    Delmak-O is a dangerous planet. Though there are only 14 citizens, no one can trust anyone else and death can strike at any moment. The planet is vast and largely unexplored, populated mostly by gelatinous cube-shaped beings that give cryptic advice in the form of anagrams. Deities can be spoken to directly via a series of prayer amplifiers and transmitters, but they may not be happy about it. And the mysterious building in the distance draws all the colonists to it, but when they get there each sees a different motto on the front.

    like a mixture between lost, maze runner, and a couple others that i feel like if i mentioned the name it might give away parts of the story. It didn't seam to me that this book is usually regarded as one of his best but it is in my top three so far! along with Martian time slip and three stigmata, highly recommended read and it is shocking that he wrote this so long ago, the technology is very much something a modern sifi author would write about. I apologize for the poor penmanship of this review, if it feels like a text message it is because I am writing it on my cell phone. Read on!

    Jason logs into Awaken Online fed-up with reality. He's in desperate need of an escape, and this game is his ticket to finally feeling the type of power and freedom that are so sorely lacking in his real life. Awaken Online is a brand new virtual reality game that just hit the market, promising an unprecedented level of immersion. Yet Jason quickly finds himself pushed down a path he didn't expect. In this game, he isn't the hero. There are no damsels to save. There are no bad guys to vanquish.

    Philip K. Dick's impassioned final novel is a wild and visionary alternate history of the United States. It is 1969, and a paranoid president has convulsed America in a vicious war against imaginary internal enemies. As the country slides into fascism, a struggling science-fiction writer named Philip K. Dick is trying to keep from becoming one of that war's casualties.

    Having read 12 of PKDs other books, some of the bigger titles and some small, I felt it was time to start the big stuff, I have read this as a start to the Valis trilogy and am very glad I did. Having not read the other three I can already guess that this is the nice, compact, PKD novel type story of Valis and I feel the next three will become a lot more personal. For anyone wanting to tackle the trilogy or just looking for a great stand alone PKD story this one is on my top 3 for sure. Performance as an audiobook was very well done as well.

    In Our Friends from Frolix 8, the world is run by an elite few. And what determines whether one is part of the elite isn’t wealth or privilege, but brains. As children, every citizen of Earth is tested; some are found to be super-smart New Men and some are Unusuals with various psychic powers. The vast majority are Undermen, performing menial jobs in an overpopulated world.

    Story

    Not the best Dick ever but worth a read for sure. There were a few chapters, mainly philosophical that really made the book for me. As I heard someone say, if you only read one PKD book this probably shouldn't be it. If you're like me and read the first one and then within a few days had several others under your belt grab it. I will say the performance was outstanding. Each character was extremely unique from the others and captured the essence of what each was going through in every bit of dialogue, the dialogue just felt incredibly real and with some characters it changed greatly as they went through different changes and emotions, this is the main reason I gave the overall a 5 star.

    On an arid Mars, local bigwigs compete with Earth-bound interlopers to buy up land before the Un develops it and its value skyrockets. Martian Union leader Arnie Kott has an ace up his sleeve, though: an autistic boy named Manfred who seems to have the ability to see the future. In the hopes of gaining an advantage on a Martian real estate deal, powerful people force Manfred to send them into the future, where they can learn about development plans.

    Glen Runciter runs a lucrative business - deploying his teams of anti-psychics to corporate clients who want privacy and security from psychic spies. But when he and his top team are ambushed by a rival, he is gravely injured and placed in "half-life," a dreamlike state of suspended animation. Soon, though, the surviving members of the team begin experiencing some strange phenomena, such as Runciter's face appearing on coins and the world seeming to move backward in time.

    The story and writing was great but the performance by Luke Daniels really brought the writing to life. Each character had a distinct, lively voice that quickly became recognizable. The combination of story and performance led to an easy 5 star selection. This is my first PKD novel and will certainly not be the last. This is my first attempt to branch out into fictional novels as I typically enjoy reading non-fiction, I am happy to have read this.
