    This book is nowhere as bad as some have made it out to be, and, indeed, had the original Canticle for Leibowitz not been written, this book standing alone might have established Miller's reputation.Miller's "problem" was that he hit a grand-slam home-run in Canticle, and he spent the remainder of what must have been a sad and frustrating life trying to get out from under Canticle's shadow. For a long time the prevailing view was that he had given up writing altogether. But the truth was that he [...]

    Hard to rate, even when I discount the last hundred or so pages written by another hand. If I also posit that Walter M. Miller (rest in peace) left an unfinished book behind him, whose first four-five hundred pages still needed his hand – and if I don’t blame the book for that – then it’s a definite four stars. It was very interesting to follow Miller to this, forty years later, which I did out of curiosity and respect for the writer who gave us Canticle. This one seemed to me a case of [...]

    Walter M. Miller committed suicide before completing his sequel to his only other novel, A CANTICLE FOR LEIBOWITZ. Terry Bisson was hired to edit and finish the book from Miller's outline. That hybrid became SAINT LEIBOWITZ AND THE WILD HORSE WOMAN.This novel is more of a 'midquel', rather than sequel, because its events take place 80 years after CANTICLE's part two, called "Fiat Lux" (c. 3254 AD, and 600 years before CANTICLE's part threeINT LEIBOWITZ reminded me very much of Herbert's DUNE. Th [...]

    The sequel to A Canticle for Liebowitz was thirty years in the making, but unfortunately, Miller seems to have forgotten how to write a novel in those decades. Many of the moral and ethical arguments that made Canticle so brilliant are still present, as is the occasional bit of dry humor, but these are overshadowed by long and drug-out passages, poor plotting, and a conclusion that seems to have been hastily written the night before the book went to press (the "Wild Horse Woman" from the title, [...]

    Oddly enough, I seem to be one of the few people here who enjoyed the sequel much more than its predecessor. I found A Canticle devoid of much of the human suffering that pervades this book, which questions the conflict between faith and tradition, desire and happiness, and what it means to be a good human being. SLatWHW tackles some heavy moral issues of how best to synthesize your emotions with your scruples in order to lead a godly life, and admits that self-sacrifice, though good for your so [...]

    It was a bit of a slog. There were too many characters with multiple and similar-sounding names for me to keep them straight. I'm not sure what the point of the book was? Maybe that no one wins in war?

    What the hell happened to Walter M Miller? In the 1950's he was a fairly consistent writer of short-stories who ended the decade producing one of the kite-marks of "literary" post-apocolyptic science fiction, A Canticle for Leibowitz. Then, all of a sudden, he produced precisely nothing until this follow-up novel 40 years later - and this was only published posthumously, after he blew his own brains out with a gun and an editor whittled down a sprawling 600 page manuscript by a third.I had previ [...]

    Story of two men, simply monk and noble (charismatic) arcibishop, later pope, from future middle-age-like (plus in some aspects renaissance-like and 19. century-like)world about finding way to God, love and hapiness. I thought for first time about dogmatica and spiritual confussion in middle age. It must be terrible! I feel so sorry for the poor peopleBut, all this is so interesting! Very good book.And there are some gay stories, too :o), some nice, some cruel ones: poor sweet (gay young unhappy [...]

    My reaction in one sentence: What the eff was the point? There’s a problem if I finish reading your book and I have no idea why you wrote it. And I honestly have no idea why Miller wrote this. What did he think he was discussing? Did he think he actually made some kind of point? I wanted this to be good; it started out with so much potential. Since the main characters are primarily Nomads who have chosen service to the Church, I figured there would be a great exploration of the tension between [...]

    I'd read Miller's A Canticle for Liebowitz as a kid. Post-holocaust novels were quite popular then when the threat of global thermonuclear war was much discussed. Unlike most other such books, Canticle was touching, wryly amusing, even hopeful. Civilization had not quite collapsed and the Church, as in the Dark Ages, maintained fragments of culture and learning. This book was intended as a sequel, being set many years after its predecessor. Unfortunately, Miller did not live to see it through to [...]

    This book was somewhat underwhelming to me. I read it immediately after I finished Canticle (which I love) for the third time and it just does not live up to the standard of the first book.The focus of the book on politics is an interesting choice. I enjoyed the parts about the conclave. However, the 'human side' of the story was not fleshed out. Many characters felt like cardboard to me.The book was wel structured though. I would recommend it to someone who really enjoyed Canticle but with a ca [...]

    Miller's first (and only other) novel, A Canticle for Liebowitz, is rightly regarded as classic. This posthumously published sequel is, in my opinion, just as good as the first (a minority view, I think). The story takes place around the same time as the second part of Canticle, and is an engrossing story with vivid characters. The symbolism and themes are often similar to Canticle's, with similar pessimism & dark humor, but Miller meanders into eastern mysticism too, and we even see heroism [...]

    The last novel written by Walter M. Miller before his death in the 1970s (with considerable posthumous rework by science-fiction author Terry Bisson at the Miller family's request), Saint Leibowitz and the Wild Horse Woman is a sequel to Miller's classic postapocalyptic novel A Canticle for Leibowitz.This time, the action all happens within the lifespan of Brother Blacktooth "Nimmy" St. George of the Abbey of Saint Leibowitz, a hundred years after the action in the "Fiat Homo" chapter of A Canti [...]

    I struggled with this book, an 'interquel' to Miller's previous novel, A Canticle for Leibowitz. The middle third of this mature-themed novel was difficult reading but I am satisfied to have finished it. At first I couldn't figure out what the book was supposed to be about. Then I realized it was really about one man, Brother Blacktooth "Nimmy" St. George, born a nomad but who joined the monks at the St. Leibowitz Abbey in the Southwest desert, but who through all his life struggled to find a ba [...]

    I really enjoyed this book, way more than I thought I would. An interesting take on the post-apocalyptic genre, which often times finds itself shying away from religious storytelling as it can be difficult to justify its existence in science-fiction in general. I find myself wanting to give this book four stars and yet I am held back by one crucial factor; the ending. In A Canticle For Leibowitz, a few ugly points about society and religion are faced and I was left feeling changed, as I believe [...]

    Until the last portion of this book, I thought it slightly inferior to its predecessor, A Canticle for Leibowitz - which would only have been expected, as this was published forty years after the classic. But the end was a thing of such beauty, and gave such perspective to the earlier portions of this book, and fit so well with the first, that I put it away like a treasure when I had finished it. This is mystical science fiction at its best.Addendum: Turns out - and this is shocking to me becaus [...]

    It's certainly not the masterpiece that Miller found with Canticle, but still an interesting journey nonetheless. This is hardly a book of science fiction; it's more a story of losing and finding faith, and it's a more powerful work because of this. If you're looking for a second verse to the hymn of the enduring Church from Canticle, it won't be found here. The same gripping humanity is here: all the characters are trying to make the best life they can with what the mid-33rd century has given t [...]

    It started out well but became too much of a chore to finish.When the story is initially told from the viewpoint of Blacktooth St George it's great ,but once the political intrigues become too deep the story gets too confusing and just doesn't hold interest anymore.Definitely not as good as a Canticle for Leibowitz.If you like the highly detailed,non technological world presented here,you might enjoy Keith Robert's Pavane,set in a backward 20th century molded by the assassination of Queen Elizab [...]

    I stopped 84 pages in. Life is too short for books you don't enjoy.Maybe the fault is mine for trying to read this right after A Canticle for Leibowitz which would be a tough act to follow for anyone (including, apparently, the author who wrote it). Perhaps my expectations were just too high. This started off well enough with a nice premise about loss of faith, but it kind of fizzled after the first two or three chapters.

    A book that rewards the concentration I didn't give it. Set within the same post apocolyptic world of it's predecessor. It follows a man spun by his own failings across a tale of complicated high church politics and secular conflict. With a lot of things going on you will need to set aside a couple of full Sunday's afternoons to keep a grip on it all, and the momentum for the story to grab you. Not a book to do in fits and starts as I tried if you want to appreciate and enjoy it fully. If I had, [...]

    I loved Canticle for Liebowitz when I was younger--I read it three or four times.I was shocked and saddened when I heard that the author committed suicide. I've never used the book in my courses as a consequence.Some day, I hope to stumble across the sequel and see how it goes.May God have mercy on Walter. May his soul and the souls of all of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

    I am ashamed to admit that this book was so bad that I stopped reading it half way through. This is very out of character for me.I don't know if Miller's interests changed over the intervening 30 years or if the substantial differences between Canticle and Wild Horse Woman reflect the thoughts and interests of Terry Bisson, who completed the book after Miller's suicide. Either way, I do know that this book ought not to have been written.

    This book has quite a different focus than Canticle for Leibowitz. The emphasis was on one life in a period of war and turmoil in between the first two sections of the first book. I really struggled to get through it as there were many depictions of war, battles and lot of crises of conscience in the main character, a Leibowitz Monk named Blacktooth St. George. Parts were interesting, but overall I was disappointed and the ending didn't really satisfy.

    While it sitll had Miller's dry humor, it lost the epic-ness of Canticle and meandered quite a bit. My biggest disappointment was the shift in the politics and power struggles within and related to the Catholic Church. The devoutness of the leaders and practicing members was lost and every activity including the religious seemed hollow and forced.

    I read this book as a teenager (after having LOVED Canticle), and really just fell flat. I'm not sure how much of that was the questionable theology, though (I was EXTREMELY Catholic at that point), and the awkward-and-surprising sex scene. I'll have to reread it as an adult to really understand it better, I think.

    I adored the 'Canticle for Leibowitz' many years ago - have the radio tape. And, 40 years later, this is the sequal. I'm glad I wasn't holding my breath. 'Canticle.' was full of wonder and awe and imagination as people try to make sense of life after what seems to be nuclear war. This book takes us farther into the future, 3,000 AD+, and is bureaucratic personified. And dull as dirt to read.

    Like "A Canticle for Leibowitz " before it, this book deals with the struggles to rebuild the world (still) a millennia after nuclear holocaust. This time, instead of 3 stories, it is just one, that of Brother Blacktooth St. George. I enjoyed the additional story tucked between part 2 and 3 of Canticle, however this book was very wordy and drawn out. There are many characters and often those characters had more than one name. I had a hard time keeping track. It can be very sad, especially the la [...]

    Pales in comparison to its predecessor. While Miller fleshes out his world, he does so in such an encyclopedic, rote manner that it's easy to lose interest, which I did. Repeatedly. The prose is nothing special, about as polished as the last book. Most of the characters are bland, with the exception of a handful who are only interesting by virtue of their quirkiness/madness. The plot is perhaps the weakest point. It doesn't really follow a pattern and instead slows down at such infrequent interv [...]

    Un buen libro, aunque queda muy lejos de la mítica "Cántico por Leibowitz". Ni el estilo ni la temática ni la forma de narrar la historia están a la altura de su antecesora. A pesar de eso, insisto, sigue siendo un buen libro.

    I enjoyed the first four chapters, but once the story hit the road, it just couldn't hold my interest. It took me weeks to read the next few chapters, because I kept falling asleep. I'm abandoning this one.
