I think it would be a better read, the story is quite complicated and has many convoluted subplots, it can be hard to keep track of what's going on at times. I definately had to go back and relisten a few times if I wasn't fully engaged.
Vurt; it's very heavily focused on the use of a psychedelic drug that creates a kind of alternate reality/parallel universe, which is why it can be hard to follow. But it was very interesting,
He did an amazing job creating distinction between the many characters' voices. Very good narrator.
It was entertaining, though I'm not sure I had any laugh out loud moments
I very much enjoyed this book, and if you like pkd's unique style, you'll love it. It causes you to constantly second guess what you think you already know. Because it is so intensely cerebral, it does take a significant amount of conscious attention to both pick up on the story line and maintain an understanding of the plot.
Easy to follow
This book was very entertaining. It is well written though it is fairly obviously written for a younger audience. I don't think that is a negative quality though, because you don't have to be fully engaged to follow along; you can half-listen or be distracted and you won't need to go back and relisten. You get very absorbed in the story, and you won't want to stop listening. I was sad when I finished the trilogy, much more quickly than I would have anticipated. The narrator wasn't as bad as many other reviewers said she was, only the voices for very young children were annoying to me.
