Basically, I liked the “android bounty hunter” part and didn’t care about the Mercerism part. The emphasis on the latter yielded the 2 stars for “it was ok.” I really.

She acted like a “jealous” mistress who was spurned by her lover and sought revenge by killing the thing she perceived that he loved most.
This was the equivalent of a jilted ex-girlfriend slashing the tires and keying her old boyfriend’s prized vehicle. Androids don’t have empathy for other androids and are inherently selfish, therefore I don’t think she was particularly upset by the retiring of her friends.
Hell hath no fury like a woman scornedeven an android woman. I never really got what the empathy box was or what it did? Chris Chang From wiki: Dick that can connect users to each other and both transmit and receive emotions in a video simulation of this old chap Mercer walking up the mountain.
If I’m not wrong, in the book there’s a part where Rick refuses to use the empathy box because his happiness in owning a real goat would then be shared with others whereas he would feel others’ pain in the process. I guess the empathy box lets users feel what others feel, and these users are usually avid followers of “Mercerism” which is nothing more than a religion that allows people to connect spiritually.
The fact that the media in the book debunked Mercerism doesn’t matter, because the fact is that even though Mercerism may be created in a video studio, the emotions transmitted through the machine are real, and gives users something to believe in and hold onto in this depressing future. Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. This book was so amazing in the beginning It was almost as if Dick got pages in and then said “awwww screw it 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 pages. It felt truly original, hauntingly believable, and seemed gearing up for some big revelation. Man, did this one disappoint. Dick, Thank you for the lovely short story View all 55 comments. Honestly, I don’t really know how I feel about this book at all.
All I know is that I was underwhelmed. I think it just wasn’t the right time for me to read this. Maybe in a few years I’ll give it another go, because I liked the concept. View all 9 comments. This is the book Blade Runner was based on.
Which is why I decided to read it. You might think this was a bad idea on my part. You might be right. This novel is a cult classic. You’re supposed to love cult classics right?
Not only did I not love this book, it pretty much bored me to death, too. Don’t get me wrongthis book is somewhat brilliant.
Well, okay, if it had actually been brilliant I’d obviously have given it a 4-star rating. So let’s just say this book is po This is the book Blade Runner was based on. So let’s just say this book is potentially brilliant.
Some of elektrin themes PKD develops here are very interesting and I loved some of his elektribe Why am I not surprised? Eleitrine problem is, at pages, the book felt like it was pages long and I struggled to finish it. Blade Runner is one of my favourite movies ever so you might think that this is a case of “the movie was sanhaju than the book,” but it’s not.
Actually, Blade Runner has little to do with the book and, strangely enough, it doesn’t do it justice. The movie is just too simplistic compared to the book. And yet both are complementary. And yet I still like the movie a lot more than I do the novel.
Does this make any sense to you? But there you have it. Blade Runner lacks the philosophical dimension of the book and its complexity. Mercer a messiah-like character is completely left out of the movie so you don’t get the theological aspect of the novel either. Some of the themes developed by PKD are present but the movie never quite manages to convey the full extent of their significance. And yet Blade Runner is still one of my favourite movies ever. I think the main problem I have with these electric sheep is PKD’s writing.
I wouldn’t know how to describe it but it just doesn’t do anything for me. I don’t know, but reading this novel was a complete drag. I’ve read sanjanu few of PKD’s novels and still haven’t come across one I actually enjoyed. I always love the idea behind the story but the actual book?

The other BIG problem I have with this book is the way women are portrayed. Bad move PKD, this is one of my major pet peeves. There are few female characters in the novel and let me tell you, PKD doesn’t paint a very attractive picture of the female gender.
Women here are weak, lli, plain crazy, cold-blooded, sometimes depicted as having a whore-like behaviours and generally flawed.

What also bothered me is the fact that there is only one actual woman in the story and a pretty pathetic one at that. The other female characters are all androids. Then again I might be reading too much into it. And ultimately it doesn’t matter: Dick, cult author or not, I’m done with you. Yes, I have done it again. I just gave yet another cult classic a 2-star rating. Time for a very big sigh. View all 12 comments. Contrary to popular opinion, I did not think this was a very good book. The plot barely holds together as the implausibilities stack up and makes you think about all things other than the plot development.
In the movie huh, avoided mentioning the movie until the third sentence, that was at least one more than I would have guessed much of the illogical stuff such as why build androids that cannot be distinguished from humans other than by intricate testing or a bone marrow analysis! Keeping a good pace in the storytelling and washing over the viewer with nice images counteracts reasoning in a way that a text never does. And if you start to question anything about the world in the novel, the whole build just gets annoying.
It hasn’t aged very well, there are plenty of examples of Dick foretelling the future surprisingly poor with regards to the book being published as late as For example, Deckard runs around with his background material on the “andys” he’s meant to find and retire on onionskin paper carbon copies.
The world building is nowhere near grand enough for a future of war ravaged world where most humans left for Mars, hovercars and radioactive dust covering everything. A lot of writers have pulled all these things off better and earlier.
Characterization is not much to be happy about either – except for the curiously detailed descriptions of all female breasts, there is not so much to learn. I may have missed something about the odd ending, but I’m not prepared to double back.
