    Hugo Award Winner, Best Novel, 1961

    Winner of the 1961 Hugo Award for Best Novel and widely considered one of the most accomplished, powerful, and enduring classics of modern speculative fiction, Walter M. Miller’s A Canticle for Leibowitz is a true landmark of 20th-century literature - a chilling and still-provocative look at a post-apocalyptic future. 

    In a nightmarish, ruined world, slowly awakening to the light after sleeping in darkness, the infantile rediscoveries of science are secretly nourished by cloistered monks dedicated to the study and preservation of the relics and writings of the blessed Saint Isaac Leibowitz. From there, the story spans centuries of ignorance, violence, and barbarism, viewing through a sharp, satirical eye the relentless progression of a human race damned by its inherent humanness to recelebrate its grand foibles and repeat its grievous mistakes. 

    Seriously funny, stunning, tragic, eternally fresh, imaginative, and altogether remarkable, A Canticle for Leibowitz retains its ability to enthrall and amaze. It is now, as it always has been, a masterpiece.

    Frightening, Timeless

    The story is a slow burn and will absolutely fascinate you if you care to put in the effort to think about the ideas it proposes.
    I highly recommend it.

    bored to death

    I just couldn't... i tried and I tried but it was not enough, the loooong latin phrasing with no translation, hinting a background story, it just does not work for me.
    The idea is good, interesting if you read the argument, but once you start reading you realize you are in a trap.
    Maybe I am too "main stream" and I only enjoy boring zombie crap, but this is not my cup of tea.
    Station eleven is different, and cool, the stand is amazing, same as swan song, or the passage, a boy and his dog, all special in their own way, but this one... don't do it mate! you'll thank me
