It was January 2021, and Rick Deckard had a license to kill. Somewhere among the hordes of humans out there, lurked several rogue androids. Deckard's assignment--find them and then..."retire" them. Trouble was, the androids all looked exactly like humans, and they didn't want to be found!

Endlich mal ein Schlusssatz, den ich mir merken kann.
Ich bin gespannt, wie die ältere Übersetzung ist. Die Seitenzahlen gehen auseinander. Im direkten Vergleich einer Stichprobe waren zwar Unterschiede, aber die waren minimal und rechtfertigen weder eine neue Übersetzung noch die höhere Seitenzahl.

Januari 2021. We hebben nog drie jaar voor we terechtkomen in de tijd waarin Philip K. Dick Blade Runner situeert, een verhaal dat, net als zijn Minority Report, A Scanner Darkly en Total Recall, uit de niche van de groezelige scifi werd gehaald en een groot publiek bereikte door de verfilming ervan. Afgelopen jaar speelde de als blockbuster vermomde arthouse

I - I really wanted to love this. Dystopian, Sci-Fi, philosophical questions . . . I had so many ideas when it started . . . and then it was a predictable story of angst and stupidity.

Disappointed, that is what I feel about this book. Examples: (view spoiler)

I'll be perfectly honest, I read this to get ready for the sequel and while I believe it helped, watching the first movie would have prepared me better as it modernizes things a bit (the author guessed woefully wrong on a bunch of things), even if it messes with some of the plot from the book.

No regrets though, glad I read it and was an interesting take on a potential future.

Wat een meester in de SF is Philip K. Dick toch. Jammer eigenlijk dat Lebowski geen extra stukje door iemand heeft laten schrijven over het boek en de films. Ik ben ook altijd benieuwd naar keuzes in de vertaling. Soms zag je het Engels er doorheen maar over het algemeen heb ik het gevoel dat het de stijl van Dick aardig overbrengt. Veel SF is dan ook niet erg mooi geschreven. Het gaat meestal om de ideeën en het verhaal en dat zit in dit boek wel goed.

Ik kon me trouwens de hele setting niet and
