Hey everybody, It's Matt Ahlschwede. I see you just discussed "A Canticle for Leibowitz", and even though I haven't read it lately, it is a very good book. I give it an 8. (I am a big fan of post-apocalyptic sci-fi) Wish I could have been there!

I also vote for an 8. I'd read it in junior high, this was the first time in all those years and I still was impressed and scared. Got the willies over the "red button" all over again now that I read it, feel compelled to go sign a no-nukes petition!

I vote an 8 too. Growing up in the Reagan era made me spooked & fascinated by post-nuclear fiction, and this book both gave me the heebie jeebies and enthralled again.
