I am not entirely sure how I feel about this book. This might well be because I don't think I've understood it completely quite yet - which, judging by the other reviews, puts me into good company.

Many aspects of the book are tremendous fun while others are in my opinion overdone: The future that Dick describes is not implausible at all (While we may not pay for our doors to open, there are many things that we allegedly don't own any more but rent or license - e-books are just one example.) and I found its portrayal hilarious. The clothes descriptions have been mentioned elsewhere and I found them funny at first but at some point they got on my nerves. The way the characters interact often struck me as strange - walking away from conversations, not reacting to obvious rudeness etc. - maybe this can be attributed to their situation, they are nearly-dead psychics, well inertials, in cold-pac after all, but it sometimes took me out of full immersion in the book's world.

Especially the first half of the book is very witty and I read it speedily while, for me, the latter half or third dragged on a bit. Some of the concepts and explanations introduced in that part just seemed too far-fetched or disconnected to make real sense - but as I said, maybe I just didn't get it.

Anyway, although three stars doesn't look like much, I feel that I will read this book again at some point. I have a hunch that much more will become clear with a second reading and I might just grow to appreciate it much more. For the record, I read the [b:The Philip K. Dick Reader|14183|The Philip K. Dick Reader|Philip K. Dick|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1388187295s/14183.jpg|1261788] and loved most of the stories in it, especially the mind-bending ones, so I guess it's not a lost cause. ( )

One of the best books written by one of my favorite sci-fi authors. Essential components: a future "internet of things" world; cryonics; thoughts on the nature of time, space, and reality. Space travel (interplanetary) is incidental to everything else in the book. The Audible edition was very well narrated. ( )

Dick's books are really gumshoe mysteries, set in a weird future. I'm not a huge mystery fan (they make me feel dumb for not being able to solve them), but I am a sci-fi fan, and Dick's visions of the future are pretty...Unik. ( )

I really liked this book. trippy, a bit inception like, and a bit detective novel. well worth a read or reread ( )

Neil gaiman writes a sci Fi novella while tripping down a rabbit hole. the cogs don't quite line up. interesting turns you thought the story was going to take are littered on the side of the road, just thrown out of a car window. each character was a two dimensional cut out in a 5d universe. but maybe it was just kuz I read it on audiobook.

category: literary sci Fi ( )
