    I could say that I love Dick, but that would be weird I do very much enjoy Philip K Dick s writing and though this is not one of his best, the Pizza and Sex Rule applies to him ie just as even bad pizza and or sex is still pretty good, bad PKD is as well And this is not bad at all The first mistake that a new reader would make is to watch Blade Runner and expect a novelization of that film it was LOOSELY based upon the book I m a big fan of the Ridley Scott film starring Harrison Ford and Rutger Hauer, but the movie diverged from Phillip K Dick s literature early on The book is far bleak than the film, if you can believe that, and much intricate and complicated Blade Runner benefits from a simplified storyline The author was far ahead of his time both in the complexity of his story and the perspective from which he writes There are elements of Brave New World, I, Robot, and Dune but the author has a unique voice and the story is an original It is not an excellent work, as there are gaps and inconsistencies and many loose ends that are never tied in, but the...

    It takes five full pages for a character to buy a goat and ONE FRIGGIN SENTENCE for a character to fall in love This book was so amazing in the beginningand then suddenly everything plummeted downhill It was almost as if Dick got 150 pages in and then said awwww screw ituh, sentence, sentence, sentence, THE END Why did there need to be any sort of love storyline anyway Along with being the only geek who made it through puberty without reading Phillip K Dick books, I also am one of the few who has never seen Blade Runner I m a little scared to now.I was so convinced I was going to give this one 5 stars while I read the first 100 pages It felt truly original, hauntingly believable, and seemed gearing up for ...

    It s the basic condition of life to be required to violate our own identity Philip K Dick, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep Having hooked up all the iridescent wires from my XC 23 Weird and Crazy in Fiction Test Machine to Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep , I m here to report results showed the needle registering a maximum ten out of ten on each and every page Quite a feat Quite a novel But then again, maybe we shouldn t be so surprised after all, this is Philip K Dick One of the most bizarre reading experiences anyone could possibly encounter Rather than attempting to comment on plot or the sequence of events too wild to synopsize , here are ten ingredients the one and only PKD mixes together in his outlandish science fictional stew Rick Deckard the novel s main character, a bounty hunter on the city police force assigned to track down and destroy human like androids that have emigrated illegally from Mars The year 2021, the place San Francisco in the aftermath of nuclear war, deadly dust everywhere, many species wiped out The government says androids must remain on Mars and continue doing all the dirty work for humans who have migrated to the red planet Darn The problem is androids, especially the most recently improved version with their new Nexus 6 brain unit, have been given way too much intelligence Voigt Kampff Empathy Test Fortunately, bounty hunters can administer a test to determine who is human and who is android The central dilem...

    I Love Dick There I ve said it No, not a Mood Organ or blood filled skin sack made to facilitate reproduction but Philip K Dick Is it really possible for androids to acquire human traits like empathy and the desire to understand the meaning of life and avoid death at all costs What would the role of socialism play in an android world Would self aware androids seek out to destroy anything that threatened their existence or tried to control their thoughts ie programming A Google search revealed that the search for intelligent android life is alive and well I learned that there are no less than 15 groups attempting to create intelligent android life.Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep was a joyous adventure into mans struggles with ideas such as real vs unreal, life vs un life, mind control, intelligence vs mental deficiency, decay vs regeneration, the value of religion real or imagined and the value of individualism vs the collective Sounds like something that should have a King James Version doesn t it I would consider attending mass at a church where the virtues and values explored in this book were studied and preached.Would an intelligent android society have a need for religion even if they understood that the religion they followed was created divinely inspired or not to give them hope and a forum where they would feel like a part of something bigger and consequential than oneself What value does religion have in t...

    An android walks into a bar Hey , the bartender says, Only people with feelings are allowed in here You need empathy in order to be in a joke like this, or at least have something people can relate to Oh, don t worry , the android replies, I definitely feel empathy Relieved, the bartender invites him over to the bar What are you having A beer would be great , the android replies The bartender, evidently approving of this fine choice, gladly obliges and goes on to cater for the other guests The android sits there for a while, drinking, looking, thinking He decides he wants of that beer Hey bartender , he shouts, Come give me a refill, my glass is empathy ___The title of this edition, Blade Runner , is very fitting as it shows to which great extent my reading experience tied in to the movie This might seem strange because plot wise there are very few similarities between this book and the film And despite them being so different, I can only say both are supremely good It s impossible for me to say which I prefer One element where the book wins it over the movie is the title, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep , which was used as a subtitle in this edition of the book The contents remain the same as in the original book, but the cover work is evidently made with the movie in mind The way the novel influenced the movie probably goes without saying The central theme has been picked up man managed to create an inferior version of man in order to make use...

    Is Deckard an android An android, he said, doesn t care what happens to another android That s one of the indications we look for Then, Miss Luft said, you must be an android That stopped him he stared at her.This is all I could think about when reading I really looked for evidence to back the idea up, though the novel only provided me with speculation and partial facts For every little suggestion in the text that he is a robot, there is an effective counter argument Somehow, though, I am not entirely convinced Maybe there was once a human who looked like you, and somewhere along the line you killed him and took his place And your superiors don t know I think Phillip K Dick left it purposefully open to an extent, and that s the entire point of the novel.What is life How do we define it and what separates us from entities that simulate almost every human experience and emotion Very little Phillip K Dick creates a city full of doubt and conspiracy Androids could be anywhere and they could be anyone As technology advances it becomes harder and harder for them to be detected by police They even think they a...

    Raise your hand if you saw my name next to a five star rating and thought you were dreaming Dreaming of electric sheep Boom Ohhhhhhhhhhh baby How have I not read this until now Why haven t I seen Blade Runner before Why Why WhyyyyyyyyyyyEverything about this book is just, just, so just so everything about this book, man, this book, it s just so it is This book Awesome This book is awesome Words I m trying to eliminate from my vocabulary man, awesome, cool, legit, nice, word It s been a real struggle so far Anyway.I loved this book, obviously It made me think It made me turn the pages It made me move my eyes ferociously back and forth The chapters were irrelevant I blew right through them like running a red light I felt the same exhilarating feeling I would have felt if I was actually running a red light That s how this book makes you feel, like you re speeding in a car and running all the red lights And there are no bounty hunters or blade runners to worry about No early retirement.The Nexus 6 is the name of a highly advanced robot, a cellular telephone, and probably an elite Quidditch broomstick I wouldn t be surprised Keep checking Potter Are you a fan of Westworld Fahrenheit 451 Brave New World Blade Runner Battlestar Galactica Star Wars Star Trek Die Hard Ex Machina If you said YES...
