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.

My daughter needed this book for school. It was okay. She didn't care one way or the other for it. It was mainly just a school assignment.Published 5 days ago by MizzKat
The abrupt return to 'normality' at the end of the novel was one of the most disturbing messages about humans ability to disassociate from reality that I've ever read.Published 6 days ago by Ben Arnold
this is great! If you like this book and haven't watched the 1982 movie with Harrison Ford (Blade Runner) don't do it! It's a horrific interpretation!Published 10 days ago by Vivian Chandra
