In Radio Free Albemuth, his last novel, Philip K. Dick morphed and recombined themes that had informed his fiction from A Scanner Darkly to VALIS and produced a wild, impassioned work that reads like a visionary alternate history of the United States. Agonizingly suspenseful, darkly hilarious, and filled with enough conspiracy theories to thrill the most hardened paranoid, Radio Free Albemuth is proof of Dick's stature as our century's greatest science fiction writer.

This was one of the most satisfying and important reads of my life. Everyone should experience it - especially those with an affection for metaphysics - but even if you don't, this will open up your mind.
The plot seems to ramble and meander, and it approaches topics that could be really fun to explore, but just as you get your hopes up, it makes a hard left away from those things and into far less interesting ideas. This is a first draft, and reads like one. The copy I received, an old one from the shelf, probably printed in 1985 or so, contains numerous spelling errors and inconsistencies (Ferris F. Fremont / Ferris F. Freemont, for example).
Still, for a dedicated PKD fan, this book is worth cracking open, even if only to explore more of the man behind it. It also oozes with nostalgia for 50s/60s California counterculture, which is, in my opinion, one of its stronger points.
