It is too bad Miller did not produce more.
I found the book to be less entertaining than Canticle and somewhat disappointing until I got to the end, when it began to come together and make just a bit of sense.
This book was a poorly written sequel to Canticle, if you want something worthwhile read that.

Unintelligible story line. This book plays off of the original Canticle which was excellent. Saint Leibowitz was not worth the time spent reading it.Published on August 2, 2010 by Charles E. Carroll
