Another short, thrill-filled ride by Philip K. Dick. The prose is sharp and the action is quick and unpredictable. Everything that most readers like about Dick is here and he keeps the reader entertained throughout the duration of the ride. A good read. ( )

Es una historia alucinante, con elementos policiales, políticos y demenciales, debería ser lectura obligatoria. ( )

Full of ideas, vivid images, and exciting scenes, this book deserves more than the three stars I gave it. But they say there is a reader for every book, and unfortunately, I'm not it. Dick wrote Solar Lottery in 1955, and it shows its age. Still, for any lover of classic sci fi, this is one you should not miss. ( )

I cast about quite a while for a book to fill the "first book by a favourite author" square. I kept thinking of authors whose first works I'd already read, before finally settling on Philip K. Dick. Then it was a matter of finding a copy. I visited several bookstores (in multiple states) before finally giving up and checking this out at the library,

This is very recognizably a Dick novel, most notably for the giant, all-encompassing system of governance designed to outsmart human failings (most specifically, our grasping for power), but which, in reality, mostly inspires cheating and superstition and does absolutely nothing for the vast majority of humanity. Also, something which may or may not be the presence of a non-human intelligence at the fringes of the solar system, but could also just be the ravings of one deluded crackpot. Perhaps a little bit less "What is reality? What is human?" than the normal Dickian novel.

The female characters are pretty standard 1950s sci-fi fare, but what can you do?

Some praise this book for being less prone to the deluded paranoia of Dick's later years, but personally, I have always liked that about him. This book feels more consistent with sci-fi of the time and less uniquely PKD.

As I was thinking about what I wanted to write about this book, I realized this would be a great choice for a movie adaptation. We all know how much Hollywood loves Dick, and this one comes pre-loaded with action: a robot assassin, flights to the moon, high speed chases, people getting shot in the face, etc., etc. Of course, not I'm going to spend the rest of the day obsessing over who should play Leon Cartwright.
