Dr. Bloodmoney
Dr. Bloodmoney | Philip K. Dick
5 posts | 9 read | 8 to read
"A masterpiece."Roberto Bolao What happens after the bombs drop? This is the troubling question Philip K. Dick addresses with Dr. Bloodmoney, or How We Got Along After the Bomb. It is the story of a world reeling from the effects of nuclear annihilation and fallout, a world where mutated humans and animals are the norm, and the scattered survivors take comfort from a disc jockey endlessly circling the globe in a broken-down satellite. And hidden amongst the survivors is Dr. Bloodmoney himself, the man responsible for it all. This bizarre cast of characters cajole, seduce, and backstab in their attempts to get ahead in what is left of the world, consequences and casualties be damned. A sort of companion to Dr. Strangelove, an unofficial and unhinged sequel, Dicks novel is just as full of dark comedy and just as chilling.

This is a very strange, but enjoyable book. Dick isn't really interested in plot, or linear storytelling, in his tale of a group of survivors in California after a nuclear war. Time and place jumps around, but the diverse characters makes the book worth reading. 4 💥💥💥💥

Ruthiella I‘ve not read this one, but “Dick isn‘t interested in plot or linear story telling” is an understatement! 😂 2mo
Bookwomble I enjoyed this one, too. Since when did life have a coherent plot or move in a straight line? 🤷🏻‍♂️😏 2mo

RamsFan1963 @vivastory I have Amnesia Moon in my TBR. It was you that recommended I read Dr. Bloodmoney first. 2mo
vivastory I hope you enjoy it. It's a strange, but unforgettable book 2mo
RamsFan1963 @vivastory Dick's books always leave me feeling like I've taken some form of hallucinogenic drug, which is why I enjoy them. So far, Dr Bloodmoney has been lots of fun, weird dark and creepy but still fun. 2mo

Early in the bright sun-yellowed morning, Stuart McConchie swept the sidewalk before Modern TV Sales & Service, hearing the cars along Shattuck Avenue and the secretaries hurrying on high heels to their offices, all the stirrings and fine smells of a new week, a new time in which a good salesman could accomplish things.

I am posting one book per day from my extensive to-be-read collection. No description or reason for wanting to read the book. Some are old and some will be new. Don't judge me - I have a lot of books.
