It has been nearly forty years since Walter M. Miller, Jr., shocked and dazzled readers with his provocative bestseller and enduring classic, A Canticle for Leibowitz.  Now, in one of the most eagerly awaited publishing events of our time, here is Miller's masterpiece, an epic intellectual and emotional tour de force that will stand beside 1984, Brave New World, and A Canticle for Leibowitz.In a world struggling to transcend a terrifying legacy of darkness--a world torn between love and violence, good and evil--one man undertakes an odyssey of adventure and discovery that promises to alter not only his destiny but the destiny of humankind as well. . . .Millennia have passed since the Flame Deluge, yet society remains fragmented, pockets of civilization besieged by barbarians.  The Church is in turmoil, the exiled papacy struggling to survive in its Rocky Mountain refuge.  To the south, tyranny is on the march.  Imperial Texark troops, bent on conquest, are headed north into the lands of the Nomads, spreading terror in their wake.Meanwhile, isolated in Leibowitz Abbey, Brother Blacktooth St. George suffers a crisis of faith.  Torn between his vows and his Nomad upbringing, between the Holy Virgin and visions of the Wild Horse Woman of his people, he stands at the brink of disgrace and expulsion from his order.  But he is offered an escape--of sorts: a new assignment as a translator for Cardinal Brownpony, which will take him to the contentious election of a new pope and then on a pilgrimage to the city of New Rome.  Journeying across a continent divided by nature, politics, and war, Blacktooth is drawn into Brownpony's intrigues and conspiracies.  He bears witness to rebellion, assassination, and human sacrifice.  And he is introduced to the sins that monastery life has long held at bay.This introduction comes in the form of AEdrea, a beautiful but forbidden "genny" living among the deformed and mutant castouts in Texark's most hostile terrain.  As Blacktooth encounters her again and again on his travels--in the flesh, in rumors of miraculous deeds, and in the delirium of fever--he begins to wonder if AEdrea is a she-devil, the Holy Mother, or the Wild Horse Woman herself.Picaresque and passionate, magnificent, dark, and compellingly real, Saint Leibowitz and the Wild Horse Woman is a brutal, brilliant, thrilling tale of mystery, mysticism, and divine madness, a classic that will long endure in every reader's memory.

As others have noted, the multiple names and geography of this story, along with some political things that come up here and there can make this book quite confusing at times if you worry too much about the details. If you take it more spatially and keep going forward with the likable main character then you can follow him through his adventure in a world that is equally as chaotic in a post apocalyptic world that at times works for me in a way that the Mad Max movies work on a human level when post apocalyptic stories tend to depress me beyond ultimate enjoyability. While lacking the overall poetry that the writing in Canticle had, the end definitely has it if you make it that far. I don't read a ton of sci-fi or fantasy, but Walter M. Miller Jr. was in my opinion one of the best. If you liked the unique world that he took you to in Canticle, then welcome yourself back.

I consider A Canticle for Leibowitz the best book I've ever read. So maybe it's not surprising that the sequel was disappointing. The plot moves very slowly and often seems to go nowhere. There are detailed descriptions of events that don't seem to be of any importance. I was thoroughly confused between which warlord belonged to which clan, right up to the end. The map was helpful but insufficient. Some of the frequent references to the original seemed forced. I had to force myself to finish it. It certainly had very little of the brilliance of the original.

Read 'A Canticle for Leibowitz' first. Walter Miller presents an interesting expansion of the post-Flame Deluge world that he first gave us in that story. He develops the genetic, historical, and political aspects of such a world to a much greater extent. A good read.

What a disappointment! I was so excited when I received Amazon's glowing review of this book that I immediately ordered it in hardback! Save your money and re-read A Canticle for Leibowitz. Reportedly, Terry Bissom finished this book after Miller died. If so, he must have done so without touching the parts already written, which could generously be described as a very rough first draft, complete with clumsy sentence and paragraph construction, errors in grammar, and repetition. The world in which the book is set is confusing, and the map in the front doesn't help much, nor does the fact that each territory seems to have several names. The many characters also each have about three names in several languages, and it is almost impossible to keep them apart (Mad Bear, Half-Breed, etc.). A Dramatis Personae in the front would have helped a lot! The characters don't seem to have much ,and I wearied of the plot, which involved political/religious intrigue mixed with murky references to some pagan religion which may or may not have parallels to Native American or Oriental practices. And lots of sexual references. I was surprised at the positive critical reviews, and I was disappointed at their inaccuracy, e.g., Kirkus said that A Canticle for Leibowitz was Miller's only other novel, but I have another sitting on my shelf. If they can't even get their facts right, how can I trust their opinions?

Very hard to keep track of the characters with multiple names being used. .

It's not as good as it's predecessor, A Canticle for Leibowitz, but it's not a bad read, especially if you liked the first book. An interesting addition to the post-apocalyptic genre.

very good
I'm trudging along. This is no "Canticle"
