A great way to get into Philip K Dick s writing, with five stories that draw the reader progressively deeper into the writer s weirdly wonderful world, while dealing with the overarching theme of our humanity. Buy this Just do it Another book read a while ago but still on the to read list.I want to read everything PKD did, never boring, always entertaining and exciting.

Classic Sci Fi Whatcan I say PKD invented modern science fiction in my book And here are 5 of his best stories Yes, the Bladerunner one is there, and so is A Scanner Darkly, which is better. I can t believe I didn t know about Philip K Dick These novels are right up my alley I don t even know which I liked best, as each was so distinctive and mind altering I will say that I found Ubik a bit creepy to read before bed in a dark room by myself. J ai juste lu Ubik I know Phil Dick has great stature in the world of science fiction and many of his stories have been made into films However, I honestly found this book a real chore to read Many of his stories have elements of drug use in them, which is hardly surprising given his own drug use These elements of his stories massively detract from thehard boiled science fiction elements Too often the stories seemed to ramble along aimlessly and you start to wonder where on earth it s going.The films mad I know Phil Dick has great stature in the world of science fiction and many of his stories have been made into films However, I honestly found this book a real chore to read Many of his stories have elements of drug use in them, which is hardly surprising given his own drug use These elements of his stories massively detract from thehard boiled science fiction
