"I'll sue you," the door said as the first screw fell out.
Joe Chip said, "I've never been sued by a door. But I guess I can live through it."
Chip works for Glen Runciter's anti-psi security agency, which hires out its talents to block telepathic snooping and paranormal dirty tricks. When its special team tackles a big job on the Moon, something goes terribly wrong. Runciter is killed, it seems--but messages from him now appear on toilet walls, traffic tickets, or product labels. Meanwhile, fragments of reality are timeslipping into past versions: Joe Chip's beloved stereo system reverts to a hand-cranked 78 player with bamboo needles. Why does Runciter's face appear on U.S. coins? Why the repeated ads for a hard-to-find universal panacea called Ubik ("safe when taken as directed")?
The true, chilling state of affairs slowly becomes clear, though the villain isn't who Joe Chip thinks. And this is Dick country, where final truths are never quite final and--with the help of Ubik--the reality/illusion balance can still be tilted the other way. --David Langford, Amazon.co.uk
Ubik (1969) is generally considered one of Phillip K. Dick’s best novels. I’ll say this much for it. Read morePublished 9 days ago by M. Buzalka

I always liked PKD but didn't expect that much given how long ago it was written. Wrong! Book captured me to the end.Published 24 days ago by Stacie
Dick has a great command of English and story telling. Minus one star because I'm still not 100% sure what Ubik is....Published 27 days ago by S. Bauerle
The concepts are really interesting. The writing is pretty utilitarian. I found the story hard to buy into - character's are kinda flat, the dramatic parts didn't pull me in. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Patrick Leer

Boring. Pointless. The "plot-twist" was visible for miles away. Maybe the work is just dated, I don't know.Published 1 month ago by harbqll
I have read three PKD novels: The Man in the High Castle, A Scanner Darkly and Ubik. I have to say that Ubik is one of the most fascinating novels that I have ever read. Read morePublished 1 month ago by James
