Clans of the Alphane Moon | [Philip K. Dick]

Clans of the Alphane Moon

For years, the third moon in the Alphane system was used as a psychiatric hospital. But when war broke out between Earth and the Alphanes, the hospital was left unguarded and the inmates set up their own society, made up of competing factions based on their particular mental illnesses. When Earth sends a delegation to take back the colony, they find enclaves of depressives, schizophrenics, paranoiacs, and others uniting to repel what they see as a foreign invasion.

Publisher's Summary

For years, the third moon in the Alphane system was used as a psychiatric hospital. But when war broke out between Earth and the Alphanes, the hospital was left unguarded and the inmates set up their own society, made up of competing factions based on their particular mental illnesses. When Earth sends a delegation to take back the colony, they find enclaves of depressives, schizophrenics, paranoiacs, and others uniting to repel what they see as a foreign invasion. Meanwhile, back on Earth, CIA agent Chuck Rittersdorf and his wife, Mary, go through a bitter divorce, and Chuck loses everything. But when he is assigned to clandestinely control an android accompanying Mary to the Alphane moon, he sees an opportunity to get revenge.

    Story
    "Classic Sci-Fi"

    Philip K. Dick's books are slightly dated with their view of the near to distant future, but the story is engaging and keeps you interested throughout. The narrator does a very good job as well.

    Story
    "Creative Sci-Fi You'd Expect From Dick"

    Not a classic PKD novel, but has enough twist and turns merged with the creative sci-fi you'd expect from one of Dick's books.

    The novel combines two separate stories that begin to converge over time in typical Dick style. First the clans that make up the Alphane Moon 3M2, the second a CIA workers messy divorce and struggles with life. I don't want to spoil the storyline as going in with nothing is far better for his works, especially with this novel.

    Suffice to say this is a well written, imaginative novel that will make you smile at the various concepts developed.

    David de Vries does a great job in narration and brings the human and alien voices to life.

    A five star by itself. In comparison to other Philip K. Dick works; a seven out of ten.

    Story
    "Not his best work"

    i have to say, if it wasn't for the narrator, i wouldn't have been able to stomach this story.

    I am a big fan of k. Dick and I've read most of his work, but I was somewhat disappointed with it. Specially because it spends very long time building the characters, but the end lacks any substance with respect of the story itself.
