Jason Taverner is a Six, the result of top-secret government experiments forty years before that produced a handful of unnaturally bright and beautiful people - and he's the prime-time idol of millions until, inexplicably, all record of him is wiped from the data banks of Earth. Suddenly he is a man with no identity, in a police state where everyone is closely monitored. Can he ever be rich and famous again? Or are those memories just an illusion?

“Grief reunites you with what you've lost. It's a merging; you go with the loved thing or person. You follow it a far as you can go. But finally, the grief goes away and you phase back into the world. you don't ever completely come back from where you went - a fragment broken off your pulsing, pumping heart is there still. A cut that never heals.”

Yes!! Sometimes the hype sets up unrealistic expectations and then I feel let down. Either have to read right after publication or leave for a while!
I can be seduced into buying a book by the cover...it won‘t change my mind about what I think about the book though.
Anyone who hasn‘t played 😁
Thanks for tag @Birdsong28

TrishB @OrangeMooseReads I think age has made it endearing 🤷‍♀️ 6mo
OrangeMooseReads @TrishB I meant that my brother wouldn‘t have meant it endearing even over time that‘s the way he is 6mo

This doesn‘t go on my list of PKD favorites. This one is a bit of a mess- like I said in an earlier post; amateur psycho-babble with strong unhinged chauvinistic overtones, dragged through a myriad of plot holes; usually a huge fan of PKD, maybe this is just where my head is at in early 2019! Happy New Year everybody!

(1975) Television celebrity Jason Taverner wakes up in a cheap dingy hotel room, to a world where he doesn't exist. Nobody recognizes him, and even his closest friends and aquaintances have never heard of him. It's an unsettling piece of near-future science fiction that unravels into speculation about the relationship between perception and reality. It's among my favorites of PKD's works.

RamsFan1963 ....Also one of the best book titles ever. 11mo
swynn @RamsFan1963 Agreed. It's unusual, intriguing, and does the text perfectly. 11mo

This is oddly enjoyable though I'm finding it hard to make any sense of. What between the layman's psycho-babble, the chauvinistic tough-guy noir cliche, and made up words (quibble? and thungly?) I certainly know I'm not in Kansas anymore... and like our protagonist Jason (on a quest like his Argonaut namesake) I'm wondering how this will all turn out!

SusanInTiburon See, this is exactly why some of us never developed a sci fi habit. 3y
TheBookDream I am about to post mine and it is also a vintage science fiction cover. Vintage scifi is a special kind of blend of awful/amaze balls. 3y
KVanRead @TheBookDream They really are kind of glorious. @SusanInTiburon Exactly 😂 3y

It's my last day of freedom before the semester starts so I'm trying to finish a bunch of things today, and this was first on the list. It's not my favorite by PKD, and I actually pretty much hated it until the last three chapters or so, but the ending was pretty good. I've read others by him I liked far better so this won't put me off reading more.
