Eye in the Sky | Philip K. Dick
Pickpick

So clever! I couldn't put it down. Alternate realities growing increasingly dark and twisted. Great suspense and excitement throughout. Some incredible description and a premise that makes you question your own values and reality. I just love his books.

”We are living in a computer-programmed reality, and the only clue we have to it is when some variable is changed, and some alteration in reality occurs. We have the overwhelming impression that we were reliving the present - deja vu.”

Our Friends from Frolix 8 | Philip K. Dick
post image
Mehso-so

This typical late period PKD- characters come and go through a loosely unhinged story line. There are echoes of his tighter more straightforward novels, but overall it meanders from a point to an end neither of which we really care about. The ridiculous naming doesn‘t help either. However, ever a fan, this picks into the 3 1/2 star range because when/if you give yourself over to it, the topsey-turvey world somehow comes into focus.

Ubik | Philip K. Dick

PKD at his best. Refreshingly weird from start to end in a could-have-been-future where even doors ask for money before they open.

Ubik | Philip K. Dick

What is Ubik? That is the question in this very strange book. Oh and also what is Half Life and how is it different from death, how do you control people with psychic powers, what happened on Mars and why is reality deteriorating and also what is reality. Yes is very Phillip K Dick and I ended it as confused in as many ways as I was at the start of it. In some ways it reminded me of O'Brien‘s Third Policeman in others it is its own strange beast

Laura317 It was a strange book, for sure. I quite liked it. 2mo

“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.”

Bookwomble I like this one. His "mainstream" books are good. 5mo
Pruzy Great hashtag! 5mo
dystopianaut @Bookwomble so do i! i was sort of dreading reaching the point of reading his mainstream novels- and feeling guilty about feeling that way- but i‘ve actually really liked them all! such interesting character studies. they also give such a clear glimpse into the time they were written. i only have one left now- “mary and the giant”, which i‘m currently reading. have you read it? 5mo

dystopianaut @Pruzy thank you so much! i‘ve spent the last year working through PKD‘s oeuvre, hence #myPKDjourney. only 4 left to read!!! then onto his short stories. 🙂 do you have a favorite PKD? 🖤 5mo
Bookwomble @dystopianaut Yes, but many years ago when it first came out in Picador, so I don't remember a great deal about it. It's the record store one isn't it? I think it draws a lot on PKD's experience working in a record shop. 5mo
dystopianaut @Bookwomble yes it is! i‘ve loved reading all of his books back-to-back because it really highlights all the recurring themes, names, places, characters, etc and also makes you realize just how much he draws from his own life experiences. 5mo
Pruzy @dystopianaut Yes! Now Wait for Last Year was one of my favourites, as was The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch. What did you think of these two? 5mo
dystopianaut @Pruzy i love both of those! my favorite PKDs are the ones where he REALLY blurs the lines of reality, constantly shifting back and forth to disorient & unnerve the reader, which he does very well in both of those. two of my other favorites for that reason are ubik (of course) and maze of death. 🖤 4mo
