Narrated by Tom Weiner
This was an audiobook reread for me, so it was a bit weird in parts. There's a fair amount of Latin, but that's not too much of an obstacle. It's a book that's hard to pin down. It's a post-apocalyptic view of the world after a nuclear war. The story centres around a Benedictine abbey in the Utah desert, so when they share stories about the world's end they talk about Lucifer as the atomic bomb and the demon Fallout. The abbey is tasked with preserving knowledge from before the war, most of which they no longer comprehend, and we follow several characters at crucial points throughout the abbey's history until things come full circle.
The narration was good, and overall I enjoyed listening to it, but it wasn't a very happy read and some of the catholicism was weird and pretty out there.
