Review: A Canticle for Leibowitz

A Canticle for Leibowitz
A Canticle for Leibowitz by Walter M. Miller Jr.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book. I wish I had known about it sooner. It is a post-nuclear war futuristic story about a series of monks whose job is to preserve the knowledge of the past. It’s rare to find books where more than a few of the protagonists have right reason and strong faith and where the author is aptly skilled in the human side of storytelling. I found it to have the wartime type of humor you might find in Catch 22 or the TV show, MASH.
