I really enjoyed that novel, and thought that it was one of his best. Not *the* best [in my mind, thats a battle between _a scanner darkly_ and _ubik_], but definitely up there. This may be because i had previously read "the days of perky pat", one of his short stories. So when i finally read t3SoPE i was like "whoa. so *thats* what was really going on..."
I really did enjoy the mindfuck aspect of the novel, but the Gnostic crap just gets on my nerves.
I am definitely open to suggestions! Otherwise, I'm just taking books from my TBR stack.
The Atrocity Archives looks like entirely too much fun! Alan Turing is one of my heroes.
My library has a copy available too!
Sure! I'm going to be starting on "This Book Will Save Your Life" first anyway, and there are a couple more in the queue after that.
Thanks, it's a total crock! All books start out as 250 pages until I read them, then the total gets adjusted:
|total pages = |
is the number of books read so far.
Actually, most of the films have been based on short stories. Out of more than 40 novels written by Dick, I only know of 3 that have made it to film.
If you haven't yet read Ubik, do so. It is a work of mad genius, and I doubt anyone would dare try to make a film of it anytime soon.
