Almost very female character is portrayed as weak, if they appeared at all in the stories. There was also A LOT of smoking. Both are signs of the time in which these stories were written (early to mid-50s). The stories themselves were okay. Not great, but entertaining. The plot is there, but the build-up and follow-through is missing....the stuff that gives a great book depth and complexity.

An Excellent Introduction into the Worlds of PKD

DISCLAIMER: I received this copy from the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of Audiobook Blast.

If you have never read any PKD, this is an excellent collection to start with! It provides a variety of short stories that range from supernatural horror to science fiction.

A word of caution, most of these stories are 60-odd years old, and feel dated both in social convention and reader impact. However,

The Nature of Reality (Audiobook)
How could I have missed out on the pleasure of the incredibly talented Philip K. Dick before now? This is the first collection of his works that I have listened to and I am not really sure how I missed reading some of his 44 published novels or ~121 short stories before. But... I have seen most of the 11 popular films (Total Recall, Minority Report, Impostor, Paycheck...) based on his works. Check out Wikipedia for a list of his works and adaptations of his work

I have been meaning to read some Philip K. Dick for a while, so I was very pleased to stumble across this selection of his short stories in audio format. This audiobook consists of about 13 different short stories, ranging from from topics of space-based sci-fi to "angels" and death to robot-filled Dystopian and Utopian futures. I'd recommend it if you are a Philip K. Dick fan looking for more or a neophyte looking for an introduction to Philip K. Dick. ...more

Woeful. I admire this novelist, but these space opera stories are just hopeless. The reader is dreadful, as well. To be avoided.
