really liked it

I can't say the writing is bad or the book dull, but the characters are just so unappealing. Its like sitting down for 2 days with the worst of your neighbours, work colleagues and extended family.
I think some of Dick's other main stream fiction is a head of its time in its realistic treatment of real life, but this one is people at their money grubbing, jealous, back stabbing worst with no ray of hope at the end.
