Zoe's Human This is a rare case where I love the book and the movie equally. As you say, they complement each other.

P.E. I agree with you, also, it has been a rare occurrence of a book which visuals were not forced out by thoses of the movie, I envision it as something entirely different visually!

Olivia yeah these two almost aren't even related. Dick wrote a lot of pulp. Good concepts but shallow execution. I had to read a lot of his stuff for a class I took on him and was surprised at how bad a lot of those stories were. A Scanner Darkly is definitely the best thing he ever wrote (his writing style here was much more advanced than his other stuff).
I think Blade Runner- both renditions of it- are miles better than the book they stemmed from.

Especially the newest Blade Runner. That one stole my heart!

J.L.   Sutton I think the book and movie can inform each other (they are both driven by their own internal logic, though). Still need to watch the newest Blade Runner.

Deb Read this book a while ago. It was different for sure and if you like science fiction you may like this. I did read the whole book but not my type and would definitely not watch the movie if they made one.

J.L.   Sutton Science fiction is not all I read, but it's definitely part of the rotation. I think most people who enjoy science fiction and the more nebulous category of speculative fiction would like this book.
