Read in December, 2008

Really interesting to see that this, The Zap Gun, and The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch were all written (or at least conceived) in the same year (along with Clans of the Alphane Moon, which I read before this). Granted, yes, the whole thing fits together like several different jigsaw puzzles all squished into one big picture, but then again, most of his novels are like that. And (at least as far as I'm concerned) it's that writing quality that the afterword compared to "downhill racing" (just go forward and don't look back) that I think really adds the, if not always "intelligent," then at least uniqueness that makes a PKD novel a PKD novel.
