This was my third (and last) PKD book, and about 2/3rds of the way through it was the same, "is this real, what is reality, alternate states, dope smoking hippy crap". Just like Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, Ubik will make a MUCH better movie than book. At least Androids and Ubik had interesting ideas to start. Man in High Castle was just boring.
Nothing I can think of. It was a disjointed mess.
Yes, read / listening to Ubik now. I enjoyed Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep.
Liked the voice inflections for the Japanese speakers and thinkers. The halting German was good as well.
The whole thing.
The story really is a mess. Robert Childen, Frank Fink, what the heck do they have do do with the plot? All they do is flesh out events. Julia? "Oh, ya. I killed him for you." Abendsen, "Oh, OK, thanks." WTH? Exceptionally lame ending.
Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep was engrossing, and thought provoking. I just started Ubik and enjoying it also. The Man in the High Castle? I would not recommend it to someone in prison, that I didn't like!
