The genetically warped "chickenhead" John Isidore has visions of a tomb-world where entropy has finally won. And everyone plugs in to the spiritual agony of Mercer, whose sufferings for the sins of humanity are broadcast several times a day. Prefiguring the religious obsessions of Dick's last novels, this book asks dark questions about identity and altruism. After all, is it right to kill the killers just because Mercer says so? --Roz Kaveney, Amazon.co.uk --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

Interesting beginning, very exciting plot, confusing ending. This is a very inspiring book that one cannot finish in a hurry but get to think more and reflect more. Read morePublished 13 hours ago by BAI XUESONG
