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.
It's a good book; solid characters, good story, decent ending.
These days I imagine that most people, like myself, read "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep" after having seen and enjoyed the movie "Blade Runner".
Like all PKD books this one speaks about the social injustice of the world and how what we think might be real could actually be a lie.
