Erich Franz Linner-Guzmann I really like how you pointed out Dick's message in that A human being who lacks empathy, he is essentially saying, may as well be an android. Very, very true!

Another book that I personally recommend is "The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch". Like you said Dick was a professed Episcopalian, but from what I read by a letter he wrote, that when he wrote this novel he was questioning his religion. It really comes out in this novel. It is extremely dark and has a lot Christian innuendos. It really gave me the creeps but if you can handle that I highly recommend it.

Matt I think Dick was Episcopalian early in his life and career, but later became more Gnostic, and later still I don't think he was religious at all. I think the paranoia finally got to him.

Werner Thanks for that info, Matt; I'll have to read up more on his later life. (Yes, he was definitely pretty paranoid!)

Lyndon How would you compare this novel with the movie Bladerunner? I've not read either novel but am enjoying The Man in the High Castle on Amazon.

Werner Lyndon, that's a good question; but unfortunately, not one I can answer. I don't watch movies very often, and I've never seen Bladerunner (though I've heard of it). Sorry!
