Lucy and I loved this book! So strange my brain hurt! But so intriguing and full of imagination! Truly the science fiction treat of 1969 😂 I love that the future was 1992 the year I was born. I am excited to read more form Philip K Dick. I found this great copy in the free bin at second and Charles. The cover is fantastic!
I was hoping to get back into this for #LitsyAtoZ, but I had to rethink sci fi in 2 different realms at once. Usually I keep my genes separate when I'm being a #bookwhore, but this may be too much sci fi at once. I'll wait until I'm done with #TheLunarChronicles to start this. How about that cover, though?? Hubba hubba! (Am I allowed to say that? 😳)
Ugh 😑 - this may be a case of me choosing the wrong medium. I may have to go back and read this, not just listen to it.
I was enjoying the narration. I felt like there was more humor in it than I would have injected myself. But at some point around 30% in, I lost that. The next 10% then became painful. And I have 300 other books to read/listen to. So I‘m moving on, with a note to find time to read at least the first couple chapters someday.
I chose my weirdest book cover for the #2kgiveaway
Have yet to read this book! I found on a freebie pile at 2nd and Charles. But the cover is what drew me to it!
Congrats of 2k wife you‘re the best!
I have no idea what the crap I just read, but man, was it ever trippy! I have a feeling I will be thinking about this book for quite some time. Luckily,I can sit and stare at our tree while I digest this. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Guys, I am so confused reading this book! It is trippy and weird. It feels like a cross between Doctor Who and Twilight Zone. #mindblown
Dang. Love this book cover and the dolman shirt style. Don't love that they decided to print light grey onto heather grey. 🤔 @outofprint if I ask real nice, would you offer this in black or burgundy or navy? Or even charcoal? Pretty please. 😇
There is a lot of Weird Shit in this book...even by PKD's standard! I did like it, though. It felt like a complete story whereas, e.g., The Man In The High Castle, was all very loosely and unsatisifyingly connected (albeit in a fascinating world). Most other PKD books I've read have strangely flat, anti-climactic endings...but this did pretty much the opposite by literally the last two pages pulling out a "LOL, SWERVE!". I had to laugh out loud.
So I went to book group this afternoon- The Wine and Ugg Boots book group - with three books. Two to return and one to loan. But came home with four books. Not helpful to my TBR situation. Thanks @Victoria_Clyne. 😝
