Read from July 24 to August 02, 2010

This was a fairly good book reflecting some classic Philip Dick issues: can a robot ever be human, or at least more human than some humans? Can a human's deficiencies ever be serious enough to make them not count as a human? And then there are some basic themes, such as how a person copes with being in a difficult situation. And then there's the book being set in Oregon and often referencing Oakland, CA. I'm a sucker for things in books that relate to me like that.

If you like Philip Dick this is a good choice (I liked it better than Ubik, which is supposed to be one of his classics), but if you're only looking for a taste of PKD I would recommend _Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep_ or _The Man in the High Castle_ or _Dr. Bloodmoney_ more.
