    ePUB Walter M. Miller Jr. ä A Canticle for Leibowitz ePUB à A Canticle Epub / ä canticle epub, leibowitz ebok, A Canticle book, A Canticle for Leibowitz PDF/EPUBOdd as it sounds this is hot toddy warm blanket comfort food for me Admittedly that’s not the typical description of this cynical bleak themed post apocalyptic SF classic However the easy breezy style with which Miller explores his melancholy material manages to pluck smiles from me whenever I pick it up This go around I listened to the audio version which was recently released it was as mood brightening an experience as my previous read throughDespite dealing with dark somber subject matter and ultimately ending on a tragic crescendo of “humanity is stupid savage and screwed” the journey of the novel is so filled with engaging characters and genuine humor that the surrounding depression and moroseness of the narrative theme just can’t seem to grab hold

    ePUB Walter M.

If there even were buzzards in Eden At least there will be no buzzards in Alpha Centauri Unless the colonists bring buzzards with them as Memento Mori But it probably wouldn’t make a difference After all it didn’t the first time and it didn’t the second time Should we be so naive as to think that there won’t be a third? That the colonists to other worlds will not repeat the mistakes of not one past but two? Hope is a virtue whose meaning confounds me but A Canticle for Leibowitz offers a kind of hope that I can understand the preservation of knowledge Both in history and in Walter Miller’s fantasy the Catholic Church is a bastion of knowledge This is something I can comprehend Spiritual hope is something I can only admire from the sidelines maybe reach out my hand and let some holy vestment brush against my straining fingers But the pre

    ePUB Walter M.
