I enjoyed the idea of a book which took cues from the series Lost, at least in terms of setting up suspense and intriguing the audience.
It was well executed. No complaints.
I was immensely disappointed by this book. Weightless and boring.
Phillip K. Dick has a way of engendering a feeling of intense dread and anticipation in the most tense moments of his works. I would liken his skill, in this regard, to that of Quentin Tarantino; the opening scene from Inglorious Basterds is a great example of what I'm trying to describe.
Most of Dick's novels have the same recurring motifs; he is always ready to question reality and forces the reader to contemplate the big questions that surround our existence.
No, but it was certainly compelling.
The genius of the novel is self-evident in any format.
I really loved the scrode-riders.
His characters are filled with life. Peter Kenny and he have a lot in common in this respect.
Yes. It's too long to listen to in one sitting, obviously, but I finished it in a few days.
Near the top, for sure. It was very original, and among the best sci-fi I've experienced. SO much literary value here.
The book is written in very elegant prose which is at the same time easily digestible and entertaining. The pacing is superb.
Winston and I both struggled with similar difficulties throughout childhood. That he overcame his is great inspiration to me.
Certainly. The novel is a good one, but perhaps a little pedantic in its unsubtle social commentary. Just not Steinbeck's best novel, really.
Sure. He did fine.
Probably. I imagine that, if well cast, this could make a charming motion picture.
While the Hee-chee story line is a great one, this book seems to have been written as a means to an end; it is an underwhelming and anti-climactic bridge between the first and third novels in this series.
I would have preferred a more satisfying ending.
Don't want to give it away, but the "prayer fans" revelation was interesting.
It inspired me to avoid further sequels, unfortunately.
