    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 postapocalyptic future.

    Joel D Offenberg says: "A Classic"
    "Weird. Enjoyable listen, but cerebral"

    Story
    What does Tom Weiner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The voice performance is great... the different characters, the Western accents speaking latin, etc. Unexpected and as strange as the story. Reading it would be a completely different experience.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not really; it's pretty disjointed and isn't really a narrative story. I found myself thinking more about how Miller came up with it rather than aspects of the story.


    Any additional comments?

    Strange, but worth a listen.
