Jon Moss Reviews "A Canticle for Leibowitz"

Taking the 50-Word Review Challenge!

The book: A Canticle for Leibowitz
The author: Walter M. Miller
The reviewer: Jon Moss
Available from: Barnes & Noble

Miller’s award-winning novel stands the test of time and justifiably deserves to be continuously in print.  So many questions to ponder, presented through Miller’s monastic brothers preserving the last scraps of our civilization and an undying Jewish hermit (assumedly the Wandering Jew of legend) searching for Him who said ‘Come forth!’ Even though the Cold War is over, and mutually assured destruction no longer so assured, A Canticle for Leibowitz posits convincingly that ‘those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it.’
An extended review is available on Moss's blog.
