought this book thanks to your review. Can't wait for Amazon to get it here. Thanks!! :3
Yes good review, but check out Zars: The Prophet of Mars, by Paolo Raphael, a metaphysical science fiction thriller. Awesome and very real if fiction can be real. Fast moving exciting with passages of great sensitivity and beauty.
i just finished this book and was blown away, especially because it was written so long ago! have you looked at his sequel "Saint Liebowitz and the Wild Horse Woman"? i am wondering if i should read that as well, some reviews are pretty critical….
I'll be sure to buy it sometime soon.
On a related note, it seems like the cover art for almost each edition is amazing.
A nice informed review. Well done sir.
Although it is filed under the Post_Apocalyptic genre i feel its more like a tale from each time period. In most post-apocalyptic writings the characters have an idea of what life was like before the world ended. In this masterpeice however its more mysterios and they never seem to understand how the oldworld worked. A perfect example of this is when Brother Francis is having a disscusion with Brother Jeris about electronics and they have an argument that electrons never really existed.
Thanks for not giving the ending away!
