This is a fascinating look at short stories that were perverted or realized with varying degrees of success (and fidelity) by translation into movies. Most stories are quite entertaining, but dated in their "future tech" and also in the sociental attitudes implicit in Dick's writing. All in all, an enjoyable, if not deeply moving read.
This was my first BEE book, and I found it by turns fascinating and frightening. It's a great story that is moving, scary, and involving. The narration is very strong as well. Very "Stephen King" esque, and an interesting act of meta-fiction (writing about himself fictionally).
A fantastic book (but not as emotionally fulfilling as the sequel), dealing with alienation and wish fulfillment in a fast-moving and entertaining setting. One of the benchmark SF novels of all time.
