A Canticle for Leibowitz has been a favorite for years. I started reading science fiction in the late sixties and this was one of the earliest ones I read. My adult son recently read this and I was going to read it again so we could discuss. Before I could read it, I saw a recommendation for the Audible book version and decided to give it a try. And was glad I did. The narrator an outstanding job bringing the novel to life.
I enjoyed this so much that I listened to it in only a couple of days. Guess I need to find a longer Audible book to listen to so my choice lasts until my next credit arrives.
This is my second time reading this book so not sure I'd read it again, perhaps..
The theme will remain timely and relevant as long as people remain human.
The novice priest.
No, just consistent enjoyment of the story.
Definitely on my recommend list.
I had never even heard of this book until about 2008. After reading this remarkably entertaining and extremely well written book, I could not understand why,
I was not thrilled with the narration. I would have preferred Robertson Dean. Mr. Weiner's performance sounded as if he was trying a bit too hard and it came across a bit too formal. However, I don't think it detracts from the overall affect and entertainment of the book.
love grabbing a book that has me racing to the last page
the structure of the story, the dialogue, the purpose of the book... I didn't really much enjoy any of it and found myself not following along because of lack of Interest , only finishing it to finish. after reading the synopsis and seeing that it won the Hugo award I was excited about this book; however, I do not believe I would recommend it to anyone
I tried but couldn't finish. Too much of the book centered around Catholicism, monastic life, and text in Latin. When elements of the plot popped up, it just wasn't enough to hold the works together. Very good narration.
Read many good things about this book over the years. Decided to give it a try. It was long, plodding, boring during whole parts. In the end the story got a little better - but really it was nothing to rave about. Interesting premise, but should have merited a short story at most. In fact I kept thinking it felt like a short story that just would not end.
