In a ruined, nightmarish world, slowly and gradually awakening after sleep, the juvenile rediscoveries of science are fed secretly by the cloistered monks. This work was all dedicated to the preservation and study of the writings and relics of St. Isaac Leibowitz. From this point, the story here goes down to centuries of ignorance, barbarism, and violence. This was a view through a very sharp and satirical eye showing the progress of the human race that was damned by the intrinsic humanness to re-celebrate its foibles and repeating the mistakes.
The novel is stunning and quite funny, tragic, imaginative, fresh, and remarkable, all at the same time. The book manages to retain its ability to amazing and enthralling the audience. It is today and it has always been a top masterpiece in fictional literary writing.
