The Man in the High Castle
The Man in the High Castle | Philip K. Dick
The single most resonant and carefully imagined book of Dicks career. New York Times It's America in 1962. Slavery is legal once again. The few Jews who still survive hide under assumed names. In San Francisco, the I Ching is as common as the Yellow Pages. All because some twenty years earlier the United States lost a warand is now occupied by Nazi Germany and Japan. This harrowing, Hugo Award-winning novel is the work that established Philip K. Dick as an innovator in science fiction while breaking the barrier between science fiction and the serious novel of ideas. In it Dick offers a haunting vision of history as a nightmare from which it may just be possible to wake. Winner of the Hugo Award

This was underwhelming. In an alternate history where the bad guys won WWII, we focus on the Japanese controlled west coast of the former USA. There's a strange writing style that seems to be attributed to only some characters' portions of the story & it doesn't lend itself to the American vs Japanese differences. A few of the Americans continually make decisions based on the I Ching which is like a prophesy-telling book. Why? Is it required?⬇️

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick Have some Americans gladly turned over their free-will to this book? Hell if I know! This is just one of the many aspects of life in this world that doesn't quite make sense because it isn't explored. The Germans don't play much of a role in the book, and some of the characters & situations feel like filler, as there really is no point in their involvement. Not at all what I expected from an award-winning modern classic. ⬇️

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick Maybe the Amazon show is less tedious. Despite the claim on this book cover, .my hair did not stand on end.

I can see why this became such a cult classic. The setting - an alternative world where Nazi Germany and Japan have won WWII - is the scary backdrop for the psychological and philosophical journeys of the rather diverse set of characters. For me the writing was a bit too detached and too interested in the points it was trying to make, but it‘s definitely a thought provoking book in many ways.

1. Enjoyed the show and love Philip K Dick, so this was an easy pick.
2. What if the Bronze Age empires didn't suddenly and mysteriously collapse in the 12th century B.C.? What would our modern world look like?
3. Worse is always better! 😄

ozma.of.oz Woah! 2 is a fascinating thing to think about! Thank you for posting! 13mo

Speculative fiction set in a 1962 America where WWII ended very differently. This inspired the Amazon Prime series. Some of Philip K Dick's other works inspired Blade Runner, Total Recall and Minority Report. Wow. ⭐⭐⭐

🎧📚 Alternate history! It‘s 1962, 15 years after we lost WWII. Japan rules the west coast, Nazi Germany rules the East. The 2 are divided by a neutral zone called The Rocky Mountain States.

Slaves exist. Super racial profiling.

5 main characters.: Childen, Tagomi, Baynes, Frink & Julianne

1st 1/2 of the book is in the west & 2nd in the neutral zone so the only Nazi info you get is from 2nd hand opinions & info dumps.

⭐️⭐️⭐️2/3 👇🏻

Twainy
This was written 60 years ago which explains a lot!! The attitudes in that era show up all over the book. So many ?‘s left unanswered & no time spent in the East. Was there supposed to be a 2nd book? Ends with a twist.

I joined a book club & the first chosen book arrived a day early today. 🤓 I‘ve resisted as I really don‘t have the time to read a book but I‘m going to try it. I can always fall back on the audiobook but I‘d prefer to read & anotate. I take my book clubs seriously 🙄 I have no idea how but I haven‘t seen this tv show or read the book so this should be fun! It‘s only 15 chapters. Sigh. We shall see. I remain hopeful! 😁

I have been crocheting A LOT. I had a friend ask if I could make a couple of masks for her and her husband. Then it kind of exploded into a bunch of people wanting them. I haven‘t heard anything from unemployment yet. It‘s been over a month now since I filed. Luckily making masks (and so far one pizza blanket) has helped to give me a little bit of extra money for essentials. I signed up for kindle unlimited and canceled audible.

Finally, another classic I've been meaning to read for so long. To me, this book only unfolded a couple of hours after I've finished it. While reading, I never knew what to think about it. After a bit of research and going over the story in my head it came to me what a great piece of art this is.

Some things just take their time.
And I'm sure to read this one again.

Bookwomble Great review 😊 It is a book that lingers, and which rewards rereading. 3y
TrishB Love this book ❤️ 3y
Buechersuechtling Oh, I think I would love to read it. My significant other and I started to watch the streaming series of the same name that obviously is based on this novel but I need to admit that the further the first season got the more it confused me. 🤔 So I would hope that the “original” would allow me to better understand Dick‘s intention. 3y

“On some other world, possibly it is different. Better. There are clear good and evil alternatives. Not these obscure admixtures, these blends, with no proper tool by which to untangle the components.”

Someone on Goodreads just 'liked' my non-existent review of this book, which was thoughtful and kind of them. I did save this quote, though, which as ever with PKD seems to presciently sum up the present state of affairs.

Been a while since I last spent time with this work.

"We do not have the ideal world, such as we would like, where morality is easy because cognition is easy. Where one can do right with no effort because he can detect the obvious."

It continues to speak sadly, starkly, hopefully, truly...

Survey Question - Would you count this as 1 book or 4 books?

I doubt I'll read any more than The Man in the High Castle. It went too much over my head and the premise was pretty frightening. I would hate to think about Germany and Japan winning and a concentration camp in NYC. Of course, because the occupying government was racist, some Americans took advantage of it to show their true colors. (shudder) If you read it, please help me understand.

After several days of treadmill due to unfit walking conditions, I finally ventured outside. It was 63F degrees (only 3 days ago it was -5!!!), but as you can see it‘s still icy and treacherous. It‘s going to get cold again, and more snow is supposedly on the way. But it did feel good to get out. I walked to the Dunkin‘ Donuts and got a coffee to reward myself for walking outside today. #LitsyWalkers #audiowalk

I am doing so horribly for #24in48 and #24B4Monday. I only managed to finish one book (crazy day). I also accidentally reset my reading timer. 🤦🏻‍♀️ Oh well, I must power-through! As for the one book I finished, I‘m pretty conflicted. I enjoyed the details of the alternate world and conceptually, the premise is very interesting. But, I did not enjoy his writing style (not enough emotion) and I didn‘t connect with any of the characters.

Where the Amazon original series fails, I had hoped the book would deliver. I'm so disappointed. Life is too short to read a bad book. I love the idea--this surmises the Reich had won the war--the US is divided between Japan and Germany. The Amazon series has plot holes to drive a Mac truck through. Phillip K. Dick annoyingly verbose. #nope #canteven

While the basic setting is the same the book is very different from the TV adaptation. The latter is a rollicking thriller, while the book is much more philosophical and speculates on the nature of fate and reality, with a huge twist at the end.

Highly recommended ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I am looking forward to returning to the TV series - somehow I drifted away after season 1.

I‘ve streamed the series and loved the characters, on screen they are rounded and the universe is real an cohesive. I picked up the book knowing it was going to be different but hoping that it would offer more perspective to what I‘d watched. Still got a quarter of the book to go and I‘ve noticed that two of my favourite characters are ones I don‘t like in the book.
