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.

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.
I have seen every version of Blade Runner I can get my hands on and finally (2015) decided to read the book... I was not let down. I wish I had read it much sooner.Published 2 hours ago by Goblynn93

I read it a while ago. But considering I can't remember what it was about- I am guessing it wasn't terribly interesting.
I think it was a more man friendly book. Read more
Is he an android, or isn't he? Philip Dick's novel keeps you off-balance, wondering who is who, and are the killers better than the prey? Read morePublished 16 days ago by Kindle Customer
