About the Author

Philip K. Dick (1928-1982) was born in Chicago but lived in California for most of his life. He went to college at Berkeley for a year, ran a record store and had his own classical-music show on a local radio station. He published his first short story, 'Beyond Lies the Wub' in 1952. Among his many fine novels are THE MAN IN THE HIGH CASTLE, TIME OUT OF JOINT, DO ANDROIDS DREAM OF ELECTRIC SHEEP? and FLOW MY TEARS, THE POLICEMAN SAID. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

I liked this short story which had everything a classic science fiction work needs.
Chris Fries
It's a beautifully nuanced story and explores PKD's most classic themes of exploring the difference between dreams and reality artistically and creatively.

The book is always better than the movie, but this classic really got shorted by cinema.

This story, like all Philip K. Dick stories adapted to film, is quite a different pace than what we see in the theater. His stories have more thought and less action than their cinematic counterparts, but are nonetheless very entertaining. I have been looking for quite some time for a kindle edition of the story "We Can Remember It For You Wholesale" (a.k.a. Total Recall) that was not included in the $15 download collection, of which I already have a hard copy. This story is under 20 pages long in a book, so do not be disapointed after purchasing that it is not a lengthy tale.

...still one of my favorite PKD stories, totally ruined the movies for me. As noted by previous reviewer, not available in previous Kindle collection, and well worth the ninety-nine cents.

This is a classic Phillip K. Dick story. They really shouldn't call it "Total Recall" though. It is really the short story "We Can Remember It For You Wholesale" on which the movie Total Recall is very loosely based.

That is where two movies came from? I am amazed I need to stop reading stuff Hollywood has adapted. At least for a while.

Very good short story about a man who wants to escape his ordinary life and may have gotten a lot more than he bargained for in the process.

This was a good short story. Not Dick's best but it's hard to beat The Variable Man. My primary complaint is the renaming of the book after a lame movie (referring to the 80s version .) Ok so I'm not such a Sci Fi purist that I minded the movie getting its own name but it is aggregious the book was renamed. Change it back!

For a short story with such fantastic ideas, one wonders how they've managed to make 2 movies out of it & still managed to miss the wonder of this story. Sure, some of the futuristic Dollie rackets

As a fan of the movie (the original with Arnold), I have always wanted to read the original story from PDK.

This is a short story. Quick read. And fun.

Don't expect the movie, though. This was obviously the inspiration, but other than the lead character, Mars, and Rekall, there is no similarity.

Totally worth the lower cost for the book and the shorter investment in time to read it.
